The first reactions to Aquaman have arrived – and it is ‘breathtakingly beautiful’

The highly anticipated Aquaman, directed by Australian James Wan, has been screened to a selection of critics and influencers. You won’t be able to read reviews of it for awhile, because they’re all embargoed. The film is also a little while away, arriving in Australian cinemas on Boxing Day.

There’s quite a few social media responses out there, however, from the very pleased people lucky enough to have seen it. Many of them took to Twitter to praise the film, calling it a range of things including “amazing,” “breathtakingly beautiful” and “everything DC fans have been hoping for.”

Here’s a snapshot of what was said.
