Last summer there was a lot of doubt that Warner Bros. Pictures Wonder Woman could be a successful film, especially with the negative reception of films like Batman V. Superman Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. But in a surprise to most, it has been the DCEU’s (what’s left of it) most successful film. With Disney and Marvel dominating the big screen this year, it’s almost time for the release of Aquaman.

The classic DC Comics’ character that has often been ridiculed by most for being a hero that can “talk to fish”, is ready to make his feature film debut in the self-titled film Aquaman directed by James Wan starring Jason Momoa and Amber Heard. A few weeks ago Aquaman had it’s first screening at a press event for critics and reporters, but they were unable to talk about it on social media until the embargo was lifted today.

Based on the first wave of social media reactions today, it looks like we are in for a good time as it is of some critics opinion that this may be Warner Bros. best DC Comics film to date if not a close second to Wonder Woman. Via Entertainment Weekly we have compiled some of the critics reactions for you to check out for yourself below!
