New posters for Aquaman have dropped and there is so much goodness to digest.

Aquaman is out in cinemas next month, just in time for Christmas, when Jason Momoa will finally make his standalone debut as Aquaman in Jason Wans film.

The extended trailer was released last month and now the new promotional shots may just fix a few withdrawal symptoms for DC fans.

Nicole Kidman and Amber Heard are featured in a series of new posters with Nicole posing as Aquamans mother Queen Atlanna in the motion picture.

Meanwhile Amber poses as Princess Mera, the love interest of Jason Momoas titular character, in the forthcoming comic book film.

The most recent trailer opens with Aquaman aka Arthur Curry, discussing his parents whom he says were from different worlds, adding: I was the product of a love that never should have been.

As the son of a human lighthouse keeper and an Atlantean queen, Arthur is the rightful heir to the throne. Or as its so eloquently put in the teaser: A son of the land and a son of the seas.

This leads him to embark on a mission with Mera to unite the kingdoms of Atlantis.
