Aquaman (2018) Review

THE HERO OF THE DCEU


 

It goes without saying that Marvel’s cinematic universe of superheroes (i.e. the “MCU”) has proven to be a juggernaut franchise force, producing connected shared universe of superheroes feature films since 2008. Thus, in an attempt to show their superhero determination in Hollywood, Warner Bros. Pictures produced the DCEU (DC Extended Universe), utilizing the superheroes characters from DC Comics in a way to combat the Marvel’s cinematic universe. Beginning back in 2013 with their initial first film release Man of Steel, the DCEU has (unfortunately) had a bumpy road in producing a solid foundation to build upon. While Man of Steel showcased the grandeur superhero purpose and ambition of what the studio wanted to showcases for their own shared universe of comic book heroes and villains, their follow-up sequels Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad (both released in 2016), while were considered financially successful, were received with heavy scrutiny, criticism, and division amongst critics as well as moviegoers. A year later, 2017’s Wonder Woman provided the DCEU with a proper footing, with the film reaching critical acclaim, receiving largely positive reviews and having an incredible lucrative run at the box office during its theatrical release. However, just as Wonder Woman set up the proper stage for the DCEU to be successful, Justice League (the DCEU’s first large ensemble superhero team up feature) was released during the latter months of 2017 and was heavy criticized by critics and fans as well as underperforming at the box office with the franchise’s lowest number. Thus, with the failed prospects of the Justice League not reaching its intended goal, the lingering shadow of doubt has been cast upon the DCEU, spelling out an uncertain future for this once potential superhero shared universe. Now, a year after the release of Justice League, Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan present the next installment in the DCEU with the superhero movie Aquaman. Can this cinematic undersea adventure rise to the occasion of being the “shining beacon” for the DCEU or is it the final nail in the coffin for this shared comic book universe? Read more
