According to CBR, in order for the movie to break even is $600 million when everything is factored in. Production budget ($250 million, plus $25 million in reshoots, then there's the millions spent on promotion costs).
And considering the movie already has mixed reviews and a 43% (currently) rating on Rotten Tomatos, this movie isn't going to be the success the CW wish it to be.
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
