We’re a month away from the theatrical release of Aquaman, but Warner Bros. seems to still be testing the waters with the comic book movie starring Jason Momoa and directed by James Wan.
At least one more test screening for Aquaman appears to have been held in California recently, with more reactions pouring in from the lucky audience members selected to come aboard. And the Aquaman early buzz seems to be much the same as before: mostly positive.
At the very least, Aquaman is looking to be a crowd-pleaser with some minor issues that don’t detract from the aquatic superhero adventure. The test screening for Aquaman, which seems to have shown audiences the final completed version after Wan and co. worked tirelessly on post-production, made a big splash with all who attended.

Geeks WorldWide Editor-in-Chief KC Walsh, who seems to have been on top of reactions pouring out from Aquaman test screenings since this summer, summarized the general consensus from the test screening best: “it’s really everything you want” in a DC superhero movie.

For those asking, audiences seem to really love #Aquaman last night, haven’t heard a single bad thing, beautiful, funny, adventurous, it’s really everything you want.

Aquaman has yet to screen for critics, but Warner Bros. seems to be building hype among the fan community with these frequent test screenings, which have been more successful than not. While it’s a little odd that Warner Bros. would be testing the film this late in the game, it does get that word-of-mouth hype for Aquaman going, which is good news for a blockbuster film tracking for a $40-$60 million opening.
Aquaman is directed by James Wan and stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen, Patrick Wilson, and Nicole Kidman. It hits theaters on December 14, 2018.
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.

James Wan explains that huge tidal wave in Aquaman trailer

Admittedly, “It’s the one with Aquaman and a huge wave” was not the most helpful way to try and describe a photo to James Wan.
“There are so many pictures of Aquaman and a huge wave!” the director rightly replied after we asked for some context about this new photo, below, from Warner Bros. from his upcoming D.C. action-adventure film:

Warner Bros. Pictures/© DC Comics




Fans have seen similar images in the film’s trailer, which shows a giant tidal wave crashing into the coastline.
So what’s going on here? Wan gave some clues.
“The context of that photo is basically the Atlantic coastline is being hit by tidal waves and it’s not actually an attack from Atlantis but a warning sign of what’s to come,” he says. “It’s basically a message from King Orm [Patrick Wilson] and he’s throwing our warships and waste back onto the land.”
As fans know, Aquaman (Jason Momoa) is facing off against his half-brother King Orm over leadership of Atlantis. Orm wants to declare war on the surface world for polluting the Seven Seas.
And if you think that tidbit reveals a major bit of plot, Wan assures it doesn’t, really. In fact, there’s a lot more you haven’t seen.
“The trailer and images don’t really do it justice,” Wan says. “The crazy part is there’s so much movie, what’s out there has barely scratched the surface.” (So to speak).
In the film’s extended trailer (which you can watch above), we also get a long look at a rooftop chase sequence where Wan gets to use some of his stylistic directing chops that he honed in Furious 7.
“That’s the crazy thing is that one long take shot that everybody seems excited about in the trailer, that’s only half the shot,” Wan says. “And it doesn’t have the context of how it comes to play. So hopefully in the actual movie it’s more enjoyable because you’ll have context.”

Aquaman can't get here soon enough, and while we can't see the movie just yet, we at least know how long the movie will run.


It was previously believed that James Wan's anticipated Aquaman movie would run 140 minutes, which translates to 2 hours and 20 minutes. That news came from a theater in Australia, and a new document from distributor Vertical Entertainment is making the rounds suggesting that was pretty close to the final number. If this document is real then the final running time will be slightly above the previous estimate, coming in at 143 minutes.
The document lists basic information about the film, including the studio, the format, and runtime, as well as director and cast information. It would be an odd thing to fake, but you can judge it for yourself in the post below from @kryptonscodex.


"if this is legit then Aquaman’s running time is 143 minutes."


It seems rather accurate when you consider the runtimes of other DC movies, which all hover around that 2 hours and 20-minute mark. As you can see from the list below, 2 hours and 20 minutes is the preferred time range.


  • Man of Steel: 2 hours and 23 minutes
  • Batman v Superman: 2 hours and 31 minutes
  • Suicide Squad: 2 hours and 3 minutes
  • Wonder Woman: 2 hours and 21 minutes
  • Justice League: 2 hours


The most well-received of the bunch are Man of Steel and Wonder Woman, and they both came in around 2 hours and 20 minutes in length. If early screenings of Aquaman are to be believed, it seems DC might have a third film to succeed that pattern in Aquaman.
Fans are certainly hopeful that turns out to be true, and if it does then it looks like Wan's choice to isolate Aquaman to a degree from Justice League was the right one.

