I've Got Issues: How To Make Aquaman Work On The Big Screen


As you may have heard, Jason Momoa has all but been confirmed as Aquaman in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, and then presumably the upcoming Justice League movie, too. If you’re anything like me, this is like hearing Danny Trejo was cast as Spongebob. A tough actor known for playing supreme badasses cast as a character widely regarded as a joke. But after processing this news for a bit, casting Momoa as Aquaman is absolute genius.

The story is too old to be commented.

For the longest time he has been the butt of so many bad superhero jokes, but I really think that now more than ever the time is ripe for an Aquaman movie. Considering how trashed our oceans are nowadays, and the fact that it is one of the most serious environmental concerns facing our existence, the character actually has a lot of significance. Momoa is perfectly cast.

Aquaman truly is badass. He's a fricking King, and basically owns 70% of the earth, not to mention the largest and most ferocious creatures of the dark deep.

Hope they do him Justice

And after the events of MoS, I can see why he'd get absolutely pissed at the land-dwellers.

He has changed in the comics to be rather cool. You could start in the ocean, have our trash and oil destroy his city or something similar, then he comes to land to stop the villain. In the comics he summons thunderstorms or uses water from buildings to fight and it's neat.
