This being a good movie is just extra as far as the studio is concerned
What will make this movie break box office is how good it is though because those adults will see the film 4-5 times if it is good. If the movie is bad to mediocre, then WB/DC only gets one ticket sale from them.
The movie is still going to have Batman and Superman in the same screen so that alone will get peoples butts to the seats. I mean this has been a dream coming true 70+ years in the making but to really make money and hit that #1 spot, the movie has to be really good, doesn't even have to be TDK good, story just have to be above average good because we know there isn't going to be a shortage of action with Snyder directing.
