That hulk guy right now....
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Shittaakeem(m): 9:06pm On Jan 06|
What are u saying
I'm talking about major competition at the box office
Justice league floped but if it had the opportunity aquaman had it will make 1billion but it didn't.
It also applies to bvs and thor.
Ps never ever compare Thor raganarok to aquaman.
Besides marvel has always been good when it comes to competing at the box office unlike DC who had to move ww2 to 2020 because of star wars.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by philfearon(m): 9:13pm On Jan 06|
Shittaakeem:Do you think STAR WARS or ENDGAME will make as much money in the Box Office if it's released in same time as the AVATAR prequel or JURASSIC WORLD 3?
PS: Yes, never Compare THOR :RAGNAROK to Aquaman... RAGNAROK is a joke abi comedy movie!

Raalsalghul:superman and batman are 2 very popular characters that every fan or audience have a sense of entitlement to. They have their pre determined idea of how the characters are supp0sed to be and portrayed, and scriptwriters/directors have their's. The studio would want to manipulate that and use it to their advantage which means no creative c0ntrol for writers/directors cos the studio wants the films to do better. N0w, the studio has its goal; to make m0ney, the creatives; to make an entertaining piece, the audience; they d0n't want anything changed fr0m these characters, n0t even for the sake of art. So there u go. No batman film or supes film that would be released that will go without being divisive.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Shittaakeem(m): 9:20pm On Jan 06|
Yes They both will make as much
Atleast Thor had major competition at the box office and still made 800m+ unlike DC namor.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by TonySpike: 9:38pm On Jan 06|
Which movie was released at the same weekend with Thor Ragnorak?
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Shittaakeem(m): 9:47pm On Jan 06|
TonySpike:No major movie but check November 2017 movie slate
murder on orient express
Call me by your name(Gay movie)
look at that major movies to compete
still made 800m+
Now ask yourself will aquaman make 1b if it was released may 2018.
Even Deadpool 2 had major competition.

|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by philfearon(m): 10:18pm On Jan 06|
Justice league was the only real competition, but it flopped...
Aquaman was released in same time with the so called MARY POPPINS RETURNS;
SPIDERMAN : INTO THE SPIDERVERSE
That Aquaman buried them underwater does not make them no competition... All of them had $100m+ budget, just like Aquaman!!!
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Kingrapha(m): 10:30pm On Jan 06|
Oga use your brains....
Aquaman had more competition than Ragnarok (joke of a movie)
Freaking Mary Poppins returns during Christmas
Spider-man into the spiderverse
Note they were all better critically received than Aquaman....
Welcome to marwen
Aquaman is drowning them....
Wan billion by next weekend!
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by BlackManta(m): 10:39pm On Jan 06|
So this is the new excuse.
I have seen similar excuses from MCU trolls crawling all over Facebook and Reddit whenever Aquaman box office numbers is brought up.
But...but.. Aquaman had no competition yen yen yen..
Ask yourself how many December movies has made over $1b in Hollywood asides Avatar and Star Wars
Ask yourself would you have been able to predict Aquaman hitting $1b long before the movie was released.
You guys talk as if every December release is a certified billion dollar earner.
If Marvel get liver they should release a movie on December 2019, 2020 or 2021.
If someone told you 10 years ago that a movie featuring Batman and Superman wouldn't crack a billion but Aquaman released in December would do it.... Would you have believed that.
Stop downplaying Aquaman box office success.
There is no such thing as December favoured it or it had no competition.
All that excuses is pure trash.
Aquaman exceeded every box office expectations.
Don't forget that this is first DC movie coming after JL flopped and generated so much negative buzz.
8 months ago very few people gave a damn about Aquaman and now it's crushing box office and it's success is a fluke.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by TheKingIsHere: 10:40pm On Jan 06|
From this image, captain marvel might make it because it has no real competition right?
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by BlackManta(m): 11:00pm On Jan 06|
He forgot that Ragnarok had a headstart over other big movies in November 2017.
It had a 2 weeks head start over JL and a massive 3 weeks head start over Coco.
Mean while Aquaman, Mary Poppins and Bumblebee all released on the same day in USA.
Both Coco and JL released with the risk of jamming Star Wars Last Jedi in just 2 weeks.