"It was very important for me early on to be allowed to make my own film and to have my own voice be in there," Wan told ComicBook.com. "After Furious Seven and Conjuring 2, I didn't want to be a director for hire. After Furious Seven, that's kind of who I was to some degree, but after that, I don't want to be that guy again. So, it was very important for me to be able to bring my own stamp, my own visual aesthetic, create the characters. Even though Jason [Momoa] has somewhat been established Justice League, I wanted to bring his character into this, basically, fresh in a lot of ways. So it was important for me to obviously pay a respect to where he was left off in [Justice League], but then allow me the freedom to take him to where I want to take him at the end of the movie. My hero goes on this hero's journey to become someone very different than where he started. That was something that was very important for me. But the movie I want to make, that I was allowed that freedom to do that."

'Aquaman' Guide Book Reveals Arthur Curry's Age

  • 1


Fans still have to wait a few weeks to see Aquaman in all its glory, but one particular detail about the film has already come to light.


The tie-in book Aquaman: Arthur's Guide to Atlantis was recently released, which features a diary-like approach to Arthur Curry's (Jason Momoa) story. One page of the book, which you can check out below, showcases a sort of actual timeline of major events -- including a handwritten footnote about the year Arthur was born. As it turns out, he was born in 1986, which would make him 32 years old now.


This solves one unanswered question that some fans have had since Arthur's debut in Justice League, as it was never made entirely clear exactly how old Arthur is supposed to canonically be. It also adds a bit of context to the flashback scene that has already appeared in the film's trailers, which shows a young Arthur using his powers during a class trip to the aquarium.


Aquaman is expected to show Arthur in an entirely new light, as he comes to terms with his place among Atlantean royalty. But according to Momoa, the character is expected to be pretty darn relatable, even as he goes through this ocean-spanning origin story.




"He’s serious, but he’s just jaded." Momoa told reporters during a visit to Aquaman's set. "He’s just seen so much and he doesn’t really trust anyone. I think it’s all about building the trust and that’s the whole Justice League thing-just being the team. I think, I definitely want him to be...you can’t sit down and have a beer with Superman, you know what I mean? You can’t. There are things you can do with Batman that you can’t do with...I wanted Aquaman definitely to be that guy that, he’s blue collar."

"I mean the whole thing about him, I wanted him blue collar," Momoa continued. "He’s raised with his dad, worked on bikes, worked on old cars with his father and at a certain age he’s given this gift. He doesn’t know how to deal with it. His dad doesn’t want him in the water, ‘cause he doesn’t want him taken away. The only thing he does know is that his mother was killed. He wants nothing to do with these people. F****** hates ‘em. And, I wanted to see what kinds of jobs he did when he left his dad’s house, y’know, working on big oil rigs. He can go underneath and he saved people and he hasn’t saved people. And the side he can’t cope with is his human side. That’s what makes him great. That’s what’s gonna make him a great king is his humanity."

'Aquaman' Guide Book Reveals Why Arthur Curry Abandons Atlantis



Fans got to meet the DC Comics hero Aquaman during the events of the Justice League movie, which hinted that he doesn't have a great relationship with the people of Atlantis. Despite being the son of their former queen, it seems like the underwater kingdom hasn't embraced him.

Now we have an idea of why the hero abandoned his ties to Atlantis, thanks to the official Aquaman movie book Arthur's Guide to Atlantis, which is an in-canon collection made by Aquaman himself when he was 13 years old.

The letter, which lays a lot of blame at the feet of Willem Dafoe's Vulko, reads as follows:



"Fine. You know what? Vulko, you and your alien friends win. If Atlantis wants NOTHING to do with me, then I want NOTHING to do with Atlantis. Why can't everyone just leave me ALONE!!

"When I got home, I locked EVERYTHING away—my photos, my letters, my notes, everything that I didn't put in this book. I locked it all up in my old tackle box, and I put it in the cellar. I'm done trying to fit into a world that doesn't want me. A world that killed my mother. So I don't need this book anymore. I'M HIDING IT SOMEWHERE NO ONE WILL EVER FIND IT.

"And Vulko, if he's out there, I just want him to know one thing: GET LOST."

It looks like Vulko will play a major role in bringing Aquaman back to Atlantis to help Mera stop King Orm's campaign against the surface world.

Vulko's actor Willem Dafoe spoke about his role in the film, teasing some major effects-heavy scenes.

"He's an advisor to King Orm, and he's also a mentor to Aquaman,” Dafoe said to Total Film. “You could look at a monitor that was filming in a greenscreen room, with all these elements covered with green fabric and all these reference points, and then you could go to the monitor and see the completed set, but in a rendering that was laid over the live scene. So that was sometimes very helpful. So when you're on this big object that's moving around on the gimbal that's supposed to be a shark - you could actually go to the monitor and see the size of the shark you're on."

