Unveiled by Den of Geek in honor of Comic-Con, audiences get a glimpse of the Watchmen star in his full Ocean Master getup. There is also a first look at Lundgren as King Neerus and a new shot of Black Manta’s iconic helmet, but there’s no doubt that Ocean Master dominates the cover.
Wan has collected an all-star cast for the movie, which will once again see Jason Momoa reprise his role as Arthur Curry from Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s Justice League. Wilson will join the likes of Momoa, Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Kidman, Dolph Lundgren and Willem Dafoe in the underwater adventure.
First introduced in 1966’s Aquaman #29, Orm the Ocean Master has become thorn in Curry’s side over the years. Wan is going for a classic look for Ocean Master that comes complete with the character’s spiny helmet and glowing, red, eyes.

In the film, Aquaman will be pitted against his long-lost brother in the movie that will rely on a tale of “classic sibling rivalry.” The Aquaman and Ocean Master war was famously brought to life in Geoff Johns “Throne of Atlantis” storyline with artwork from Ivan Reis and Paul Pelletier.
Aquaman will be at the center of Warner Bros.’ Hall H presentation on Saturday, alongside fellow DC films Shazam! and Wonder Woman 1984.
