DC has had some setbacks. The recent past has not been what you would exactly call as friendly for Warner Bros’ backed DC Extended Universe. Man of Steel was a failure. Batman vs. Superman was a critical flop. Suicide Squad is a stain on the DC movie franchise and will forever remain like that. Apart from Wonder Woman, the DC Extended Universe has not managed to give us a single good movie. That is about to change with Aquaman. The James Wan production is about to get a premiere like none other and we have figures to back up this claim.
Believe it or not, Aquaman is forecasted to be so successful that it has already outdone two blockbuster superhero movies already in advanced ticket sales. One of those movies is everyone’s all-time favourite Avengers: Infinity War!!! Presenting – Aquaman trumps MCU juggernaut Avengers: Infinity War in advanced ticket sales!!
Justice League is the latest entry to the DC universe. We all know how ‘good’ the Box Office earnings of the movie were. The movie was mired with a lot of controversies like Zack Snyder leaving the DCEU after the unfortunate and untimely death of his daughter and Joss Whedon coming into the fold to riddle the movie with unnecessary reshoots.
The ‘Mustache-Gate’ scandal was also of no help. DCEU needs a winner, desperately. And James Wan might just have the recipe for saving this fledgling superhero world from going down under. The ticket sales of Aquaman are a testament to that fact.
Deadline reports some astonishing numbers. The pre-booking sales for Aquaman are a staggering lot. In Atom Tickets, the movie has already outdone Infinity War in the first 24 hours itself. Amazon Prime members are considered to be the prime reason for such a surge in Aquaman ticket bookings.
In other sites, Aquaman has also outdone several other awesome 2018 movies that were a hit at the Box Office this year like Venom and Mission Impossible: Fallout. These are just the figures for the first day pre-ticket sales. Trust us, there is plenty more to come.
The DCEU could finally have something to look forward to this year. No DC movie has ever received a generally positive consensus when it comes to pre-release reviews of its movie ventures. Wonder Woman also got a rather neutral and lukewarm response by the critics who changed their minds only after the public welcomed the movie with open arms.
This time though, James Wan has made sure that the critics speak from their heart and not be the mouthpiece of the general trend. This time we have Aquaman, which is, as claimed by one of the early reviewers of the movie, could be the strongest offering of the DC Extended Universe.
Aquaman will be releasing on the 14th of next month. Book your tickets before it is too late. For our sites will be filled with spoilers by then. Hurry up!!!
Aquaman first appeared in the MCU in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
It’s been nearly two years since Superman’s (Henry Cavill) colossal battle with Zod (Michael Shannon) devastated the city of Metropolis. The loss of life and collateral damage left many feeling angry and helpless, including crime-fighting billionaire Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). Convinced that Superman is now a threat to humanity, Batman embarks on a personal vendetta to end his reign on Earth, while the conniving Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) launches his own crusade against the Man of Steel.
The last Avengers movie to be released under the MCU banner was Avengers: Infinity War. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artefacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
