'Aquaman' director James Wan arrived in Beijing on Sunday evening, promoting this newest DC Comics standalone movie.
Wan said "This is my first trip to China. I'm sorry to take so long to come back to my ancestral land. But I'm super happy to be here and it's pretty amazing. And I cannot be more excited to be here actually, with a film that I'm super proud of and to share with all you guys."

Chinese moviegoers will get to see The King of Atlantis' first solo adventure on December 7, a full two weeks before fans in the U.S.
The movie's stars are in Beijing with the director.
"I love you, China. Thanks for having us. Super pumped to be here! I'm excited for you guys- you, guys, go to see it before the whole world. Dec. 7, you guys get to see anything before anyone," said Jason Momoa.
Momoa portrays the titular future ruler of Atlantis. 'Aquaman' was first introduced as a comic-book character in 1941. In this upcoming film, half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the throne of Atlantis, and must overcome his reluctance in order to step forward and lead his people.
