James Wan Teases Swashbuckling Action Adventure in ‘Aquaman’

Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment caught the world’s attention when it was announced that Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa would be starring in the title role of Aquaman. Add director James Wan (The Conjuring, Furious 7) to the mix and you’ve got something that not even the disappointing Batman V. Superman could stop from making truckloads of money. Even the most vocal of the Batman V. Superman haters ready to hand over their hard-earned cash to see the former Khal Drago as the first ever on-screen King of the Sea (no, Vinnie Chase doesn’t count).

Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment caught the world’s attention when it was announced that Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa would be starring in the title role of Aquaman. Add director James Wan (The Conjuring, Furious 7) to the mix and you’ve got something that not even the disappointing Batman V. Superman could stop from making truckloads of money. Even the most vocal of the Batman V. Superman haters are ready to hand over their hard-earned cash to see the former Khal Drago as the first ever on-screen King of the Sea (no, Vinnie Chase doesn’t count).

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Wan teased a swashbuckling action adventure quest story that is very much Raiders of the Lost Ark meets Romancing the Stone.

Wan also commented on what to expect from Aquaman and the recently revealed Amber Heard as Mera in the upcoming Justice League.

I think Amber and Jason Momoa, in their moments in Justice League, are going to give the rest of the world a flavor of what their own standalone movie could be. And that is just scratching the surface of what I plan to do.

It will be another year before we get to see Justice League and an even longer wait for Aquaman.

Justice League hits theaters November 17, 2017 and Aquaman drops the following year on July 27, 2018.

‘Justice League’: Amber Heard as Mera Revealed

Warner Brothers has revealed the first look at Amber Heard as Mera in Justice League.

In an exclusive with IGN, Warner Brothers has revealed the first look at Amber Heard as Mera in Justice League as well as some concept art of the character for the film.

The costume itself is impressive. Not all costumes translate well from the page to the screen but Warner Brothers has done a killer job on Mera. Justice League will introduce Heard in the role and will later be featured in the upcoming Aquaman directed by James Wan.

In the comics, Mera was the underwater Queen of the otherworldly Dimension Aqua. After being deposed from her throne she sought the help of Aquaman and would later marry him and give birth to his son Arthur Curry, Jr. A.K.A. Aquababy.

Justice League hits theaters November 17, 2017.
