Aquaman movie will not just be a superhero from under the sea but on land as well. The character will defend the world not only from the villains under the sea but also on land.
Will Beall, Aquaman co-screenwriter, revealed that action scenes of the upcoming DC movie are not all happening in the ocean. He told Slash Film that some of the most fun action scenes in Aquaman movie will actually take place on land.
Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa will play the lead role as Aquaman/Arthur Curry. Earlier reports indicated that Black Manta will be Aquaman’s main villain. Black Manta is a normal human being. He has no super power yet has abilities that include enhanced strength and endurance because of his battle suit.
Although Aquaman movie has several action scenes on land, fans are particularly excited to see how will Curry speak underwear. Director James Wan offered some hints on how they will do that.
“I love the idea of underwater speaking, but with a real sort of sonic, aquatic quality to it. So there’s this sort of aquatic, almost sonar/whale thing. Even though it’s in a human language, there’s this slight sort of underlay to it, this ping to it, which I think would be interesting for us to design, from a sound design perspective,” he told IGN.
Before Momoa’s standalone movie, viewers will have a glimpse of Aquaman’s underwater world in Justice League movie. The DC version of Marvel’s Avengers will premiere on November 17, 2017.
Beall also revealed that Aquaman screenplay is not yet finished. He said he is still working the script alongside Wan and DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns. Beale also assured that there will be no changes in Aquaman’s plot pending the development of Justice League. Beall explained that everybody working on DC movies know the timeline of every superhero in the DCEU.
Meanwhile, Justice League director Zack Snyder has teased Momoa in his Aquaman’s armor. He shared on Twitter a behind-the-scenes image of the King of the Atlantis. The photo showed Momoa in his Atlantean’s armor on set location of JL while holding an electric guitar.
