DC Films’ Aquaman continues to overperform at the box office, and today, it has passed a key milestone that sets it on track for a new high in the franchise.
Aquaman has now surpassed Wonder Woman as the second highest grossing DC film worldwide, with $822.9 million. This includes a massive $606 million from overseas. The only title that has made more is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which grossed $873 million in 2016. However, at the rate it’s going, Aquaman will soon surpass that one. Not only that, but it will reach a milestone met by few comic book movies, especially from DC.
Assuming that the film continues to have great legs, Aquaman will easily pass $900 million worldwide, and reaching $1 billion is a legitimate possibility. No other DC movie, outside of The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, has ever made this much. Meanwhile, Marvel Studios has reached that mark several times, most notably with the Avengers series.
Stay tuned for more box office updates as we have them.
