    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:

    [​IMG]

    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?

    2/22: Early test screening yields positive reviews comparable to Wonder Woman. Wilson praised as a great villain and Heard is very much a co-lead. And no air bubbles during talking underwater.

    Some spoilers, take with a grain of salt
    Momoa wears the comic book Aquaman costume in the movie.

    Black Manta is a secondary villain. He looks just like he does in the comics and has the same origin as well.

    The Trench is in the movie.

    Aquaman can talk to fish, and he does in the movie

    3/5: Promo posters spotted in Brazil.

    I was wondering if he'd pop up. I guess he'll be part of Arthur's origin story :).

    If I was making Aquaman I’d make it a little like temple of doom. What I mean is that Indiana Jones movie was a little darker ( Wan can hopefully do some scary stuff with under the sea creatures, making the water a dangerous place) .
    I’d make the trident his mcguffin, but to appeal to the masses I’d give him a choice of getting the trident and saving a bunch of kids, and he chooses the kids. ( He can end up getting the trident Lester/ after anyways)
    I’d be ripping the instrumental “ Salvation” from Two Steps From Hell as the Aquaman theme.

    I'm guessing the figure is referring to a chase sequence that has Vulko bloody and bruised :ack:.

    EDIT 04/24: WB showed footage at at CinemaCon.