'Aquaman' Guide Book Reveals New Insight Into King Nereus' Kingdom



An entry in Arthur’s Guide to Atlantis has offered some insight into 13-year-old Aquaman's thoughts about King Nereus of Xebel.

The book is written as an in-universe artifact from the perspective of Arthur Curry as a teenager. His entry on Xebel notes that it is ruled by King Nereus, played by Dolph Lundgren.

“Vulko says the king has a family,” the entry reads. “Apparently he has a daughter my age named Mera. Kinda sorta jealous that she’s down there and I’m up here.”

“Down there” and “up here” presumably refers to the surface, Atlantis, and Xebel’s relative locations to each other. It seems young Arthur had an interest in Mera even before meeting here, likely coming from what seems like a lonely childhood for the Atlantean prince.

The entry also includes a photo of a Xebellian polearm. Take a look below.



In previous statements, Lundgren seemed pretty pleased with his royal role in Aquaman.

"It is good to be king. Basically, I try to keep the peace down there along with Amber Heard, who plays my daughter," said Lundgren. "She’s trying to convince me to join the right side. Then you have Nicole Kidman as Aquaman’s mother [Queen Atlanna]. We’re trying to avoid war between the surface dwells and the people of Atlantis."

King Nereus’ queen is also Aquaman’s mother, born to her and a lighthouse keeper named Thomas Curry. Atlanna’s royal responsibilities forced her to return to her underwater home, leaving her son behind with his father. You can read her letter to Arthur here.

Aquaman's royal lineage makes him a threat to his half-brother, Atlanna's other son and current ruler of Atlantis Orm, aka the Ocean Master, played by Patrick Wilson.

“He’s kind of an eco-warrior,” Wilson has said of the character, who wants to unite the seven tribes of Atlantis to wage war against the surface-dwellers. “He’s got a very clear gripe with the surface world, which has been polluting his oceans for centuries. And that’s something for me — I’m sure for you too — that’s very easy to understand. If somebody was just constantly polluting our air and ruining how we lived …”

'Aquaman': Read Queen Atlanna's Letter to Arthur After Abandoning Him


With marketing for Warner Brothers' Aquaman in full swing, images of a recently-released guide book have surfaced online, giving fans a sneak peek of the movie before it's released. In Aquaman: Arthur's Guide to Atlantis, a two-page spread gives us a look at the letter Queen Atlanna (Nicole Kidman) leaves for an infant Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) as she leaves him on land.

"To my dearest Arthur, I hope that one day you will understand why I needed to leave," the letter starts with. "There are things at work here that are beyond our control."





"When I came to the surfaced, I had nothing. It was only because of your father's kindness that I survived, and in that kindness, I found something beautiful."

You can read the full two-page letter below.

When ComicBook.com visited the set of Aquaman earlier this year, the production was filming an action film featuring Kidman being chased by invaders through a house. After filming, Aquaman director James Wan told ComicBook.com how important Kidman's Queen Atlanna was to the film.

"Nicole and I have been wanting to work together for a while now and so when this project came along it just felt like, 'Oh I've gotta give Nicole a shot,'" Wan said. "There's no one more perfect to play the queen of Atlantis but, Nicole Kidman, she literally was at the top of my list and luckily we were able to get her to come play with us and I think she's fantastic."

"She's such a great actress and the gravitas and the emotion she brings to the film is just so valuable. And, yes, I've always wanted to see Nicole in a kick ass role as well just like has been brought up."

Wan went on to explain how Atlanna's relationship with Arthur's father is a big part of the movie, influencing the latter's outlook towards Atlantis significantly.

"The love story between her and [Arthur's father] is the emotional backbone for the movie and how it informs Arthur's character and his journey and sort of his bitter outlook on the world of Atlantis," Wan said. "He blames them for something that happens to her and it shapes his point of view."

Early 'Aquaman' Review Compares Film to MMA in an Aquarium

DC's Aquaman movie is fighting a major uphill battle to make the DC Extended Universe film franchise relevant again - thankfully, as we head down the stretch to release dat there are some good signs that the film will please DC Comics and blockbuster movie fans, alike.

