After destroying all of its competition at the box office last month James Wan’s Aquaman hasn’t lost any steam at all. Looking at the numbers during the past couple of weeks it was only a matter of time before it would reach the $1 billion mark. I’ll be honest, I thought the movie was going to be a success. Just not this type of success. There aren’t too many films in that $1 billion bracket. And for Aquaman’s name to be up there with the likes of The Dark Knight, The Avengers and Star Wars is crazy. What an achievement! Fully deserved too in my opinion. Not only is Aquaman one of the few comic book movies to make the $1 billion, it’s actually the first in the DCEU to do it. Keep in mind the movie hasn’t even been out for a full month yet in certain countries. This number is only going to rise. As for James Wan, he now has two $1 billion dollar movies in his filmography as Aquaman joins his 2015 hit, Furious 7. It’s only a matter of when, not if we get an Aquaman sequel now. I wouldn’t be surprised if the studio after this success look at Wan for the next Justice League movie in the future.
Congratulations to the cast and crew involved!
P.S. It’s also nice to show the studio that not only Batman can make money at the box office.
