Are you ready for another fun game of He Said, She Said? Last week, our contestant was the irreverent Deadpool 2, but this week, DC Films’ Aquaman will be stepping up to see if it can win the approval of fans worldwide!
If you’ll recall, last February, it was reported that the James Wan-directed superhero movie had an early test screening at the Warner Bros. studio lot. The reaction was supposedly very positive, with sources telling outlets that there was great action and a lot of emotion to it.
But of course, these types of stories usually don’t have one side to them. The other side of this comes from Forbes contributor and Superhero News co-host Mark Hughes. Here’s what the man said on Thursday’s episode of his YouTube show:
“We’ve talked about it before. The conversations about the Aquaman test screenings, some people heard positive things…I personally have heard some negative things. I think there are some issues to be resolved, and there are some things to be worked out with Aquaman.”
Hughes goes on to say that he has hope for the film, as he is a fan of everything James Wan has done up until this point, so it’s not completely down on it, but it’s a bit sad to hear, nonetheless. One thing to keep in mind is that while it’s easy to qualify test screenings as either positive or negative, news of individual impressions of the film is not necessarily indicative of anything positive or negative.
At the end of the day, almost no one agrees on anything, and even in a positive screening, it’s likely you’ll have a handful of people who weren’t as crazy about the movie as the rest. It all depends on who outlets or journalists use as sources.
But does this latest report concern you? Let us know your thoughts down below!
