10 Reasons Behind The ‘Aquaman’ Hype

Aquaman
If I went back in time five or 10 years and told myself that Black Panther and Aquaman would be my most anticipated superhero movies of 2018, I would have said, “Ahhhh!” because time traveling is freaky. But I would also have been quite surprised about the movies, too. The former I knew only in passing and the latter by the frequent jokes made about him. We here at Heroic Hollywood previously talked about what got us most excited about Black Panther. But we haven’t yet talked about the positive developments behind-the-scenes of Aquaman that have turned the film into an unexpectedly-anticipated blockbuster.

Aquaman is the next DCEU ready for production, gearing up for filming to begin in April in Australia. Of course, the character played by Jason Momoa, a Hawaiian of mixed descent, has already debuted in video and photographs in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad respectively. The king of Atlantis gets his proper introduction in Justice League, coming this November. But its his solo feature, directed by James Wan, that has really grabbed my imagination. The superhero’s story intertwines many great comic book and genre tropes, from the Shakespearan family drama to civilizational clashes to the tragic origin stories. He’s is the first big-screen water superhero. As fascinating as space is, I can’t help but be as fascinated more by the mysterious blue depths.

Here are 10 reasons the growing hype behind Aquaman is real. Click Next to start!
