But it'll be interesting to see just how distinct Aquaman is, and if it signals a new direction for the DCEU in the vein of last year's hit Wonder Woman. It looks like he forced his way through the wall of the sub, and we imagine the pirates onboard can't breathe underwater like he can.
The Aquaman cast includes Jason Momoa (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League) as the titular King of Atlantis, with Amber Heard as his wife Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Ludi Lin as Murk, Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master, Academy Award victor Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, and Michael Beach as Jesse Kane. If you were concerned about the character not staying true to the comics, it looks like those fears can be put to rest.
Arthur Curry and Mera (Amber Heard) embark on a quest on the surface world. Wan also talked about how the plot will focus on Orm.
The new Aquaman content from Entertainment Weekly continues to roll out!
Nicole Kidman's Queen Atlanna also makes an appearance, holding a young Arthur Curry, while Arthur's father can be seen off to the left side, though we don't see his face.
Jason and Patrick meaning Jason Momoa's Aquaman and Patrick Wilson's King Orm, who is Aquaman's half brother and may or may not have different ideas about what it means to rule Atlantis. Check out the Aquaman photos now in the gallery below!
Aquaman is now scheduled to be released in theaters on December 21, 2018. I guess you can say he's something of an Iron Man of DC villains. Let us know which image is your favorite in the comments!
