The CGI frenzy that is Aquaman has arrived. Warner Bros. has released a new, extended Aquaman trailer online, offering a closer look at director James Wan‘s (Furious 7) spin on the titular comics character. Jason Momoa fills the title role following his debut in Justice League, and the story of Aquaman finds the character caught between two worlds as his half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson) wants to wage war on the land-dwelling humans. Wan directs from a script by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (The Conjuring 2) and Will Beall (Gangster Squad), story by Geoff Johns & James Wan and Will Beall.
Can this be the film that turns things around for the DCU on movie screens? The film also stars Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master, and Nicole Kidman as Atlanna. Aquaman opens in theaters on December 21st.
