2 Covers from Entertainment Weekly's Aquaman Issue

We're getting ever closer to the release of James Wan's Aquaman film starring Jason Momoa as the title DC Comics character. So close, in fact, that any word of a trailer and/or details are met with immediate excitement from fans.

Thankfully, we have a bit of break in the rising tide of anticipation, as Entertainment Weekly's newest issue features two covers and a interview with Wan about Aquaman. One cover has Momoa, as well as the first look at Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, and another glimpse of Amber Heard as Mera.

"The water world my movie takes place in is so separate and so far apart from previous DC movies it's like I'm making my own sci-fi fantasy film," Wan says in a tease of the feature interview. "This is a whole new underwater world nobody has seen before in live action."

The other cover features a *ahem* dripping wet Momoa, sporting a necklace we haven't seen the character wear yet.

Executive Producer Peter Safran says in the feature about Momoa:

"Rarely has a superhero character been married to the real-life actor as much as Aquaman and Jason Momoa. He's authentically from two worlds, he's this real physical specimen, he's got this humor which he's never been allowed to play before — in every regard he is Aquaman."

WB's DCEU film Aquaman splashes into theaters on December 21st, 2018.
