The Original Justice League Post-Credits Scene Featured Green Lantern

"I think people feel besieged and uncertain about the world - wondering what is really in the hearts of their neighbors - and this movie shows that there is much goodness in most of us".

DC's "Justice League" dominated the international box office in its opening weekend with $185.5 million at approximately 47,000 screens in 65 markets, led by $51.7 million in China.

That's not bad, but "Wonder Woman" brought in $11 million for its Thursday night screenings, and that film wasn't packed with superheroes. $38.8 million (including that $13 million) and that's less than half BvS's opening day.

With that all as context, The Wrap reports that a clutch of DC fans have launched a petition asking Warner release Snyder's "director's cut" of the film on home video, complete with all the footage he shot and with the original score by Tom Holkenborg (Junkie XL) which was replaced by music from Danny Elfman for the current version of the film.

One film that did have a heroic showing this weekend is "Wonder", an adaptation of R.J. Palacio's novel about a child with a facial deformity that stars Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay.

While the film has been received well in the foreign markets, it is hard to see it surpass the weekend tally of this year's Marvel films like Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok.

The Dark Knight is joined by Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot, again a formidable asset), as well as the newcomers, who, almost of necessity, fall into convenient baskets. Friday, although the Will Ferrell-Mark Wahlberg comedy has the advantage to take fourth place. They find them in The Flash (Ezra Miller), a university student who can move at the speed of light, Cyborg (Ray Fisher), a former athlete who was cybernetically reconstructed after an accident, and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) heir to the throne Atlantis and a hell of a swimmer. There's disappointment in not seeing see this one break $200M, coming in about 16% below Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice while this was seen as DC's Avengers.

"There's a place where [Aquaman] goes down to, and it got cut out of the movie".

The image showed Arthur swimming up to a stone statue, seemingly dressed in the armor he would eventually wear when fighting alongside the League, holding a trident in one hand, seated on something of a throne, and wearing what sure looks to be a crown. Need we remind you of the epic battle in Civil War? Sony expects the movie, cofinanced with Walden Media, to chug along until Christmas. But this film is dull, deadly dull, and may even jeopardise plans for Ben Affleck's first standalone appearance as Batman.

Thus enter that old mainstay of angry internet mobs everywhere: the petition.

Justice League is directed by Zack Synder.

The Thanksgiving holiday should not be discounted either in its potential to boost a film's earnings, and the only, albeit formidable, competition will be from Disney and Pixar's latest "Coco". True, the individual scenes are pure gold and that is a testament to the entire production crew but the movie-goers went to watch a full solid movie not any disjointed mess of movie fragment of a few mins here and there. In Brazil, JL's $14.2M (46.6M real) start is the biggest industry opening weekend ever.
