This. This is going to change the way DC Comics fans see Aquaman forever.
You see, nobody can really take Aquaman seriously on print because of his green stretch pants, a tunic made of fish scales, and bleach blonde hair. Although illustrators have vastly improved his image over the year, it’s still a little difficult to not have the earlier image of the not-so-macho undersea warrior etched in our minds. These days, he appears a hulking, aged King of Atlantis, wielding a triton twice his size and hangs ten on tidal waves.
But he’s still wearing green pants.
However, that’s all going to be switched up (for the better) real quick in the upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” movie because director Zack Snyder will bring Aquaman to the silver screens for the first time ever. In case you didn’t know, former “Game of Thrones” star Jason Momoa was cast in the role last year.

As seen in the picture above, Zack Snyder’s version of the marine is enhanced with lots of fierce brawn. Aquaman’s orange scales have been replaced with body armour whereas his green pants have been thrown out and in its place, dark green pants. We also noticed that there might or might not be scale tattoos.
Ooh. But honestly, doesn’t he look like an Aquaman-upped version of Khal Drogo? No, really, think about it.
Feel free to discuss that in the comments box below.
And just in case you were wondering that the “#unitetheseven” hashtag is all about, it represents the members of the Justice League. They are:
- Aquaman (Jason Momoa)
- Batman (Ben Affleck)
- Superman (Henry Cavill)
- Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot)
- The Flash (Ezra Miller)
- Cyborg (Ray Fisher)
- Green Lantern (not yet cast)
Meanwhile, word on the street is that Aquaman might also debut with his own solo film as Warner Bros has revealed that there are 10 new films currently in development for the DC Cinematic Universe.
