The film starring British actor Henry Cavill as Superman, has earned over $280 million domestically and around $340 million overseas, not including Japan, where it is yet to open.
Robert Downey Jr.’s three-quel is breaking box office records passing the $1 billion in earnings.
Even with all its success Man of Steel still hasn’t managed to crack the top 50 highest grossing films of all time, but this does not mean that director Zack Snyder and company should be disappointed.
Some slammed Man of Steel for being too focused on Superman struggles with his alien condition and feeling like an outsider since he was a young boy.
To put things in perspective, the first installment of Iron Man brought in $585 million and Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga’s first film earned only $375 million in 2005.
