DC Extended Universe's much-awaited superhero film Justice League hit cinemas across the world on November 17. And rather unsurprisingly, this ensemble of DC's biggest superheroes has had the most polarising reception possible by the critics, just like its previous Batman vs Superman. However, at the Indian box office, Justice League was able to mint a total of Rs 7.82 crore on its opening day.

On the other hand, DC universe's sunnier competitor Marvel had a wondrous release in the form of Thor: Ragnarok at the theatres earlier this month. And compared to its box office performance, it is hard not to feel bad about the Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot starrer.

Thor: Ragnarok had opened at Rs 9.91 crore at the Indian box office, as tweeted by trade analyst Taran Adarsh. But Thor's rave reviews quickly hiked its pace and the film went on to make Rs 27.66 crore in the first weekend. A Forbes report said, "Still, Justice League won’t match Thor: Ragnarok’s ₹34 crore/$5.2 million opening weekend tally in India, the 2nd best for a Hollywood import this year behind the 41.7 crore debut of Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming."
