You guys all know how much I LOVE my super heroes… So, I had to write about the new Aquaman. I really want to investigate this further to see if I approve.. lol. Just kidding… wait… no, I’m not. I not gonna lie, I am picky as you know what, when it comes to my Superheroes. I just cant help it… In fact, Ill be even more honest and say that while the actor cast as Aquaman, Jason Momoa, best known for his role as Khal Drogo in HBO’s Game Of Thrones, is well, gorgeous… I’m not sure he fits the mold for me. He certainly isn’t the Aquaman I’m used too but, I am willing to give this update a chance. I get excited every time a new Superhero movie comes out, and this one is no different… and I always have high expectations! Hopefully, it doesn’t disappoint…
I mean, this movie has been in the works for quite a while now… the making of it was first announced back in 2014, and its release date has been pushed back now several times. A creation from none other than Warner Brothers, of course, they wanted two scripts to be completed in full so that they could choose the best version to go with. I’m sure that does take some time but, its been long enough. Over 4 years should be ample time.
First off, our story takes place just after the whole Justice League. “James Wan, definitely knows where he’s going with Aquaman, and the movie takes place in a world where Justice League happened, and Man Of Steel happened.” says, Charles Roven, Executive Producer. Wan also stated that he was choosing to direct this film over The Flash, as he was expecting to have more creative freedom with this one.
Aquaman will be released in theaters December 21, 2018…. or should I say, that’s our estimated date, we know how these things go. Our story begins with Arthur Curry learning he is the heir to the entire Atlantis Kingdom. He soon realizes that it is up to him to lead his people and save the world.
It has been said by Wan that this is sort of a “high seas adventure story”….and yes, there’s a twist of love for the ladies. It’s you know, the love-hate sort of relationship at first but, soon Aquaman does fall in love. As, if looking at Jason Momoa for an hour and a half or so isn’t good enough reason to watch…lol.
Warner Brothers certainly has a lot riding on this film, not only have they invested over 4 years into it already, they are on a mission to compete with Marvel’s Superhero franchise, not such an easy thing to do my friends, we know that. Though, Warner Brother’s has had much success with “Dawn Of Justice,” “Batman Vs Superman” and “Suicide Squad,” all received pretty sad reviews from critics. Now, that being said these ratings have never meant much to me.. Often times I find myself loving movies with were bad reviews… In fact, I loved all the movies I just listed. It seems so strange that they were given anything but great reviews. Batman Vs Superman, to me, was a bit slow but, I could see where they were going with it. When creating a franchise, you have to start somewhere, we cant fault them for that.
As, you know Aquaman had a cameo in Batman Vs Superman and an even larger role in the Justice League, along with Wonder Woman, both making an appearance to let us know they were headed for the big screen soon too. I love how intertwined the Justice League is… it gives us a chance to see them all in action together and lets us enjoy each and every individual story. This opens up so many doors for Warner Brothers. It is so smart of them to head in this direction. If you want to compete with a giant such as Marvel, you have to create a never ending story filled with Superhero’s we know and love, wouldn’t you agree, this is their best bet by far. Marvel, has had this area cornered for a long time and you have to go huge when wanting to take on the same level of success.
