C.B. Cebulski, the editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, has praised DC’s Aquaman, congratulating those involved with the film.
A lot is made of the rivalry between Marvel and DC, with some fans choosing to support one brand instead of the other. Those involved behind the scenes don’t see it as a rivalry, however, as they are often heard congratulating each other on their successes.
This has happened once again with the release of Aquaman as C.B. Cebulski, the editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, has taken to Twitter to profess his love for the film:
“Just back from Aquaman. Really enjoyed it! Such a fun flick, the spectacle of it all made me feel like a kid in the theater. Can’t wait to take my nephew & niece. Big congrats to @geoffjohns @JimLee @creepypuppet on this superhero splash!”

While it is surely only a small sub-section of audiences that actively root for the failure of one side or the other, it’s nice to see employees of each brand able to praise what the other has been able to achieve.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman”, starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime — one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be … a king.”
Aquaman is directed by James Wan (The Conjuring) and stars Jason Momoa as the titular hero, reprising his role from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, along with Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Dr. Vulko, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry, Ludi Lin as Murk, Michael Beach as Jesse Kane, Djimon Hounsou as the Fisherman King, Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin, Otis Dhanji as a young Arthur Curry, Julie Andrews as Karathen and Graham McTavish as King Atlan.
