Our First Look At Jason Momoa As Aquaman Is Righteously BADASS

I had my reservations as to how they could make a standalone movie about Aquaman. He just seems so boring. But this photo that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder dropped overnight of Jason Momoa in full Aquaman regalia is pretty damn sweet.

Who would have guessed the guy who played Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones and Conan the Barbarian would be able to make Aquaman look like such a badass? (That’s a joke. The guy is intense as hell.)

“There is only one true King. #unitetheseven,” wrote Snyder in his tweet. No definitive word on what the “seven” is, but there is speculation that it’s either the seven seas or the seven members of the Justice League – Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Cyborg and of course, Aquaman. My guess it that it’s the latter.

Snyder has also not said whether Aquaman will appear in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is set to premiere on March 25th, 2016. After seeing this, let’s hope that he does.

The standalone Aquaman movie is scheduled for release on July 27th, 2018.