Last week we got a slew of Aquaman first reactions praising the film - but those reactions were from a fan screening event, and clearly come with a heavy note of bias. Now we're getting a first reaction from a full-fledged critic, and it, too, describes Aquaman as the type of DC superhero fun that fans have been calling for:
Just saw AQUAMAN, which is a whole lot of fun. Like an afternoon at an aquarium crossed with an MMA match. In a good way
— Tatiana Siegel (@TatianaSiegel27) November 13, 2018
Here's what THR's deputy film editor Tatiana Siegel wants you to know about Aquaman: "Just saw AQUAMAN, which is a whole lot of fun. Like an afternoon at an aquarium crossed with an MMA match. In a good way".
The specific line of the film being like "an afternoon at an aquarium crossed with an MMA match" has a lot of fans scratching their heads, trying to reconcile that description into some kind of comprehensive assessment of the film. That aside, fans are understandably feeling pretty good about this early critical reaction, which basically hits all the key words that DC fans want to hear at this juncture.
The word "fun" is a major trigger when it comes to DCEU movies, as Zack Snyder's Man of Steel and Batman v Superman were both heavily criticized for being dour and dark and lacking a true sense of superhero movie fantasy and enjoyment. Justice League was supposed to be the major heel turn where the DCEU entered a new era of more lighthearted superhero fantasy, but ultimately that goal was lost in the muddled mess that the film became when switching between Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon as directors. So far, only Wonder Woman has struck a chord with both hardcore DC fans and general audiences, and that film's ability to inspire the sense of both wonder and heroic inspiration expected of a DC superhero, is cited as a big reason why.



With every new Aquaman trailer we've seen growing evidence that the film is indeed a sprawlingly epic superhero adventure, which will deliver both the action and wonder fans want. While the majority of reviews have yet to come in, things are off to a much better start than most DCEU releases.

‘Aquaman’ Featurette Takes You Under the Sea and Beyond




Dive down under the (special-effects created) sea in a new Aquaman featurette. Here, director James Wan takes us through several of the fantastical underwater worlds the film is set in. The running theme here, from Wan and the cast, is that Aquaman is going to take audiences to places they’ve never been before. Big, bold and strange are the three elements the superhero film seems to be going for. Watch the Aqauman featurette below.

Aquaman Featurette

As a wise crab once said: “Under the sea. Under the sea. Darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter, take it from me. Up on the shore they work all day, out in the sun they slave away. While we devotin’, full time to floatin’, under the sea.” Those words come to life in Aquaman, a new action movie about a muscular fish-man, his bad-wigged girlfriend, and Nicole Kidman. James Wan is the filmmaker tasked with bringing Aquaman to life, and since he’s Australian, he pronounces the title “Ak-wa-man”, and it’s just the cutest thing.

This featurette is a fun behind-the-scenes look at the film, and it underscores how much work went into crafting the wet and wild worlds on display. While filming underwater would be practically impossible (unless you’re James Cameron), Wan and company took great care in creating their under sea vistas. But the waterlogged worlds aren’t the only fantastical elements that needed to be conjured up. All sorts of elaborate costumes, sets and creatures had to be built from scratch. I don’t know how Aquaman will turn out as a film, but I can tell that the movie is at least going for broke in terms of world building.


Aquaman has had a strange path to the big screen. For years, the character was seen as something of a joke – at least in the general public’s eye – mocked for his ability to “talk to fish.” Zack Snyder’s Justice League attempted to rehabilitate him into a hard-drinkin’, ass-kickin’ Aqua-bro, as played by Jason Momoa. It didn’t quite work, but now Momoa has a chance to lead his own film. Hopefully it’ll work out. In the film, “Aquaman finds himself caught between a surface world that ravages the sea and the underwater Atlanteans who are ready to revolt.”

'Aquaman': Up Close Looks at Orange and Green Costume and Black Manta Suit




Much to the excitement of lifelong DC fans around the world, Jason Momoa is actually going to don the classic, green and orange Aquaman suit at some point James Wan's upcoming solo film.

While we were all hoping for this to be the case, it wasn't confirmed until the movie's second trailer, which ended with one shot of Momoa in the suit, holding his iconic trident. Since then, aside from a couple of posters or toys here and there, we haven't really gotten another good look at the suit.


That is, until Thursday night, when Warner Bros. held the first press screening for Aquaman, and the actual costumes for the characters were on display. ComicBook.com attended the screening and we were able to snap some up close and personal photos of not only Aquaman's classic suit, but also the updated Black Manta suit that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will wear in the film.
Scroll through to check out the close-up photos of these awesome new outfits, and let us know what you think of them in the comments!

Aquaman Movie Gives Deleted Justice League Powers Back To Mera



Director James Wan will utilize one of Mera's powers in Aquaman that was deleted from the final cut of Justice League. Amber Heard made her debut as the future queen of Atlantis last year in Warner Bros.' big DC team-up, but her role wasn't very big. Like many other characters, her screen time was reduced during post-production, so we didn't get to see her ability to control water.

After Zack Snyder stepped away from Justice League, the movie underwent several changes. On their own, they may not seem too significant to how the movie turned out, but when viewed as a whole there are dozens of changes that were made from Snyder's original version. Some of these differences came down to WB completely removing scenes from the finished product. Jason Momoa's Arthur Curry was a victim of these cuts as his entire backstory was eliminated from Justice League. This included Atlantis set-up, and even Mera's involvement in fighting Steppenwolf during his attack on the underwater city.


