Warner Bros. takes the DC Extended Universe under the water with the exit of the future " Aquaman" starring Jason Momoa of "Game of Thrones"
Directed by James Wan, Momoa interprets Arthur Curry, a mid-man -human, half Atlantean, caught between two worlds. The son of Atlantean royalty and heir to the throne of the ocean, the allegiance of Aquaman is tested when his half-brother, Orm (Patrick Wilson), prepares to unite the seven kingdoms and to leading the war against surface inhabitants who threaten the oceans
Heard also plays the role of Mera, the daughter and future queen of the Xebel, an Atlantean tribe led by King Nereus and played by Dolph Lundgren. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will portray Black Manta, a ruthless mercenary treasure hunter and the greatest enemy of Aquaman.
Aquaman has the ability to control tides, communicate with other marine species, swim at supersonic speeds and possess superhuman strength. It seems almost unfair to the bad guys that he gets a trident and a scale armor to top it off.
The film, which also stars Willem Dafoe and Nicole Kidman, is playing in theaters on December 21st.
