Posting on Instagram, Wan confirmed this by writing:
"After two years of consuming and devouring my every waking hour, this little indie movie is finally done. It was a monster undertaking. I can’t THANK enough the amazing post team of VFX/editorial/sound for working tirelessly around the clock — crazy long days, 7 days a week, for many many many weeks without a day off — towards making this a unique and beautiful film. Everyone poured their heart and soul into it, and I can’t wait to share this 21st December! In the meantime, I’m gonna go take a really long nap now."
Opening in theaters next month, Aquaman will focus on the titular underwater character (played by Jason Momoa) as he attempts to prevent his half-brother King Orm/Ocean Master (Patrick Wilson) from waging war on the surface world. To make matters more difficult for the budding king of Atlantis, there's a remorseless treasure hunter, Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II), with a submersible suit that can shoot frickin' lasers out of its helmet.
The cast also includes Amber Heard (Mera), Nicole Kidman (Queen Atlanna), Willem Dafoe (Nuidis Vulko), and Dolph Lundgren (King Nereus).
"We know Brazillians are the biggest DC fans in the world and we appreciate your support and love for our films, so we have a big surprise for you during this year's CCXP, the biggest Comic Con in the world" the Arthur Curry actor says in the video. "We will have the first official screening of Aquaman in Brazil!"
In late August, early reactions to the unfinished film made their way online after an alleged screening in Los Angeles's San Fernando Valley (per /Film). Phrases like "Good, not great" and "A phase 1 MCU film through and through" were among the tweets, which aren't entirely promising, but still somewhat positive, if true. However, since a lot of the plot takes place underwater, this movie might be the most ambitious DCEU project to date, which is meritable in and of itself.
Aquaman plunges into theaters everywhere Dec. 21.
