Fans have well over a year to wait before Aquaman hits theaters, but a new photo is giving fans a first look at Ocean Master, Atlanna, and more.
In the photo, which surfaced on Twitter today, featured what appeared to be a production crew member on Aquaman wearing a t-shirt that featured various characters for the upcoming film in graphic form. You can check out the image below.

The shows what appears to be Orm the Ocean Master, a sea mutant, Mera, Aquaman, Queen Atlanna, and another sea mutant. One sharp-eyed fan in the DC Cinematic community on Reddit specifically noted that the last sea mutant-type creature may be one of the Trench, potentially hinting at plot points for the Aquaman film.
In DC Comics' New 52 relaunch, “Aquaman: The Trench: was the first story-arc for the Aquaman series. In the arc, the Trench were introduced as a new, carnivorous race that has devastated a small harbor. As the story progresses Aquaman discovers that The Trench are actually a dying species but are too great a threat to be allowed to survive.
While “Aquaman: The Trench” sounds like a grim story to explore other fans were particularly interested in the other "sea mutant” on the shirt. Some fans noticed that the creature looked less like a mutant and more like Black Manta. Black Manta being featured on the shirt makes a lot of sense, considering that we already know that the villainous Black Manta will appear in the film, played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
The shirt isn't the only look fans got of Aquaman today, however. With the Justice League hitting theaters next month, the Aquaman first-look trailer was released today giving fans an introduction to the character.
Aquaman is set to open in theaters December 21, 2018. Fans can get a look at Aquaman well before then when Justice League opens in theaters on November 17, 2017.
