Aquaman Appears for the DC Movies

The first image for DC Cinema’s Aquaman, being played by Jason Momoa, has appeared on Zack Snyder’s Twitter feed. Check out the new King of the Seven Seas!


Jason Momoa, who is perhaps most recognisable as Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones, is looking especially bad ass in this image. This isn’t the orange and green clad Aquaman many would be familiar with. It looks like the costume draws upon his look from the 90s.

Aquaman is a character who has been much maligned, mostly due to his portrayal in the Silver Age of comic history. However, Jason Momoa definitely looks like he is going to bring the character back to the attention of popular culture.

Of particular note are the Polynesian style tattoos he is sporting. Having Atlantis based upon Polynesian culture is an interpretation we haven’t really seen before and should mean we will get to explore a fascinating society when it appears on the big screen.

Jason Momoa’s Aquaman will be making his first appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. What do you think of him?
