Warner Bros. reportedly held a screening for the upcoming Aquaman solo film recently, but the word has been mostly mum, as is typically the case with these early screenings. However, Batman-News posted to Twitter yesterday stating that they spoke with two audience members from the early screening, and their reactions are very encouraging indeed:
So far two different sources told me they loved #Aquaman! There’s tons of action but it’s a very emotional movie as well.

While being action-packed and emotional hardly means that the film is good, it is certainly a step in the right direction. Not to mention that if the film was terrible it is likely that would be one of the first words out of any audience member’s mouth – as has been the case when it comes to the rumoured early reactions to previous DCEU movies. So, here’s hoping!
