Reports have actually started to emerge from the depths of the web that the upcoming DC follow up, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, is not looking excellent, with continuous test screenings supposedly going rather terribly.

ViewerAnon on 'Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom': "I’ll be honest, we’re half a dozen test screenings in and it’s not looking great. I’ve consistently heard over the last half year or so that it’s boring, not as good as the first, and potentially one of the worst DCEU movies." pic.twitter.com/qiKbaZrQgZ

“I’ll be honest, we’re half a dozen test screenings in and it’s not looking great,” the claim checks out. “I’ve consistently heard over the last half year or so that it’s boring, not as good as the first, and potentially one of the worst DCEU movies.”
Sadly, it does not stop there. Fellow scooper @bigscreenleaks has actually considering that reacted with their own input, stating that Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom test screenings have “not been good” and even that “something that almost never happened in test screenings happened with this movie.” Which might indicate walkouts, booing, or everybody in participation dropping off to sleep. It’s difficult to understand for sure.
I heard that something that almost never happened in test screenings happened with this movie. They’re really going to need to fix this one and fix it fast.

If that were not currently enough, press reporter and expert Jeff Sneider has actually used his own insight, exposing that not just is Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom “terrible” however that this is why Jason Momoa is all set to end up being Lobo in James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DCU reboot.
I hear it’s terrible and that’s why Momoa is gonna be Lobo going forward. But they can’t say that yet because then it would be a lame duck… and DC is hoping to wring another billion out of the box office. First one was awful too, so not a huge surprise. https://t.co/VlbUoqILDm
