Jason Momoa’s Aquaman is ready for battle in two new images from the upcoming Warner Bros. film, which draws inspiration from the works of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas.
“Obviously I loved the movies of George Lucas and Spielberg,” director James Wan told Empire magazine, which debuts the new images. “This movie is my embrace of all the filmmakers I grew up loving; those sort of Spielberg-inspired wonderment movies from the ‘80s."
The first image depicts Momoa's armor-clad Arthur Curry, armed with his "quident," while the second shows him fighting his half-brother Orm, played by Patrick Wilson.
As Atlantis attempts to rally the seven kingdoms to its cause, Arthur deals with new threats, unlikely allies and new discoveries about his past that will add on to his responsibilities as a king, leader and hero. Aquaman has already earned positive early reactions from critics, who say the film is a fun, wild ride.
Hitting theaters on Dec. 21, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry and Dolph Lundgren as Nereus.
