DC fans, it’s time to get excited! We are finally just days away from the world premiere of the very first Aquaman trailer and it seems like there’s no one more excited than film director James Wan.
Over the past several weeks, we’ve gotten a ton of incredible first look photos as well as some killer magazine covers featuring film star Jason Momoa and the cast, but the one thing missing is the trailer! Wan has previously commented that nothing, in particular, is holding up its debut other than the fact that he’s simply not ready to share until the trailer cut is perfect. Wan previously posted on Twitter, “I am simply not ready yet to share. This movie is filled to the gills with VFX, and the process is as slow and laborious as a sea-slug! Yes, even shots for the trailers take forever to do, and I refuse to put out anything that might be construed as subpar.”
With a full trailer just days away from debuting at San Diego Comic-Con, Wan excitedly shared a first look at what he has in store and it looks like fans will be blown away!
Wan took to Twitter to share a behind-the-scenes sneak peek at the trailer which he says is just about ready. He captioned the photo, “Working overtime to put the finishing touches for this coming week!! Eeeeeee” Check it out below:

What a truly epic shot to share as a first look! Fans will immediately notice that Aquaman appears to have his traditional trident back as well. The hype here is real. We can’t wait to see more of this film and to see the full trailer dropping at SDCC this week.
After his first appearance in 2016’s Batman V. Superman and later on in DC’s Justice League, Momoa reprises his role as Arthur Curry (aka. Aquaman, half-human, half-Atlantean and King of the Seven Seas, ruler of Atlantis). The film also stars Amber Heard (as Mera), Patrick Wilson (as the villainous Orm/Ocean Master), Temuera Morrison (as Tom Curry), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (as Black Manta), Nicole Kidman (as Queen Atlanna), Dolph Lundgren (as King Nereus) and Oscar-nominee Willem Dafoe (as Nuidis Vulko).
Aquaman is directed by James Wan, best known for his work on The Conjuring and Insidious films. This is Wan’s first dip into the superhero world. He also directed Furious 7 which ended up being the top grossing film of the Fast and Furious franchise. Peter Safran is producing along with Zack and Deborah Snyder, Rob Cowan, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
The trailer will be released during San Diego Comic-Con which runs from July 19th – 22nd. Aquaman will officially splash down into theaters on December 21, 2018.
