Director James Wan Explains That Big Tidal Wave Scene From The AQUAMAN Trailer


If you’ve seen the trailer for Aquaman, you know there’s a big epic scene involving a tidal wave. Some fans have been wondering how that could fit into the story. Well, it turns out context is everything as many fans have been theorizing that it was maybe an attack by Atlantis on land-dwellers, but they’re not correct. EW has released a new photo from the film showing a giant tital wave and James Wan explains that it’s a warning:

The context of that photo is basically the Atlantic coastline is being hit by tidal waves and it’s not actually an attack from Atlantis but a warning sign of what’s to come. It’s basically a message from King Orm [Patrick Wilson] and he’s throwing our warships and waste back onto the land.

The trailer and images don’t really do it justice. The crazy part is there’s so much movie, what’s out there has barely scratched the surface.

Also, Wan goes on to explain that that crazy cool action-packed chase scene in the extended trailer involving Black Manta and explains that it’s only half of the scene:

That’s the crazy thing is that one long take shot that everybody seems excited about in the trailer, that’s only half the shot. And it doesn’t have the context of how it comes to play. So hopefully in the actual movie it’s more enjoyable because you’ll have context.

Aquaman will premiere in theaters December 21, 2018.
