Aquaman Movie: 5 early Twitter reactions to new DC film

There's early feedback coming in for the next solo superhero film in the DC Universe.

DC's next superhero flick, "Aquaman," arrives in theaters in late December. However, some lucky individuals have been able to see an early screening of the under and above water fantasy adventure film. Below are five of the reactions that have popped up on Twitter so far (minus spoilers).


Praise for unique origin film

"Aquaman" will give fans, old and new, a look at the origin of the classic DC comic book character. Brandon Davis praised director James Wan for the way in which he crafted the tale and Jason Mamoa for his portrayal of the iconic hero.


"Big, creative, and crazy"

One viewer allowed the visuals and overall effects, along with the story, to sink in for about a week. Mike Rogeau said he'll need a repeat viewing, based on how "insane" this movie gets.


Another future repeat viewer

Count Jenna Busch as one of those people who will be heading out to see this epic superhero film again. Busch praised Momoa's charm and the "spectacular visuals." She called it "Exactly what I was hoping for." That's quite a recommendation for those who may have been on the fence about seeing it.


All hail Momoa's Aquaman!

Nick Kazden was also engaged in the film, thanks to its lead actor's charismatic performance. While Momoa was in "Justice League," and had some key moments, he truly makes this his film. Kazden loved the film's "fun fantasy vibe."


Comparable to a Marvel movie

A lot has been made over the years in regard to DC's failing to match Marvel. Several of the Twitter reactions note that this feels close to how Marvel movies are. That may be a good sign for DC at the box office. In addition, Slash Film editor Peter Sciretta praises the movie's villain, Black Manta.
