USA Today has released their top 10 most anticipated movies for 2018, and making the list was Aquaman. Included in their story was an intense new photo of Jason Momoa in the movie. Batman News has obtained a hi-res copy, you can check it out above.

USA Today also got some new quotes from Aquaman director James Wan. Check them out below.

Justice League only dipped into the expansive undersea potential for Jason Momoa’s superhero, and director James Wan follows the epic ensemble with a solo film where Arthur Curry is caught between the surface and the watery kingdom of Atlantis. “He doesn’t quite fit in, but as the story progresses, he realizes he’s the best of both worlds,” says the filmmaker. “Circumstances allow him to grow as a human being and then realize the bigger picture of it all and what it means to have these abilities.” Designing Atlantis has given Wan a chance to “make something that is from our planet but at the same time, it’s a visual we’re not familiar with,” and he’s also unleashing some seriously bad guys. Chief among them: Aquaman’s archvillain Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II), whose antagonism “is very primal, that classic revenge story,” Wan adds. “I love the simplicity of that human drive.”

Aquaman hits theaters on December 21, 2018.
