Exhausted James Wan Announces “Monster” AQUAMAN Movie is Finished

Aquaman is pretty much the red-headed stepchild of the DC Universe, but we’ve been following news of the hero’s upcoming feature film for one particular reason: It’s directed by 21st Century Master of Horror James Wan, mastermind of the Saw and Conjuring franchises. Indeed, throughout the film’s production, Wan has promised that horror fans will be pleased with the end results. While it’s difficult to imagine a horror-centric Aquaman, our collective curiosities have been piqued.

Aquaman is slated to hit theaters on December 21st and, this weekend, Wan announced via Instagram that the production is officially in the can.

“After two years of consuming and devouring my every waking hour, this little indie movie is finally done. It was a monster undertaking. I can’t THANK enough the amazing post team of VFX/editorial/sound for working tirelessly around the clock — crazy long days, 7 days a week, for many many many weeks without a day off — towards making this a unique and beautiful film. Everyone poured their heart and soul into it, and I can’t wait to share this 21st December!”

Our friend at CinemaBlend recently got an exclusive look at some footage from Aquaman; if you aren’t afraid of spoilers, give their recap a spin below, followed by the synopsis and trailer for the film. Aquaman stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Nicole Kidman.

Aquaman finds himself caught between a surface world that ravages the sea and the underwater Atlanteans who are ready to revolt.
