DC Comics and Warner Bros. have released a brand new extended trailer for Aquaman! This trailer for the latest entry in the DC Expanded Universe is more than five minutes long and features an expanded look into Arthur Curry’s background, his heritage, as both “a son of the land and a son of the seas,” and his quest to claim his rightful place on Atlantis’s throne, battling the likes of his half-brother Orm, and the villainous Black Manta. Aquaman swims into theaters this December.
Aquaman is an upcoming American superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name. It is intended to be the sixth installment in the DC Universe (DCU). The film is directed by James Wan, with a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and Will Beall, from a story by Wan, Beall, and Geoff Johns. It stars Jason Momoa as the title character, with Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Nicole Kidman in supporting roles. It is the third live-action theatrical film featuring the title character, following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Justice League (2017), and will be the first full-length feature film centered around the character. In Aquaman, Arthur Curry, the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, must step forward to lead his people and to be a hero to the world just as his brother, Orm seeks to unite the seven kingdoms against the surface world.
The film is set to be released in the United States on December 21, 2018.
