American superhero film ‘Aquaman’ has become the highest-grossing DC Comics film in history.
The film starring hunk Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, and Nicole Kidman passed the $1.09 Billion landmark at the worldwide box office over the weekend, according to an article by BangShowbiz.
Momoa plays Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman, the half-human, half-Atlantean true heir to the throne of Atlantis. The Hawaiian native and father of two recently posted saying he owes his success from his fans. He highlighted his achievements from acting on Baywatch to the billion dollar ‘Aquaman’ film.
The achievement means that ‘Aquaman’ has surpassed Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ which earned $1.08 billion worldwide in 2012 in the list of the highest-grossing DC Comics movies.
The internationally acclaimed ‘Wonder Woman’ which stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine earned $821 Million worldwide.
The 39-year-old actor previously admitted to being shocked when he was cast as Aquaman in the record-breaking film. The Hollywood star actually thought he was more suited to a villainous role in the DC movie.
According to various entertainment websites, there is speculation about an ‘Aquaman’ sequel.
