It’s official, Aquaman is the highest grossing DCEU movie. It’s a hard statistic to accept, but also pretty awesome if I’m being honest. Somehow, audiences have been showing up in a big way to see Jason Momoa toss a trident around, so much so that it’s on track to become the first movie in Warner Bros’ fledging cinematic universe to cross a billion dollars (a feat that Marvel has pulled off a few times already).
