After years of waiting DC have finally redeemed themselves from the slew of flops that have been coming out of the studio.

Aquaman is the sixth instalment in the DCEU with James Wan directing the story by Will Beall, Geoff Johns, David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and Wan. The superhero film features a star-studded cast of Jason Mamoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Nicole Kidman.

The story follows Arthur Curry, the secret identity of Aquaman, as he fights against his brother to claim the throne of Atlantis before Orm can declare war on the surface world. To prove his worthiness Aquaman makes his way to the deepest depths of the ocean to retrieve the mythical golden trident and thus unite land and sea.

Taking a break from the usual dark and ominous feel of the DC Universe, Aquaman doesn’t take itself too seriously while providing genuine entertainment and action.
