Aquaman Has Already Been Test-Screened

Aquaman - DC Comics News

Aquaman isn’t set to be released for almost a year, but after the disappointing box office of Justice League, Warner Bros. aren’t taking any chances. Allowing for ample time to make any changes, Warner Bros. already held a test screening of the film.

Even though it was too early to have the visual effects or musical soundtrack complete, that didn’t prevent the viewer reactions from being very positive.

Key takeaways from the viewing have been:

  • Jason Momoa wears the iconic costume from the comic books
  • Black Manta’s costume is spot on, but he is actually the secondary villain
  • They don’t use the air bubble to speak like they did in Justice League
  • The evil deep-sea creatures known as The Trench appear

With Star Wars-level action and battles set under water, humor, a tone similar to Wonder Woman and even elements of horror, this film sounds like it has everything. From the sounds of it, this could be the next hit for DC Comics and Warner Bros… as long as the executives at WB don’t hack it up like they have all of the DC movies except Wonder Woman (which was the most successful one yet, go figure).

Aquaman will hit theaters December 21, 2018

Directed by: James Wan
Starring: Jason Momoa, Patrick Wilson, Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Dolph Lundgren, Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe

Hi, I'm Cameron Tevis and I've been a comic book, anime and film fan my entire life. While I like Marvel and anime my true love is DC Comics. My father, who was a fan himself, introduced me at a very young age to the amazing characters in DC (especially Hal Jordan Green Lantern). I think it's a fantastic time to be a comic book fan and I'm happy I get to write about the company that I love so much. Besides being a DC fan, I am a designer and I recently started a comic book series of my own called Event Cycle 6 published through Aporian Comics. I recently wrote and directed a short film "The Misadventures of Harley Quinn". And most importantly I am now a father to my beautiful daughter Arya Jade!
