Taking to Twitter earlier today, director James Wan calmed the storm by explaining why it is taking so long for the standalone adaptation to receive its first-ever trailer. Actor Dolph Lundgren who is portraying the character of King Nereus in the upcoming DC Film has revealed that the movie is now undergoing additional photography.
Lundgren took to Instagram to share a short video story when he was on his way to set. You can check out the picture below. According to Wan, he's simply not ready to release a trailer for the film - and sounds like he's got our own best interests in mind by not getting one out there yet.
"Hey friends, I usually do my best to avoid internet noises (especially fabricated distractions) but a teaser-trailer going out this weekend was never in the books-despite what some claim", the filmmaker wrote. "It's not because of anyone or any nefarious reason holding it back - IT'S ME", James Wantweeted. "Yes, even shots for the trailers take forever to do, and I refuse to put out anything that might be construed as subpar", Wan continued. Superhero movies in general often contain a lot of VFX work and considering the underwater component of the film, Aquaman will likely require more even more. However, this runs counter to a report back in February which said that early reactions had been positive, praising he film for having "tons of action" and being very emotional.
At the very latest, fans can probably expect a look at "Aquaman" this July when the film will nearly certainly be the centerpiece of WB's Hall H showcase at San Diego Comic-Con. So, the chances of Aquaman'sfirst trailer rolling out during the San Diego Comic-Con 2018 event are pretty high, considering its December 21, 2018, release date.
