One of the best scenes from Warner Bros. Aquaman was undoubtedly the introduction of the ferocious Trench. The nightmarish sea creatures are now reportedly getting their own spin-off.
The film will not feature any of the cast from Aquaman but will be set in the Trench. The Trench first appeared in Aquaman (vol. 7) #1 (Nov. 2011) and were created by Geoff Johns. In September 2011, The New 52 had rebooted DC’s continuity. Johns introduced the Trench into this new timeline, making them antagonists in the Aquaman series.
In their first appearance, the Trench are seen attacking a town and killing, eating, and destroying many of the inhabitants.
It is revealed that the Trench had been inhabitants of Atlantis before that continent was destroyed and submerged by Atlan, the Dead King. Only three major groups of old Atlantis survived that event, including Aquaman’s Atlanteans (the main group to continue in Atlantis), the Xebelians in the Bermuda Triangle, and the Trench, who were thrown deep into the Marianas Trench, where they adapted traits and powers, as well as appearance, that differed from the Atlanteans.
