It’s no secret that the fledgling DC Extended Universe appears to be floundering. Both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad met with a critical shellacking upon their releases and some unforgiving comic book fans have already declared the neophyte cinematic franchise dead on arrival.

If the Internet hate brigade is to be believed, Warner Bros would be better off pulling the plug and letting its suffering series die a dignified death. But, is the future of the DCEU really as dire as the naysayers would have us believe?

Hell no.

On the contrary, each entry in the DCEU has been a certified box office hit so far. In fact, judging by the box office alone, the DCEU isn’t struggling at all, it’s actually thriving.

To all you diehard DC fans that are sick of Marvel fans kicking you while you’re down I say rejoice: the future is looking very, very good. DC will not only bounce back from its critical slump, it's most likely going to overtake its stiffest competitor, Marvel, at the box office in the long-term.

There’s a strong case to be made for DC’s inevitable box office domination and here are just a few of the reasons why.
