If you keep up with this sort of thing even casually, you’ll know that there’s been rumors about Aquaman being in the new Batman Vs. Superman movie. This is mostly notable because Aquaman is seen as the loser of the Justice League. He commands fish, for fuck’s sake. You know what happens if Aquaman gets into a super-fight someplace that isn’t near a large body of water? He gets his ass beat because he has no fish to bail his ass out. While I absolutely loathe The Big Bang Theory, this bit on Aquaman is pretty on-point.
He’s riding a fucking seahorse guys. The only way Aquaman could be lamer is if he was literally crippled. Are you all sufficiently worried about Batman Vs. Superman being a shitshow of stupid? Good, because I’m here to put your fears to rest by telling you that Jason Momoa, aka Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones, has officially been cast as Aquaman. You know, this guy:
Is gonna be playing this guy:
Via Comic Book Resources,
“After months of speculation and rumors, Varietyreports that “Game of Thrones” actor Jason Momoahas been cast as Aquaman in Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Long rumored to be in talks to play the King of the Seven Seas, Momoa’s casting as Aquaman marks the announcement of the first member of the Justice League in the DC Cinematic Universe since Gal Gadot was confirmed as Wonder Woman in December 2013.”
My jury’s still out on Ben Affleck playing Batman, but there’s no doubt in my mind that Khal Drogo will absolutely wreck shit as Aquaman…despite being stuck in fish fuckery.
Aw hell, here’s another one for the road:
