Aquaman
Aquaman-1While we may only be getting one adventure with the DC Extended Universe this year, it looks like it will be one worth waiting for! Jason Momoa is reprising the role of Arthur Curry a.k.a. Aquaman in his own solo film at the end of this year, directed by James Wan.
Despite that we have yet to see a trailer – don’t worry, the wait is almost over -, Warner Bros. executives are publicly gushing about the next DC installment from the studio. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Toby Emmerich (Warner Bros. chairman) and Aquaman producer Peter Safran spoke very positively about the film from what they have seen. Emmerich stressed heavily how this film takes the audience underwater in new ways than what has been done in cinema previously.
“James has done an incredible job with his team. The film is taking you to a different place and imagining the underwater world in a way you haven’t seen before.”
While he spoke about that, Safran was heavy on the movie’s big humor as well as levels of action.
“[Aquaman] got the great action you expect, it’s got a lot of great humor, it works on so many levels … it’s a testament to James’ unique vision. I think it’s an extraordinary step in DC Universe that sets it on the right path.”

Aquaman-2

Despite the fact that Aquaman will be the only DC film from Warner Bros. this year, 2019 will be featuring more installments. Shazam!, starring Zachary Levi in the leading role, will be arriving in theaters on April 5. Later in 2019, Gal Gadot will be back in the role of Diana Prince in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 2 as the sequel is scheduled for November 1.

It remains to be seen what will be the next DC installment after those pictures. Several films are currently in development stages such as Suicide Squad 2, Green Lantern Corps, Birds of Prey, The Flash, The Batman and many more.

James Wan’s Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry a.k.a. Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm a.k.a. Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Ludi Lin as Murk, Michael Beach as Jesse Kane, and Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin, opens in theaters on December 21, 2018.
