Directed by James Wan, this is the first solo film featuring Aquaman, who first appeared in Justice League. As expected, the poster went viral on the internet but for all the wrong reasons. The superhero film ended up being compared to other under-sea films, like Finding Nemo and The Little Mermaid and Twitter users struck a goldmine for memes. Some also exploited the opportunity to take a dig at Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Can we talk about that sea turtle on the aquaman poster, the only herbivore featured? Like, swordfish, great white sharks, orcas, and...a sea turtle? "I'm here to kick ass and chew seagrass, and I'm all out of seagrass!" I hope his backstory is explained in the movie! pic.twitter.com/Km4oEsuj7s - Dr. David Shiffman (@WhySharksMatter) July 17, 2018
As bad as the Aquaman poster is, I still stand firm that this Spiderman Homecoming one is the worst out of any super hero movie pic.twitter.com/04WTK8Xe8l - uricksaladbar (@uricksaladbar) July 18, 2018
I saw somebody say the other day that the Aquaman poster is the worst Comic Book film poster. Let me just remind you this exists Of all the creative things you could do on a Spider-Man poster, this is the design that everyone said "Yes" to♂️ pic.twitter.com/8z7dp2YrOx - terrellegrahamreviews.com (@TerrelleGraham) July 18, 2018
