For decades, Aquaman has been the brunt of joke after joke. However, it looks like James Wan’s upcoming Aquaman film may change that.
Over the weekend, Wan, accompanied by the film’s cast, took to San Diego Comic-Con to talk about Aquaman. More importantly, they gave us the first trailer for the film. There are talking to fish jokes and plenty of action. The visuals are stunning and Jason Momoa does a lot of what he did in Justice League. Also, Amber Heard. Unfortunately, this origin story seems to be all over the place in terms of the feel of the movie, meaning it’s a perfect fit for the DCEU. I’m really hoping that it’s just the trailer and not the movie because I really want it to be amazing. That being said, I’m still looking forward to it hitting theaters.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
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.
In addition to Jason Momoa, the film also stars Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen, Patrick Wilson, and Nicole Kidman.
Aquaman hits theaters on December 21, 2018.
