DC and Warner execs praise AQUAMAN

There’s no trailer quite yet. But executives from both DC Comics and Warner Bros. have been praising the film for its fresh approach.

Speaking in a new Entertainment Weekly article Warner Bros. boss Toby Emmerich says:

“James has done an incredible job with his team, the film is taking you to a different place and imagining the underwater world in a way you haven’t seen before.”

Producer Peter Safran, meanwhile, adds that Aquaman has “got the great action you expect, it’s got a lot of great humor, it works on so many levels … it’s a testament to James’ unique vision. I think it’s an extraordinary step in DC Universe that sets it on the right path.”

Exiting CCO Geoff Johns also shared some words of praise for the work of James Wan and his team:

“The underwater stuff has never been executed like this before, the visual effects shots coming in are just beautiful. James can switch modes from horror to big bright colorful action to really emotional scenes. He’s so able to hit all these different genres.”

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.
