After a whole 13 months without a new DC movie, Aquaman has finally arrived to end the drought. Though reviews haven’t exactly been glowing, the film is booming in the overseas box office, where it’s been released prior to its US debut on December 21st. In tone, it’s much closer to Wonder Woman than say, Suicide Squad or Man of Steel and aims to tell a fun, epic adventure story for as wide an audience as possible.
But, of course, there are still a ton of special easter eggs and references in the film for fans to pick up on. The story of Aquaman is pulled from a few different comics, particularly those from The New 52, but there are a few nods to the character’s long and varied history in there as well. Interestingly, James Wan put a lot of himself in the movie, too, and his legion of fans who’ve followed his career from Saw to the Fast & Furious films will love the winks to his past works.
So, on that note, here are 10 must-see easter eggs that we noticed in Aquaman. We’ve kept things mostly spoiler-free, but if you want to go into the movie knowing nothing at all, then feel free to bookmark this page and come back later once you’ve seen it.
