It seems Warner Bros. executives and producers are very confident about director James Wan’s Aquaman, which is the studio’s only DC solo film lined up for release this year. Jason Momoa’s underwater DC superhero Arthur Curry aka Aquaman previously appeared in 2016’s Batman v Superman and 2017’s Justice League, before making its way to the character’s own standalone film.
During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the film’s producers and studio executives offered some new details about the film. They went on to praise James Wan’s directorial work on the film.
“James has done an incredible job with his team,” Warner Bros. President Toby Emmerich said. “The film is taking you to a different place and imagining the underwater world in a way you haven’t seen before.”
Aquaman producer Peter Safran said that the film has great action, great humor and it works on so many levels. He also seems to believe it will set the DC Universe on the right path.
“It’s a testament to James’ unique vision,” Safran added. “I think it’s an extraordinary step in DC Universe that sets it on the right path.”
Geoff Johns, former DC Entertainment president and Aquaman co-writer, told EW that the underwater sequence in the film has come out brilliantly.
“The underwater stuff has never been executed like this before,” Johns said. “The visual effects shots coming in are just beautiful. James can switch modes from horror to big bright colorful action to really emotional scenes. He’s so able to hit all these different genres.”
While nothing much about Aquaman’s plot and the storyline has been revealed yet, Some details shared by Jason Momoa revealed that the film will center on Arthur Curry’s origin story and will showcase his battle with his half-brother King Orm (Patrick Wilson), better known as Ocean Master, over the fate of Atlantis.
The first trailer for Aquaman was recently previewed at the CineEurope 2018 event in Barcelona, Spain. The trailer was exclusively showcased for the event attendees only. The trailer is expected to come out sometime around this week.
Fans are also looking forward to Warner Bros. Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con this July where more Aquaman content could be unveiled.
Aquaman is scheduled to hit theatres on December 21, 2018.
