What's the story?
Who's in the cast?
Momoa (best known for playing Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones) returns to the role of Arthur Curry, and Amber Heard will play his love interest Mera – both were introduced in Justice League last year. They're joined by Nicole Kidman as Curry's mother, Queen Atlanna, and Willem Dafoe, who's no stranger to comic book movies (having appeared in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy).
Who's the director?
It's James Wan's first dive into the comic book world, being a widely known director of horror movies. His directorial debut was Saw, as well as Insidious and The Conjuring (its spin-off, The Nun, came out in early September). Working with water (even CGI water) proved to be challenging, and in a recent interview Wan said: 'You have to think about CG with the hair and how their clothing moves, how they are floating, what kind of rig we put them on'. The film is certain to reach a visual and technological feat.
Aquaman is the fifth film in the DC Extended Universe. Added together, the DCEU has grossed over $3.7 billion worldwide at the box office. This latest instalment hits UK cinemas on 14 December.
