Zack Snyder's Justice League is now under two weeks away with the U.S. release set for March 18 on HBO Max.

In recent days, Snyder has heavily ramped up marketing for the film by releasing several new teasers and posters that highlight Batman and Superman .

The director seems to be continuing to follow the pattern of a new release daily as the streaming premiere moves ever closer, with today's tease showing off Aquaman.


Justice League director Zack Snyder has revealed a teaser for his new four-hour cut highlighting the role of Jason Mamoa's Aquaman in the film.

The teaser shows a montage of clips of Aquaman in Justice League , accompanied by a series of quotes relating to the character from various DC heroes and villains:

Vulko: "You can't turn your back to the world forever. Above or below."

Wonder Woman: "Thousands of years since our people spoke."

Mera: "The first born of beloved queen, Atlanna."

Bruce Wayne: "I need warriors."

Steppenwolf: "You can't escape."

Vulko: "The time has come. Take up your mother's trident."

Arthur Curry: "This is a bad idea."

Additionally, the former DC filmmaker has released a new poster that highlights the King of Atlantis in spectacular fashion.

After years of social media campaigning, DC fans will finally get to see Snyder's intended cut of his superhero team-up in just twelve days' time. Aquaman fans can look forward to more of the Atlantean hero who hasn't been seen on-screen since his solo film debuted in theaters in December 2018.

The character is set to return in a sequel to his hit standalone adventure in December 2022 with a horror spin-off titled The Trench in the works under director James Wan.

Justice League marked the character's original debut in the DCEU — aside from a brief cameo in Batman V Superman — meaning viewers can expect the new cut to further expand on the hero's original introduction.

Zack Snyder's Justice League will debut March 18 on HBO Max.
