With production still kept under wraps and still well over a year away from the King of Atlantis’s first ever solo film, fans have yet to get a real glimpse at any of the supporting characters for 2018’s Aquaman outside of the titular hero himself (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Heard).
However, in a photo that has surfaced on Twitter earlier today, a shirt from the production crew shows off not only some new artwork of Aquaman and Mera but also our very first look at the villainous Ocean Master (Patrick Wilson) and Queen Atlanna (Nicole Kidman).
Also worth noting in the photo are a slew of sea creatures, which appear to be the ocean-dwelling evil race, the Trench. You can check out the photo below.

5 Reasons Warner Bros. Needs To Fast-Track The ‘Man Of Steel’ Sequel
Superman is a pop culture icon. The character was introduced to the masses in 1938. Eventually after radio shows, serials and animated adaptations, Superman became a movie icon following the release 1978’s Superman: The Movie. The seminal superhero film, directed by Richard Donner and starring Christopher Reeve, was followed by three sequels and one spin-off. In 2006, Bryan Singer brought Superman back to the silver screen with Superman Returns. The movie was divisive so it was back to the drawing board for Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Eventually, Zack Snyder was brought on board for the next iteration of Superman: Man of Steel.
Man of Steel was released in 2013 to decent reviews. The movie was a financial hit, but instead of doing a direct sequel, Warner Bros. went with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. That movie has come and gone and Justice League is on the horizon. Last year, it was also announced that a sequel to Man of Steel was coming along. There has been no word on that movie other than a few rumors here and there. This may be due to the situation that Superman was left in at the end of Batman v Superman, which will be resolved in Justice League.
