Those ticket sales still rank as the biggest opening weekend of 2022, as well as only the second pandemic-era movie to cross the $100 million mark in a single weekend following 'Spider-Man: No Way Home'. With $759 million to date at the global box office, 'The Batman' is currently the highest grossing movie of the year.
