SDCC 2017: Here’s the breakdown of the Aquaman footage shown at Hall H

July 22nd, 2017 by Marc Comments

While DC/Warner spoiled us with the extended Justice League trailer (here) at SDCC they also revealed some footage from James Wan’s Aquaman which, sadly, they haven’t revealed to the rest of the world.

While we would love to be there, sadly we couldn’t make it, so we’ve had to rely on the breakdown of the footage from the guys at io9 for their breakdown.

So, without further ado… how awesome does this sound?

A couple of men are fishing on a boat, as the French song “La Mer” plays. It’s a very serene scene, until they catch something—which stars pulling away so fast it actually starts dragging the boat into the water. But finally, the fisherman’s pole gets pulled away.

The fishermen look underwater and see a giant ship. The camera cuts up, where there are more ships, and then cuts up again, and where of course there are even more ships. As a weird creature with three fins swims by, the camera dives underwater to show an entire undersea armanda of ships below the surface, along with people riding fish and what looks like an underwater seaport (although it looks a lot like a traditional sci-fi spaceport).

Cut to Aquaman, who appears to be standing on a broken boat on the bottom of the sea. “You don’t want to talk about this, do you?” He asks someone off-screen. When he gets no response, he twirls his trident, and admits, “Neither do I.”

Momao told the audience that the ships belonged to Ocean Master, his brother.

Excitement levels through the roof? Dam, right!

Aquaman opens on December 21st, 2018.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
