As a character who is best known for talking to fish, Aquaman has been the brunt of many jokes, but Warner Bros. and director James Wan are the ones laughing now: with its current earnings of over $940M, film finance experts say the aquatic hero’s silver-screen debut will cross $1 billion next weekend. (Despite starring the most famous comic duo of all time, WB’s Batman v. Superman “only” managed $873M.) Female audiences evidently loved the film, while fans credited Wan for creating a regal underwater world. He’s a bigger deal overseas where WB officially reports what we’ve all been expecting for days that the the DC superhero has scaled to $940.7M WW with $681M overseas. Nancy reported that’s the best overseas haul for a DC pic abroad. On a global basis Aquaman is ahead of DC’s Batman v. Superman ($873.6M), Sony/Marvel’s Venom ($855M), Warners/DC’s Wonder Woman ($821.8M), and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($863.7M). Film finance sources believe it’s inevitable that Aquaman crosses $1 billion next weekend.
