Of all the films being showcased at Comic-Con, “Aquaman” had some of the biggest advance buzz.
The presence of Oscar winner Nicole Kidman and Amber Heard didn’t hurt either.
The film is due to be released in December, but it was only until the cast appeared at a San Diego Comic-Con panel on Saturday that the trailer was finally revealed.
The trailer, which appears above, shows the undersea kingdom of Atlantis, as well a potential catch phrase for Momoa: “Permission to come aboard.”
The trailer made a big splash with some people…
Yeah, it’s been a punchline for decades, the #Aquaman trailer is LIT, nicely combining the epic with the personal, and Jason Momoa is an actor who’s always had screen presence to burn, going back to his Stargate: Atlantis days. https://t.co/YqIt78vns2

…while others considered it all wet:
That #Aquaman trailer is the most 1997 thing I’ve seen in twenty years. How it didn’t have Chumbawumba and prodigy playing during it, I will never know.
Also, that goat reaction shot? ??
