Aquaman is just over a month away and that means the marketing for the film has begun to ramp up. Just recently a bunch of character posters was released for us to enjoy and of course I want to share them with you all. Here they are.
Okay, I’m trying to be positive about this movie. I really am. I loved the extended trailer. It looks like an awesome movie. But constantly I am struck with things about this film that throw up a red flag…like this poster. Is it just me or does it look awful? I honestly don’t think it was a great idea putting him in the iconic Aquaman suit because it doesn’t fit him very well. And why is his hair looking like that?
Gosh, DC Comics, why can’t you just get it right?

This is a trailer worth getting pumped about.
Aquaman released a teaser trailer a few months ago and while I did enjoy it to some degree it didn’t exactly entice me to watch it as much as I would’ve hoped. Well, yesterday an extended video for Aquaman came out and so, naturally, I had to check it out. Here it is.
Usually when a movie releases a five-minute! trailer that’s bad news but I have to say, for once, this was one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever seen a movie production do. Warner Bros. knew that people weren’t overwhelmingly excited to see this movie so they decided to show us what this film truly has to offer and I am beyond impressed.
This is honestly the first time I’ve watched one of the DCEU films with as much joy as I watched this trailer. It almost felt like I was watching one of Marvel’s movies as it displayed some fantastic action, lovable characters, and some legitimately good humor. Up to this point I didn’t know how I felt about Aquaman. He looked cool, seemed cool, but he wasn’t able to shine in Justice League. Well, in this movie, he’s clearly going to shine and I. Can’t. WAIT! To see this film!
Aquaman just may be the best movie in the DCEU so far with its incredible directorial vision, awesome looking action, and the sheer concept of Atlantis. I honestly couldn’t be more excited.
What do you think of this extended trailer? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
Aquaman is coming out this December and it looks like publicity for the film is starting to ramp up. On this week’s edition of Entertainment Weekly exclusive photos of Aquaman were released, giving us our first look at the iconic hero’s first standalone film. Check them out.
Water is Aquaman’s best friend.
It looks like Aquaman and Mera are on an adventure of sorts. Will they find love on this particular journey? *wriggling my eyebrows*

The DCEU (DC Extended Universe) has slowed down on the rate they are cranking out their movies but this December they’re bringing out a new installment in their franchise in Aquaman and that can be a good thing or a terrible thing. The only entry in the superhero franchise that was accepted with immense praise was Wonder Woman but the rest of the DCEU’s movies have been met with less-than-friendly recognition. Can Aquaman become only the second film in this franchise to change the negative narrative surrounding these superhero movies or will it lurk among the fishes like most of its other predecessors? And what changes will it need to become a film worthy of great reviews and tons of praise? That’s what I’m here to talk about and I hope you enjoy. 🙂
1. A Compelling Villain
While Marvel is one of the greatest franchises to ever be part of the cinematic world its biggest problem for nearly a decade was its villain conundrum. For the longest time the only compelling villain in the MCU was Loki and that was mainly because he wasn’t killed off in his first movie appearance. In the last couple of years the narrative around MCU villains has gradually begun to change and now with Thanos arriving in Infinity War the MCU villains have really become characters to fear and respect. This, however, wasn’t supposed to be a problem with the DCEU.
Throughout the comics these powerful superheroes in Wonder Woman, Superman, etc. have had to face adversaries that were just as impressively powerful in not only might but wit as well. This, however, hasn’t been translated into the movies very well. Man of Steel brought General Zod into the fold but instead of keeping the iconic Superman villain alive to pester Superman for years to come they killed him off, turning him into a worthless MCU-style villain who just so happened to be powerful enough to fight the Kryptonian hero.
Batman vs. Superman introduced Lex Luther and Doomsday to the DCEU, both of which didn’t make the movie any more compelling or epic. Wonder Woman had the Amazonian warrior face off against the Greek God, Ares, which sounds amazing but wasn’t as incredible a showdown as it could’ve been. And Justice League‘s villain, Steppenwolf, was a CGI disaster with a Thor: The Dark World level evil, world dominating plan that didn’t make any sense and that I honestly didn’t care about (because I knew the heroes were going to win anyway.)
If Aquaman is going to be a success it’s going to have to have an awesome villain that’s worth watching.
