Thread: Aquaman - Movie

  1. #11
    Apples and Oranges, IMO. Thor, while I'm not his biggest Fan. Does have a diverse world to explore, with a vast character lineup. Not to mention that he's a prominent Avenger member! If it weren't for Thor, and even Avengers. We might not have GOTG. He certainly has the ability o open up Marvels space faring side of story telling!
    Also, I have to say that I was impressed with the first Thor. Better than i thought it would be.

    Aquaman doesn't really have that much going for him, he talks to fish. That's not to say some parts won't be good. I'm sure with state of the art CGI, Atlantis will look Awesome!

    They are similarly unrelate-able. They both speak in a classical English style. They are both leaders of an isolated, mythical race of superbeings with advanced technology. They both sport a similar look. Thor has a supporting cast of Asgardians that most people were unfamiliar with (Sir, the Warriors Three, Frost Giants, Dark Elves, etc.) and Aquaman has the various Atlantean/Underwater groups. The modern Aquaman is roughly analogous with Thor, at least in personality. They are both founding-- yet less well known-- members of their respective universe's greatest superhero teams (Avengers and Justice League).

    Thor was definitely never a guaranteed winner at the box office. His movies have to be good, generally, for his franchise to succeed. Aquaman- I think- is in a similar position. But if Thor can do well in the mainsteam, so can Aquaman - to some extent. Both of them can capitalize on their LotR/Game of Thrones-like appeal. That means, if the Aquaman solo movie tanks, it's not so much the fault of the character, but that of the creative team behind the movie.

    I just have no confidence that Aquaman will get a good story, and everyone but DC will understand why.

    If anything, Wonder Woman is DC's answer to Thor.

    Mystery In Space, the Starlin one from several years ago, or perhaps R.E.B.E.L.S.

    Those titles featured characters like Captain Comet, Adam Strange, the Weird, Prince Gavyn Starman, Hawkman, Starfire, Vril Dox, the Omega Men, L.E.G.I.O.N.... they've even got Tyrone the telepathic bulldog, a parallel to Cosmo, the telepathic Soviet dog (seen in the movie as part of the Collector's collection; in the comics, he's actually in charge of Knowhere's security).

    It’s Official: James Wan to Direct the Aquaman Movie!

    Warner Bros. Pictures has just announced that director James Wan (Furious Seven, The Conjuring) is officially set to take the helm of the studio’s upcoming Aquaman feature film! Jason Momoa (“Game of Thrones”) is starring as the sea-dwelling superhero. The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, Warner Bros. Pictures.

    “We’ve been so lucky to have worked with James, first on New Line’s ‘The Conjuring’ and now on their upcoming ‘The Conjuring 2,'” says Silverman, “and are thrilled to have him on board as we continue to expand our DC slate. The ‘Aquaman’ film will be a major tentpole picture for us and James’s span of work has proven him able to take on any manner of project, bringing his incredible creative talent and unique voice to the material.”

    Wan will also be supervising the script by Kurt Johnstad (300, 300: Rise of an Empire). Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder and Zack Snyder will serve as producers.

    “James is not only a great storyteller but can make action truly explode on the big screen,” says Roven, “and Jason has a dynamic presence that commands your attention. Together, they will bring an undeniable vitality and energy to this character as he headlines his first feature film.”

    The character’s first comic book appearance was in 1941’s “More Fun Comics” #73. Created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, Aquaman went on to become a founding member of the Justice League of America two decades later. Until now, the character has never made it to the big screen. Aquaman’s sole live-action appearance was as a teen on the WB’s “Smallville.” The character was planned for a spinoff series, “Mercy Reef,” but the property never made it beyond the pilot stage.

    Before appearing in his solo film, Momoa’s Aquaman will make his big screen debut in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, set to hit theaters on March 25, 2016. It’s also a near certainty that he’ll be back for Justice League: Part One, arriving November 10, 2017. Aquaman then hits the following summer with Justice League: Part Two following on June 14, 2019.

    So the trailer is out, and I got to say that it's got some interesting aspects. Looks good so far, but I've been fooled before.

    I think there's lots to like about the trailer.

    1st- I love the very comic book 'esque look to Black Manta.. YES YES YES thank you.. stick with the basics.. One of my peeves sis when you take these comics and stories that have worked for decades, and someone wants to come in and give their "artistic impression".. keep your artsy fartsy view, we don't want it.. we want what has worked all these years. So thank you for that.

    Also, I like the aquarium scene.. love the whole bullies turn on their heels thing.. works for me every time in any movie.

    Lots of potential here.. and lots to like. Just one piece of the DC universe.. hopefully this turns out to be a really good and entertaining flick.

    This trailer was just more of the same old, same old from DC. Still, it's not being directed by Snyder, so there is a chance it turns out halfway decent.

    I'll stay optimistic about this one but the trailer is at least more promising than the BatmanvsSuperman or Justice league movies.
