Warner Bros. and DC Comics recently held a big panel at CinemaCon, offering fans a look at Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman and the first look at James Wan’s Aquaman. Since Aquaman hasn’t even started filming, there was no footage to be shown, but Jason Momoa and James Wan did reveal what sounds like some amazing concept art.
Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter we have an amazing description of the concept art, and I think we should all stop calling Aquaman stupid right about now.
The first described piece of concept art shows what appears to be Atlanteans riding underwater ships but then director James Wan stated: “It’s not until the ships get so close to you realize that’s not a spaceship. That’s a human riding a shark!”
The next piece of concept art showed the film’s villain, Black Manta who is described as being extremely comic book accurate. Artwork also showed Jason Momoa’s Aquaman tied underwater in what looked like a trial.
James Wan briefly teased what we’ll see in Aquaman saying, “You get to see a whole different world you’ve never seen before. Jason Momoa is larger than life and he is the perfect embodiment.” Jason Momoa will start filming Aquaman in the next few weeks, so we can only hope some of this concept art finds its way online soon.
