Fans of Warner Bros., DC and their DC Extended Universe of superhero film certainly had a long wait going for when the franchise was going to continue, following the November 2017 premiere of the “Justice League” super-team movie. Over a year after, this 2018, DCEU followers will get to see the past, present and future of Justice Leaguer Arthur Curry, the half-human half-Atlantean super-being “Aquaman”. Said film is arriving in cinemas this month, including the Philippines. And to drum up support, the main leads of the film will be arriving in the country for a fan meet before the premiere.
ABS-CBN News reports that Jason Momoa, who plays the titular “Aquaman” and his co-lead star Amber Heard as the Atlantean lady warrior Mera, are going to be the guests of honor at a fan event to celebrate the upcoming arrival of the DCEU film in the Philippines. Said fan meet and greet will be held next week, December 11, at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall in Pasay. For the benefit of many, the meet and greet will be free and open to all.
The event is part of a multi-city world tour with Momoa and Heard to promote “Aquaman”. Their fan events and advance screenings have taken them from Burbank, California last November 7 to, in order, Beijing (November 18), London for the world premiere (November 26), and New York City (December 1). As Momoa and Heard shared on a promotional video announcing their visit, their fan event on Manila this December 11 is in time for the Asian Regional premiere of “Aquaman”, which premieres the following day in the country. Further tour dates after the Philippines include a return to the US (Los Angeles and Miami), then Australia (Gold Coast and Sydney), and Momoa’s Hawaiian home state.
Warner-DC’s “Aquaman” follows Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry, who has used his half-Atlantean heritage to protect the world’s oceans, as he now finds himself trying to prevent the outbreak of war between his mother’s homeland of Atlantis, led by half-brother Orm the Ocean Master (Patrick Wilson) on a crusade against humanity’s abuse of the seas, and a hi-tech mercenary treasure hunter called the Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II). To do this, he must reluctantly make his bid to become king of Atlantis. The movie also stars Nicole Kidman as Arthur’s Atlantean mother, all under the direction of James Wan. “Aquaman” premieres in the US December 21
