7. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom
Did you forget about Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Even DC threw in the towel on this one and decided not to throw away more money than needed in promotion with no big premiere with the cast and little press at all from the stars.
As a movie, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom isn’t exactly a bad movie but it’l absolutely does not come close to capturing the same magic DC saw with the first movie. Sure, it’s got all the usual troupes you want and the effects are stunning but the movie just lacks a spark and is sadly a major miss.
As the final film in the DC Extended Universe, it’s actually a bit sad that that movie wasn’t able to send off the franchise with a win. However, that almost seems fitting for this franchise. The DCEU started with so much potential and quickly floundered with few hits amid its multi-film franchise.
With Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom now in theaters, we can close the book on the DCEU and look ahead to brighter days. Call us crazy, but we’re for once optimistic about the future of DC again now that James Gunn is steering the ship.
