The hero will take his place in Atlantis. In the final, new trailer for Aquaman, we get an exciting look at what’s to come. War is coming to the surface world, whether we like it or not. But Arthur (Jason Momoa) has the power to stop the war and unite the two worlds. Can he do it?

We see that Queen Atlanna (Nicole Kidman) had given Arthur this lesson as a child. Whoever wields the trident could put Atlantis back together again and unite the surface world with the water world in peace and understanding. Those who used the trident for violence would create complete devastation. She believed Arthur could use that power for good – so he was trained by Vulko (Willem Dafoe). He was going to be the best, he trained his entire life to become so. And because of it and the lessons he learned from his parents, he became the protector of the deep.

But now his half brother King Orm (Patrick Wilson) is going to bring war to the surface in an attempt to rule over humanity. Arthur has to stop him but the only way how is to find the legendary trident. The one that holds the power of Atlantis. His journey will take him all over the world, including going to Atlantis. Can he find the trident before the war? Can he become hero his people need? He’s certainly up to the challenge.

We know he finds the trident, as the ending shot indicates. So there’s no mystery there. But how will the power of the trident be used? I’m curious what it means to put “Atlantis back together again”? Is it just the symbol of ruling as other powerful weapons are or is there genuine power in it? We’ll have to wait and see. I’m really digging the costume designs of the Atlanteans – they all look, for lack of a better word, cool. The story, action, and honestly the music of this trailer made me excited for the film. I’m just hoping that I won’t be disappointed.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be…a king.

The film also stars Amber Heard (“Justice League,” “Magic Mike XXL”) as Mera, a fierce warrior and Aquaman’s ally throughout his journey; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (“Platoon,” “Spider-Man 2”) as Vulko, council to the Atlantean throne; Patrick Wilson (“The Conjuring” films, “Watchmen”) as Orm/Ocean Master, the present King of Atlantis; Dolph Lundgren (“The Expendables” films) as Nereus, King of the Atlantean tribe Xebel; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Netflix’s “The Get Down”) as the vengeful Black Manta; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (“The Hours,” “Lion”) as Arthur’s mom, Atlanna; as well as Ludi Lin (“Power Rangers”) as Captain Murk, Atlantean Commando; and Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” “Green Lantern”) as Arthur’s dad, Tom Curry.

Wan directs from a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (“The Conjuring 2”) and Will Beall (“Gangster Squad,” TV’s “Training Day”), story by Geoff Johns & James Wan and Will Beall, based on characters from DC, Aquaman created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger. The film is produced by Peter Safran and Rob Cowan, with Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Jon Berg, Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada serving as executive producers. Wan’s team behind the scenes includes such frequent collaborators as Oscar-nominated director of photography Don Burgess (“The Conjuring 2,” “Forrest Gump”), his five-time editor Kirk Morri (“The Conjuring” films, “Furious 7,” the “Insidious” films), and production designer Bill Brzeski (“Furious 7”). They are joined by costume designer Kym Barrett (“The Matrix” trilogy, “The Amazing Spider-Man”) and composer Rupert Gregson-Williams (“Wonder Woman”).
