Surprisingly, the most recent installment appears to be plunging even deeper into disappointment, setting its sights on breaking a regrettable 20-year record. The film has thankfully managed to surpass its budget, but might still be at a loss considering the studio’s marketing budget for the film.

Blue Beetle Continues Its Disastrous Run

Guided by director Ángel Manuel Soto, Blue Beetle stands as a trailblazing cinematic undertaking. It signifies Hollywood’s first-ever live-action superhero film with a Latino lead character in the spotlight. This groundbreaking project features Xolo Maridueña as the protagonist and assembles a cast of notable talents, including Adriana Barraza, Damían Alcázar, Raoul Max Trujillo, Susan Sarandon, George Lopez, Elpidia Carrillo, Bruna Marquezine, Belissa Escobedo, Harvey Guillén, and Becky G.

The film has $110 million globally after three weeks in the theaters. However, the film’s budget was $104 million. To put things in perspective, Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman made $132 million in just two days of its release.

According to experts, it’s anticipated that the domestic earnings for Blue Beetle will cap at approximately $70 million, a figure that doesn’t even reach 25% of the domestic revenue generated by Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, which raked in $291 million.

Will Blue Beetle Be DCEU’s Lowest-grossing film?

Blue Beetle has now earned the rather undesirable distinction of having the lowest opening since 2004 when Halle Berry’s Catwoman also began with lackluster figures. Nevertheless, the journey ahead seems to be a challenging uphill battle for Blue Beetle as it strives to contribute to the studio’s revenue. Reports indicate that the studio is already contending with losses of roughly $200 million stemming from The Flash.

Conversely, Greta Gerwig’s Barbie has made significant strides, recently amassing $21.5 million in the domestic box office and an additional $26 million from international markets. This achievement has firmly cemented its global box office earnings at an astonishing $1.279 billion.

Blue Beetle is currently running in theaters.
