Aquaman starring the actor Jason Momoa hits Indian theatres on December 14

The premiere of the movie Aquaman starring the American actor Jason Momoa is fast approaching in India. The producer made a decision to release Aquaman in Asia, including India, a whole week prior to its first night in the United States. Its early release in China has beaten a number of box office receipts’ records in this populous country.

With success in the Conjuring Universe franchise, James Wan became Aquaman's director. He is a director of exceptional talent in the horror film genre.

Aquaman is one of the DC universe’s citizens. However, he is unpopular in comparison with other superheroes in the Trinity series by DC Comics such as Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

On the contrary, Aquaman is one of the most long-standing superheroes in comic books. In 1941, the combination of the author Paul Norris and the editor Mort Weisinger brought Aquaman's image to the readers for the first time.

In the DC Extended Universe’s three previous installments, Aquaman was just a cameo role. However, with the solo film 2018 Aquaman, he is the principal character. Therefore, he has an opportunity to demonstrate all his powers as the guardian of the sea.

Aquaman was one of the Justice League’s founder members. Moreover, this character also possesses an interesting origin plot. Nonetheless, he is still an unremarkable superhero among his teammates.

Aquaman has emerged in Super Friends, the popular American cartoon running from the 1970s to 1980s. At that time, Aquaman, whose real name is Arthur Curry, appeared as an image of the weak superhero possessing the comic powers.

Afterwards, DC has made the efforts to change this character’s image to a strong superhero. Also, the movie crew has constructed the complicated plots around him.

For that purpose, Zack Snyder put his absolute trust in the actor Jason Momoa when choosing him as Aquaman. Zack Snyder is the talented American director and producer well-known for the DC Extended Universe’s previous installments. Jason has accomplished his mission successfully when creating a strong Arthur Curry, different from the character's previous weak image.

Arthur Curry is the son of a lighthouse keeper and the aquatic world Atlantis’s princess. In the film, he gets involved in the fierce battle between the aquatic nation and the surface one waged by King Orm, his half-brother.

With support from Nuidis Vulko, Atlantis' counsellor, Aquaman, and Mera, King Nereus’s daughter make a journey to find the Neptune’s Trident. It’s a weapon to help them vanquish two villains, King Orm, and Black Manta. Black Manta is a ruthless high seas mercenary holding a private grudge against Arthur.

In addition to Jason Momoa, Aquaman also features the actress Amber Heard as Mera and the actor Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko. Besides, two actors Patrick Wilson and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II play the anti-heroes King Orm and Black Manta respectively.
