Holy Box Office, Robin! Warner Bros. Says “The Batman” Has Already Taken in $21 Million!



“The Batman” has raked in $21 million in Thursday previews and other fan events.

So Warner Bros. reports, and the day has barely begun. Are we looking at a $100-$150 million opening weekend? Wouldn’t that be swell, fellow Bat lovers?

Unlike the last year or more of WB movies this one is not available on HBO Max. You’ve got to get pick yourself up and go to a theater! You can do it! You’ll like it!

Will “The Batman” knock off “SpiderMan”? Doubtful, but you never know. Will moviegoers start going to movies like “Belfast” and “West Side Story” again? Let’s hope so!

Stay tuned to that same Bat dial, Gotham City freaks! Let’s see where this goes!
