Aquaman’s director takes to Twitter to quell trailer rumors

“I am simply not ready yet to share,” says Wan

This weeked, Aquaman director James Wan set the record straight on the upcoming blockbuster’s trailer: It won’t be dropping soon.

Late last week, fans of Warner Bros. DC Comics cinematic universe — or at least a section of them — took a brief respite from the Snyder Cut conspiracy to follow a different one entirely. Rumor had it that Warner Bros. would release the first teaser for Aquaman during Anaheim’s WonderCon convention this weekend. Apparently things got buzzy enough that Wan decided to step in.

“I am simply not ready yet to share,” Wan continued in his next (unthreaded) tweet. “This movie is filled to the gills with VFX, and the process is as slow and laborious as a sea-slug! Yes, even shots for the trailers take forever to do, and I refuse to put out anything that might be construed as subpar.”

He capped off the “thread” with a final tweet, complete with an aquatic emoji:

This marks the second time that Wan has cleared the air around Aquaman trailer rumors, after claims were made that it was imminent in February. The movie isn’t due to hit theaters until Dec. 18, 2018, so it’s not especially unusual that we wouldn’t have seen a trailer until now.
