It seems to be like DC Studios isn’t anticipating a bit hit on the field workplace with its upcoming Blue Beetle film. Based on Deadline, the movie is monitoring a $30 million opening weekend on the field workplace and that’s undoubtedly a low and disappointing begin for a brand new superhero film.

Fury of the Gods, which was launched earlier within the 12 months solely made $30.5 million throughout its opening weekend, whereas The Flash pulled in $55 million. Bear in mind although, The Suicide Squad had a worse opening weekend with solely $26 million.
I don’t suppose this can be a shock to anybody, however what could be a nice shock is that if the film truly did have a greater opening weekend! Solely time will inform, although. This might go both means. It’s exhausting to inform, however Blue Beetle isn’t actually that in style of a superhero, so we’ll see. Regardless, I feel the film will ship some enjoyable leisure for households.
