The Final Aquaman Trailer is the Best yet

The final trailer for Aquaman is here. Warner Bros. has released our last extended look at James Wan’s ambitious take on the titular aquatic superhero. Part human, part Atlantean, and all beefcake (Jason Momoa, of course), Aquaman promises to be the biggest stand-alone DC film in terms of sheer scope. The final trailer hinges on Aquaman’s iconic trident, one that plays a crucial role in keeping the underwater city of Atlantis afloat (so to speak).

While the epic, five-minute long trailer released during New York Comic Con had more in it, this final trailer packs a really potent punch. It’s the most cohesive telling of the Aquaman story (as far as a trailer can actually tell the story) out of any of the trailers, and it really highlights just how much work went into world-building Atlantis and packing the film with a ton of underwater stunts and effects. It also shows just how much Wan’s film stands apart from previous DC installments, looking as different from Patty Jenkins’ glorious Wonder Woman as you’d expect.

Here’s the official synopsis for Aquaman:

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be…a king.

The film also stars Amber Heard (“Justice League,” “Magic Mike XXL”) as Mera, a fierce warrior and Aquaman’s ally throughout his journey; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (“Platoon,” “Spider-Man 2”) as Vulko, council to the Atlantean throne; Patrick Wilson (“The Conjuring” films, “Watchmen”) as Orm/Ocean Master, the present King of Atlantis; Dolph Lundgren (“The Expendables” films) as Nereus, King of the Atlantean tribe Xebel; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Netflix’s “The Get Down”) as the vengeful Black Manta; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (“The Hours,” “Lion”) as Arthur’s mom, Atlanna; as well as Ludi Lin (“Power Rangers”) as Captain Murk, Atlantean Commando; and Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” “Green Lantern”) as Arthur’s dad, Tom Curry.
