New concept art has been revealed for the upcoming DC solo film, Aquaman, featuring some fearsome members of Xebel’s army.
The days leading up until this year’s San Diego Comic-Con have given fans some very exciting information and photos regarding this year’s Aquaman film. Entertainment Weekly has now given DC fans more Aquaman goodness to salivate over, premiering the first look at the army of Xebel, featuring an undefined character seated on a sea dragon. Check out the image below.
Xebel is one of the seven underwater kingdoms of Atlantis and is ruled by Dolph Lundgren’s King Nereus. The portal to the kingdom rests in the Bermuda Triangle in the comic books. How prevalent of a role Xebel will play in Aquaman remains to be seen but director James Wan is certainly appearing to give fans as much of this giant underwater world as possible. The world looks so incredible that fans are already comparing it to Star Wars.
If you’re hoping to see Jason Mamoa’s Aquaman ride one of these sea dragons into battle, producer Peter Safran says he “wouldn’t be surprised if we saw Arthur [Jason Momoa] ride one at some point.”. Safran also revealed that the sea dragon presence in Aquaman is Wan’s attempt to prove wrong the fans that still make fun of Aquaman for talking to fish by making the ability “into something terrifying and impressive.”
Are you excited for the Aquaman trailer premiere this Saturday? Let us know in the comments below!
The film stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Patrick Wilson as Orm Marius/Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, and Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko.
Aquaman is currently slated to hit theaters on December 21, 2018.
