Aquaman SDCC Trailer #Aquaman


Quote:
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.

It's basically Black Panther. Estranged native comes to a hidden fantastical city to challenge his relative for kingship and it's decided in ritual combat.

You do realize that that is a very old story trope that predates Black Panther right? Also, the estranged native is the "good guy" this time round.

I just found the similarities amusing, coming so close after Black Panther. I'm not a huge Aquaman fan, so I don't know if this is one of his story arcs or not.

Yep. Pretty much the standard story of Aquaman. All good. Shame that Black Panther had to rip it off /s

Not being familiar with Aquaman either, I watched this and immediately thought “meh, I already watched Black Panther a few months ago...”

DC just can’t catch a break....

What do you mean "end"? That's all these DC/Marvel "films" are. One giant CGI shitfest from start to finish.

And since everybody keeps paying for this garbage there is currently no end of it in site.

True enough. However, those of us with MoviePass aren't actually paying much if anything for it (depends how many films you see, yadda yadda, calculations). Some idiot bankers and venture capitalists are burning their cash pile paying for us.

Until that ride ends, I'm going to enjoy it all the way into bankruptcy.

I mean, it looks better than most of the movies currently out there. While that's not saying much, I'll take what I can get at this point.

I was super excited all those years back, especially as I'd just started watching Smallville, to find this:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0498318/?ref_=nv_sr_2

The pilot didn't do that well and Justin became the Arrow. Pretty much the exact same start as this film.

The quality of Marvel CGI is far superior to DC CGI. I watched Justice League and it felt like they took PS2 developers who've been in a coma for a decade and had them do the CGI. When comparing to something like GOTG it isn't even close. Barely batter than the DC TV shows.

The unfortunate part is that the two films were developed almost simultaneously; Black Panther started in filming in January 2017 and Aqua Man started filming in May 2017. Both films were written within the same timeframe, as well.

I wonder how many people involved with Aqua Man were muttering, "...Well, fuck." after Black Panther was released?

They could care less. They know all too well that the demographic that watches this shit would watch an actual piece of shit if they CGI'd a leotard & cape on it & then CGI'd some random bullshit in the background.
