‘Aquaman’: James Wan Explains The Giant Tidal Wave Seen In The Trailer

Aquaman Jason Momoa DC Comics James WanDuring an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Aquaman director James Wan offered insight into the giant tidal wave seen in trailers for the DC film.

Among the many stunning moments in the Aquaman trailers is a shot of a giant tidal wave crashing into the shore, which left many fans wondering who or what was behind the massive wave. Now, director James Wan has explained that the wave is part of King Orm’s efforts to warn the surface world of his future plans:

“The context of that photo is basically the Atlantic coastline is being hit by tidal waves and it’s not actually an attack from Atlantis but a warning sign of what’s to come. It’s basically a message from King Orm [Patrick Wilson] and he’s throwing our warships and waste back onto the land.”

While the film will partly center on the conflict between Arthur Curry and his half-brother Orm, James Wan explained that there is still a lot that has not been revealed:

“The trailer and images don’t really do it justice. The crazy part is there’s so much movie, what’s out there has barely scratched the surface.”