Mera's role in Justice League is rather small, but she appears in the Mother Box sequence in Atlantis. She takes on Steppenwolf underwater, but the fight was originally much longer. Pre-visualization for a deleted scene from Justice League showed Mera using some different powers against the villain than the movie included. At one point in the extended version of the scene, Mera begins the process of dehydrating him - literally pulling the moisture out of Steppenwolf's body. This same water-bending talent can be seen in the trailer for Aquaman.



The extended trailer for Aquaman showed how Momoa's solo movie plans to harness these dehydration abilities. When Mera and Arthur finally find the ruins of an old Atlantean location, they find a device that is no longer operational. Thanks to a wisecrack from Arthur, Mera figures out that the Atlantean created machine must need water to power it. But, since they are in the middle of a desert, she uses this same technique that Justice League cut. She puts her hand close to Arthur's head and dehydrates him on a much smaller and gentler level. She's able to take beads of sweat from him to get enough water to power the machine.

Even though Mera didn't get to use this part of her powers in Justice League, it is interesting that they would've originally been introduced as a means of violence. Her attempting to rid Steppenwolf completely of water could've killed him if she was able to finish the act. This would've made for a nice contrast to Mera then doing the same move peacefully here, while also showing the incredible control she has on her abilities.

Aquaman started filming well before Justice League hit theaters, so it is unclear when Wan would've found out that the first use of these powers would be cut. Snyder helped Wan by laying the foundation for Atlantis and how the underwater world and characters would be portrayed moving forward. They appear to have been on the same page for the most part - with the air bubble being the biggest exception. Of course, this moment is just scratching the service when it comes to Mera's powers. With Heard's character playing a prominent role in Aquaman, there should be plenty of time for Wan to explore the various ways Mera can control and manipulate the water around her that Justice League didn't have time to highlight.

Aquaman Battles Orm In New Movie Images



Aquaman will arrive in theaters in a little less than a month, but new stills of Arthur Curry battling Orm have just arrived. Aquaman first appeared in More Fun Comics #73 in 1941, and was also one of the original six Justice League members. He made his cinematic debut in 2016 in a cameo during Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and returned a year later for Justice League.

From marketing materials and information that have been released about the film thus far, Aquaman looks to have two villains; King Orm and Black Manta. While Black Manta, played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, is often considered Aquaman's arch nemesis, King Orm will be the main villain in Aquaman. King Orm, played by Patrick Wilson, is Arthur's half-brother, who plans to wage war against the surface world, which leads to Aquaman discovering he is the heir to the throne in Atlantis. The trailers have briefly shown the battle between the half-brothers, but now fans can gaze upon two new stills from their underwater fight.



First released by Empire, the two stills show Aquaman in his battle armor as he battles King Orm for the throne. The first image shows Arthur storming into battle with his full battle armor and his five-pronged trident, while the second shows Orm in action as he kicks his half-brother in the chest. The two images can be seen below, and both appear to take place during the arena battle seen in the trailers.

So far, Warner Bros. has done a nice job of advertising their next superhero flick with a mass amount of marketing materials. Several trailers have been released, including a 5-minute long version, along with new posters that show off Aquaman's comic-accurate costume. Warner Bros. has also teamed up with Amazon to allow Amazon Prime members to see Aquaman five days earlier than everyone else.

While Warner Bros. has certainly had some trouble kicking off their superhero universe, Aquaman could continue to turn things around for the studio. Early reactions to Aquaman have remained mostly positive, praising the film for being a fun and visually stunning adventure. Previously it was estimated that Aquaman would mark a box office low for the DC movie franchise, but that could potentially turn around now that early reviews are in and more stills like the ones above make their way online. Aquaman has often been at the center of jokes, with many people considering him a lame superhero, but James Wan's upcoming film looks anything but lame.ad some trouble kicking off their superhero universe, Aquaman could continue to turn things around for the studio.

'Aquaman': New Ocean Master TV Spot Released



Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Video URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsiO_Jb4_Vk


Patrick Wilson will be bringing Arthur Curry's brother Orm to life in Aquaman, and a new TV spot and photo give us a closer look at the powerful villain.


Orm is the half-brother of Aquaman but also goes by the title Ocean Master, and in the new TV spot, Arthur explains that for the longest time he wanted to be like his older brother. Knowing how unhinged Orm turned out to be, that desire has gone away, and he'll have to face Orm head on for the safety of the surface world.


Orm is ready to fight for what he wants though, telling Arthur "You are not going to win this. A war is coming to the surface whether you like it or not." From the looks of things, Aquaman isn't just going to lie down and let him do it, and we can't wait to see the two battle on the big screen.
(Photo: WB)You can see the full footage above as well as a new photo of Orm in action.
As for why Orm is so hateful of the surface world, it isn't something that has happened overnight, and director James Wan breaks it down a bit.
"It's so rooted in the environment and that's what Orm hates," Wan said to Yahoo! "He hates how we treat one another, treat the planet with so little regard. And the idea here is that all the crap from the surface world literally rolls down to him and his people. And he's just sick of it."
"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 International Trailer

With just weeks to go until Aquaman hits theaters, a new Chinese trailer for the James Wan helmed DC movie has been released and it features some mind-blowing, and extremely spoilery, footage. Take a look!


Chinese trailers are always a good source of spoilers and that's definitely the case in this new look at Aquaman. As you can see below, we find out how exactly Arthur Curry communicates with fish, and witness more of the hero's battles with Ocean Master and Black Manta.

Perhaps the most revealing shot comes when we see Aquaman in chains as Orm taunts him. This scene presumably comes after they clash in Atlantis' underwater arena and it may add some weight to those fan theories that the villain somehow cheats to win before an all-out war begins and Arthur once again fights for the right to sit on the throne.

It's not like the ending is shown here or anything, so this preview is well worth checking out if you're still trying to get excited about the next DC Comics movie (and there are great shots of Aquaman in his comic accurate gold and green costume that we haven't seen before).

AQUAMAN International Poster Assembles The Heroes And Villains Of James Wan's DC Adventure

On the heels of that awesome international trailer, a new Chinese poster for James Wan's Aquaman has found its way online, and it features fresh looks at most of the main characters. Check it out...




It's now officially Aquaman month, and we have a few more bits of promotional material to keep the hype for James Wan's undersea DC adventure going in the buildup to its release.

First up, there's an awesome Chinese one-sheet to accompany the recent trailer, and it may be the best poster we've seen for the movie yet. The images of Arthur (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Heard) are from an older banner, but we do get new looks at Vulko (Willem Dafoe), Ocean Master (Patrick Wilson), Queen Atlanna (Nicole Kidman), Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II ), and some of their finned friends.

There's also a couple of new stills featuring Orm and King Nereus (Dolph Lungren) armored-up and ready for battle.




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.

“Whoa!” Jason Momoa’s deep, raspy voice exclaimed upon setting his eyes on the Madame Tussaud wax mannequin of himself at the Aquaman press conference in New York City. Suddenly, the 39-year-old actor was like a kid in a candy store, staring deeply at his incredibly accurate wax likeness with the kind of sparkle in his eyes reserved for children seeing a superhero for the first time. But he’s not the only one to have that exact reaction.
“My first experience wearing the suit, it was really beautiful and I’ve actually never told [director James Wan] this,” Momoa said. “I put it on, I didn’t have a mirror, and I come out of wardrobe and I get to see his face. He’s always extremely passionate and lets you know right away. But the absolute joy — he looked like a kid — he beamed, ‘I did it.’ He was super proud, and he didn’t have to say anything, I could see it on his face.”
For Momoa, director James Wan, and fellow cast members Amber Heard and Patrick Wilson, who joined them at the Aquaman press junket on Saturday, December 1 in New York City, Aquaman is about extending that childlike wonder of seeing a favorite superhero come to life to an entire movie. And no, it’s not just about wax mannequins — however eerily similar they are (“I can blame everything that goes wrong on it!” Momoa exclaimed). Momoa, Wan, Heard, and Wilson discussed the personal and mythic elements that went into Aquaman, and the long road to bringing it to the big screen.
Here are some of the splashiest things we learned about the making of Aquaman ahead of the film’s release on December 21, 2018.
Jason Momoa Drew From His Own Life to Play Aquaman

Having been born in Hawaii and raised in Iowa, Momoa knows something about being torn between two worlds. The half-Hawaiian, half-Caucasian actor may have been a bold casting choice when it was revealed that he was playing the normally blonde-haired, blue-eyed Aquaman in 2014, but the casting couldn’t have been more perfect:
“The cool thing is, is just being able to relate to someone who’s truly [of] two different cultures. And each of those cultures don’t know about the other one. People in Hawaii definitely don’t know anything about Iowa and Iowans definitely don’t know about Hawaii so that was something I could draw upon.”
The other thing that really helped me out was being raised by a single parent,” Momoa added. “I just had just me and my mother my whole life,” relating his situation growing up to Arthur Curry and being raised by a single dad (played by Temuera Morrison). Both Momoa and Morrison are of Polynesian descent, which adds another layer of cultural specificity to Momoa’s casting.
“Coming from the Polynesian islands there’s so many water gods we have, and so much folklore, and so much mythology around how the islands came about: Kanaloa, Tangaroa, and Maui,” Momoa noted, adding:
“[With Aquaman] there’s [a Poseidon-like figure] and I get to play that, and honestly be the first mixed-race superhero. In 2018, it’s like, “Really? Is there not one?” And that’s a huge honor. And to play it really close to who I am and all of his imperfections. I don’t have to be Superman, don’t judge me. I get to play it in a way where he’s split between those two worlds.”
Aquaman Had Some of the Hardest Stunts for Both Actors and Stunt Teams

