“ The Batman ” continued its triumphant march at the worldwide box office for its second weekend: In the USA, the DC film revenue collapsed by only 51 percent, which is sensational for a blockbuster of this magnitude and shows continued interest and positive word of mouth. Overall, «The Batman» now stands at $463.2 million in worldwide box office as of March 14, 2022.
Incidentally, with 51 percent less revenue on the second weekend, «The Batman» is well ahead of other films with the Dark Knight, most of which slumped much more sharply, such as » Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice » (down 69 percent on the second weekend) or even » The Dark Knight ” (down 53 percent).
And even the Marvel mega-hit » Spider-Man: No Way Home » dropped significantly more on the second weekend in the USA (namely by 67.5 percent), but at the same time recorded significantly more in this period . So «The Batman» won’t come close to «No Way Home», but the film is still one of the biggest Hollywood hits of the pandemic.
First milestone within reach
So far, only four Hollywood films have surpassed the 500 million dollar mark at the worldwide box office during Corona: the aforementioned «No Way Home», as well as » James Bond: No Time To Die «, » Fast & Furious 9 » and » Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage «.

In view of the amount already raised and the continued interest, it is already clear: «The Batman» will also surpass the 500 million dollar mark — an important milestone for the cinema and Studio Warner. The coming weeks and months will show how far the bat wings “The Batman” can carry.
«Venom 2» ($502 million worldwide) will definitely surpass «The Batman» whether the film also tops «Fast & Furious 9» ($726 million) and «No Time To Die» ($774 million) or It remains to be seen whether the magic billion mark will even come (and will also depend on the huge film market in China, where the film will start on March 18, 2022).
