Aquaman director James Wan has revealed how he developed the Fisherman people for the film by using a combination of both practical FX and CGI.
Today, Entertainment Weekly unveiled the first look at the Fisherman King and his people. This gave fans a sneak peek into one of the seven kingdoms of the sea that were built after the fall of Atlantis. The Fisherman King is played by Djimon Hounsou, who is also set to play The Wizard in another DCEU film, Shazam! out next year.
A fan inquired to Wan regarding the development of the Fisherman people, doubting the use of any practical effects considering how much of the film will require CGI. To the fan’s surprise, Wan responded and revealed that the Fisherman people are actually comprised of practice FX on their top halves and CGI for their lower halves, which are set to be tail fins.

Of course it is. Practical makeup-fx on the top half of actors, sculpted by @FracturedFX. Digital work on bottom half and environment by ILM. Best of both worlds. Just like Arthur https://t.co/BmLWPBzO5f

9 Times Joker Fought The Justice League And Won
The Joker is more than just a thorn in Batman’s side. The Clown Prince of Crime has taken on various members of the Justice League and lived to laugh another day. His dastardly plots are dangerous for everyone, and sometime he wants to take on an opponent who doesn’t know him as well as Batman does. Out of the entire superhero community, Batman clearly knows Joker best, so it makes sense that sometimes he wants to stretch his creative muscles and try and take down other heroes.
The character may physically just be a human being, but he still poses a threat to god-like figures like Superman and Wonder Woman. He may hurt his hand if he directly punches the last son of Krypton, but that doesn’t mean he can’t hurt him just as easily as he can anyone else. No matter how confusing he may be, Joker’s an intelligent, ruthless villain who happily picks on anybody he wants.
