Aquaman is a planned movie and is the seventh film in the DC Extended Universe about Arthur Curry's destiny as the King of Atlantis.
Sunrise Entertainment's producers Alan and Peter Riche are devoloping Aquaman to the big screen for Warner Bros. Pictures. Ben Grant, a first time scribe, was hired to write the screenplay. However the film fell through. In 2007 Santiago Cabrera was cast as Aquaman in its upcoming JLA film. However, later in the year the movie was shelved. In July 2009 it was reported that Aquaman is in development at Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way. Warner chairman and CEO Barry Meyer says that the Aquaman film is in development.
The project was announced on October 15, 2014 with Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Orin, Aquaman.
Many fans still haven't recovered from the initial shock of seeing Jason Momoa as the King of Atlantis. Some thought he looked more like Rob Zombie than an underwater savior. The character will appear on screen with knotted-up dreadlocks and a series of tribal tattoos and matching armor. He definitely looks like someone you wouldn't make jokes about. At least not to his face. The original photo does have hints of gold, and perhaps a very dull green. But it's not the bright and poppy orange and green we're used to seeing. Will there be several costumes for Aquaman? That we don't know yet. But it's hard to imagine the iconic DC character lounging around in this getup while awaiting his next meeting at the Hall of Justice.
Jason Momoa is expected to make his debut appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, though that has never been confirmed by anyone directly associated with the movie. He will then next be seen in Justice League Part 1, which arrives in 2017, before moving onto his own solo adventure in 2018. He's expected to appear in Justice League Part 2 in 2019. It isn't known if he is scheduled to appear in any of the other upcoming DC Comics movies. His role in Batman v Superman is said to be a glorified cameo, and won't consist of more than two scenes.Read More
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City's own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis's most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it's ever known before. Zack Snyder directs Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from a screenplay by Chris Terrio.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth and Holly Hunter in an unspecified role.

In the Entourage TV series, the fake Aquaman movie starring Vincent Chase and directed by James Cameron set an opening weekend record of $116.8 million in 2006, which is a far cry from the current box office record holder, Jurassic World's $208.4 million. Despite the in-series movie being a huge hit, Chase got out of his contract for the sequels, being replaced by Jake Gyllenhaal. It's worth noting that Warner Bros., which is making the Aquaman movie, also made the Entourage movie, so it may be possible that Adrian Grenier could actually have a cameo in Aquaman. Take a look at the actor's video interview, along with a clip from the Entourage version of Aquaman.
Aquaman comes to theaters July 27th, 2018.Read More
We haven't seen many photos from the Toronto set of Suicide Squad lately, as production continues inside Pinewood Studios. But if a new rumor is to be believed, the super villain ensemble will feature an appearance by none other than Jason Momoa's Aquaman. It has been long rumored that Aquaman and the rest of the Justice League members will appear at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and an unconfirmed report surfaced yesterday that revealed Aquaman will be held as a prisoner in a containment chamber, where fans will see his hand slap against the glass. As it turns out, this ties into his appearance in Suicide Squad as well. Be warned, there will be POTENTIAL SPOILERS for Suicide Squad below, so read on at your own risk.
Last month, another rumor surfaced that Viola Davis' Amanda Waller has Aquaman's trident in a trophy case that will be seen in Suicide Squad. This new report claims that Aquaman is being held in Waller's prison, where he is being "studied and tested on." He was reportedly caught after an epic fight with none other than iconic DC Villain King Shark (Raymond Olubawale), described as a mutant shark, who is being held in the same prison. There was another rumor that King Shark is in a special area in the basement of this prison, reserved for those with superhuman abilities, which is where Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) is believed to be held as well.Read More
