The film grossed over $1.1 billion worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing DCEU film as well as the highest-grossing film based on a DC Comics character, surpassing The Dark Knight Rises; it was also the fifth highest-grossing film of 2018 and 20th highest of all-time. It received praise from critics for its adventurous tone, the performances and Wan’s direction, but criticism for its dialogue, 143 minute runtime, and convoluted plot. An untitled sequel is set for release on December 16, 2022 and a spin-off, The Trench, is also in development. (Source: Wikipedia)
