I would put money on this being awful right now. I mean I wish it wasn't the case. In theory I like this direction for Aquaman. But the CGI world looks so false, the premise looks forced, some costumes and effects are cool, but overall based on the fact that they have not made a good movie yet, nothing about this trailer suggest that they're about to turn that around.
My friend just messaged me to say how into the show he is and he's not as comic crazy as any one who posts here. I take him as a guy with good taste who's out in the world and I think the critics/haters are way off on this. Mind you, I enjoyed it as well, but thought maybe cause of my love of comic stuff but then I've seen plenty of awful comic adaptations in live action. This wasn't one of them.
I listened to a podcast that explained why people who thought pizza gate is real did so and the logic is fucking bonkers as you'd expect. One reason they mentioned was the owner's name sounds vaguely like "I love children" in Italian or French. I mean that's like they expect the real world to be like comic books. Bunch of fucking Edward E. Nigmas running around with names like their obsessions right?
