The last trailer of the James Wan movie aims at a greater reach than people might expect.
On Monday morning, Warner Bros. launched its latest trailer for James Wan. Aquaman, along with the announcement that the tickets are for sale. Although fans received an extended five-minute trailer last month, the latest trailer is surprisingly full of new takes, even if the story exceeds what we're seeing is the same. Surprisingly, we have managed to get three different breakthroughs that show unique aspects of the film without creating the feeling that we have seen the best parts of the film. Warner Bros. clearly has a lot at stake in this movie, not only in terms of its DC properties but also to excel in what is shaping up to be a busy holiday season than usual in the absence of a Star Wars movie. However, the signs and some early reactions point to Aquaman Creating a big splash in December. This latest trailer, which shows the visual effects of the film, along with the undeniable admiration of Jason Momoa, promises a movie unlike any superhero movie we've seen before, not only because of its location, but because of its large cast of characters secondary very specific motivations, all working together to give Atlantis a true sense of space and history.
The last trailer gives us our first real introduction to Vulko by Willem Dafoe, which will be presented last year. League of Justice before his scenes were cut. Of course, this is not Dafoe's first foray into comic books, since he played Norman Osborn / Green Goblin in Sam Raimi. Spiderman (2002). But this time he'll be on the side of the good guys, well … maybe. Vulko has an interesting story in Aquaman's myths and has been one of the oldest supporting characters in the comic. In the initial appearances, Vulko is the main scientific advisor who offers his advice to Aquaman and Aqualad on many occasions. Think of him as Aquaman's Alfredo, although perhaps more often he is placed in a position of comic relief.
The recent comic book appearances, specifically in Geoff Johns run, of which Wan's film borrows, find Vulko as an exile who offers his advice to Arthur Curry under the pretext that the hero accepts his right to the throne and allows him to return to Atlantis. Vulko organizes a war between Atlantis and the surface world facing Orm and Arthur, and hiring Black Manta, in a game of calculated chess that ends with Aquaman who is forced to accept the mantle of a king within a divided kingdom. The trailer shows Vulko training Arthur from an early age and telling him the secrets of his legacy. Although he is certainly responsible for Arthur becoming the hero we met in League of JusticeYou can have more up your sleeve when it comes to getting Arthur to wear the crown.
Perhaps the biggest gift in the trailer for Aquaman fans for a long time is a complete look at Orm (Patrick Wilson), all disguised as Ocean Master. While Black Manta may be the most recognizable villain, specifically for those members of the audience whose primary knowledge of Aquaman comes from Best friends, Ocean Master has been a constant nemesis for Arthur Curry. As a half brother to Aquaman, who is determined to destroy the surface world, Orm is a pure Atlantean, who grants him, at least in his eyes, a right to the throne. In the trailer, we see him plotting with Mera's father, King Nereus (Dolph Lundgren), making sure that Aquaman will have plenty to distract him from his pursuit of the Trident. If Orm had the Trident of King Atlan in his hands, he could drown the world and turn the whole Earth into Atlantis, an act he attempted in Geoff John's career. Aquaman–League of Justice crossing Throne of atlantis (2012), which is an essential comic reading for any interested spectator. Given the prevalence of the character in Aquaman In comics, it would not be at all surprising to see Ocean Master set to return in future films, especially since the ongoing political struggle between the two men has led to some of Aquaman's most memorable stories.
Although Aquaman may be the type that the spectators come to see, make no mistake that Mera (Amber Heard) is the person everyone will talk about when they leave the theater. The film is preparing Mera to be the co-director of Aquaman, as she is in modern comics. Although his appearances in Aquaman The comics have faded for a while, become more prominent than ever, and a recent story has seen Aquaman give her the throne of Atlantis as she explores her connection to a mysterious and universal life energy. Mera can be a great diplomat, but she is not a person who retires from a fight. While the previous trailers showed some of the most labor-intensive applications of Mera's hydroelectric powers, here we see that they are used offensively. His ability to control and manipulate hard water constructions is one of the coolest power sets in comics and will surely be a visual highlight of the movie.
There are many moving parts in Aquaman, and while the film is a story of origin, it also goes beyond that and in what appears to be a full-scale war, complete with underwater kaiju. While there may be some doubts about whether Wan can balance all these characters and plot, his history of creating magical films speaks for itself. Aquaman seems to be in a world as interesting as everything we've seen in Star Wars or The Lord of the rings, and if the movie can create a big enough wave at the box office, this could be just the beginning of our trips under the waves.
Aquaman will be released on December 21.
