Six movies over the course of 365 days isn't that bad.

Aquaman is unique enough to interest people. There aren't many movies out there that fall in the underwater action category, much less live-action movies revolving around Atlantis.

With Arthur embracing his role as King of the Seven Seas embracing his destiny as King of Atlantis I wonder if the Atlanteans will be in favor of him taking the throne? I mean we know of course his brother Ocean Master/Orm wants the throne and he will do anything to get his brother out even if it means killing Arthur but it begs the question of other Atlanteans in this kingdom

Surely they probably are in agreement that Arthur should be the king because he is the first born of Queen Atlanna but then again some won't be in favor because of the fact that he is not full Atlantean he is only half Atlantean because he is half human

JL was released after numerous comic book movies that were successful like GotG 2, WW, Logan and Spider-Man HC, Regardless of movie's quality coming last hurt JL. By the time JL was released people were looking for other options like Coco, Star Wars, Murder on the Orient Express. hardly anyone was ready for another comic book movie.

Aquaman faces same problem. After watching Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Ant Man and Wasp, Deadpool 2, Venom and Dark Phoenix ... I really think Aquaman will be the movie when everyone and their mom will say.. "I have seen enough of these superhero movies, I would rather see something else."

One wonders why WB have such poor planning when it comes to DC movies.
I don't think that superhero fatigue is an issue. The issue was the overall quality of the movie, and the fact that it had nowhere near the same levels of hype as Thor. Same goes for Star Wars.

Plus it will be interesting to see the world of Atlantis...hopefully they are as technological as a people underwater than what the people of Themyscira are

Aquaman director James Wan sinks 'ridiculous' villains rumor

Quote:
“This is what I’ll say: I don’t have three villains,” Wan exclusively told EW. “I think that’s ridiculous! I would never go into an origin movie with three villains. We don’t even know the main character let alone the world and its antagonist. I believe in taking baby steps.”

So … maybe two villains then?

“I want to introduce Arthur Curry in a much more emotional and powerful way, and introduce Mera played by Amber Heard, and of course there’s Nicole Kidman and Temuera Morrison playing his parents,” the Furious 7 director added. “We know Black Manta is in there, but I will say this: Patrick Wilson is the main antagonist in this film. I wouldn’t necessarily say ‘villain,’ but he’s the antagonist.”

And there you have it. It’s that’s a relief that Wan is keeping the film focused on mainly a single vill … antagonist, rather than creating, say, a Spider-Man 3-type situation in an origin movie.

Wan is very confident on Aquaman. I'm hyped!

At least he knows how to dispel rumors when necessary.

When Dolph Lundgren was announced, Wan did say that he wasn't a villain in this movie.

Folks at WB and DC Films could take cues from the likes of Wan and Jenkins as far as smacking down the rumors and responding to misleading headlines. They're out on the frontlines to safeguard their products. Heck, even David Ayer at times when he responds to folks about Suicide Squad, but that's well after the fact.

Also Ayer's responses don't make him look particularly bright

Wan is great at this stuff

Which one do you mean, though? There's been the piecemeal responses he's given to folks on Twitter who keep asking or trolling him about it, and then there was the longer one we got...sometime after the film came out where he talked about things he'd change, like making the Joker the main villain.
