We're just over a month away from the release of DC's latest standalone superhero flick, "Aquaman," and to celebrate, studio Warner Bros. has released two new posters for the film. And the bold, colorful images offer clues not only about the story, but the overall vibe of the movie, too.

While the film's first poster put the focus on our titular hero's underwater kingdom, he almost appeared dwarfed by the swirling sea of creatures surrounding him. In these new images,there's no doubt that Aquaman (Jason Momoa) is in charge -- and has an equal partner in Mera (Amber Heard).

As Collider notes, Aquaman and Mera eventually become king and queen of Atlantis in the comics, so these regal-looking images are a bit of a clue as to what lies ahead for the pair. Of course, the crux of "Aquaman" is the conflict that stands in the way of that future, as our heroes must fight to protect their realm under the sea.

Lest you worry that this is yet another cookie-cutter superhero film, though, the folks at DC want to assure audiences that this movie will offer a decidedly different vibe from past super-serious DCEU entries (we're looking at you, "Batman v Superman"). After all, this is a movie that features soldiers riding into battle on great white sharks. How could that not be fun?

"Aquaman" also stars Temuera MorrisonDolph LundgrenYahya Abdul-Mateen IIPatrick Wilson, and Nicole Kidman. It opens on December 21.