Stories of large-scale productions for superhero movies are something we’re used to hearing, but Aquaman was on another level, the stars described. “Just how large the scale of this movie was, it required so many teams and participants and people,” Heard described. “Sometimes we would be in the lunch tent and see four or five doubles of yourself. I did work my ass off…but I’m thankful to the stunt team, I wouldn’t have been able to do it without them.”
But Wilson added that even for the stunt team, Aquaman was a challenging film. Which is saying something for a crew of professionals who work on superhero movies for a living.
“We had stunt guys, saying, ‘Wow, I’ve never been in four different types of departments in one day.’ And you know when your stunt team — that by the way does superhero movies for a living — you know when they’re saying that, that you’re in uncharted waters, forgive the pun.
“I think we were all like that,” Wilson added. “Jason’s done stunts his whole professional career and you know —
“Hardest to date,” Momoa interjected.
“Hardest to date, for everything,” Wilson continued. “And I’d even go a step further and say at least in stunts, you’re talking about a matter of seconds doing a specific action 30, 40 times. When you have to hang in different wires and harnesses and devices for minutes at a time just to talk and make it seem effortless, that weirdly took its toll even more so for me, because it was just a constant state of dangling.”
But for Heard, filming Aquaman had at least one advantage. “It was the most covered up I’ve ever been in a set,” she raved, referring to her body-covering bright green wetsuit. “He’s the one who’s topless all the time!” she pointed to Momoa. It’s true — dangling on wires while shirtless can’t be comfortable.
Most of the Underwater Scenes Were Shot “Dry for Wet”

You can’t have Aquaman without water — it’s literally in the title. But that presented a unique challenge for Wan, who had to deal with an element that most filmmakers would avoid. “You hear it all the time from filmmakers that make movies with water. It’s not the most pleasant thing, it’s uncomfortable and it really just slows down the filmmaking process,” Wan said. His solution: shooting everything “dry for wet,” which he explained:
“The irony is, any of the stuff that is actually fully submerged underwater, that was actually shot ‘dry for wet.’ That’s literally what it sounds like, where you use the process ‘dry for wet’ where you shoot, as the actors have said, in these rigs that simulate swimming, floating and all that. But we did play with water as well. I don’t think you can make an Aquaman movie and not have anyone get wet. And again the irony is, when we’re actually above the water, when we’re dry, that’s when I have to drench the actors non-stop. When they’re actually out of water, that’s when they’re dripping wet. But when they’re underwater the irony is people actually look dry and so that’s why we shot it without water.”
But that doesn’t mean that Aquaman didn’t have big, expensive sequences that proved a pain for both cast and crew. You’ve seen it, or maybe meme’d it. It’s the splashy submarine sequence. It’s a sequence that cost a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, Wan said:
“I would say that the biggest water set that we had in the film was the submarine sequence at the start of the film. That was a huge setpiece that we built a submarine over a water tank that we submerged again, and again, and again. Like we would play the scene, we would submerge it, and we would bring it out of the water tank. We would blow-dry it down, and we would do take 2. It was quite a laborious process, and it’s a bit of a pain.”
The Majority of the Film Was Done in Post

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a film…where so much is done in post,” Wilson said. Momoa hasn’t even seen the finished film yet, which Wilson said mostly existed in Wan’s head for the entirety of production. It took Wan and his editing team — which included five-time collaborator Kirk M. Morri with Kelvin McIlwain and Oscar winner Charles Gibson as overall visual effects supervisors — over a year to complete post-production.
Wilson said during filming, that most of what the actors got to see was limited to concept art:
“You see all this pre-vis and what looks like a little video game. And then you see the artwork. But really it’s all in that guy’s head over there, so really that’s what was amazing, is to see what he was doing for the past year.”
“You really see it for the first time,” Heard added. That’s why Momoa has waited to watch Aquaman for the first time:
“I’m waiting to see it with my kids. It’s the first time I’ll be able to watch things with my kids for the first time. And I’m going to be really emotional and affected, and to be able to hold their hands — a 10-year-old and an 11-year-old boy — it’s going to be a really cool moment.”

AQUAMAN Star Jason Momoa Reveals How Zack Snyder's JUSTICE LEAGUE Originally Tied Into The Movie

With Aquaman just weeks away from hitting theaters, Jason Momoa has shed some light on original plans for Arthur Curry in Zack Snyder's version of Justice League which would have tied into this adventure.


It's no secret that a lot of Aquaman related footage was cut from Justice League as Willem Dafoe's Vulko was completely cut and Mera received only a few seconds of screentime.
Now, Jason Momoa has shed some light on what was originally planned for Arthur Curry in the "Snyder Cut" and it sounds like the original plan was for the two movies to be really closely tied (Joss Whedon's reshoots and rewrites, however, made the ensemble feel like a standalone adventure).

