James Wan Drops Teaser Photos of ‘Aquaman’ Creatures

Ahead of its December release date, director James Wan took to Twitter to tease two creatures from the highly-anticipated “Aquaman.”

The two photos highlighted a hammerhead and tylosaur, according to Wan’s hashtags, and Nuidis Vulko (Willem Dafoe) and King Orm (Patrick Wilson) riding them, respectively.

The DC Comics film will tell the story of Arthur King (Jason Momoa), a half-human, half-Atlantean who must battle his half-brother for the throne to Atlantis and the title of King of the Seven Seas. He must also maintain peace between humans and the Atlanteans beneath the surface. Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman and Dolph Lundgren are among the film’s high-profile cast members.

Behind the scenes, Wan worked with frequent collaborators — screenplay writer David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and director of photography Don Burgess (“The Conjuring 2”), five-time editor Kirk M. Morri and production designer Bill Brzeski (“Furious 7”) — to bring the characters to life.

Wan’s tweet gained the attention of fans anticipating the movie’s release.

Wilson and Wan then engaged in a back-and-forth banter over the photos.

“Aquaman” is slated to hit theaters nationwide Dec. 21.
