Having been a fan of Aquaman for some time and knowing he’s not the wimp that the mainstream perceives him to be, you could say that I’ve been waiting for what seems like an eternity for a movie featuring him to materialize. Fortunately, Zack Snyder cast the perfect badass for the role in Jason Momoa while assembling Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and now James Wan’s effort looks like everything I could’ve hoped for and more.
As you may recall, the general public was granted its first look at the film via the first full trailer that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con this past July. If you were to ask me, it appears every bit as epic and visually impressive as I’d imagined a flick based on this character could be – not to mention looking like an overall enjoyable movie, too.
Now, with just over two months to go until showtime, one could say that we’re due for a second helping. Granted, there was that international trailer floating around not long ago, but it stands to reason folks are champing at the bit for something blatantly labeled “theatrical trailer #2.”
Fortunately, it looks like tomorrow may gift us with just that, as Momoa himself shared the poster seen below on Instagram while teasing “something exciting” for Friday.
As you can see, the traditional orange costume is emerging from below the waterline, which I imagine pleases one Kevin Smith. In fact, now would be a good time to reflect on when “the Fat Man” touted Aquaman for its comic book accuracy:
“This s*** looks like the truest comic book movie ever made like it really hones close to the Aquaman universe I know and the look of the Aquaman universe I know.”
Aquaman arrives in theaters on December 21st. Before then, be sure to keep checking back for the aforementioned trailer.
