Aquaman was really divisive among critics. It’s not at all surprising since it’s a movie that features Jason Momoa riding a Lovecraftian sea monster out of the Earth. Although it is now standing on top of the DC charts, Aquaman is only the 7th top-grossing comic book inspired movie. You might be wondering about the six names above it right? Well, all the movies that made it to the top six are from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They are Iron Man 3, Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther, and three Avengers films on the top spots. And in case you’re still questioning about the order, it is Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, respectively.
