First AQUAMAN Footage Has People Pretty Pumped

Although the Aquaman movie isn’t set to hit theaters until December, this week’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas treated attendees to a very, very early “work in progress”-style sizzle reel for the upcoming  James Wan film. And judging from their reactions, it seems that we all might have a lot to be excited about. Lucky fans who were there got to see the first ever footage of Aquman’s undersea kingdom of Atlantis, his nemeses Black Manta and Ocean Master, as well as his wife-to-be Mera, played by Amber Heard. Although Mera had a small part in Justice League, it looks like she will have a far more substantial role this time around, as expected.

Though last year’s Justice League didn’t fare well with audiences, many came away having been impressed by Jason Momoa’s take on King Arthur of Atlantis. His version on the classic DC Comics character was a kind of mix of a surfer bro-dude with writer Peter David’s version of the undersea hero from the ’90s, with a little bit of Geoff Johns’ New 52 incarnation tossed in there. Plus, Momoa stole almost all of the scenes that he was in. Because of this, we are genuinely excited for director James Wan’s upcoming solo movie for the Atlantean king, and are hoping this film follows in the footsteps of  Wonder Woman and becomes a delightful surprise for the fans.
