DC Comics’ lord of the seas is getting his own solo feature in 2018’s Aquaman. Jason Momoa will reprise his superhero role from 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and 2017’s Justice League for the film, which now has an extended, 5-minute preview for fans to check out.
Directed by Insidious and Furious 7 filmmaker James Wan, Aquaman follows Arthur Curry (Momoa) as he is forced to reconcile his loyalties to the surface world with his role in the undersea kingdom of Atlantis, which has become increasingly hostile to the humans polluting the oceans. The film’s supporting cast includes Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren, and Nicole Kidman.
With Aquaman hitting theaters December 21, 2018, here’s everything we know about the movie so far.
A long look
Just a few months before Aquaman splashes into theaters, the studio released an extended preview of the film (see above) online featuring more than 5 minutes of footage.
The preview includes what appears to be several full scenes featuring Momoa and Heard as Arthur and Mera, respectively, along with new footage of the villains — including Abdul-Mateen as Black Manta — and other supporting characters.
The first trailer
Warner Bros. Pictures debuted the first trailer for Aquaman (see below) during the studio’s Comic-Con panel in July.
In the days leading up to the standing-room-only event, star Jason Momoa kept anticipation high with an Instagram video he posted Friday, a day before the event.
