Forget Aquaman: Let's baselessly speculate about what the rest of the Justice League has been doing all year

2018 has been a shockingly sparse year for DC superhero movie output; Warner Bros. has yet to unleash even a single DCEU entry since 2017's Justice League, and the next film on the companies’ schedules, Aquaman, won’t arrive in theaters until December. Which raises the question: What have all these superpowered…

Jason Momoa makes a splash in the first Aquaman trailer

After literal years of waiting—we first reported on Jason Momoa’s casting as the character in 2014, and the first footage from the movie was shown at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con—today Warner Bros. opened the floodgates and debuted the first trailer for Aquaman, director James Wan’s upcoming attempt to reform the…

The first Aquaman teaser poster has us wondering just how big Jason Momoa really is

We’re probably going to get the first trailer for director James Wan’s Aquaman movie later this week during Comic-Con, so to try and go fishing for a little bit of hype, Wan has shared the first teaser poster for the film on social media. It’s a pretty standard one-sheet, with Jason Momoa’s eponymous man wearing…

The superheroes of Justice League deserve better than another misbegotten blockbuster

A blockbuster with more studio notes than script (underlined: “Be more Marvel”), Justice League attempts to inject some levity and rock ’n’ roll into Zack Snyder’s dinosaurian version of the DC Comics-verse; in many cases, it ends up with the worst of multiple worlds. Gone are the artistic pretensions and doofy…

DC showed off its first Aquaman footage (and a bunch of new logos) at Comic-Con today

Warner Bros. opened the DC portion of its Comic-Con panel today with a hefty burst of visual information for fans, showing off the logos for what seemed to be every single one of its upcoming comic book adaptations. Some of these were old news—we’ve been fielding reports on, say, Suicide Squad II for a while now—but…

Appropriately named actor Michael Beach lands key role in Aquaman

Third Watch star Michael Beach has been cast as a character named Jesse Kane in Aquaman—at least that’s the official story Warner Bros. is telling, according to Deadline. Kane is reportedly a “high-seas hijacker” who has a “fateful interaction with Aquaman” in James Wan’s film. But, as Deadline points out, speculation…

A new artist ushers in a new age for Atlantis in this Aquaman #25 exclusive

DC Comics has spent a lot of time trying to prove that Aquaman isn’t a joke, but the best way to do that is by putting him in a great comic. Writer Dan Abnett’s run on Aquaman during Rebirth has been pretty bland from both a narrative and artistic perspective, but the arrival of new editor Andy Khouri and new artist…

Awesome, they released the Aquaman...oh, it’s just a logo

We’ve had a lot of fun cracking jokes about Aquaman, because frankly, it’s really easy. But that Justice League trailer made it seem like the DC films are going to be pretty self-aware when it comes to the character, and possess a good sense of humor about Jason Momoa’s long-haired beefcake of a guy who talks to fish.…

Aquaman writer swims over to The Creature From The Black Lagoon

Nailing down his rep as Hollywood’s go-to guy for the damp action genre, Aquaman screenwriter Will Beall is making his way over to Universal’s The Creature From The Black Lagoon. Beall—who also penned Gangster Squad and the TV version of Training Day, although there’s no fish parallels there, so whatevs—will write the…

Warner Bros. wants to squeeze in one more superhero movie this year

Two DCEU movies will be out this year—Wonder Woman and Justice League—but Warner Bros. suddenly fits itself with a little time on its hands. Aquaman’s release date has been bumped to Christmas 2018, and with The Batman under the guidance of a new director, the standalone Caped Crusader film is still very much in the…

First Aquaman footage shows Jason Momoa bobbing around Atlantis

Zack Snyder may not be directing Aquaman—that’s James Wan’s job—but he’s still pretty pumped about watching the superhero show off his impressive power of possessing gills while otherwise being a very tall, very gorgeous man. The Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice director and Aquaman producer even ignored his own…
