​DC's next big film might be coming out this December, but there hasn't been a single shot of Aquaman or trailer debuted since Justice League.


Many DC Comics fans have complained about the lack of promotion and marketing for the film, but the film still has tons of time, around half a year, until it's debut on screen.

Director James Wan, most known for his work on horror films such as The Conjuring, took to Twitter yesterday to poke fun at those saying the marketing campaign hasn't started yet by reposting a picture of someone getting a DC gumball with the Aquaman logo on it from a 25 cent vending machine.

Sure, it's not a trailer, official poster, or a picture of ​Jason Momoa, but in all actuality there's no reason to heavily promote a Christmas-time released film in June, so I have to side with Wan on this one. If anything, the constant fan anger over lack of marketing is some pretty great marketing in of itself, keeping ​Aquaman in the spotlight without even releasing a movie poster.

"It's a very technically challenging shoot to be on," Wan said of filming Aquaman. "Working with water, and even the dry-for-wet sequences are very complex. … Our equivalent of two people sitting around chatting in the underwater world is super complicated. You have to think about CG with the hair, and how their clothing moves, how are they floating, what kind of rig we put them on and all that stuff."


Aquaman hits theaters December 21st, 2018.
