With Aquaman being the DC Extended Universe’s only film this year fans are on their toes trying get any peep they can into the aquatic world of Atlantis. San Diego Comic-Con did what it does best and gave fans a juicy look at how Amber Heard’s Mera and Patrick Wilson’s Orm will look on-screen.
On one hand, Patrick Wilson’s character looks very true to his comic book counterpart, but the helmet looks like one a kid could get for their Halloween costume (perhaps befitting a trend of budget cuts). Mera on the other hand looks just as regal as she did in Justice League, but perhaps this is due to preconceived notions having already seen the character on-screen. Take a look at the promotional image below.
What do you think of Mera’s and Ocean Master’s look for Aquaman? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section below!
Directed by James Wan and written by Will Beall, Aquaman 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, Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin, and Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko.
Aquaman is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on December 21, 2018.
10 Young Actors Who Could Replace Ben Affleck As Batman
After suiting up three times, rumors are suggesting that Ben Affleck will not play Batman in Matt Reeve’s upcoming solo film. Apparently, Reeve’s script focuses on a younger Batman instead of following a Caped Crusader who is already well-established into his crime-fighting career. Hopefully, whatever story Reeves has cooking up is worth the recast and will showcase this younger Batman kicking butt on a scale movie-goers have yet to see.
To replace Ben Affleck, DC is pivoting to a younger actor who could potentially be a part of the cinematic universe for years to come. Batman is likely the publisher’s most popular character, so they need to choose an actor who could be an imposing presence on their larger film library moving forward. Ben Affleck’s version of the character is certainly enjoyable, and the warehouse fight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is likely Batman’s coolest battle on the big screen, but DC needs a younger, more lively Batman if they want their films to match Marvel Studios.
