So, Aquaman is going to be in the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, and he’ll be played by Jason Momoa (known to Game of Thrones fans as Khal Drogo).
It may surprise readers to know that Aquaman is a character near and dear to my heart, and I think this is good news.
Aquaman has always been a victim of bad press, though this is part of his charm. There are thousands of jokes about how lame Aquaman is, and there may even be a song or two out there about it.
But, for us fans of Aquaman, this only makes him more relatable. After all, how many of us would like to be taken more seriously? But hell, Aquaman just doesn’t care. He’s not like say, Submariner, who is so insecure that he needs to wear tiny speedos and throws hissy fits resulting in his invading New York once a month.
No, Aquaman just smiles at the jokes and realizes one simple fact: He is the King of The Seven seas. That pretty much makes him the most powerful political leader on the planet.
Also he has a hot wife named Mera who looks kind of like Daenerys Stormborn. Only with redhair.
If he is lame, what does that make you?
By making Jason Momoa Aquaman, he becomes someone the naysayers would like to make fun of, but, even if you put the orange and green costume on him, he still looks better than you do in your cosplay Predator costume.
And, if you’re really nice to him, maybe he’ll give you a golden crown.
