If that estimate holds, it would edge out "Wonder Woman," which opened in June with $103 million its first weekend. It went on to gross $412.5 million worldwide, making it currently the second-highest grossing film of 2017. The critics hated "Batman v Superman," but the film still powered its way to $837 million worldwide.
Deadline suggests that estimate for "Justice League" could go up, once rival superhero film "Thor: Ragnarok" opens on November 3. The Marvel film, which is enjoying fantastic reviews, is currently estimated to open with $125 million.
"Justice League" teams up Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman ( Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) to battle Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds).
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes -- Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash -- it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
