Prior to this weekend’s Aquaman Comic-Con trailer, new concept art has been released in addition to the first movie poster and images.
The concept art features a a massive sea dragon!
EW points out that “the sea dragons are ridden by the people of Xebel — one of the seven underwater kingdoms of Atlantis, their leader is King Nereus (Dolph Lundgren) and Mera (Amber Heard) is one of their warriors.”
“The idea was to turn on its head the idea of Aquaman riding a seahorse, take something for which he was mocked and turn it into something terrifying and impressive,” producer Peter Safran offers. “He’s a Xebellian creature but I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw Arthur (Jason Momoa) on one at some point…”
Aquaman has a December 21, 2018 release starring Jason Momoa as the titular character, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm the Ocean Master, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, with Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Nicole Kidman is playing Queen Atlanna, and Dolph Ludgren is King Nereus.
