When Justice League came out last year, one of the things fans torn apart was a scene in which Jason Momoa's Aquaman spoke to Amber Heard's Mera under the water. For some reason, the two created a bubble of oxygen in which to talk to each other, despite being able to, you know, breathe underwater.
Yes, it was stupid, but the amount of ridicule and backlash it received seems a bit... much.
We're not the only ones who think so either, as Aquaman director James Wan told Entertainment Weekly that "people are overthinking it."
He added that in his upcoming movie about the sea-faring superhero, "They're just gonna talk!".
The publication backed this up, stating that in the 15 minutes of footage they've already seen has the characters just open their mouths and speak while underwater, with a subtle sound wave visual effect being added. Makes sense.
DC and Warner Bros executives have sung the praises of Wan's film, with one saying that it "sets (the DCEU) on the right path" while another said: "The underwater stuff has never been executed like this before."
There's also been positive word already about Aquaman from its first test screenings, even though early screenings of Suicide Squad saw the movie get some high praise too, and we know how that turned out.
Earlier this year, Warner Bros confirmed to Digital Spy that DC's latest outing will be released in the UK on December 14, instead of December 21.
Aquaman is released in cinemas on December 14.
