San Diego Comic Con has come and gone, and boy that weekend that passed by was one of the wildest yet since the event came to prominence because of superhero movies. DC and Warner Bros. didn’t fail to disappoint fans with two movie previews, one being Aquaman starring Jason Momoa.
We already have info down on the upcoming LEGO DC Super Heroes Aquaman: Black Manta Strike (76095) set that directly ties in to the said movie (featuring a Momoa-as-Aquaman minifigure), but that apparently wasn’t the only place we’d find the Hawaiian actor where LEGO’s involved. We’ll be hearing him reprising his role in an eagerly-awaited film.
We know The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is coming out next year. Some little teasers shown by the Warner-DC panel in SDCC’s “hallowed” Hall H last Saturday (July 21) apparently tip off the fact that a LEGO Aquaman will be among the loads of characters present, and he’ll be voiced by Jason Momoa.
The DC superhero minifigures in the LEGO movie sequel already have some notable stars voicing them like Will Arnett as LEGO Batman, and Channing Tatum as the voice behind LEGO Superman. But Warner-DC seems to be trying to pull some performer synergy with the DC Extended Universe with the Momoa casting for LEGO Aquaman. Even Suicide Squad’s Margot Robbie is taking over from The LEGO Batman Movie’s Jenny Slate in voicing for LEGO Harley Quinn.
Aquaman of the DCEU premieres on December 21, but already the iconic underwater hero who can talk to fish has been getting plenty of love at SDCC 2018. There was also a brick-built LEGO statue of him (portrayed by Jason Momoa, naturally) on display there, while the LEGO Super Heroes Aquaman: Black Manta Strike (76095) arrives August 1.
As a parting treat, here’s Aquaman’s first official trailer.
