The film, which marks Aquaman’s first ever solo outing, has been described as “Star Wars underwater” (which is a pretty great concept) with Wan promising fans that they can expect a “swashbuckling action-adventure, sort of high seas adventure story.”
Starring Jason Momoa in the titular role, and Amber Heard as Mera, the rest of the cast includes: Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Murk, and Michael Beach as Jesse Kane.
Aquaman is expected on December 21st, 2018.
