Zack Snyder reveals first peek at 'Aquaman' starring Jason Momoa

Jason Momoa arrived for the European Premiere of “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” at Odeon Leicester Square on March 22, 2016 in London, England.

Director Zach Snyder gave a sneak peek of a scene in "Aquaman." The director revealed the clip on social media via Twitter.

The images in the short clip reveal what the underwater world in "Aquaman" film looks like. It comes courtesy of visual effects screening. Fans said it resembles a scene that is expected to be part of Aquaman's journey towards "Justice League."

While it is yet to be confirmed whether the location of the clip is set in Atlantis, it is safe to bet that is the underwater city itself. There were a few stone columns covered in coral reef and vegetation and guards that look like statues. This implies that based on the location and the figure seated on the throne, the scene is actually a ceremonial one, Screen Rant reported.  

In the comic books, Aquaman also known as Arthur Curry and Orin is the superhero ruler of the seas. His abilities include super-strength, durability, super-speed and telepathy. Despite his aquatic nature, he is capable of staying on land for extended periods.

The character is known for wielding the trident and the armor. Despite being ready to fight, he is reluctant about leading the city.

In an interview with Digital Trends, Jason Momoa has teased that one of the most exciting aspects of "Aquaman" will be the exploration of Atlantis. He went to concede that such fact may not be really explored in "Justice League."

 "I read the ("Aquaman") script and let me just put it this way, I've never seen a movie that's anything like this. It's going to be a world that you've never seen before, which is really cool," he said.

Momoa also teased that the movie will have a "cool spin" on what is underwater. He also let it slip that fans will see his character in different worlds. The character is set to debut on Nov. 17, 2017 on "Justice League" while the "Aquaman" solo film is set for release on Oct. 5, 2018. Watch the video below for more details:
