Finally DC has two films that service the characters, something they have not been able to do since they kickstarted the universe with Man of Steel. James Wan was the correct choice for the vision behind the scenes, there is 200 million on the screen and you can see it. Black Mantra entered the world and I was like a little kid at the candy store, nerd heaven. The key is respecting the source material, the guy is an underwater king of Atlantis, why would you want to attempt to base this in reality. This feels like a Flash Gordon camp movie with a solid budget. The sky is the limit for DC and as they attempt to salvage the wreckage from Justice League. You look at this film and I feel it works so much better with Justice League, while Marvel introduced everyone first, DC actually made a correct choice with Batman finding them to unite. The Justice League film should have lead to individual films straight away, I feel Warner Bros weren't confident enough from the beginning and were one foot and one foot out. This film will lead to more, and I hope Aquaman is revisited soon to ensure the series has a stable footing. Wonder Woman finally has a companion hero to share the critical and financial success. 15/01/2019.
