Aquaman is outpacing Venom in first day online ticket presales through Fandango, according to the online movie ticket retailer.
With advance tickets now on sale, Fandango reports that Aquaman has outsold both Venom and non-superhero blockbuster Mission Impossible: Fallout in terms of pre-sales in its first onsale day.
"Jason Momoa's Aquaman is quickly becoming one of the more popular big-screen superheroes, and moviegoers are hungry to devour another film set within the DC Cinematic Universe,” said Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis in a statement. “Not only does it appear to be the most ambitious DC Comics film to date from a visual effects perspective, but fans are anxious to see new female heroes played by Amber Heard and Nicole Kidman, as well as the first superhero film directed by the incredibly successful James Wan."
Fandango did not disclose the exact presale numbers for Aquaman so far.
Aquaman is due out in theaters December 21.
