Aquaman is just one month away from its worldwide release but fans are eagerly waiting for the Atlantian superhero. Well despite being from Atlantis he seems to have a kind of disliking for his own kingdom as it was seen during the events of Justice League movie, last year. And there may be questions regarding this in the minds of curious fans that why did Arthur Curry abandon his own home, Atlantis?
Well, now the question seems to have been answered, in a way, thanks to the Aquaman’s official movie book titled, Arthur’s Guide to Atlantis, which is an in-cannon collection made by Aquaman/Arthur himself when he was 13 years old. You can take a glimpse at it from the Twitter post below.

From the words written above in the Guide Book, it looks like Vulko will play a crucial role in bringing Arthur back to Atlantis. And there, he will fight alongside Mera against King Orm to stop him.
Actor William Dafoe, who plays Vulko, also recently spoke about his role in the film, and some others details too.
Speaking to Total Film, about the character of King Orm, he said that his character (William Dafoe’s) is an advisor to King Orm, while also being a mentor to Aquaman. He further told about a scene from the film that, “You could look at a monitor that was filming in a greenscreen room, with all these elements covered with green fabric and all these reference points, and then you could go to the monitor and see the completed set, but in a rendering that was laid over the live scene. So that was sometimes very helpful. So when you’re on this big object that’s moving around on the gimbal that’s supposed to be a shark – you could actually go to the monitor and see the size of the shark you’re on.”
Directed by James Wan and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, Aquaman also stars actress Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Nicole Kidman as Aquaman’s mother Atlanna, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta.
The movie will release on December 21st, 2018. However, in the UK it will be arriving sooner, on December 14th, 2018.
