Shazam looks to be a hit, but how does its box office compare to the DCEU?
1 / 9
The movie opened with $159.1 million worldwide.
2 / 9
That is the lowest debut in the short history of the DCEU (7 movies).
3 / 9
Ironically, disappointments like Justice League made more in their first weekends.
4 / 9
That's because they featured popular heroes like Batman and Superman, so there was more hype.
5 / 9
Though Shazam was well-received critically, the character isn't as recognizable.
6 / 9
Still, this doesn't mean Shazam is a failure by any means.
7 / 9
Its low budget meant it never needed to break records to be profitable.
