Who would have thought 10 years ago before DC started putting their characters on the big screen that Aquaman would be their most successful film. Over Man of Steel. Over Batman v. Superman. Over Justice League. Hell, over Dark Knight Rises!!!
Aquaman has now grossed over 900 million dollars worldwide. It should crack a billion dollars by the time it leaves theaters. Aquaman had, until the early 2000s, been a joke of a character. However thanks to a writer like Geoff Johns and a director with a vision like James Wan, the character has been given a badass makeover worthy of a king.
Jason Momoa‘s charm teamed up with amazing never before seen undersea set pieces gave audiences a groundbreaking film. A sequel is already being discussed.
The film stars Jason Momoa as the title character, with Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Nicole Kidman in supporting roles. It is the third live-action theatrical film featuring Aquaman, following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice(2016) and Justice League (2017), and the first full-length feature film centered around the character. In Aquaman, Arthur Curry, the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, must step forward to lead his people against his half-brother, Orm, who seeks to unite the seven underwater kingdoms against the surface world.
