A new Aquaman clip has surfaced online, featuring an intense sequence with the race known as The Trench.
The video in question is a little difficult to see as it was more then likely recorded on some kind of mobile device. The audio and visual quality isn’t the best but one can clearly see the Trench as Aquaman and Mera try and out swim a swarm of the all consuming race. This was proceeded by someone speaking of a power that would unite all the kingdoms of the ocean. The clip seems to imply that The Trench are guarding this power.
From the look of things, Aquaman and Mera are going to be facing quite a few challenges before they reach their final goal. You can see the full video below.

The Trench were originally introduced in the first story arc of the Aquaman New 52 reboot series. The arc in question was written by Geoff Johns with artwork primarily done by Ivan Reis. The original arc featured them as a race that broke free of an ancient prison and attempted to consume everything in their path. They were later used in the Throne of Atlantis crossover event where Aquaman used them to stop his brother from waging war on the surfaceworld . And from the look of things, our protagonists will be facing more then a few of these before the end credits roll.
