Amber Heard’s Mera from the forthcoming sub-aqua superhero movie ‘Aquaman’ has been revealed. Director James Wan dropped a snap of Heard, busting her shimmery green get-up, on Twitter, to some considerable fanfare. “Lady MERA swept in from the sea.
Chinese actor Ludi Lin, who was recently seen playing the Black Ranger in Liongate’s “Power Rangers” reboot, has landed the role of Murk in Warner Bros.’ DC superhero film “Aquaman.”
EXCLUSIVE : Chinese actor Ludi Lin, who recently starred as the Black Ranger in Liongate’s Power Rangers reboot, has landed the role of Murk in Warner Bros’ James Wan-directed DC superhero film Aquaman . Jason Momoa is starring in the film, which WB recently pushed back from its original release date in October to December 21, 2018. In the comics, Murk is the leader of the front-line army of Atlantis known as the Men-of-War and Aquaman’s trusted ally. Amber Heard, Patrick…
As well as giving us our first proper look at the team in action (including a curiously Iron Man-esque Cyborg, played by Ray Fisher), this trailer also gives us our first brief glimpses of some other new characters, including Amber Heard as Mera, and JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. There’s also a quick glimpse of Amy Adams as Lois Lane – although, as necessitated by the ending of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ one rather notable absentee is Henry Cavill as Superman.
Thankfully, there’s already a tease of what’s to come, with Aquaman getting his own mini teaser. It’s cool, it’s impressive and it’s apparently the first of five teasers to come before the full trailer is revealed on Saturday.
It’s little secret that the DC Extended Universe, the Warner Bros-owned comic company’s attempt at a rival to the mighty Marvel Cinematic Universe, is struggling. Whilst its three existing movies – 2013’s ‘Man of Steel,’ and 2016’s ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘Suicide Squad’ – all performed well at the box office, none of them have won over audiences or critics the way Marvel have. This means that, at present, the only DC movie lined up for release in 2018 is ‘Aquaman.’ However, it has emerged that the studio are contemplating filling the gap left by ‘The Batman’ by accelerating the development process on one of their planned films.
Zack Snyder has revealed a new clip from ‘Justice League’. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very small clip from what’s likely going to be an action-packed almost-debut for the character in the upcoming ‘Justice League’ movie.
Yahoo Movies has the exclusive first look at DC Collectibles’ upcoming line of premium, screen-accurate 12-inch statues based on the Justice League lineup. The meticulously detailed poly-resin sculpts were designed in coordination with Warner Bros. and present our best look yet at the costumed characters who make up DC’s premier hero team: Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s Flash, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. Each piece, mounted on a Justice League stand, will retail for $150, be limited to a run of 5,000 copies and will be available timed to the film’s Nov. 17 opening.
Director James Wan shared the smiling snapshot of the cast, calling them the 'new Breakfast Club.'
During an interview with The Guardian, the 61-year-old actor revealed that his upcoming role in ‘Justice League’ is just the beginning… and will be a lot bigger in Aquaman’s solo movie. “Well, Justice League is very particular because it’s an ensemble movie and my character is being introduced here in order to be a principal role in Aquaman,” he said. A long-time recurring character in the ‘Aquaman’ comic books, it looks as though his role is likely just a cameo in ‘Justice League’.
It seems that Jason Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ solo movie is shaping up to be something quite different from the (admittedly few) existing DC Extended Universe movies. Since the biggest complaints of the DCEU’s launch pad films ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ (and to a lesser degree ‘Suicide Squad’) is that they were far too downbeat, it seems that all at Warner Bros/DC have been eager to push a more light-hearted, optimistic outlook in their future films.
Production has wrapped on upcoming superhero epic ‘Justice League,’ and from the look of things Aquaman actor Jason Momoa celebrated the wrap with many libations. A quick look at Momoa’s Instagram reveals no shortage of pictures of the musclebound star posing merrily with his director Zack Snyder, co-star Ben Affleck and members of the crew, all holding aloft bottles of Guinness.
IGN were able to get their hands on several images of how Mera’s costume design evolved, which includes a concept picture and production unit still of Heard in the costume taken by director Zack Snyder. Once that was given the thumbs up and gained the approval of the powers that be over at Warner Bros and from ‘Justice League’s’ creative team, Michael Wilkinson and his posse drew concept art of Amber Heard as Mera in the outfit.
