    If there were any rumors of a third villain I would've assumed it was Nereus or maybe The Trench, though Wan said the former isn't a villain so...

    I'm guessing Orm's antagonism comes from conflict over Arthur's claim to the throne and his Atlantean extremism, but the main threat is Manta :evil:.

    12/14: Yeah, I guess Nereus is a red herring who turns out to be an ally.

    12/24: Wilson comments on his experience filming.

    "Complicated and awesome." That's an Orm I can get behind :cool:.

    EDIT 12/28: New promotional image:

    Aquaman vs Black Manta? Or maybe the flashback to when Arthur killed Manta's dad?

    12/28: ^Yeah, I think the second. Might entail why he wouldn't join the JL at first. He accidentally killed the father with his powers.

    Wan teases classic Black Manta revenge story.

    1/1: Wan posted a close-up tease of something.

    2/1: Wan posted a photo of a looping session with Abdul-Mateen.

    2/11: At a licensing show, a figure of Momoa's Aquaman was spotted wearing the classic comic costume.

    I remember seeing that figure before but I recall it being written off as a custom sculpt fans did and probably not accurate to what would be the in the actual movie...so much for that then :p.

    I do wonder how far off we are from actual, official, costume shots of everybody. The most we have to go on are set pics and that one bit of art a while back.

    I never even thought about the age thing, though I guess this would work.

    I wonder if they're going to incorporate the idea that Mera was trained to kill Arthur before she met him :ack:?

    Lundgren seems to confirm the father-daughter news and hints Nereus is trying to keep the peace and Mera is trying to convince him to join the right side then said Atlanna (and Nereus?) are trying to avoid war between the surface world and Atlantis.

    I guess this confirms Atlana is still alive in the present day, and probably tempering Orm's more militant stance :ack:.

    I wonder if Nereus and Atlanna will try, or did, arrange a marriage between Arthur and Mera in order to make peace between Atlantis and Xebel?
