Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the underwater epic Aquaman.
Jason Momoa and Director James Wan are changing the narrative of Aquaman with this standalone film. Wan spoke about his vision for the popular DC character.
“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.”
For Momoa it’s really simple, “My job is to make this guy cool”.
Check out the official synopsis for the movie.
“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 will be in theaters December 21.
