‘Aquaman’ movie release date revealed

Jason Momoa and Amber Heard lead the cast in the eagerly-anticipated superhero movie.

Warner Bros. has finally confirmed the release date of the long-awaited Aquaman movie.

The superhero movie starring Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Amber Heard as Mera will hit cinema screens on October 5, 2018, the studio confirmed via Deadline.

Momoa made his debut as Aquaman in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. He will reprise the role in next year’s Justice League movie, joined by Heard in her debut performance as Mera. Heard was cast as Mera back in March.

Aquaman, who possesses an assortment of water-based powers, made his DC Comics debut in 1941. However, Momoa’s brief appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice marked the first time the character has been seen in a live-action film.

James Wan, director of Fast & Furious 7 and The Conjuring, is directing the Aquaman movie with Batman v Superman‘s Zack Snyder serving as an executive producer.

Discussing the tone of the Aquaman movie, Wan told Collider recently: “I kind of don’t want to give too much away but know this: The spirit that I’m going for is like a classic sort of swashbuckling action adventure, sort of high seas adventure story… It’s ultimately a quest story in the spirit of Raiders Of The Lost Ark meets Romancing The Stone.”
