Behold, surface dwellers! Jason Momoa will be returning to the silver screen as Aquaman in Zack Snyder’s anticipated movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016).¬†Snyder broke the news late last Thursday night, tweeting the first image of the actor as the classic king of the seven seas. My fear once hearing that Mr. Drogo had been selected was how they were going to handle the transition of the comic book character to the big screen without him coming off ‘naff’.

Judging by Snyder’s direction his look is anything but classic . The blond – Caucasian, orange clad Aquaman of the comic books has been dumped for a dark edgy imposing monarch, draped in body tattoos with a scraggly beard – invoking the image of Neptune of ancient mythos.

The king of Atlantis will only be making two appearances in the movie but we will be able to catch him in two Justice League films as well as his own stand alone movie which are under development.

The future of DC movies looks promising.
