Aquaman is one of the most ridiculed superheroes of all time, but comic book fans would know that the undersea warrior is more than just a superhero with the ability to communicate with aquatic life.
Not only did he form Justice League, he also married one of the most powerful female superheroes, Mera.
Mera is the love interest of Aquaman who eventually becomes the Queen of Atlantis. Created by Jack Miller and Nick Cardy, the character was once the undersea queen in an alien otherworldly dimension commonly referred to as “Dimension Aqua”. She possesses a limited degree of telepathy and the ability to control the density of water.
First appeared in “Aquaman” #11 in September 1963, she is shown to be fleeing Leron, a criminal who seized control of her kingdom. She arrives on Earth and meets Aquaman and Aqualad, who vow to help her. However, Leron manages to capture both Aquaman and Mera, imprisoning them in Dimension Aqua.
With the help of a water spirit known as Quisp, Aquaman manages to free Mera and defeats Leron. Mera abdicates the throne of Xebel to Queen V’lana, and returns to Atlantis to marry Aquaman. Soon after, they had a son named Arthur Curry, Jr., also known as Aquababy.
She will star opposite “Game of Thrones” actor Jason Momoa, who is attached to portray the titular character of the “Aquaman” standalone movie. Momoa’s character is described as a “reluctant ruler of Atlantis caught between land dwellers that are always polluting the globe and his own people who are ready to invade the surface”.
He will will be first introduced in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice“,
James Wan is attached to helm “Aquaman”, which is currently undergoing a dual-track development.
Kurt Johnstad, who is known for his work on 2014’s “300 – The Rise Of An Empire”, penned the first draft of the script while David Leslie Johnson, who is best known for his work on “Orphan”, is penning a separate screenplay. Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, and Zack Snyder are serving as producers.
