We are weeks away from taking the plunge with Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) and the Atlanteans of James Wan’s Aquaman. The DC superhero, last seen in Justice League, showed off an action-packed trailer to the Comic-Con crowd back in July, but Warner Bros. has saved one last look at the December blockbuster, and we have it for you now, below:
James Wan has established, in earlier conversations, that Aquaman will explore both the human side of Arthur, as well as the lure that’s bringing him back to the throne of Atlantis. And this new trailer certainly places its focus on those two aspects, with plenty of underwater action, and the split that’s driven between Aquaman’s two worlds.
This is a massive look at the final movie, clocking in at nearly 6 minutes of footage that covers the full sweep of James Wan’s movie. And it does an outstanding job of exploring the different realms that will be important to Aquaman’s journey… and not all of them are underwater (as you can see by the desert scenes that really do harken back to Raiders of the Lost Ark, as Wan has been teasing).
But the bulk of the footage does plunge audiences below the surface of the water, where Arthur Curry begins his movie as an outcast who has rejected his heritage, but slowly evolves into the warrior king.
