They say blood is thicker than water — but does that hold up underwater?
Audiences may find out in Warner Bros’. upcoming Aquaman movie, which director James Wan says will tell a “Shakespearean” tale of sibling rivalry set against a sci-fi/fantasy backdrop.
Speaking to EW at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday, the filmmaker teased the central conflict between Jason Momoa’s titular hero (a.k.a. Arthur Curry) and his villainous brother, Orm (who also goes by the nom de guerre Ocean Master). “The main antagonist in this movie is Orm, played by Patrick Wilson,” Wan said. “And Black Manta, played by Yahya [Abdul-Mateen], is caught up in that world with them as well. But the main drive really is, it’s almost a very classic Shakespearean story about brother from another world vs. brother from another world. And it really is a classic story of sibling rivalry.” Wan added that Aquaman will be unique among superhero movies because its danger comes not from the sky or another dimension, but from the depths.
I found this #BatmanvSuperman Battle Ready #Aquaman last year on #Amazon for VERY cheap...I think around $5.00.
I like how this is more or less a mash-up of classic Aquaman and the #DCEU version played by @prideofgypsies
I might try to do a proper review of it once things settle down for me.
