AQUAMAN Sequel In Talks

Aquaman,Ralph Breaks The Internet,Aquaman movie

Although the film doesn't hit North American screens for another two weeks, the sixth entry in DC's Extended Universe has opened with a bang in China, pulling down almost $25 million dollars in its first day of release.

Typically, DC's films have not enjoyed the kind of rapturous reception that Chinese audiences regularly bestow on the offerings of rival Marvel Studios. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. executive Toby Emmerich has already started preliminary discussions about a sequel, though the report acknowledged that Warner Bros. hadn't hired a writer yet.

Throughout the movie, it is Mera who guides and trains Aquaman (Jason Momoa) on this new world he's never been a part of, as well as saving his ass on more than one occasion.

There are lots of projects in development, but right now the studio needs solid franchises other than Wonder Woman within the DCEU, and Aquaman could prove to be the next solo franchise that sets them on that path, particularly when you consider that those box office projections come on a weekend that also includes Mary Poppins Returns and Bumblebee.

In the United States, the film is now tracking for a $65 million-plus opening.

From the look of things, Aquaman is going to be a massive hit before it even reaches the United States audiences. Aquaman might change the game for DC though.

This report comes at a time when Warner Bros.is still looking for more key pillars of its DC Extended Universe, as the future landscape of that megafranchise continues to take shape in the wake of Justice League.

Jason Momoa famously takes the lead and is backed up by an eye-catching cast of Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Nicole Kidman in supporting roles.
