Doesn't this reflect his post-Crisis history?  Granted, I'm not sure what Nu52 has done.

I'd say he feels like post-crisis/pre-flashpoint Billy with a bit of Nu52 origin.

Nu52 was a jerk though. He really didn't want to bond with his adopted siblings at all. Here he seems a little reluctant but it looks like he will get over that fast.

New 5 minute trailer:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaWnLiffxJ4&t=3s

They shouldn't have showed so much of the chase scene/Black Manta fight, imo. Same thing with the intro. Hopefully, they're like the MCU and appear to show a lot but really have plenty of more awesome moments in the actual film.

Not sure I'm seeing this opening week, or even in theatres but it doesn't look too bad.

Looks kinda cool.  And I'm surprised they're popping out the yellow/green costume.

Also, I'm confused if this takes place before or after Justice League.

I'm also confused by when this takes place. I think they're retconning Justice League.

What makes everyone think it's before JL or retconning it?

In JL, Aquaman swims to Atlantis as if he's been there before.  Then he shows up with the Trident in his next scene, implying that either Mera gave it to him or he had it stashed somewhere.  This trailer shows that Aquaman has never been to Atlantis and does not have the Trident.  This all implies this movie takes place before JL.

Meanwhile, Aquaman seems to be taking an active role in defending the surface world in the trailer whereas in the beginning of JL, he was just giving fish to one remote town and leaving it at that.  There's also the costume change at the end of this trailer.  If he gets his gold costume at the end of the movie, it's likely this all takes place after the events of JL.

That's why there's confusion.

I don't think they ever called where he went Atlantis in JL. Even if they did I'm pretty sure it's two different places. Also it's not the same trident. It technically wasn't even a trident. It was a five prong weapon. This takes place after JL and is about Them finding the original Atlantis which leads them in search for what I'm guessing is Posiedons trident.

It was Atlantis.  It might be two different parts of Atlantis.  The trailer makes it look like Aquaman knows nothing about Atlantis at all.  Of course, trailers tend to pull that stuff.

That trident was controlling water, so we know it's not just a plain `ol Atlantean trident.  What was it if it wasn't Poseidon's?

We don’t know if that was Atlantis in Justice League (very likely was), but there is seven kingdoms under the sea including Atlantis. Sure he does know about Atlantis as I bet his mom and dad told him about it. Maybe even warmed him not to go

The trident is no different then aquaman’s various tridents in the comics. He has gone through a few different magical ones that having varying powers even in the new 52. Only his current one he has is Poseidon’s but the other magical ones were made by the first king of Atlantis
