New Aquaman Concept Art Reveals Alternate Trident Designs With Ancient Features

DC Films and Warner Bros.’ massive hit Aquaman is on its way to becoming the first DC Extended Universe film to reach the $1 billion mark. To date, the underwater superhero film has already grossed more than $945 million worldwide.

A couple of concept art for James Wan’s Aquaman has popped up online showcasing King Atlan’s iconic trident. King Atlan is the first ever king of Atlantis, and is known for his powerful golden trident that he used to control the seven seas. In the film, the half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Heard) goes on a quest to find the ancient trident to stop King Orm from raging a war against the surface world.

A person named Mikhail Villarreal took to Twitter to share Christian Scheurer’s Aquaman concept art featuring the trident. It shows King Atlan’s final resting place and some alternate trident designs. Mikhail also shared some concept art of the ancient Hall Of Armor and the Kingdom of Atlantis. You can check out all the concept art below.

Aquaman director James Wan has also recently shared a new video showcasing the hard work that went into producing the film’s VFX. The footage shows how some of the most iconic scenes in the film were created using VFX.  The 2 minutes 10-second long clip shows a couple of before and after scenes giving fans an idea of how a scene looks before adding VFX and how it finally looked in the film.

Unfortunately, despite the impressive and breathtaking visual effects, Aquaman was excluded from the Oscars nomination list for Best Visual Effects.

While replying to a comment made by Aquaman visual effects supervisor Kelvin McIlwain, Wan expressed his disappointment by calling the Oscars shortlist a “f**king disgrace“.

Kelvin, you and your department are the unsung heroes of this film. The fact that your VFX peers in the Academy aren’t recognizing or appreciating what we/you’ve all contributed to the film and cinema is a fucking disgrace,” Wan wrote.

Aquaman is currently running in theatres everywhere.
