If you thought Jason Momoa’s Aquaman couldn’t get any cooler, you were wrong.
After revealing the first-look at X-Men: Dark Pheonix and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald earlier this week, Entertainment Weekly has now revealed the first official image from James Wan’s solo Aquaman movie, which is the next instalment of the DC Extended Universe.
The image shows Jason Momoa’s Aquaman shirtless and somehow, the character looks even more badass than he did in Justice League.
Check out the image below:
EW also sat down with the film’s director James Wan, who stated that the film will have a very different look and tone compared to previous DC movies:
“It’s going to look very different, it will feel very different — aesthetically, tonally, story-wise — it’s my own take. It’s a much more a traditional action-adventure quest movie.”
Explaining what we can expect from Aquaman, Jason Momoa revealed that the film will explore Arthur’s childhood and his troubled road to the throne.
“Justice League was only a weekend in Arthur Curry’s life. This is a totally different beast. In Aquaman, you see when his parents met and what happened to hem. Then the little boy being raised and finding his powers and going through that and never being accepted on either side. And then becoming this man who puts up all these walls. You just slowly see this man harden up and be completely reluctant wanting to be king and not knowing what to do with these powers he has. I think James Wan just killed it.”
Aquaman stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Nicole Kidman, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. The film is the next instalment of the DC Extended Universe, and the first time Aquaman has appeared in his very own movie.
Aquaman will land in theatres on December 21, 2018!
