Following the underwhelming box office performance and negative critical reception of Justice League the year before, Warner Bros. was taken by surprise when Aquaman was released in 2018.
With nearly $1.1 billion made at the global box office, Jason Momoa and Amber Heard's superhero blockbuster continues to be the highest-grossing DC film of all time.
For the past six months or so, I've heard a lot of people say that it's dull, not as excellent as the first one, and possibly one of the worst DCEU films.
Nevertheless, I've been hearing similarly negative things. "Aquaman 2 Terrible," MyTimeToShineHello just added.
Another insider adds that the poor quality of the movie is the reason Momoa is rumoured to be playing Lobo in James Gunn's relaunched DC Universe.
