Press/Video: First ‘Aquaman’ Trailer Makes a Splash at Comic-Con

 

VARIETY – Warner Bros. is taking the DC Extended Universe underwater with the release of the upcoming “Aquaman,” starring “Game of Thrones” alum Jason Momoa.

 

Directed by James Wan, Momoa stars as Arthur Curry, a half-human, half-Atlantean man caught between two worlds. The son of Atlantean royalty and heir to the ocean throne, Aquaman’s allegiance is tested when his half-brother, Orm (Patrick Wilson), prepares to unite the seven kingdoms and wage war against the surface dwellers that threaten the oceans.

 

Amber Heard also stars as Mera, the daughter and future queen of the Xebel, an Atlantean tribe headed up by King Nereus, played by Dolph Lundgren. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will portray Black Manta, a ruthless mercenary treasure hunter and Aquaman’s greatest foe.

 

Aquaman has the ability to control the tides, communicate with other sea life, swim at supersonic speeds, and possess superhuman strength. It seems almost unfair to the bad guys that he gets a trident and scale armor to top it all off.

 

The film, which also stars Willem Dafoe and Nicole Kidman, swims into theaters on Dec. 21.

What we know so far is that Wonder Woman 1984‘s Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins are likely making a special appearance. Aquaman director James Wan already announced that he will drop a new trailer for the DC comic book adaptation, and Jason Mamoa and cast should be in tow. A sneak peek of Shazam! should slip through and it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary if WB shows off footage from The Lego Movie 2, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and Legendary’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
