"Aquaman" is exceeding expectations at the box office and has breathed new life into Warner Bros.' DC Comics movie franchise. Here are all of the DC movies that have been confirmed or reported to be in development after "Aquaman." Warner Bros. plotted a course correction for its DC Comics movies after "Justice League" disappointed at the box office last year, with a plan to focus more on standalone movies and less on the DC Extended Universe.

'Aquaman' tops 'Mary Poppins Returns' and 'Bumblebee' to become king of the weekend box office

"Aquaman" won the weekend box office with an estimated $72.1 million. It beat out other big releases out this weekend, "Mary Poppins Returns" and "Bumblebee." "Aquaman" now has a worldwide total of over $480 million. Warner Bros. sure is happy there wasn't a "Star Wars" release this holiday season.  The Disney franchise has dominated the end-of-year box office since 2015's "The Force Awakens," which led to analysts uncertainty over whether a single movie would be able to pick up the slack at ...

'Aquaman' director James Wan explains why he thought it was a safe superhero movie choice. And why he was wrong.

Director James Wan chose to make "Aquaman" because he thought it was the superhero "everyone makes fun of," so he'd get to make it under the radar. It backfired as "Justice League" bombing at the box office put more pressure on "Aquaman" to succeed.  Wan told Business Insider why making "Furious 7" helped prepare him for the pressures of making the DC Comics movie.   Director James Wan thought he had made the perfect choice when he was offered to do a superhero movie three years ago. “They as...

Aquaman May Be Silly But It’s Buoyed by Some Old-Fashioned Pulp Spirit

The Saturday-afternoon-serial spirit is almost totally gone from movies. We have plenty of movies based on comic books, but very few that are in touch with those comics’ pulp roots.

'Aquaman' has already made more money than its production budget, and is looking at a big opening in the US

"Aquaman" has already made over $266 million at the international box office, more than its estimated production budget of $160 million.

'Aquaman' director James Wan chose the character 'everyone makes fun of' because there'd be less pressure. Then the DC Comics franchise imploded.

"Aquaman" director James Wan talked to Business Insider about the movie already breaking box-office records. He spoke about how making a movie like "Furious 7" prepared him for the pressures of making a DC Comics movie, especially one that needed to be a hit with audiences following the disappointing "Justice League" release. Wan also explained why looking over 2,000 visual effects shots for this movie made him feel like he had made an animated movie. And he expressed his love for the Pitbull ...
