Matt Reeve’s The Batman not only made a Bruce Wayne-sized fortune in theaters, but it appears that it is also doing very well in the streaming universe.
The Batman’s second weekend only fell off by -50.7% from the previous weekend, bringing its domestic total to $238.5 million.
Featuring tremendous hand-to-hand combat sequences but light on character development despite its three-hour runtime, The Batman achieves the feel of a great Batman movie without capturing the soul of one.
With Robert Pattinson under the cowl, The Batman took in $57 million on Friday (including $21.6 million for late Thursday showings), and looks to have legs, with a positive fan and critical reception so far.
While Matt Reeves upcoming The Batman film looks to be a dark, meditative examination of the character, the Little Caesar’s tie-in is a little more “cheesy”.
Batman always sells, and the brands that are partnering with WarnerMedia for Matt Reeve’s upcoming The Batman film hope that it extends to traditional and non-traditional Batman toys, accessories, and luxury items.
