"We’re thrilled audiences around the world have embraced ‘Aquaman’ in such a big, big way,” Ron Sanders, Warner Bros. president of Worldwide Distribution said. “Jason, the filmmakers and the team at DC have delivered a film that people love, and we are so appreciative of their support.”
Director of the DC Super Hero adventure film James Wan also thanked the star of the film Jason Momoa for all his hard work.
"Humbled by the way you’ve embraced ‘Aquaman’ and how it has resonated on a global scale," Wan said. "I’ll forever be indebted to Jason for turning Aquaman into one of the coolest, cinematic Super Heroes ever and becoming the gold standard for this character for generations to come.
