Aquaman 2 Surpasses The Marvels In Box Office Showdown: DC’s Underwater Epic Doubles Marvel’s Earnings Speed

The box office earnings of ‘Aquaman 2’ and ‘The Marvels’ brought a new victory to the DCEU in its cinematic battle against the MCU.

The DC Extended Universe has had its fair share of ups and downs at the box office, often finding itself in the shadow of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But the recent release of ‘Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom’ has marked a notable shift with its earnings against ‘The Marvels.’

At the global box office, ‘Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom’ has made a significant impact, crossing the $200 million mark in its second week. In comparison, ‘The Marvels’ earned just under $199 million over a four-week period in theaters, which was the lowest for an MCU movie. This means that the ‘Aquaman’ sequel achieved the earnings of the Marvel film twice as fast.

A Big Difference Between The Two Films’ Box Office Performance

The initial performance of ‘Aquaman 2’ was not as strong as expected, especially compared to the early showings of ‘The Marvels.’ However, the film showed a much smaller drop in its second weekend, with a 29% decline in earnings, leaving its rival behind.

The 2023 sequel became the second highest-earning DCEU film, following 2018’s ‘Aquaman.’ In contrast, ‘The Marvels’ experienced a more significant decrease in ticket sales as the weeks went on.

The Competition Is Still Up With New Projects In Line

Both Aquaman and Captain Marvel had successful origin films, each surpassing the $1 billion mark. Still, their sequels show different trends in audience interest and box office performance. It’s important to remember, though, that the success of each studio depends on more factors than two films.

Looking to the future, the MCU has a lineup of films planned for 2024, including ‘Deadpool 3,’ while DC is preparing for a new start with ‘Superman: Legacy’ set to launch in the summer of 2025. The DCEU’s one-year break will make a difference between the two companies through the upcoming months.
