Jason Momoa's Aquaman, as seen here in Justice League, will likely have its big feature debut at San Diego Comic-Con this week.

Warner Bros.

Aquaman director James Wan is nearly ready to make a big splash at San Diego Comic-Con this week.

Late Sunday, Wan tweeted a peek at the trailer for his DC movie, which will star Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman.

The tweet shows a figure holding a trident, and... is that a whale's tail in the background?

Further bolstering Aquaman's connection with whales and sharks is the Aquaman movie poster revealed Monday, which shows Curry holding his trident while sharks, dolphins and whales swim behind him. The movie's Twitter account also confirms the film's trailer will debut Saturday.

Aquaman is expected to be featured during the Warner Bros./DC Entertainment Hall H panel Saturday at Comic-Con. The panel is also expected to feature Warner Bros' Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. DC's Shazam and Wonder Woman 1984 might also be referenced or even shown off during the presentation.

Aquaman is scheduled to release on Dec. 14 in the UK, Dec. 21 in the US and Dec. 26 in Australia. The movie also stars Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko and Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna.