Jason Momoa posted this gym selfie to Instagram, along with a message to the ‘Justice League’ cast and crew. Justice League has wrapped filming, and Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman, commemorated the event in true Jason Momoa fashion, with a shirtless Instagram pic. The actor, sporting a full beard and long hair, shared the black-and-white gym selfie on Sunday, along with a message to the Justice League cast and crew explaining his absence from the wrap party.
‘Batman V Superman’ director Zack Snyder is once again behind the camera on ‘Justice League,’ and he shared this image of Momoa on set and in costume, in what we assume is an informal, out of character moment – unless there’s a little more to Aquaman than we’ve been expecting. Snyder tweeted, “Every day on set is an amazing adventure with this guy. It’s curious that our early looks at ‘Justice League’ present Momoa’s Aquaman as the biggest badass of the team, given how Aquaman has historically been regarded one of the silliest superheroes ever, given that his main power – as Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne smirks in the ‘Justice League’ trailer – is that he can talk to fish.
Aquaman has his foe for his own standalone film in 2018. TheWrap’s Umberto Gonzales reported Tuesday that in the “Aquaman” film, after he makes his debut in “Justice League” next year, the King of the Seven Seas will do battle with his archenemy Black Manta. First introduced in “Aquaman” issue #35 in 1967, Black Manta is the natural choice of opponent for the standalone “Aquaman” film — this villain is to Aquaman essentially as Green Goblin is to Spider-Man. Manta and Aquaman are personal enemies.
Warner Bros. and DC may be struggling to secure positive reviews for their movies (notably recent release ‘Suicide Squad’), but it hasn’t deterred them from starting work on a ‘Man of Steel’ sequel. 2013 saw Henry Cavill don the red and blue suit for the first time but any news on a follow-up has been pretty quiet until now. Instead, the focus was on ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, which was a long and gruelling process alongside new Batman Ben Affleck.
Reports from the set of Warner Bros and Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ were published earlier today, offering a ton of details about the film’s plot, villain and tone. The two costumes remain basically unchanged from 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ which is good news given how good they were. There is an alternate Batman costume coming though, for when the Dark Knight needs a bit more armour.
Why stop at Batman v Superman when you can have Superman v Flash or Batman v Aquaman? The cinematic announcement trailer for the upcoming Injustice 2 video game arrived Wednesday, teasing a monumental throwdown among DC Comics’ greatest heroes, including Batman, Superman, Flash, Aquaman, and Supergirl.
Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow are dominating headlines, and the CW’s recent acquisition of Supergirl has promised a spectacular four way crossover next year. Various fan favourite characters who wouldn’t necessarily be featured in movies are seeing exposure in these television shows - the Atom, Hawkman and Hawkgirl, Firestorm, Vibe, and even Rip Hunter. At various points within the past ten years, the CW, HBO and NBC have been looking at developing television programs featuring a rather different set of heroes.
Following on from the news that Seth Grahame-Smith has pulled out of directing ‘The Flash’, rumour has it that James Wan is expected to be the next DC drop-out. Birth.Movies.Death report that Wan is about to walk out on production of ‘Aquaman’, starring Jason Mamoa as the sea-dwelling hero. “According to multiple, reliable sources James Wan is feeling a tremendous amount of trepidation about ‘Aquaman’.
James Wan is well aware that Aquaman, the DC Comics character whose solo movie he is set to direct, is widely regarded one of the naffest superheroes around. Speaking to MTV News, the director discusses “what potential I saw in this character… As we all know, Aquaman is somewhat the butt of the joke in the superhero world. Well, given that Warner Bros and DC had already cast ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Conan the Barbarian’ veteran Jason Momoa in the role, the odds of people calling the character a wimp have already dropped significantly.
After dropping by at WonderCon this weekend, director James Wan had some interesting details to reveal about his upcoming ‘Aquaman’ movie, starring Jason Momoa. With ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ finally in cinemas, focus has shifted to the upcoming ‘Justice League’ and solo movies, especially Wan’s ‘Aquaman’, and he’s been eager to reveal his fresh approach to the often mocked character.
