LOS ANGELES (AP) — Step aside, Batman and Superman. Melissa McCarthy is “The Boss” at the box office now.

The actress’ latest comedy narrowly topped “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” at the weekend box office with a $23.5 million debut, according to comScore estimates Sunday. “The Boss” stars McCarthy as an over-the-top business mogul attempting to rebound after being convicted of insider trading.

McCarthy’s win wasn’t a total knockout. The Warner Bros. superhero smackdown starring Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight and Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel nabbed $23.4 million in its third weekend. “Batman v Superman” has earned an estimated $296.7 million to date.

Disney’s animated “Zootopia” came in third place with $14.4 million in its sixth weekend, bringing its total domestic haul to $296 million.
