We are heading into a huge week for DC & Warner Bros. as they roll out the heavy press campaign for films like Wonder Woman 1984, Shazam, and this years big release, Aquaman. Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as the titular character alongside him is Patrick Wilson, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe.
Jason Momoa was first introduced in the DCEU in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and later as a full fledged character in Justice League. Momoa will lead the charge in his solo outing as the character is confronted with responsibilities and legacy as an Atlantean. The current synopsis of the film reads as follows "Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and to be a hero to the world." With a MARVEL-Less presence this year at San Diego Comic Con, DC is looking to steal the show with possible Aquaman & Shazam trailers and other exclusive DC content in Hall H.
Continuing the DC talk, Shazam also has some publicity ahead of SDCC. Photos reveal a fun and BIG like tone for the superhero flick. Zachary Levi stars as the titular hero Shazam aka Billy Batson who turns into the older hero in time of need. The premise of a kid transforming into a hero is reminiscent of an 80's good time film. Asher Angel who will play the teen Billy Batson is joined by Jack Dylan Grazer (IT), Ross Butler (13 Reasons Why), Grace Fulton (Annabelle Creation), and Mark Strong (Kingsman franchise). A fun hero film where a kid gets to live out his wildest fantasies is a film we haven't seen all to often with the exception of Tom Holland's Spiderman Homecoming in the Marvel universe. Aquaman hits theaters December 21st, 2018 and Shazam arrives in early 2019.
