Warner Bros. Pictures’ Aquaman, directed by James Wan and starring Jason Momoa, Amber Heard and Patrick Wilson, is only a few months away. With that said it is obvious that the studio will begin to heavily promote the film. Especially with the competition from Bumblebee and the PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2. One of their promotions will come in November during the DC comics event Drowned Earth that will take place in the pages of Justice League as well as Aquaman, where each of the books will have a Aquaman variant cover inspired by the film.
Here is a quick synopsis of the event provided by DC Comics:

Together they’ll pit the League against a race of ancient and long-forgotten sea gods and an army of alien mercenaries, reveal shocking secrets about Arthur’s legacy, and thwart a plot to flood the planet and turn people into aquatic monsters in JUSTICE LEAGUE/AQUAMAN: DROWNED EARTH.”
