Zack Snyder shares first image of Jason Momoa as Aquaman

02.20.2015

Aquaman

Last night director Zack Snyder tweeted the first official image of Game of Thrones' Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and he looks quite badass as "The King of the Seven Seas." Momoa's Aquaman will make his debut in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, and will appear in 2017's THE JUSTICE LEAGUE: PART ONE before getting a solo movie in 2018.

Kneel before your King!

Yup, definitely wouldn't want to be caught tossing trash in the ocean by this guy. The Aquaman pic has a gritty feel to it, similar to the previously released BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE images featuring Bats, Supes and Wonder Woman. Although Aquaman reportedly won't have a big role (maybe even just a cameo), I'm very eager to know exactly what he'll be up to in the Zack Snyder movie. What are your thoughts on this first look at Jason Momoa as Aquaman?

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE opens on March 25, 2016, and AQUAMAN is set to hit theaters on July 27, 2018.

I'm a huge fan of Aquaman, especially his classic look. That being said, this looks great. I've liked Momoa since Stargate: Atlantis (I guess he's coming full circle - lol) and I think he's going to do the character justice. Also, who's to say this is his only look? He may have battle armor that incorporates more of his classic look as well.

Aquaman, now in Samoan flavor.

Also that's not really a trident, more like a... quintadent?

These new DC heroes look more like villains.

This is just trying so hard to make something seem too hip, with a dark gritty anti-hero edge, that it's just obnoxious. All of these heroes in Snyder's new universe are exactly the same character, just with different powers.

I don't mind the more badass armored look. Injustice and other more hard edged presentations of Aquaman have done that. He needs to have some blonde in his hair though. Sun bleached surfer style would be fine but he needs it. His blonde hair was integral to his origin of being thrown out of Atlantis by his father before he finally took the throne himself. Also How about a real trident? He looks like he is holding a fucking farmers hay bailing pitch fork. Other than that I kinda do like the

Most of my friends here in Vegas are native Hawaiians. Most have tattoos very similar. Its nice to see them represented and at least this choice makes sense since Pacific Islanders worship the water.

Apparently Snyder doesn't understand what TRIdent means.

If you asked any good storyteller how to create an interesting character, they would give a long complex in depth answer.

If you asked Zack Snyder he would scream "MUSCLES & THEY GOT TO BE ALL DARK-LIKE CAUSE THAT'S COOL BRO!"

Snyder is like an angsty emo 13 year old version of Michael Bay.

Dude. Aquaman hasn't had a TRIdent for years. Type "New 52 Aquaman" into Google and you get this:

ALSO: Who cares? It's a prop for a movie that he is A) not the star and B) we haven't seen any footage of.

Actually, if you asked any good storyteller what and interesting character is - odds are their answer would be quite short.

Just because the people behind New 52 are complete idiots (not understanding the definition of Trident is only the tip of the iceberg for these morons) is not an excuse. New 52 is some of the worst stories DC has ever done. It's awful. Death of The Family is the ONLY okay thing the come out of the complete clusterfuck that is New 52.

The Seven

I love the look. The tattoos look awesome, as does the armor. I'm just wondering which seven he's meant to unite. The seven seas or the seven JL Members? (Aquaman, Supes, Bats, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash, Green Lantern)

I love this look! And why are people freaking about about "colors"!!??? Don't people know that just like the Batman pic the colors are either toned down or its in black and white. It's called filter people, u idiots use them all the time for your snapchats and instagrams, and people think your a photographer but a high end studio uses them and omg the colors!!?? The horror!!??

Got nothing against the look per se...

Just wondering how they're going to explain the existence of the King of Atlantis and an Amazonian warrior goddess, while balancing a superhuman alien and a crime fighting billionaire. Not enough movie to do all that properly. I think WB is making the mistake Sony did with Spiderman IMO.

I think they can easily do it, with someone like Chris Terrio writing the script I see no problems with them introducing these characters in BvS, especially if they are just cameos to set up JL.. Honestly I think Man of Steel laid the foundation of this world and you will see that in BvS. I was a little hesitant too but I have faith yo.

it's doable. in fact, it's been done. there are some really good animated justice league movies out there that fit everything nicely into a 2 hour runtime. and though none of the DCAU guys are on this, it's doable.

The focus seems on the 3, so I doubt that Aquaman is little more than a cameo for BVS.

No surprise here. They manage to make Aquaman feel like Batman. The King of Atalantis now looks like a Polynesian islander. They are so lazy and pay no attention to detail, if they even care at all, that they can't even get their Oceans right (Polynesia is in the Pacific Ocean fyi).
From what I've seen, which is probably a lot more than most people on here as at my job we have been doing some work on this movie, well, all I'll say is, if you like doom and gloom and angry people and you enjoyed

Love the look

The fact they'll included Momoa's tattoos in a way that looks natural for the character is a big plus. Aquaman was my biggest concern for the Justice League but so far, those concerns have been lowered.

I think the biggest concern should be Flash. He is going to have to be spectacular because he's the only character with a hint of humor. There is a lot to like about this style, but it could all go epically bad as well.

Where's Arnie?

Besides the fact that he looks like a Predator, all in all it fits the DC look and feel and I'm curious to see him in live action for the first time.

Why does everything have to ripoff Dark Knight

DC movies like Man of Shit fail because they take themselves too seriously (while you can argue Marvel isn't serious enough). I am really worried about this rushed direction they are taking these characters as they seem to be skipping a few beats before making the Justice League movie. Introducing 10 characters in a movie called Batman vs Superman seems like a horrible idea. It is too much at once and I bet none of the characters will be fleshed out.

$668,045,518 Worldwide box office is hardly failing. Just because you didn't care for it doesn't mean the film was a failure. And DC Comics are dark, that's why I have always loved them. Marvel is more kid friendly and funny, it works for them. DC is dark and more serious. We can have both ya know. Comic films that are family friendly and comic films aimed for adult and teens.

The latter was actually my first thought, that it would bring together the seven big members of the Justice League. Speaking of which, I think it's foolish for Warner/DC to ignore the TV properties. I'm sure fans would love to see Arrow and Flash up there with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman.

While a part of me still wants Arthur to be blonde, it wouldn't have looked good on Momoa. This works great; love the detail of his shoulder armour being etched with a shark's teeth design.

I like it, the long hair Aquaman was my favourite. I also like how they managed to work with Momoa's tattoos. Snyder does like his filters (though you can see some color).

Can't wait to see the rest of the JL, Flash, Green Lantern and Cyborg still not shown yet (or cast in regards to GL)

Hoped for a little more Aquaman and less Khal Drogo, but it's a cool version of his 90s costume. And since the colors are muted with a filter now, I think it will be a little more colorful in the end (you can see that his "pants" are green)
