Where art thou, "Aquaman"?
A test screening for the DCEU's next movie -- starring Jason Momoa (Arthur Curry/Aquaman) and Amber Heard (Mera) -- supposedly happened in February, and went very well. The first official "Aquaman" trailer was rumored to debut this past weekend at WonderCon ... but that didn't happen.
Turns out, it was never going to happen because director James Wan is still busy tweaking the film.
James Wan set the record straight on Twitter:
Hey friends, I usually do my best to avoid internet noises (especially fabricated distractions) but a teaser-trailer going out this weekend was never in the books — despite what some claim. It's not because of anyone or any nefarious reason holding it back — IT'S ME. (1/3)— James Wan (@creepypuppet) March 25, 2018
I am simply not ready yet to share. This movie is filled to the gills with VFX, and the process is as slow and laborious as a sea-slug! Yes, even shots for the trailers take forever to do, and I refuse to put out anything that might be construed as subpar. (2/3)— James Wan (@creepypuppet) March 25, 2018
I know it seems like nothing much is brewing above the surface, but I can assure you, we're working nonstop under the waves 🌊 😉 (3/3)— James Wan (@creepypuppet) March 25, 2018
(Ps: And yes, I plan to use oceanic puns/references every chance I get 😂)
So far, fans are putting their trust in James Wan to deliver for the DCEU, with fingers crossed for minimal-to-no meddling from Warner Bros.:
We believe in you, Mr, Wan! 🌊😉🔥 pic.twitter.com/7IwsCzBdJC— ❝Soufyan❞™ (@TheSomeGuy97) March 25, 2018
