Our first look at Aquaman was of the Atlantean war machine

“Neither do I.” It then cuts to the Aquaman movie logo. Armed with his trusty trident (or quindent), he ran onto stage and played it like an electric guitar, to which Chris Hardwick said, “It’s a good thing you’re Aquaman, because everyone is now wet”.He presented a small teaser, which has not made its way online. One of them cast their reel out and he gets a bite. Suddenly the boat is being dragged across the surfaced of the ocean. Happily Wan sent Jason Momoa from Australia, where the movie is being filmed, to Comic-Con to show fans a little something from the film-but only the few thousand fans who made into the Warner Bros. panel. The biggest lift that Aquaman will have to make in its franchise will be adding the thriving, technologically vibrant undersea kingdom of Atlantis to the DC Comics cinematic universe. We are then transported underwater to see the fleet, including Atlantians riding sharks.For instance, we got confirmation that Green Lantern Corps and Batgirl are still in the works, while the studio also took the less-than-controversial stance of confirming that it’s working on Wonder Woman II. He has some kind of red sword in his hand and he looks over his shoulder to say, “Are you sure you really want to do this?” This reluctant ruler of Atlantis, caught between a surface world constantly ravaging the sea and Atlanteans looking to lash out in revolt, is committed to protecting the entire globe.The confirmation of Ocean Master as Aquaman’s main antagonist wasn’t explicit from the footage screened at SDCC, but later on in the panel, Momoa referred to the manta ray-shaped submarines shown attacking a fishing boat as belonging to Ocean Master’s army.If his excitement level right now is a reflection of his performance in Aquaman, fans will be in for a treat when the movie releases next December.And after the concept art was through, Wan had one more surprise: the lights in the hall dimmed for the first finished clip from Aquaman.
