Variety reported DC fans in San Diego Comic-Con got the first scoop of ‘Aquaman.’
Jason Momoa and James Wan teased the fans with a first-look footage and insider deets. You can read the full details below:
The first-look footage, revealed at the studio’s packed panel at Hall H, begins with two fishermen on a small boat in the water. One man casts his rod into the water, and gets a bite. But the pull on his rod is strong, and drags the boat through the sea until the man lets go.
The camera then zooms out to reveal that the men are floating above an army of underwater ships. The shot dips below the surface to reveal an entire army, including schools of warriors riding sharks.
“That’s Ocean Master’s army,” Momoa said during the panel to clarify speculation that the army belonged to Black Manta. “Black Manta ain’t got nothing like that. That’s my brother. I’m gonna be fighting my brother.”
The superhero tentpole, which was shot in Australia, hits theaters on Dec. 21, 2018, after Aquaman makes his debut in “Justice League” on Nov. 17.
Wan and Momoa first teased fans with the film’s concept art at CinemaCon.
“I want the audience to experience Atlantis in the way that Aquaman experiences it as well,” Wan said at the exhibitor convention in March.
“Aquaman is an absolute bada–,” the filmmaker continued. “This is the kind of movie that could not have been made five years ago.”