But Ragnarok dodged Star Wars by releasing a month earlier.
Shitnakeem didn't remember that one.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by BlackManta(m): 11:29pm On Jan 06|
When will a Marvel film compete with Star Wars at the box office
Last time I checked Ragnarok dodged Star Wars by releasing a month earlier.
Star Wars 9 comes out next December.
Avatar 2 comes out in December 2020.
Marvel should release a movie featuring a B-list character to compete with these heavyweights since they ain't afraid of heavy guns blazing competition.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by MJBOLT(m): 11:38pm On Jan 06|
according to Facebook expert, this are 90% of marvel characters
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by MJBOLT(m): 11:40pm On Jan 06|
that clueless Facebook expert will think twice before biting off more than he can chew
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by badinfluence(m): 11:53pm On Jan 06|
Awon internet filmmakers, una no dey tire??
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Shittaakeem(m): 12:00am On Jan 07|
BlackManta:Didn't thor compete with justice League
or have u forgotten civil war competed with Alice through the looking glass and x men apocalypse.
Iron man 3 competed with fast and furious ,Star trek even man of steel could not stop Iron man 3 from making 1billion.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Shittaakeem(m): 12:06am On Jan 07|
BlackManta:Jumanji competed with star wars and it made 900+ December 2017 why did wonder woman ran from 2019 to 2020 at least marvel don't run.
ps May July November are always fix for marvel movies except few movies like black panther hulk and captain marvel.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Kingrapha(m): 12:38am On Jan 07|
Shittaakeem:Wonder woman was scheduled for November 1st and star Wars comes out by Christmas...
If anything it would be a competition between ww and fronzen 2 which also comes out in November....
Get your facts right..... Even wonder woman in 2017 had competition from a crowded summer.... Pirates of the Caribbean 5, Cars 3, despicable me 3, transformers 5 it still came out top and won June domestically...
Fact is Aqm had more competition than Ragnarok.
And your whining won't stop the #WanBillion
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Shittaakeem(m): 12:45am On Jan 07|
Wrong Dispicable me 3 came top with 1billion +
Wonder woman that could not defeat gotg2 and spiderman homecoming.
Aqm never had more competition than thor
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Kingrapha(m): 1:02am On Jan 07|
I wrote domestically, you tool...
Fact is wet Thor grossed higher in his first movie that OG Thor in his third....
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Shittaakeem(m): 1:05am On Jan 07|
That OG Thor defeated justice League suicide squad and wonder woman ohh man of steel.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Kingrapha(m): 1:25am On Jan 07|
Yeah his third... Wet Thor grossed more than 16 marvel movies
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Minemrys: 3:45am On Jan 07|
BlackManta:d0n't mind them. I knew there was no way marvel fans would atleast cheer Dc for its success with aquaman. I don't want to talk yet. Am just waiting for mid 2019.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Minemrys: 3:49am On Jan 07|
badinfluence:and here he comes. I like this guy's new strategy, unlike the others.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Minemrys: 3:53am On Jan 07|
Kingrapha:bros, save ur energy for later. Not now. Patience. [no be trolling? We sabi am]
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Raalsalghul: 7:30am On Jan 07|
Minemrys:Hmmm. I expected you to say this. Permit me to ask, what worked for Donner's Superman and Burton/Nolan's Batman. Their movies were financially and critically successful.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by Raalsalghul: 7:36am On Jan 07|
hulk616:Apply sense for once in ya God damn life. Shazam comes out 3 weeks before Endgame.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by TheKingIsHere: 7:48am On Jan 07|
I can see you are butt hurt
Just the way I told you guys that aquaman will hit $1bn and you clowns made a jest, guess what? It is happening now, that's why nobody should take you clowns seriously as you guys don't think or reason with logic. You are just fanboys nothing more.
|Re: DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE (FILM) by BlackManta(m): 7:56am On Jan 07|
Wonder Woman 2 was going to release on 1st November 2019 before WB shifted it to June 2020.
Star Wars 9 will release on 19th December 2019.
Wonder Woman would have had a massive one month and 18 days head start over Star Wars 9.
So tell me how did WW ran away from Star Wars when both movies were never going to release in the same month.
Plus both movies were a massive 6 weeks apart before WW shifted to 2020.
So tell me what you mean by WW running away from Star Wars
