The latest numbers for Aquaman are in, and now the James Wan-directed DCEU movie is closing in on a billion dollars thanks to the international box office.
Aquaman has a current worldwide gross of a whopping $822,037,603, with a massive $606,600,000 million coming from the foreign gross, and $215,437,603 for the U.S. gross.
It remains to be seen if Aquaman will reach a billion, but it will certainly top $900 million. Only the Christopher Nolan Dark Knight Batman movies have reached the magic billion dollar number for DC.
Aquaman is currently ranked as the 36th best comic book adaptation domestically and passes Sony’s recent Venom movie. In the U.S., it’s also ahead of X-Men 2, Batman Begins, Thor: The Dark World, Amazing Spider-Man Returns, Superman Returns, Thor, Ant-Man and Captain America: The First Avenger.
There really aren’t too many good movies coming out until January 18 when Glass gets released, so Aquaman should continue to do just fine at the box office.
Warner Bros. hasn’t yet announced a sequel, but given the incredible box office, expect an announcement or at least talk of a sequel soon. James Wan only signed on for one movie, but hopefully, WB is able to get him back onboard. If Aquaman 2 gets greenlit sooner rather than later, maybe the sequel could be in theaters late 2020 or more likely 2021 at the earliest.
