After years of development, Aquaman is finally hitting the big screen and director James Wan says he's gearing up to give the world something "super cool."

ET's Ashley Crossan caught up with Wan at the Australians in Film Awards Gala at NeueHouse in Hollywood on Wednesday, where the celebrated Furious 7 director was honored with the Fox Studios Australia International Award and gave fans a little tease at what tone his Aquaman movie is going have.

"I kind of don't want to give too much away but know this: The spirit that I'm going for is like a classic sort of swashbuckling action adventure, sort of high seas adventure story," Wan shared. "It's ultimately a quest story in the spirit of Raiders of the Lost Ark meets Romancing the Stone."

While fans are going to have to wait until July 2018 to see Aquaman’s stand-alone adventure, Jason Momoa, who stars as the eponymous Atlantean, will appear alongside Ben Affleck's Batman, Henry Cavill's Superman, Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller's The Flash and Ray Fisher's Cyborg in the upcoming Justice League movie.

Amber Heard will also being joining in on the festivities as Mera, the queen of Atlantis. Last week, Justice League director Zack Snyder gave fans a look at Mera's "hydrokinetic" outfit.

"I think Amber and Jason Momoa, in their moments in Justice League, [are] going to give the rest of the world a flavor of what their own standalone movie could be," Wan explained. "And that is just scratching the surface of what I plan to do."

Fans will get a chance to see Momoa bring Aquaman to life for the first time when Justice League hits theaters Nov. 17, 2017.
