Is there trouble under the sea? Aquaman director James Wan took to Twitter to clear the air and address why we haven’t so much as a teaser trailer. Wan started a thread Saturday night outlining what’s the holdup: “It’s me,” Wan boldly tweeted in all caps.

There was a false rumor circulating that fans might get the highly anticipated teaser trailer this weekend. “I usually do my best to avoid internet noises (especially fabricated distractions) but a teaser-trailer going out this weekend was never in the books,” Wan tweeted. Wan stated that he doesn’t want to release a trailer that he feels isn’t finished. “I am simply not ready yet to share. This movie is filled to the gills with VFX, and the process is as slow and laborious as a sea-slug! Yes, even shots for the trailers take forever to do, and I refuse to put out anything that might be construed as subpar.”

Aquaman stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, and Nicole Kidman. Warner Bros and DC’s latest installment in their cinematic universe is set to wash up at theaters on December 21, 2018. 

Does this thread question your confidence in the film? Do you think Aquaman will suffer the same fate Justice League endured, or do you have faith that the Fast and Furious director will breath new life into the DCU?  Cast away your comments below!
