justice league

Even with over a half billion dollars grossed at the international box office, there’s no denying it: Justice League isn’t pulling the numbers Warner Bros. needed it to pull. It’s certainly not doing Avengers-level business. At this rate, the film probably won’t even hit $300 million at the domestic box office, where it will be handily outgrossed by the third Thor movie. Something had to be done. Heads had to roll. And now, it sounds like Warner Bros. is picking up the axe.

A major shake-up is underway at the studio’s comic book production division, with producers being shuffled around in the wake of Justice League‘s disappointing box office. And there’s more to come.

Aquaman underwater scenes

But don’t let that scare you off from the character’s upcoming solo movie: director James Wan has revealed that his Aquaman underwater scenes are going to be different than the air bubble approach we saw in Zack Snyder’s movie.

man of steel aquaman

The world (or ocean) of the DC Extended Universe may be a lot smaller than we anticipated. The shared cinematic universe was born fairly recently, launched from Zack Snyder‘s 2013 Superman origin movie, Man of Steel. But it turns out Snyder was laying the ground for Justice League and beyond, with a secret (so secret you don’t even see it!) cameo from none other than Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman.
