A few months leading up to WonderCon, rumours began circulating that Warner Bros. would be releasing a trailer for James Wan's Aquaman during the convention. However, when this didn't prove to be the case, more rumours surfaced stating that Warner Bros. had pulled the trailer from their schedule due to concerns over possible fan backlash.
Now, director James Wan has taken to social media to set the record straight regarding the Aquaman trailer and, in a classic case of check your sources, has revealed that there were never any plans in place to unveil a trailer for the film at WonderCon.
Check out Wan's response posted below...
Hey friends, I usually do my best to avoid internet noises (especially fabricated distractions) but a teaser-trailer going out this weekend was never in the books — despite what some claim. It’s not because of anyone or any nefarious reason holding it back — IT’S ME. (1/3)— James Wan (@creepypuppet) March 25, 2018
I am simply not ready yet to share. 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. (2/3)— James Wan (@creepypuppet) March 25, 2018
I know it seems like nothing much is brewing above the surface, but I can assure you, we’re working nonstop under the waves 🌊 😉 (3/3)— James Wan (@creepypuppet) March 25, 2018
(Ps: And yes, I plan to use oceanic puns/references every chance I get 😂)
So, there you have it, Infinite Earths fans!
Not only was there never any official plans in place to unveil an Aquaman trailer at WonderCon this weekend, but it doesn't even sound as though it's done yet. And so, fans across the globe must sit and wait a little longer to get their first look at Wan's swashbuckling adventure.
But, as the old saying goes, good things come to those who wait!
WonderCon continues this weekend in Anaheim, California.
Aquaman swims into theaters on December 21st.
