Aquaman: The Trench by Andrew Milito (based on characters from DC Comics)

Part seven of Volume II of my DC cinematic universe “rebirth” series.

All is well for Arthur Curry in Atlantis. As the King of Atlantis, he's settled down with Mera, now Queen of Atlantis, had a child, and has strengthened his once strained relationship with his brother Orm. Peace can only last for so long, however: a mysterious foe emerges from the shadows of the ocean, with eyes set on undoing a past wrong tied to Arthur's past. Armed with a scepter capable of controlling a powerful army hailing from the deepest trenches of the ocean, this mysterious villain, known as the Black Manta, attacks Atlantis, and Arthur, in a vicious game of revenge.

Main inspirations: “Death of a Prince”.

Rated PG-13 for epic battle sequences and scary images.
