This year’s slate of Hall H panels at San Diego Comic-con had been comparatively aloof, no lower than in contrast to prior years. We’ve considered new looks at what’s to near lend a hand from The Predator, Glass, Celebrity Run: Discovery, and The Strolling Tedious, however the worthy panel by a long way this year used to be the Warner Bros. panel, which correct showed off the most important peruse at James Wan’s Aquaman.
While Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, human title Arthur Curry, used to be a highlight of 2016’s Justice League, here is the most important time we’ve gotten to peruse him in movement on his earn. Highlights in the new trailer embody a hit upon at the Marine Surprise’s straw-haired aquatic family, at the side of Nicole Kidman as his mother Queen Atlanna and Patrick Wilson as his warmongering half of-brother Orm (AKA Ocean Grasp), as effectively as an myth foundation-chronicle scene whereby a younger Arthur Curry (Kaan Guldur) marshals the faithful arouse of an aquarium corpulent of sharks. One more highlight is Amber Heard’s Mera, who manages to neg Aquaman — “You fabricate your easiest thinking whereas you’re no longer thinking in any respect” — and soar out of a plane with out a parachute (“Redheads! You gotta love ‘em!”) in the trailer’s two-minute span.
Since Warner Bros. first presented the character lend a hand in Justice League, the studio has backtracked a little bit on its DC film franchise in the wake of disappointing critiques. It’s stepping away from its overarching expanded universe in prefer of movies in the vein of the overwhelmingly a hit Surprise Girl — accumulated space in the comparable world, but no longer as interconnected as Surprise’s Cinematic Universe. As such, Aquaman regularly is the most important film to test that approach out, but there’s extra on the horizon: Warner Bros. also launched a shock trailer for Shazam, as effectively as a clip of Surprise Girl 1984 at the panel (which gained’t pop up on-line). There’s also two Joker movies on the contrivance — one about Jared Leto’s character, and an foundation film from Todd Phillips starring Joaquin Phoenix hitting theaters in the near future. How effectively Aquaman is acquired by the box space of labor, critics, and fans will doubtless earn a immense impact on the route of the franchise.
Aquaman hits theaters on December 21st, 2018.
