‘Aquaman’ Producer Believes Film Will Set DC Universe “On the Right Path”

The next film in DC's slate of films will be Aquaman starring Jason Momoa. As far as Aquaman goes, we have gotten a feel for what the character is like thanks to the Justice League film but not much has been revealed about the upcoming film. It was rumored that the first trailer for the film was to be shown during a panel at Wonder Con earlier this year but Warner Bros. backed out for unknown reasons. Sources speculated that due to the poor box office for Justice League, WB were hesitant to release a trailer so soon after. It's unknown when we will see a trailer but we speculate that there may be a trailer coming soon and it's possible that it will be at this year's San Diego Comic-con, which is just around the corner in July. On the plus side, the Aquaman team finally revealed some details about the film when they spoke to EW.

During the interviews with the crew from the film, producer Peter Safran told EW what audiences can expect from the film.

“[the film has] got the great action you expect, it’s got a lot of great humor, it works on so many levels … it’s a testament to James’ [Wan] unique vision. I think it’s an extraordinary step in DC Universe that sets it on the right path.”

When it comes to the look of the film, Warner Bros. film chief Toby Emmerich and former DC Entertainment President Geoff Johns weighed in.

Toby Emmerich: “The film is taking you to a different place and imagining the underwater world in a way you haven’t seen before.”

Geoff Johns: “The underwater stuff has never been executed like this before. The visual effects shots coming in are just beautiful. James can switch modes from horror to big bright colorful action to really emotional scenes. He’s so able to hit all these different genres.”

Aquaman is directed by James Wan and will star Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Temuera Morrison, and Doplh Lundgren.

The film hits theaters Dec. 21.
