The marketing of Aquaman is now taking full force ahead of San Diego Comic Con. WB has launched the new website for Aquaman which has put out some amazing details about the film. Aquaman is the only DC movie to come out this year as WB had been going under some reconfigurations when it comes to the DC Films Universe because of the failure that was Justice League.
Just a while ago, Entertainment Weekly gave us some exclusive first looks at the various characters in the film. Now we have the first official Poster of the movie right before the trailer comes out on 21st July at the Warner Bros. panel in Hall H. This new poster teases all kinds of sea creatures to show up along with the Atlanteans, so by the looks of it, James Wan had a huge opportunity to cash big upon this project, and he seems to have done exactly that.
The new Aquaman website has revealed the official Synopsis for the movie with each and every detail that you need to know before you before you watch the film. Here have a go at it:
“From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an acition-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.
The film also stars Amber Heard (“Justice League,” “Magic Mike XXL”) as Mera, a fierce warrior and Aquaman‘s ally throughout his journey; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (“Platoon,” “Spider-Man 2”) as Vulko, council to the Atlantean throne; Patrick Wilson (“The Conjuring” films, “Watchmen”) as Orm/Ocean Master, the present King of Atlantis; Dolph Lundgren (“The Expendables” films) as Nereus, King of the Atlantean tribe Xebel; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (upcoming “Baywatch,” “Netflix’s The Get Down”) as the vengeful Black Manta; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (“The Hours” “Lion”) as Arthrur’s mom, Atlanna; as well as Ludi Lin (“Power Rangers”) as Captain Murk, Atlantean Commando; and Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” “Green Lantern”) as Arthur’s dad, Tom Curry.
Wan directs from a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (“The Conjuring 2”) and Will Beall (“Gangstar Squad,” TV’s “Training Day”), story by Geoff Johns & James Wan and Will Beal, based on characters from DC, Aquaman created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisnger. the film is produced by Peter Safran and Rob Cowan, with Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Jon Berg, Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada serving as executive producers.
Wan’s team behind the scenes includes such frequent collaborators as Oscar-nominated director of photography Don Burgess (“The Conjuring 2,” “Forrest Gump”), his five-time editor Kirk Morri (“The Conjuring” films, “Furious 7,” the “Insidious” films), and production designer Bill Brzeski (“Furious 7”). They are joined by costume designer Kym Barrett (“The Matrix” trilogy, “The Amazing Spider-Man”) and composer Rupert Gregson-Williams (“Wonder Woman”).
Warner Bros. Pictures Presents a Safran Company Porduction, a James Wan Film, “Aquaman.” The film is set to hit theaters on December 21, 2018, in 3D and 2D and IMAX, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.”
Well, along with this, Jason Momoa also revealed the fact that this movie has been made as close to the comics as it could get. The plot and other details are totally inspired by the source material and Aquaman is even going to have his classic Orange and Green suit at some point of time in the film as according to Momoa,
“James [Wan] definitely wants to keep it just like the original.”
Aquaman hits the theatres on December 21 this year and the movie will be followed by Shazam! which comes out on April 5, 2019, and Wonder Woman 2 comes out on November 1, 2019. Along with the Aquaman trailer on July 21, the first Shazam! Trailer has also been rumored to get featured, so let’s keep our hopes high.