"I think I’m coming straight from Justice League," the actor explains. "In Zack’s cut, we had it where I was with Vulko and Mera and I say that I have to go home and they say there’s this force coming that I need to help. I’m like, ‘I’m going home to see my dad,’ and so I get in the back of a pickup truck and pound a bottle of something and off he goes, the wanderer, you know what I mean?"

"And so that was kind of the end of Justice League where I was going and then you cut to me coming home and run into a submarine," he concludes.

That would have been a very cool exit for Arthur and may have created some mystery surrounding what comes next for him in Aquaman. On the other hand, though, it wasn't entirely necessary and with Warner Bros. execs pushing for a cut with a running time of less than two hours, it was probably an easy enough scene to lose.

Watch First 'Aquaman' Movie Clip


Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Video URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_jiTXzxxV8

Warner Bros. has released the first clip from Aquaman.
The clip shows Vulko trying to guide Athur Curry towards stopping Orm’s plan for war. Arthur isn’t sure how to get the people of Atlantis on his side. Vulko suggests finding a very particular trident.

You can watch the clip above.
Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, the half-human prince of Atlantis who finds himself caught between the surface world and the underwater realm when his brother, Orm, stokes the fires of war.

“He’s kind of an eco-warrior,” Patrick Wilson, who plays Orm, previously said of his character. “He’s got a very clear gripe with the surface world, which has been polluting his oceans for centuries. And that’s something for me — I’m sure for you too — that’s very easy to understand. If somebody was just constantly polluting our air and ruining how we lived.”
The film is directed by James Wan and follows Momoa's debut as Aquaman in 2017's Justice League, directed by Zack Snyder. Speaking to ComicBook.com, Wan discussed the importance of putting his own touch on Aquaman while also staying true to the foundation laid in Justice League.

"It was very important for me early on to be allowed to make my own film and to have my own voice be in there," Wan said. "After Furious 7 and Conjuring 2, I didn't want to be a director for hire. After Furious 7, that's kind of who I was to some degree, but after that, I don't want to be that guy again. So, it was very important for me to be able to bring my own stamp, my own visual aesthetic, create the characters. Even though Jason has somewhat been established Justice League, I wanted to bring his character into this, basically, fresh in a lot of ways.
"So it was important for me to obviously pay a respect to where he was left off in [Justice League], but then allow me the freedom to take him to where I want to take him at the end of the movie. My hero goes on this hero's journey to become someone very different than where he started. That was something that was very important for me. But the movie I want to make, that I was allowed that freedom to do that."

Jason Momoa Says He Will "Absolutely" Return As Aquaman





While it sounds like Superman (Henry Cavill) and Batman (Ben Affleck) might be more or less done with their time at DC Films, Jason Momoa is pretty bullish on returning as Aquaman following his solo movie, which hits theaters later this month.
In spite of long days, cold days, and a lot of time spent in a harness, ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis asked Momoa whether he plans on going through all of that pain again to bring the fans more Arthur Curry.


"It is absolutely no pain compared to what pain really is, so absolutely I'll be going through it again," Momoa said.
While there is no official confirmation that Aquaman will get a sequel, projections for a monster opening weekend likely mean that the film will get a sequel, especially since having the potential to open at $100 million or more without a Superman or Batman in sight is a pretty big deal for a DC film.

His story has been hinted at since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and like everyone, Aquaman had a bit of a different arc coming out of the original Justice League script.
In a recent interview with WSVN-TV during the press junket for Aquaman, Jason Momoa revealed exactly what ending his character got, in Zack Snyder's original version of Justice League. Check out what the actor had to say in response to a question about when Aquaman takes place in relation to Justice League:


"In Zack's cut, we had it where I was with Vulko and Mera and I say that I have to go home, and they say 'There's a force coming,' and that I need to help. And I'm like 'I'm going home to see my dad,' and so I get in the back of a pickup truck, pound a bottle of something, and off he goes, the wanderer, you know what I mean? So that was kind of like the end of 'Justice League' where I was going - and then we cut to me coming home and run into a submarine and bang oh! Then go see pops and I think he's just going to get rooted again; I think he's been gone for so long it's just him trying to kind of come back to his roots..."
There are some interesting conclusions to draw from what Momoa said. First, it seems pretty clear that Aquaman was positioned to be an immediate followup to Justice League, something that Snyder's cut of the film would've set up with a "button scene" lead-in. Instead, the theatrical cut of Justice League makes some vague allusions to the future's of its respective members, showing Aquaman leaping into the sea and speeding below the waves toward what we could only assume would be his destiny to reclaim the throne in Atlantis.
