A new piece of concept art from Justice League shows Jason Momoa’s Aquaman inspecting a Mother Box in Atlantis.
Justice League only included one major sequence set in Atlantis, showing Steppenwolf acquiring the Mother Box seen in the concept art and setting up Aquaman’s standalone feature with the introduction of Mera, played by Amber Heard. It’s unclear if were more scenes that didn’t make the final cut, but it’s very likely considering what we’ve heard about the movie’s troubled production so far.

Fans can expect to further explore Atlantis in Aquaman, which opens later this year. It was recently revealed that Warner Bros. held a test screening for the James Wan-directed film, which was met with positive reactions to its action and emotional core.
The film was directed by Zack Snyder, with post-production duties handled by Joss Whedon. It also stars stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds. Here’s the official synopsis:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is now available on Digital HD, with a home video release set for March 13, 2018.
B-List DC Comics Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movies
DC Comics are ripe of amazing characters with potential. If Marvel can successfully make an Iron Man movie, something that was considered a bad idea at the time due to the character’s unpopular status, then DC can do something similar with a different character. Batman and Superman are great, but they don’t deserve all the attention in this fascinating universe.
With so many DC-themed movies on the horizon over at Warner Brothers, it makes sense for producers to dig through back issues to search for interesting stories about characters who aren’t necessarily known by the full public to adapt. There are no such thing as bad characters — sometimes certain writers just aren’t able to bring out the character’s full potential in various stories. Even the best heroes and villains can have bad movies (I’m looking at you Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), so all these characters need is a strong, passionate filmmaker to come around and turn them into a hit.
