DC may finally be giving Marvel a run for its money, at least in terms of advance ticket sales.

Just after a short time since its release, DC’s Aquaman has broken the record established previously by Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War and became Atom Tickets' highest-ever pre-seller in the first 24 hours. These ticket sales from Atom Tickets provides a special deal for Amazon Prime users that gives them early access to screenings of the movie.

DC superhero film is reported to outpace Marvel’s $2 billion-takings in the first hours available. Marvel's film Infinity War stands at a record global opening of $ 640 million, exceeding the previous peak of $542 million held by Universal’s Fate of the Furiousreports Deadline.

Besides, Aquaman is also pacing ahead Sony's Venom, which had earned more than $700 million globally and Mission: Impossible - Fallout (starring big Hollywood actor Tom Cruise), collecting around $ 60 million just in the US.

The time for DC film to come out particularly coincides with the period in which Warner Bros are confronted with difficult times and their superheroes films adapted from DC characters are surrounded by controversy. The studio is in the process of retooling the futures of comics series due to the disappointing critical acting of the due superheroes: Superman vs Batman: Suicide Squad and Justice League and vs Dawn of Justice, respectively. Reportedly, both Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill will unlikely to reprise their prominent roles. Both Aquaman is slated to hit the theatres in December, following by Shazam!  in 2019. While Wonder Woman 1984 will be pushed to 2020.

There were rumors making around the Internet that  Aquaman will be headed out early one week compared to US release. Warner Bros. has paid careful attention to marketing with three trailers and an extended preview.

The film is directed by James Wan and star Jason Momoa as Authur Curry and Amber Heard as Mers in the lead roles. The supporting cast also includes Willem Dafoe, Nicole Kidman, and Patrick Wilson.
