AQUAMAN footage impresses at CinemaCon

James Wan was on hand at CinemaCon last night to screen Aquaman footage for fans. Though the footage was unfinished we get a good idea of what is to be expected.

In what is being called an unfinished trailer we get a first-look at the King of Atlantis pulling a submarine out of the water, various deep-sea creatures also appear, and of course lots of underwater shots. The assembled audience were also treated to first glimpses of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta and Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master.

It’s unlikely this footage will be officially released online due to the nature of the unfinished visual effects. It is possible that leaks, much like yesterdays Venom trailer, could appear online later today.

Aquaman stars Jason Momoa in the title role of Arthur Curry/Aquaman. The film also stars Amber Heard as Mera; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe as Vulko; Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry; Dolph Lundgren as Nereus; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II  as Black Manta; with Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman as Atlanna.

The film is being produced by Peter Safran, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Rob Cowan, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
