I always see this argument
"it will kill on dvd"
presented everytime a movie does poorly at the box office.
Sure it happens that it might sell okay, or in rare cases become huge on DVD and keep the franchise alive. But ultimately the people who didn't watch it in the theatre aren't going to pay twice the amount of a movie ticket to own it at home.
And I liked John Carter, but I doubt it will be huge on DVD. Disney DVDs/BluRays always seem to linger at the full price mark a lot longer than any other studio.
