Aquaman fans got just a taste of the DC superhero in this year’s “Justice League”; however, the character was not fully formed. Director James Wan (Furious 7, The Conjuring) says that fans can expect many more differences to come in his solo film from Justice League.
Warner Bros. has dropped the first pic of Jason Momoa from the film, which you can see above.
Now, Momoa revealed that fans can expect to see a tale that spans details Curry’s difficult childhood as a half-human, half-Atlantean to eventually becoming king. Momoa spoke to EW about his character and what fans should expect from this outing:
“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.”
Wan had the option to either do Aquaman or The Flash. Naturally, the veteran horror director picked the project that would terrify anybody else.
“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,” Wan explained to EW. “Let’s take the character everybody makes fun of and do something really interesting with him.”
Now, if you’re wondering just where Arthur Curry is strutting in this picture, you might want to head back to the early days of the film’s shoot. Wan posted this Day 1 production photo on his Instagram this past May and it might just give us a clue:
