    How was Orm able to send tidal waves to the surface? I remember Mera telling Arthur this was just the beginning. Is that part of his ability?

    Just saw it, thought Manta costume was neat and the Aquaman costume was neat too. Nothing really wowed me thought or left me with a lasting memory. They didn't use that theme I loved from the last trailer, that was a main reason I decided to go.

    I'm guessing with the tech that Atlantis has, this is easily done through some massive generator. Doesn't actually have to be a powerset.

    A major Part of Superhero Storytelling is tragedy and how the Hero reacts to it. Manta killing Arthur's Son is fine.

    Most likely they'll probably have Manta kill Arthur's dad as it would be a more direct parallel to his story and because I doubt we will get a significant enough of a time jump for a son to be rasied (they aint gonna kill a baby)/

    Maybe someone can help me out. I couldn’t understand Black Manta’s first line of dialogue when he first showed up in Sicily. Anybody know what he said?

    I don't remember what exactly he said. But I do remember that it was an HP Lovecraft quote. The Dunwich Horror on Thomas Curry's coffee table, Black Manta quoting Lovecraft, and the Trench kinda resembles the fish people from The Shadow over Innsmouth. I think those were the Lovecraft references that Wan had in the movie.

    Yes, I really enjoyed this movie. Love the fight scenes and the way they were shot in the submarine rescue, Atlanna's in the beginning and Mera's. I love the varied action/fight scenes.

    Loved the movie (saw it on Saturday). Great special effects, reminded me of Avatar, Lord Of The Rings, Star Wars and Indiana Jones all rolled into one.

    The best thing for me was Nicole Kidman, man, she looked super-fine and I loved her scenes.

    Yeah, she was really good. Great casting and I hope we see her again in sequels.

    Nicole is such a pro. She gave the same level of commitment and conviction to this like in some super serious films she does

    It’s great. I wasn’t sure we’d get that from her but she really committed.

    Don't know which scene was deleted for the UK Cut. But, this scene was deleted by Wan as he thought it might be deemed as too weird..

    "As much as I loved it. He had this sequence where… Aquaman has been apprehended by King Orm and he's been thrown into this dungeon. Like this really awful prison deep in Atlantis.

    "He ends up starting a prison riot, where all the guards are sharks. They were shark-guards, like all shark head…" he continued.

    The director then went on to describe the even crazier part of the scene, which sees Arthur Curry escape with "clouds of blood billowing everywhere". Wan continued: "He kills one of the shark guards and the shark starts bleeding and then that starts a feeding frenzy among all the other shark guards. It just went nuts.

    "We’re talking like clouds of blood billowing everywhere and he uses that to escape. I was like, 'Holy crap, I don’t know if I can do that'."

    Aquaman director reveals he cut this scene because it was too "weird"

    So just curious, did any of you guys have an audience that.... laughed AT the movie at parts? Like for example, in my second showing, although the crowd loved it, there were some moments where you could tell some people werent buying into the more... comic booky aspects of it. Like, in the 3rd act that scene where Orm puts on his mask, turns to the camera and his theme kicks in and he says “you can call me....OCEAN MASTER.” There was very audible cackling at absurdity of it even though that was very clearly intended to be serious.

    But to me, maybe its cuz i was so into the movie hy that point, but that was badass moment. Lol
