The flood gates have been thrown open on Aquaman marketing with the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. Jason Momoa features prominently on the covers and in some first look images. EW teased some of their content online, that you can read an excerpt from below.
“The water world my movie takes place in is so separate and so far apart from previous DC movies it’s like I’m making my own sci-fi fantasy film,” Wan says. “This is a whole new underwater world nobody has seen before in live action.”
There are Atlanteans riding great white sharks, giant octopi, seven different underwater kingdoms, trench-dwelling cannibals, and even sea dragons (Wan’s fearsome take on the oft-mocked image of Aquaman riding a seahorse in the Super Friends cartoons).
Yet the film’s biggest surprise might be Momoa, who gives a humor-filled performance that finally brings the actor’s actual larger-than-life personality to the big screen. “Rarely has a superhero character been married to the real-life actor as much as Aquaman and Jason Momoa,” executive producer Peter Safran declares. “He’s authentically from two worlds, he’s this real physical specimen, he’s got this humor which he’s never been allowed to play before — in every regard he is Aquaman.”
