One of the many annoying sequences that Zack Snyder put into ‘Justice League’ was when Amber Heard‘s Mera and Jason Momoa‘s Arthur Curry had an underwater conversation inside a giant air bubble that they created. Thankfully, that isn’t going to happen in ‘Aquaman‘. Last year, director James Wan had stated that “Fret not, no “air bubbles for dialogue” in my underwater world” and he is sticking to that promise.
According to Entertainment Weekly who had a chance to check out 15-minutes of the new film, no giant air bubbles were seen with conversations under water. So how will all of these underwater heroes, villains, and citizens be communicating?
According to Wan:
“People are overthinking it. They’re just gonna talk!”
Fans were quite verbal about Atlanteans not needing air to talk and moviegoers, in general, seemed to agree that the added work that went into the scene was completely unnecessary. The only thing Wan ended up doing was add a few visual effects when any Atlanteans spoke which likely would seem to represent sound waves.
I’m glad Wan decided that dialogue was not one of the areas which needed to have a huge impact. I can’t even imagine how much it would slow down the film if they needed a place with air available every time the cast needed to talk to one another.
Are you happy to hear that we won’t be seeing every other scene interrupted by having to make an underwater pocket of air to say anything? Did Zack Snyder not think his method through or did he just feel the visual effects he used were cool enough to shoehorn in? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
