The Aquaman Honest Trailer.

They did remarkably little in the way of analysis of Aquaman.

They mostly went with “Do you see this? Do you SEE this?,” on the grounds that since the movie started with full-out gonzo and stayed there there’s not much more to say. And, indeed, there is not: except that this movie was awesomely fun. You should watch it.

Slightly shockingly, Aquaman 2 is finally in the works.

Slightly, because normally this would have been green-lighted the moment Warner Bros started having difficulty hearing people because of all that MONEY.

Almost two months after opening its billion dollar hit Aquaman,Warner Bros. is starting to put the pieces together for a sequel. The studio has tapped David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, who co-wrote the first movie, to begin penning a new installment, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.  James Wan, who helmed the first movie and worked with Johnson-McGoldrick on The Conjuring 2, is making a deal to return as producer, as is Peter Safran. It is unclear at this stage whether Wan would return as director.

Warner Bros greenlights horror Aquaman-spinoff “The Trench.”

It’s Mythos time, boychik:

Warners has hired newbie scribes Noah Gardner and Aidan Fitzgerald to pen a horror-tinged script centered on the Trench, the deadly amphibious creatures seen attacking the hero and his love, Mera, in Aquaman.

Wan and Peter Safran will produce the project, titled The Trench, which would be much more modestly budgeted than the normal DC superhero tentpole.

Quote of the Day, Look, Aquaman Is Just Going To Be Cool Now edition.

I have to give the reviewer here credit for recognizing his situation.

Me: By now, the DC cinematic universe has lowered expectations to such a degree that “Aquaman” actually seems pretty alright. It’s not “Wonder Woman”-good, but it’s miles more likable than “Justice League” or “Suicide Squad.” If it’s as dumb, loud and overlong as any of the DC movies, it at least has a charm and sense of humor that jell agreeably with the ridiculousness of the story.

Me at 8 years old: This movie is the best movie I’ve ever seen in my life.
Because, in the end, Aquaman is not a movie for me. It, like Thor: Ragnarok, is at best a movie for the 8 to 15 year old version of me who still lives in my head somewhere.  Which is OK, because that version of me still gets to see all the fun stuff that they’re making now, and then go Wheeeeeee.  I can live with that.

The final Aquaman trailer.

Oh, hey, it’s got Willem Dafoe in it.

Some kind of trainer dude. That’s always nice. There’s also some kind of weird relationship between Aquaman and Atlantis there, huh? Probably disowned because he’s half-human. That sounds about right.

Looking forward to this movie.
