"Aquaman" - Leaked Set Footage

Take a look at leaked footage from the set of the DC Comics adaptation "Aquaman", starring Jason Momoa, that " going to look very different," according to director James Wan. "It will feel very different, aesthetically, tonally...story-wise...":

"Justice League was only a weekend in Arthur Curry’s life," said Momoa, who plays 'Arthur Curry', the 'Aquaman'.

"This is a totally different beast. In 'Aquaman', you see when his parents met and what happened to them.

"Then the little boy being raised and finding his powers and going through that and never being accepted on either side. And then becoming this man who puts up all these walls. 

"You just slowly see this man harden up and be completely reluctant wanting to be king and not knowing what to do with these powers he has..."

"Aquaman has been the joke of the comic book world," said Wan, "but the more I thought about it, the more I thought how cool that would be. 

"Let’s take the character everybody makes fun of and do something really interesting with him." 

Oscar winner Nicole Kidman plays 'Queen Atlanna', the mother of 'Aquaman'.

"...created by Robert Bernstein and Ramona Fradon for DC's "Adventure Comics" #260 (1959) 'Atlanna' is a member of the 'Atlantean Royal Family' and the mother of 'Aquaman'.

"In her first origin stories she left 'Atlantis' to travel abroad, but was almost killed in a raging hurricane. Her unconscious body was found by 'Tom Curry', an ex-sailor, now lonely lighthouse keeper. 

"Tom nursed her back to health, then made love with the princess, until they had a son 'Arthur Curry'.

"She kept her Royal Atlantean origins secret, until on her deathbed, she confessed the truth about her life to Tom and young Arthur..."
