Images: Jason Momoa In The Upcoming Aquaman Film

EW has released a photo of Jason Momoa as Aquaman in the upcoming solo film. Momoa spoke about the film, saying that:

“Justice League was only a weekend in Arthur Curry’s life. This is a totally different beast. In Aquaman, you see when his parents met and what happened to hem. Then the little boy being raised and finding his powers and going through that and never being accepted on either side. And then becoming this man who puts up all these walls. You just slowly see this man harden up and be completely reluctant wanting to be king and not knowing what to do with these powers he has. I think James Wan just killed it.” 

James Wan talked about the challenges of making an Aquaman movie, saying:

 “Aquaman has been the joke of the comic book world, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought how cool that would be. Let’s take the character everybody makes fun of and do something really interesting with him.” 

It is being directed by James Wan, with a screenplay by Will Beall, and stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren, and Nicole Kidman. It is scheduled to be released on December 21, 2018.
