Global opening Aquaman Sequel

While the domestic reception seemed lukewarm, Aquaman’s global appeal shone brighter, securing $80.1 million internationally, totaling a robust $120.1 million in global opening earnings. Directed by James Wan, the sequel revolves around Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta’s renewed efforts to thwart Jason Momoa’s Aquaman. The star-studded ensemble sees Patrick Wilson, Nicole Kidman, and Amber Heard reprising their roles from the original blockbuster that raked in close to $1.2 billion, reigning as the highest-grossing film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU).

Momoa, despite leading the film, expressed uncertainty about returning to the Aquaman mantle, citing audience reception as a pivotal factor in the character’s future. However, with reported box office figures against a hefty $205 million budget, the outlook appears less than promising. Compounded by DC Studios’ ongoing superhero strategy overhaul under James Gunn and Peter Safran’s guidance, the cinematic landscape remains in flux, leaving the fate of Aquaman’s world uncertain in the eyes of both fans and industry insiders.
