As Entertainment Weekly’s pre-SDCC coverage continues, they’ve just debuted a ferocious first look at concept art for a sea dragon in James Wan’s upcoming DC Films adventure, Aquaman.According to their report, the gigantic sea dragons will be the primary modes of transportation for the people of Xebel, one of the seven underwater kingdoms of Atlantis. King Nereus (Dolph Lundgren) is their leader and Mera (Amber Heard) is one of their top warriors – and probably the reason why Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) pays them a visit.Everyone involved with the production is choosing to stay quiet about whether or not Curry will be seen riding one of the majestic beasts, but producer Peter Safran does offer a slight tease, more or less suggesting that the titular hero will indeed mount a sea dragon before the credits roll. “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. He’s a Xebellian creature but I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw Arthur on one at some point…”
TitansHeadlines×TITANS: A Brand-New Photo Provides Us With Another Look At The Costume For Alan Ritchson’s HawkThe Titans costumes have received a lot of attention, with Hawk’s outfit among those praised by fans. Now, a new photo gives us another look at the the suit Alan Ritchson will be sporting on the show…Vincent Hernandez | 7/18/2018Filed Under: “Titans”Earlier this week, some new character banners provided us with another look at Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy and Raven, and now we have a new shot of one of the other heroes set to appear in the live-action Titans series.The recently surfaced photo gives us a great – but filtered – look at the costume that’ll be worn by the vigilante known as Hawk. And just as past photos revealed, it appears to be an accurate take on the comic book outfit.Alan Ritchson will be bringing Hank Hall, a.k.a. Hawk, to life in the DC Universe series, but it’s not the actor we see wearing the costume in the photo below. Instead, it is Ritchson’s stunt double Justin Howell, so it’s possible we’re looking at a slightly altered costume designed for stunts.Either way, with SDCC nearly upon us, there’s a good chance we’ll get an even better look at Titans’ large cast of heroes this weekend.
As fans eagerly await the first trailer for James Wan’s Aquaman this Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con, the first offcial theaterical poster for the DC movie has been released online.The one-sheet features Jason Momoa’s titular Atlantean hero front and centre, while multiple sharks, whales, turtles and various other sea creatures converge behind him. It’s safe to say any surface dwellers that may be thinking about causing trouble for our aquatic King and his people should probably think twice!
Yesterday brought us the first theatrical poster for James Wan’s Aquaman, and now we have an awesome new SDCC magazine cover courtesy of Den of Geek which provides a first glimpse of several major characters.We have already seen Patrick Wilson’s Orm, a.k.a. Ocean Master, without his helmet, but here he is sporting his very comic-accurate armor for the first time. We also see Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Yahya Abdul-Mateen in his Black Manta garb, and the ferocious creatures known as The Trench. The cover art was inspired by an illustration from DC Comics artists Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, and Marcelo Maiolo.“The inspiration behind this original work was those classic comic book covers that gave the reader a look at the characters involved in the story and also hints of, and a feel for, their worlds,” the DC film’s producer Peter Safran reveals. “It was commissioned by James Wan in the very early R and D stages of pre-production, as he was beginning to define the worlds in which our film would live. It was not originally intended to be a one sheet, but we all loved it so much that we had the idea to transform it into a photorealistic version and use it as a poster.”
While we know that the first trailer for Aquaman will be released during Comic-Con on Saturday, it’s unclear just how much of the spotlight Shazam! is going to receive. However, the highly anticipated DC Comics adaptation is the focus of Entertainment Weekly’s Comic-Con issue and you can take a new look at the hero in all his glory below. We also have some fresh details about what to expect from it.”It’s complete wish-fulfillment — if you scour all of DC and Marvel there are very few characters that are actually stoked to be a superhero,” Shazam! lead star Zachary Levi tells the site. “They’re not brooding, they’re not put out, like ‘Oh dammit, I gotta save the world again!’ Billy Batson is like Peter Parker, they’re thrilled to have these powers and can’t wait to try them out.” Sounds cool, right? “From my perspective, Shazam! represents the next step in the evolution of the DC brand,” producer Peter Safran notes. “You had Wonder Woman, then Aquaman [coming Dec. 21] is another big step, then comes Shazam! — all different movies, but all have a unique tone that moves away from the darkness of the prior DC movies.” So, it’s not going to be another Batman v Superman then!
