Imagine going to see Aquaman at a special fan screening, and then having the underwater superhero show up in the flesh. That is exactly what happened this weekend at a sneak peek of the DC adventure, which is in theaters starting December 21. Last Night, Jason Momoa stopped by Time Square before surprising everyone who had settled into see an advanced screening of Aquaman.
Photos show Jason Momoa standing in the heart of Times Square, wielding his soon-to-be-iconic Trident in front of unexacting crowds. This is Times Square in New York, however, so the locals are no strangers to strange goings on in the City. Though some were quite taken aback by the DC superhero's sudden appearance in the street.
Jason Momoa was later greeted by the cast and crew of director James Wan's underwater epic inside the theater. Momoa and Wan reunited, along with stars Willem Dafoe, Amber Heard, and Patrick Wilson. The screening is said to have been a huge success. And it looks like DC and Warner Bros. could have a bigger hit than Wonder Woman on their hands.
From Warner Bros.
