Aquaman: Jason Momoa teases Arthur Curry's fate in the "last frame" of the DC movie
In Momoa's own words, Aquaman origin movie is setting the stage for his grand future, something that could come to fruition in the very last scenes of the movie.
It is safe to say that currently, a lot rests on Jason Momoa's sturdy shoulders as far as the future of DCEU - dubbed Worlds of DC during the SDCC - is concerned. In fact, DC & Warner Bros would be wrapping up their superhero blockbuster line-up for 2018 with the much-anticipated 'Aquaman' solo. With anticipation building before the film's December release, the future King of Atlantis aka Jason Momoa has opened up, teasing the fate of his half-human, half-Atlantian character.
In Momoa's own words, the Aquaman origin movie is setting the stage for his grand future, something that could come to a fruition in the very last scenes of the movie. "Obviously this is the whole origin story. We've seen him in Justice League, which is two minutes of his whole life so we get to see where he came from," the actor told Entertainment Weekly from the SDCC studio.
Teasing the plot of his standalone DC movie further and explaining how Aquaman is different from the other heroes, Momoa let slip a huge detail, possibly a major spoiler from the last few scenes, hence we urge you to proceed with caution.
Momoa hinted, "I think when he was a little boy, he had these powers and he didn't hone them in so this whole journey of him going to become the king...the last frame of this movie you're going to see him actually become the thing he was destined to be."
Does this mean the solo Aquaman movie is all about Arthur Curry realizing his true potentials and assuming his rightful place as the King of Atlantis? Possibly so, and fans' best bet at answering this question is to wait until the film's release. But in the meanwhile to get the DC fandom hyped, James Wan-directed 'Aquaman' has debuted an SDCC-special trailer, jam-packed with underwater action and drama. "My father was a lighthouse keeper. My mother was a queen," begins the 2.25-minute long clip in the voice of Curry as flashes of his childhood takes over the screen. Few seconds into the trailer, fans are introduced to the future Aquaman's half-brother, King Orm who has taken over the reign and is "about to declare war upon the surface world". And as it turns out, the only way to stop the war is if Curry becomes the rightful king of the underwater.
In addition to the breathtaking glimpses of the oceanic world, Aquaman teases glimpses of Thomas Curry (Temuera Morrison), Queen Atlanna (Nicole Kidman), Amber Heard's Mera, and Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II). Can Aquaman control the wrath of the seven seas? Check out the trailer below:
