At the moment, Diana is probably the only selling point of Justice League for many viewers, and therefore the only thing that might save it from being a (relative) box office bomb. As a huge Wonder Woman (the character) fan, I find that mind-boggling. It’s a ridiculous state of affairs that should never have been possible, but it’s what all the signs point towards.
Take the WW movie out of the equation, and it seems logical that JL would bring in less box office than BvS. Enough people disliked BvS that you’ve got to assume any follow-up would have diminished returns. The unique selling point for BvS was, literally, Batman versus Superman. What does JL have to top that? There aren’t enough Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg fans in the world to add any impact at all to the inherent pulling power of Batman and Superman. Once you’ve squandered Bats and Supes, you’ve got nothing left.
Until now. The only hope that Justice League has is Wonder Woman’s new fan base.
As a fan, I can only be happy about that. But still:
