I anticipated it would be visually impressive, but I didn't much care for the
character in JL, so I'm not sure I'll be motivated to see this in the theater

Like JL, I'll probably wait for cable with this one. Not excited for an Aquaman that bears little resemblance to the character I enjoyed as a youth.

-C!

I loved most of the trailer, but the SUPER bright red hair on Mera/Amber Head was incredibly distracting.

There was a surfer, one of the Mavericks/Half Moon Bay guys I'm pretty sure, who had a wet suit in the old Aquaman colors. That was so much fun to see! I guess modern people in charge have become embarassed or something by the original uniforms and stuff though, want to make their presence felt... whatever. I remember some min-series where they updated Aquaman with that darker costume but he seemed more a ballet dancer or refugee from a British '80s synth band with some fancy poodle type hair-do (or don't). Meh, too fancy for me. I'd rather have something on screen like an Alex Ross cover.

Other than the hidden city aspect, I honestly do not get the Black Panther comparisons.  Wonder Woman had a similar them in Themyscira being hidden, but I don't recall people saying about Black Panther, "It's Wonder Woman.... in Africa!"

Two heirs, one of whom was raised in the outside world, fighting for control or an ancient, secret, technologically advanced kingdom. One wants to rule it in peace, the other wants to use its technology to wage a world war. That's just what jumped out to me, upon first viewing, although I'm sure there's more to it, which we'll see as in later trailers as it gets closer to the release date.

I haven't seen the Wonder Woman movie, so I have no frame of reference on that.

Good points! Never would've thought of that but it fits.

“It’s Black Panther.....underwater” probably stems from this.....

When I watched that youtube clip a lot of Star Wars prequel trilogy shots seemed to come to mind.

******************************************

Main difference in AQUAMAN, just base on the trailer, unlike Black Panther, Aquaman doesn't want to rule.  He doesn't apparently care much about his mother's people and wants to be left alone.  It might be somewhat similar to Black Panther, just like Star Wars and Star Trek are similar because they show battles in space....

Except for the Momoa Aquaman--or AquaKhalDrogoMan, as I like to call him--that looks better than I would have expected. Still, it's an Aquaman movie without the actual Aquaman.

Also--putting aside how the scene seems to play out in the aquarium, which is kind of cool--they got to an "Aquaman talks to fish!" joke roughly twenty seconds into the trailer.

I think I'll pass on this one.
