All those who said that Aquaman was a silly comic book character are probably eating their words right now. Zack Snyder and Jason Momoa’s vision for the character has transformed the fishy hero into something much more special. Taking it one step further, if the first reactions to the film are anything to go by, James Wan revolutionised the DCEU, and the comic book movie genre as a whole, by making the ultimate Aquaman film.
In the first-ever Aquaman film, Jason Momoa plays Author Curry / Aquaman – the son of Queen Atlanna who falls in love with lighthouse keeper, Tom Curry. The adventurous journey follows Arthur Curry as he learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. He finds himself caught between a surface world that ravages the sea and the underwater Atlanteans who are ready to revolt. The story also explores the history of Atlantis and presents an entire world that fans have never seen before on screen.
Speaking about the movie at San Diego Comic-Con in July, director James Wan said, “I want it to feel more like a quest, fantasy movie. I wanted people to see just the visuals of the different worlds and what they are getting themselves into, like you are seeing it for the first time.”
