Aquaman releases on December 21.

Warner Bros has released new posters from their upcoming DC superhero film Aquaman. The new posters carry forward the colourful vibe that promotional material regarding this James Wan directorial has already established. Unlike most DC film universe movies, Jason Momoas Aquaman has a rich, vivid palette.

Earlier DC movies like Man of Steel and Batman v Superman were criticised for having a dour tone, literally and figuratively. The scenes were too dark and matched the nihilistic heroes (Superman and Batman) that Zack Snyder had envisioned. After poor reviews, Warner Bros and DC sought course correction. Wonder Woman was vibrant, for instance. But Aquaman truly feels like a departure.

Check out the new #Aquaman character posters now – in theaters December 21.

The synopsis of the movie reads, “From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be…a king.”
