Through Twitter, began to emerge the first reactions of the film of Aquaman, probably the most anticipated film of December and the unique project of superheroes that Warner Bros. will premiere this year.
Create a character page for: James Wan (Saw, The Spell, Fast and Furious 7), the film will hit theaters in December after the failure of Justice League but will seek to demonstrate that DC characters are not lost and still have a lot to say on the big screen.
In that vein, the first reactions are very positive, as they all focus on the positive aspects that would include the direction of Wan, the interpretation of Jason Momoa and the role of the villains in this film.
Check out the first few comments below.
Erik Davis of Fandango. "Aquaman is the most ambitious DC film to date. A great and unraveled visual spectacle that is beautiful, crazy and filled with incredible action. It's really fun to watch. James Wan, in my opinion, is the true star, he elevates the material, makes it entertaining and conquers it. "
#Aquaman is the most ambitious DC movie to date – a big, sprawling visual spectacle that is gorgeous, crazy, stuffed with terrific action, and a lot of fun to watch. James Wan, in my opinion, is the true star – he elevates the material, makes it entertaining and conquers it. pic.twitter.com/gDFjiAWICA

Umberto Gonzalez The Wrap: "Aquaman is amazing and absolutely fulfills. Not only is Jason Momoa the king of Atlantos, but he is also the new crowned king of the DCEU. I can not wait to see her again. "

Brandon Davis of ComicBook: "Aquaman is great. James Wan made a really unique superhero movie, usually crossing the territory of epic fantasy, but landed on the family and discovery. The world is visually amazing. Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry is totally rude. Yahya Abdul-Mateen and Patrick Wilson stand out".
#Aquaman is great James Wan made a really unique super hero origin film, often crossing into fantasy-epic territory, but grounded in family and discovery.

Eric Eisenberg of Cinemablend: "I'm excited to say how much I really enjoyed Aquaman. It's a fun adventure built on tremendous action sequences, with a great hero arc and Jason Momoa acting as the glue that unites him. There is a fun world outfit and it looks great. It's a big step for the DCEU. "
Excited I can now say how much I enjoyed #Aquaman! It's a cool adventure built on some tremendous action sequences and set pieces, with a great hero arc / performance from Jason Momoa as the glue. There's fun world building, and it looks wonderful. A great step for the DCEU. pic.twitter.com/Z5iPdilMIR

Mike Rougeau of Gamespot: "I saw Aquaman before Thanksgiving and had a week to think about it. It is unsuccessful, but entertaining. Momoa and Patrick Wilson are absolute gems. Above all, the film is full of insane. I can not believe how big, creative and crazy it gets. I'll have to see it again! "

Peter Sciretta by Slash Film. "Aquaman is better than expected. It feels like a Marvel Phase 1 movie, in a good way. It is best when you have fun and do not take yourself too seriously. Black Manta is a great villain that comic book fans are going to love. It has some spectacular unique shots and good action. The battle of the third act does not become the typical trap of a comic book and is surprisingly ambitious. A lot of aspects I did not like probably can be traced to decisions that Snyder made and were inherited by Wan (Casting, Chemistry between Heard and Momoa). "
Third act battle that does not return to the typical comic book movie blah trap, and is surprisingly ambitious. A lot of the aspects I did not like could be traced back to decisions Snyder made that were inherited by Wan (casting, chemistry between Heard / Mamoa … etc).

Germain Lussier de IO9. "Aquaman is a big, crazy and fun trip. It is blatantly melodramatic and exaggerated with the most ambitious sense of scale imaginable. Parts of these are rather bad but they are not the majority and they fit with the caricature tone. It's the second best DCU movie. "
Aquaman is a big, fun, wild ride. It's unabashedly melodramatic and over the top with the largest, most ambitious sense of scale imaginable. Parts of it are kind of bad but they are not the majority and, oddly, still fit in with the cartoony tone. 2nd best DCU movie. YEEEAAHH! pic.twitter.com/3GLlK3uQJ3

Den of Geek: "Aquaman is a fun and colorful introduction that embraces the mythology of Atlantis, full of visual invention and ideas but the second part suffers from trying to gather too many things."
#Aquaman: a fun, colorful, mythology-embracing intro to Atlantis, full of visual invention and ideas but second half suffers from trying to cram too much in. Full review on the site soon

Paul Shirey of Joblo: "I loved Aquaman. It is a comic book with everything that implies, great action, emblematic moments and visual spectacle. Momoa does the character of his and Wan honors the traditional aspects, but elevates them for was modern. It's wonderful. "
Short & sweet reaction to #Aquaman I loved it. It's a comic book movie through & through great action, iconic moments & visual spectacle to spare. Momoa makes the character his own & Wan honors the traditional aspects, but elevates it to the modern era. It's a blast.
