Jason Momoa’s Aquaman was just along for the ride in Justice League. In the characters first stand-alone movie, fans will get more of the new badass version of Aquaman. So forget the memes and the jokes from the 60’s super friends cartoons.
Director James Wan’s (Furious 7) Aquaman is setting a new tone. Wan broke down his vision for the King of Atlantis.
“It’s going to look very different, it will feel very different, aesthetically, tonally, story-wise, it’s my own take. It’s a much more a traditional action-adventure quest movie…Aquaman has been the joke of the comic book world, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought how cool that would be. Let’s take the character everybody makes fun of and do something really interesting with him.”
Aquaman hits theaters on December 21st
