It remains to be seen if audiences at large will be taken by Aquaman, but for now this trailer and the following bevy of images offer a tantalizing tease for fans familiar enough with the source material. One that was exclusive to those actually at Hall H. There's always something exclusive. While Wan's filmography of Saw, The Conjuring, and Furious 7 wouldn't immediately lead you to believe he's the best person to tackle a daunting comic book adaptation like Aquaman, the guy's background shows he clearly enjoys (and succeeds in) creating lush worlds, and Aquaman is no exception. It is also one of the biggest asset that Warner Bros is getting ready to showcase at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday.

The new Aquaman trailer sets the stage for the conflict brewing in Atlantis, which finds Curry squaring up against his Atlantean half-brother Orm aka Ocean Master (Patrick Wilson).

Aquaman also stars Amber Heard (Justice League, Magic Mike XXL) as Mera, a fierce warrior and Aquaman's ally throughout his journey; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (Platoon, Spider-Man 2) as Vulko, council to the Atlantean throne; Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring films, Watchmen) as Orm/Ocean Master, the present King of Atlantis; Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables films) as Nereus, King of the Atlantean tribe Xebel; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Baywatch, The Get Down) as the vengeful Black Manta; and Oscar victor Nicole Kidman (The Hours, Lion) as Arthur's mom, Atlanna.

Aquaman will hit theaters on December 21.
