Okay. I want this.

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/he...ic-con-1120927

Aquaman will be a major player at this year’s Comic-Con as Warner Bros. and director James Wan host a Hall H panel and unveil the first trailer. Capitalizing on that interest and the upcoming movie, Mattel is showcasing a re-creation of Aquaman No. 35 (from the 1962 comic) which features the underwater breathing hero’s major villains, Ocean Master and Black Manta.

The premium three-pack will have detailed six-inch figures of Aquaman, Ocean Master and Black Manta, all of whom come with 23 points of articulation, retro styling and interchangeable hands for a variety of combat conditions.

Aquaman, in his classic scaled orange and green suit, finds himself trapped between Ocean Master, with his signature cape, mask and a spear weapon, and Black Manta, who comes with three interchangeable, friction-fit eyepieces, a backpack and a harpoon.

The set will retail for $60.

Aquaman” launched with a massive $93.6 million in China, marking the best start for a Warner Bros. title in that territory.

The superhero adventure — directed by James Wan and starring Jason Momoa as the king of the seven seas — isn’t opening in North America for another two weeks, but the studio wanted to get ahead of a crowded holiday frame overseas. Warner Bros. is expanding “Aquaman” to 40 more international territories next weekend, including the United Kingdom, Mexico, Brazil and Russia. It hits domestic theaters on Dec. 21.

Its opening in China also ranks as the biggest debut for a DC title, surpassing “Justice League” ($50.5 million), “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” ($55.7 million), and “Wonder Woman” ($37.6 million). In three days, “Aquaman” has already eclipsed “Wonder Woman’s entire $93 million run in the Middle Kingdom.
Have to wait 2 more weeks.

The movie is out already, so that's pretty obvious.

My buddy always calls Jason Momoa Aquaman or Khal Drogo.

Guy doesn't even watch Game of Thrones, but he knows who Khal Drogo and Khaleesi are

I didn't think I would ever see a movie that would make Venom look good. This movie accomplished that. It's cliched. The acting is terrible. There are 15 superficial stories within one movie. The music is incoherent. In short - It's awful.

Go in with low expectations and you might enjoy yourself just laughing at how ridiculous it is. Otherwise....

Ouch. Couple reviews I read placed this second after Wonder Woman for the current universe, but the bar hasn't exactly been set high either.

Fun movie, but no real plot. Like something out of the Fast and Furious franchise.

SFX was outstanding though.

O.M.G. I can't believe I sat through the whole movie. Good thing the kids were there. All they needed was the action and occasional bad jokes.

Movie was ok. Didn't feel like the long run time that it is. Some CGI was pretty bad
