It has to be good and from the looks of it, it will be. MOS weakness was from the script and they just hired an Oscar worthy screen writer. It doesn't have to be the greatest thing since sliced bread. Just good.
I'm sure it will be a hit. A lot of people liked MOS (Showed in the DVD/Blue Ray sales) and SS has Joker which will be a guaranteed hit. And Will Smith who does well overseas (even his stinkers do well overseas). I'm predicting big money for SS.
I'm sure it will draw money, but I'm worried about staying power and the forced schedule. I mean I KNOW they could change it, but it will certainly look bad if they can't get through phase 1 without hiccups.
I'm not Joking, Boy
Ignore list: Abhi for the sake of the forum.
Well every studio including Marvel has hiccups. TIH underperformed in their Phase I.
But yeah Marvel's given us the Best and Quintessential track record for comic book heroes. They have 2 Billion dollar franchises and another 2 potential Billion dollar franchises. They've honestly changed cinema becoming the biggest brand name for movies.
So it's not like DC have to match their record to succeed. That's kinda an impossible target right now anyway. It's like Pepsi. They don't have to Beat Coke (this was their original mission statement) to be a big ass success themselves.
DC's on track to break that record. MOS made more money than most of Marvel Studios, including the first 2 Iron Man's. Suicide Squad will definitely make more than Incredible Hulk, and Batman V Superman will do more than MOS.
Then we have WW, Aquaman, the future Batman movies, Superman movies, etc...
