DC has a bit of making up to do. While Wonder Woman brought them a good deal of good faith, Justice League seems to have completely erased it. This has put a great deal of pressure on Aquaman, a film that stars a hero many have almost zero familiarity with, outside of the old Super Friends cartoon. There’s a lot riding on this, and with that in mind, it’s no surprise that we have yet to see a trailer for the film, which is set to hit theaters this December.
For the past few months, audiences have been hungry to for the new trailer for the flick, with some seeing its absence as a bad sign. However, with a slew of new details hitting for the film last week, and rumors of the trailer hitting fairly soon, we’ve all been sitting and waiting, expecting it at any moment. Well, not so fast. It looks like we may need to hang on for another solid month or so, as director James Wan revealed via Twitter.

As you can see, in addition to giving us an idea of when to expect the trailer, he also gave us a shiny new logo for the film. While it’s not entirely different from the one revealed a couple years back, it sports a glossier, more water-friendly color scheme, which makes perfect sense.
Now, how do we feel about the trailer release date? Honestly, it makes sense. San Diego Comic-Con is the place where some of the biggest geektastic news drops, so it’s fitting that one of this year’s biggest films would have a reveal there. Plus, given how much is riding on this, it gives the studio an extra bit of time to really polish the trailer.
The real question I have is whether or not we’ll be seeing any footage from Shazam! God bless Aquaman, but Shazam! seems to be the real potential game-changer for DC here.
