What should probably come as no surprise, the opening weekend for Batman Vs. Superman is tracking pretty big amongst insiders.

THR reports Batman vs. Superman is tracking as high as a $140 million opening weekend - if not more - with low-end estimates stating around $110 million.

Man of Steel opened with $116.6 million back in 2013; The Dark Knight netted $158 million in 2008; TDRK $160m.

The current best opener in the month of March is The Hunger Games with $152.5 million.

Marvel's The Avengers opened with a $207 million weekend back in 2012; Age Of Ultron had $191.2M.

More than likely, once Batman Vs. Superman debuts on Thursday and Friday, word-of-mouth will affect how well the movie continues to do. If audiences rave about it, it's possible Batman Vs. Superman could do as well as the Deadpool opener or better ($132.4 million over the three-day Presidents Day weekend; Deadpool's four-day haul was $152.2 million).

Another bonus for the movie is that it lands during the Holiday break, so kids are off of school, which could give the box office numbers a bump.

Batman vs. Superman could potentially make $300-$350 million worldwide in its opening weekend.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has a March 25, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter as Senator Finch and Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves. 


Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
