Zack Snyder has revealed Jason Momoa as Aquaman through his twitter account earlier today, stating “There is only one true King.”
While this bears little resemblance to the Aquaman from the comics, Momoa does make the hero look pretty bad ass. I especially like the look of the tattoos, though I think real armor might be more effective against Superman than ink.
What is most intriguing are the details that can be seen upon closer inspection. At first glace you can notice his tattoos on his left arm mirror the armor on his right, and his belt holds the iconic Aquaman symbol like his comicbook counterpart. The coloring also matches his comic version, with the armor being a yellow/orange and his pants being a green scale pattern.
Snyder hasn’t released any more details just yet, but we’ll keep you posted when he does!
Aquaman will first appear in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice on March 25, 2016.
