December marks Aquaman’s scheduled release date, making it not only the lone Worlds of DC 2018 release, but also the only live-action superhero Christmas theatrical debut. Marvel’s Captain Marvel and Avengers 4 are slated for next year, however, the film is still expected to go up against heavy competition over the holiday season. DC fans can also expect to see Shazam! and Wonder Woman 1984 coming in 2019.
The trailer released by JoBlo is a treat for any gamer geek, featuring the original’s music transposed to retro arcade sounds, as well as classic character narrations and thought-bubble descriptions. The Street Fighter-style attacks in the Aquaman fights scenes, and 2D ocean waves and bubble patterns rendered in the backgrounds complete the feel of an old school Nintendo adventure.
Aquaman and company are seen moving in a level-to-level fashion through each scene in the trailer, representing the action-packed adventure expected from the highly anticipated DC film.
