The Flash was eventually released in theaters last week, continuing the narrative Zack Snyder began in Batman v Superman in 2016.
This book in the series concluded the voyage in many respects. In addition to eliminating Henry Cavill’s Superman, it also eliminated Ben Affleck’s Batman and reset the entire timeline.
Regardless of how thrilling this may be, it evidently failed to attract moviegoers to theaters over the weekend.
The LA Times reports The Flash earned a meager $55.1 million during its inaugural weekend in the United States. (Via Comscore)
According to the same report, The Flash earned an additional $75 million in international theaters, bringing its total earnings to approximately $130,1 million.
DC Studios’ latest worldwide flop is The Flash.
In the past two years, The Flash has been plagued by numerous production issues. The arrest of its protagonist Ezra Miller, who was charged with burglary, stands out.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods, which was recently released, grossed a paltry $30,500,000 at the box office.
And Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Black Adam earned $67 million from domestic audiences in October 2022.
The Flash actually earned less than Black Adam during its debut weekend in the United States, but the race is not yet over.
The Flash still has the potential to recoup its $220 million budget over the next month, as there are no films that pose a significant threat to its success.
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 is the next major production to reach theaters on July 14, followed by Barbie and Oppenheimer on July 21.
