Although we don’t know much about Warner Brothers’ “Aquaman” solo movie however executive producer and director James Wan is prepared to uncover the tone — or, rather, “the soul” — of the 2018 solo film.
“I kind of don’t want to give too much away but know this: The spirit that I’m going for is like a classic sort of swashbuckling action adventure, sort of high seas adventure story,” he told “Entertainment Tonight” media news channel at the Australians in Film Awards Gala. “It’s ultimately a quest story in the spirit of ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ meets ‘Romancing the Stone.’”
Aquaman movie might be one of those 1980s cinematic touchstones, which successfully blended high-stakes drama with humor, will undoubtedly please those fans who were critical of the dark tones of “Man of Steel” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and heartened by the lighter touches of the teasers for “Justice League” and “Wonder Woman.” It perhaps also signals that Wan’s Aquaman won’t necessarily be the grim sea king sometimes portrayed in DC Comics titles.”
Notwithstanding, the director’s brief remarks additionally bring up a noteworthy issue: What’s the way of Aquaman’s journey? Is it a continuation of the “Equity Alliance” story, including Motherboxes, or something totally random? One hypothesis has as of now surfaced, focusing on the Trident of Poseidon, obviously, the hunt may not be down a question at everything except rather a man.
Featuring Jason Momoa as Aquaman — who, considering the “Equity Group” set photographs and video, would appreciate the hell out of a high-oceans enterprise, the film additionally includes Willem Dafoe as Vulko and Amber Heard as Mera.
“Aquaman” opens July 27, 2018.
