James Wan's AQUAMAN Gets an Official Release Date
Warner Bros. has officially set the release date for James Wan's Aquaman for October 5th, 2018. This is one of two release dates that were set by the studio for a couple of unknown DC film projects. The second date is for July 27th, 2018, and a film has yet to be placed in that slot.
A lot of fans, including myself, thought that Aquaman would fill the July date and that Ben Affleck's Batman solo film would fill the October one. Maybe it's actually the other way around. Who knows, though, another DC film could end up filling the slot.
Aquaman is set to star Jason Momoa, and he made his silly little debut in Batman v Superman. He will be joined by Amber Heard as Mera, Queen of Atlantis, and Willem Dafoe as advisor Vulko.
When previously talking about the film, Wan described it as a "swashbuckling action adventure, sort of high seas adventure story. It's ultimately a quest story in the spirit of Raiders of the Lost Ark meets Romancing the Stone." He also said that he really wants "to get the classic action-adventure-romance aspect through that, and I think that’s kind of fun."
The only thing that gives me hope that this movie will be good is the fact that Wan is helming it. Hopefully he can make a great Aquaman film that fans will love.
