One year out from the release of James Wan’s “Aquaman” and Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first official photo from the film with Jason Momoa as the titular underwater hero seemingly walking around a submarine or boat shirtless.
Will Beall, Geoff Johns and Wan penned the script for the film in which we get his backstory including how his parents met and what happened to them, the little boy being raised and finding his powers, and him never being accepted on either side (by Atlanteans or humans).
Hardening up, he becomes reluctant to be king and uncertain what to do with these powers he has. The film also stars Amber Heard as his wife Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Ludi Lin as Murk, Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master, Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman as Atlanna and Michael Beach as Jesse Kane.
“Aquaman” opens in December next year.
