‘Aquaman’ gets criticism from fans in Japan

Glamovie.com – As the only DCEU film released in 2018, of course Warner Bros. and DC Films want to make “Aquaman” the opening of success for other projects. That is “Shazam!”, And “Wonder Woman 1984” which will be released in 2019.

As the release time approaches, of course the studio is more incentive to distribute promos to attract fans’ enthusiasm. However, the international poster promos that have just been shared by Warner Bros. have received criticism from fans in Japan.

Reported by Heroic Hollywood on Monday (10/9), fans of “Aquaman” in Japan claimed to be disappointed after seeing this poster. In addition to slightly different images, this poster also has a tagline that is considered ridiculous.

Warner Bros. Japanese modification of this poster is a slightly brighter color and some fish images are removed, and are equipped with a tagline written in Japanese.

If translated, the tagline means,

“The man who be friends all the fish”


“The man who makes all fish allies”.

This caused fans to criticize and protest the studio by comparing it to Pixar’s “Finding Nemo” promo poster.

Actually modifications and differences in international promos from a film are normal. Even in some countries there are differences in titles that are quite odd. But the case that occurred in the Japanese version of “Aquaman” is considered unnatural by some of its fans.

“Aquaman” will focus on telling the throne of the throne in the Kingdom of Atlantis between Aquaman aka Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) with his half-brother, Orm Marius (Patrick Wilson).

Aquaman was also given an obligation by Lady Mera (Amber Heard) to avoid the appearance of conflicts between the inhabitants of the sea and the people who live on the surface.

Aquaman’s journey to become a King in the Kingdom of Atlantis will be the outline of the film’s story.

As time went by, he had to face various external challenges such as Orm’s “rebellion” and the struggle of himself who still had human blood.

Moreover Orm also intends to attack the human world with the help of Black Manta.

Arthur and Lady Mera must find the Trident weapon of the true King of Atlantis to stop the chaos that Orm caused.

This film presents acting from other famous actors and actresses. Namely Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, Temuera Morrison as Aquaman’s father, Djimon Hounsou as Fisherman King, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, and Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus.

The plan, this film will be released in the UK on 14 December. (Glamovie).
