DC Comics hopes to bite a chunk out of the "superhero" market share.
Multimedia from DC Comic's next venture Aquaman, started to emerge less than a week ago, giving us a brand new perspective on James Wan's depiction of the superhero. Five days later, the first theatrical trailer has been released, and you'll soon know for yourself how much wizarding took place while on set.
The trailer gives us a linear understanding of the hero's birth story, and a semblance of the matchstick moment he discovered his powers. Filmmakers first shared the trailer during a showcase for the film this afternoon. For those who are unaware, the film adaptation will star Jason Momoa in his most important film role to date. Fans of Game of Thrones will recognize him as Khal Drogo, the strong-armed warlord married into the Targaryen clan in a power-sharing agreement.
“I want our film to be a little different, a bit more unique, so to speak,” said Wan while he spoke to his Comic Con audience. “So my movie in some ways plays more like a science fiction fantasy film than a traditional superhero movie.”
Aquaman is slated for the box office on Dec. 21. DC Comics strongly hopes the James Wan-directed film will reverse their run of bad luck. I do however suspect that Suicide Squad has its fair share of supporters.
