New Film Discussion: ‘Aquaman’ (2018) Open Thread

Aquaman hits theaters today. The sixth installment in the DC Extended Universe sees James Wan attempt to steer the DCEU back to a more positive buzz after the failure of Justice League. Early reviews teased a fun 1980s adventure vibe, but what did you think?

Where does Aquaman rank with the other DCEU films? Did Jason Momoa make Aquaman cool? How was the villain? Any new characters you definitely want to see return? Will Aquaman fix the DCEU? Do you want to see a sequel?

Synopsis: Arthur Curry, the reluctant ruler of Atlantis and King of the Seven Seas, finds himself caught between a surface world constantly ravaging the sea and Atlanteans looking to lash out in revolt, but committed to protecting the entire globe.
