A new TV spot of the upcoming film “Aquaman” has been released online. The trailer shows Queen Atlanna’s (Nicole Kidman) hope that one day her son will unite the surface world and Atlantis. The video also shows Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) in a green and golden armour that the character is famous for in the comic books.

Arthur will become famous after his actions get exposed in the news, the new TV spot on YouTube shows. The incident will also attract some unwanted attention for the character in a pub. That incident appears to be the one involving a submarine that the trailers have teased.

While Arthur may be using his powers do some good in the world, his real destiny lies elsewhere. His mother, Queen Atlanna wants him to be the bridge between the surface world and the ocean world.

Arthur’s destiny is particularly significant, as he will become aware of it after his half-brother plans to wage war against the surface world if he becomes king.

The trailer also gives the fans a few shots of the beautiful underwater kingdom. While Arthur has spent most of his life on the surface world, he will get a chance to visit his home world at some point in the movie.

The main plot revolves around Arthur inheriting the powers to become a king after he goes in search of a legendary trident. This trident appears to give the character his golden armour too, as he emerges to be more than a king- a hero for both worlds.

There will be villains to fight before Arthur can bring peace. Apart from a fight for the throne against his half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson), he will also have to fight the mercenary Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II).

“Aquaman” has been directed by James Wan. The film is set to be released on Dec. 13 in Australia.
