Warner Bros. reveals the release date of the Aquaman movie, finally. The standalone DC superhero film will come to theaters in 2018 with Jason Momoa as Aquaman.
We’ve already taken some peak at Jason Momoa as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice last March (2016), which also gave fans a little hint about the upcoming movie Aquaman.
Aquaman in theaters 2018
Last year, Warner Bros. has already earlier announced Aquaman’s plot, which centered on Aquaman being caught up between the troubles of Atlantis and the surface world. Aquaman is actually half- Atlantean and half-human in the comics, and he’s also the king of Atlantis. In his standalone movie, the marine superhero will be attending to issues on the surface world and also deal with a possible revolt in his own domain underwater.
The Aquaman movie is to be produced by Peter Safran and directed by James Wan (Furius 7, The Conjuring 2). It will be co-produced by Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, and Rob Cowan.
Aquaman in Justice League
Jason Momoa as Aquaman will appear again next year (2017) on a DC superhero movie “Justice League”, and he will be joined by Amber Heard as Mera, Aquaman’s lady-love interest. “Mera” will also be in Aquaman 2018.
Other DC superhero films set to be released in the near future are “Wonder Woman”, premiering next year 2017, “The Flash” (starring Ezra Miller), in theaters 2018, “Shazam” in 2019, and “Green Lantern” and “Cyborg” in 2020.
