Turns out three villains may not be enough for Jason Momoa’s Aquaman in his upcoming solo film at Warner Bros. Pictures.
We already know that “Aquaman” will boast numerous antagonists including Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, and Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus. Today comes a new variation on an old rumor that there’s one more joining in on the action.
Superhero News claims that the film will also boast an army of sea creatures they describe as bipedal humanoids with arms, legs, fins, big heads, big eyes and very sharp teeth.
Though the creatures weren’t named by the sources, those features would match that of The Trench from the comics. Rather than full CG creations, the creatures are reportedly being done by actors wearing full-body suits and stilts, and the faces will be animatronic with some post-production CG-augmentation.
No specific plot details for the film have been revealed yet. Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Nicole Kidman and Temuera Morrison also star in the film which aims to open in 2018. The next DC film to hit cinemas is “Wonder Woman” next month with a new poster for it going online today.
