Aquaman Trailer

Looks good, but I'm not sure how excited I can get. I'm
tired of being burned by DC.

It looks like it could be fun.  Iím no Aquaman fan so DC/WB has a chance to catch my interest cleanly.

will probably be pretty average DC movie fare but the idea of a live action
black manta is fun.

While many of the visuals of the film look impressive, much of the character that I did not like from JL is still present.  I'll reserve judgement until I learn more about the movie proper, but at this point I am unmoved from my position that it's a hard "no" for me.

Too much CGI for me I think. They seem to have to out-spectacle the last one these days or else, and move the camera angle around so much to do so it detracts from following a story sometimes. I like Aquaman's Mom, she looks perfect, and alien-like to us land lubbers.

I would've cast Laird Hamliton! :^)

I agree with Matt. That's still not Arthur Curry's personality.

So frustrating. It looks like a really fun popcorn
action blockbuster. Not only that, it actually has
COLOURS, unlike the bulk of the DC movie output. Of
course the problem, as pointed out many times already,
is that it's not a great representation of the classic
Aquaman.

Laird is 54 YEARS OLD. 25 years ago,
maybe. But then he's never really acted,
either.

If Arthur and Orm switched actors, the whole thing would be pretty well on model.

James Wan can usually be trusted to deliver a solid action movie, and Black Manta looks cool.  I'll probably give it a go.

The visuals are spectacular, and I've liked Black Manta as a villain since
hearing his voce on the SUPERFRIENDS back when I was a kid. That said,
this Aquaman is probably too unlike the one I know and like for me to
enjoy the movie.

I'm glad they resisted the pressure to release a trailer that wasn't ready. Looking forward to this one.
