Some minor spoilers for Justice League can be found throughout this article. If you haven't caught the flick yet, you've been warned.
If you've seen Justice League, you may already know that the movie spends a brief but important few scenes in Atlantis, with Queen Mera and some of the other Atlanteans. While we get a pretty darn good look at Mera and her abilities, we don't get quite as up close and personal with some of the other Atlanteans. Which is why it's pretty cool this snapshot from the set of the film exists. You can take a closer look at the Atlantean armor, below.
Although the Atlanteans look perfectly comfortable on the set of Justice League, apparently filming in and near the waters in the Icelandic Sea was no joke. Thomas Billings, who is a notable stunt performer and acted as a double for Ray Fisher during Justice League, recently posted the photo to Instagram, which gives us a good look at the armor the Atlanteans displayed. Apparently, Fisher very nearly played a "parademon" in the movie in a scene that seems to have been shot before Zack Snyder left the movie this spring, but the scene was one (of presumably many) that didn't make the final cut of the film.
Of course, there are always Blu-ray release extras to hope for. In the time since Justice League officially hit theaters, many DC fans have come out to request the presumably much lengthier cut of the film Zack Snyder wanted. The director left the project this spring following the death of his daughter to suicide, and Joss Whedon's final version of Justice League was just under two hours in length. Obviously, there is plenty of footage that was cut or changed for the final draft of the film, and there is at least a faction of fans who would like to see more of what was shot.
As for the Atlanteans, luckily we won't have to wait too much longer to see more from the populace on the big screen. Sure, although we will have to wait until next year's holiday season to catch more, Aquaman will be the next big movie that DC will be putting out. So, if you've been excited for more underwater scenes, you'll definitely be getting those, say, before The Flash or Cyborg-based solo movies.
In the meantime, Justice League is still chugging away at the box office, and while the cume for that movie isn't likely going to be as high as the other previous DC ventures, it should still have a couple of more big weekends before some of this holiday's biggest releases take over. Of course, we're talking about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and if you haven't gotten your tickets yet, head here. To take a look at what else is heading to theaters, check out our full movies schedule.
