“Justice League” director Zach Snyder celebrated his birthday March 1 by releasing a teaser of the film due out on November 17. In the all-too-brief clip below, we see Aquaman (Jason Momoa) gliding effortlessly through the stormy sea on his way to an encounter with his nemesis Ocean Master (Patrick Wilson).
The two are half-brothers. Aquaman is Arthur Curry, son of Tom Curry, a lighthouse keeper and Atlanta, an outcast from the lost, underwater city of Atlantis. After Atlanta ties, Tom remarries and has another son, Orm, who resents Arthur. As an adult, he suffers from amnesia and is transformed into the Ocean Master.
“Justice League” is the fifth film in the DC Extended Universe series that Snyder kicked off with “Man of Steel” in 2013. That reboot of the Superman character starred Henry Cavill as the the title character and he is slated to appear in “Justice League” as is Ben Affleck as Batman. The Caped Crusader and Man of Steel recruit Aquaman, Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) to battle Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) and his army of Parademons.
The underwater superhero was seen briefly in Snyder’s “Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice” last spring. Momoa is already set to reprise the role in an Aquaman stand-alone film. That one, directed by James Wan “Furious 7”), is due out on October 5, 2018.
