DC’s biggest movie of the year is only a couple of weeks away from its release. We’ve gone a whole year without a live-action DC movie (minus Teen Titans Go!). It doesn’t feel like that for some reason. It feels like Justice League was only released a couple of months ago. Speaking of Justice League, some would say James Wan’s Aquaman, is an opportunity to take Warner Bros. back into the right direction. There’s a lot of pressure James Wan’s shoulders with this film. Just the scale of the film alone is something that very few people in the industry can pull off. And today, we’ll get to see what the media thought of the film and whether James Wan’s Aquaman lives up to the hype.
As with all major releases the film was screened early to the press. A couple of weeks ago members of the press were shown the film and here are their thoughts:
Paul Shirey (Joblo)
Umberto Gonzalez (The Wrap)
Sean O’Connell (CinemaBlend)
Andrew Dyce (ScreenRant)
Jim Vejvoda (IGN)
Sean Gerber (SuperheroNewsCB)
Mike Cecchini (DenOfGeeksUS)
Carly Lane (SYFYFANGRRLS/SYFYWIRE)
There you have it. These are most the early reactions to Aquaman. You can clearly see it’s mostly positive for Aquaman. As always I will judge the movie for myself. Roll on December!
