‘Aquaman’ overtakes ‘Wonder Woman’ in global box office total

Aquaman just slid past Wonder Woman‘s international box office, earning over $822 million (Wonder Woman earned $821.8 million globally).

This makes Aquaman the second-highest DC Extended Universe global box office, behind 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Wonder Woman is still winning the domestic box office (it reached $330 million while Aquaman is around $189 million), but Aquaman‘s international sales have boosted its performance immensely, particularly in China. 

Both Aquaman and Wonder Woman made their debuts in Dawn of Justice, along with Ezra Miller as the Flash. The film reached the $873.6 million mark globally – a goal Aquaman is on track to achieve, having been in theaters only two weeks thus far. 

Wonder Woman remains the most critically acclaimed DCEU movie from Warner Bros., based on its Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes scores. It has a sequel due out in 2020. 

Aquaman is now in theaters.
