This is the first we've heard about Aquaman being based on the New 52 comics, but you may recall that the new Suicide Squad logo teased a direct connection to the New 52 comic books. The Aquaman New 52 comics were overseen by Geoff Johns himself, with the 16-issue run leading to the crossover series Throne of Atlantis, which was adapted into the animated movie Justice League: Throne of Atlantis released earlier this year. It remains to be seen what aspects of the New 52 comics will actually be adapted into the Aquaman movie.
It was announced in June that James Wan is directing, and overseeing the screenplay written by Kurt Johnstad. Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder and Zack Snyder are producing, but it isn't known when principal photography may begin. Warner Bros. has already set a July 27, 2018 release date for Aquaman, and we already got our first look at Jason Momoa as the iconic character in a photo that Zack Snyder released back in February. The actor has teased that fans may get to see a more traditional orange and green costume, but nothing has been confirmed yet.Read More
As Game of Thrones enters Season 6 this spring, some fans are still reeling from the absence of Jason Momoa. His presence was larger than life, but if you still haven't gotten around to watching the first season of this hit HBO show, we won't ruin it for you. Rest assured, one person most affected by his early leave was Emilia Clarke, who dearly misses the time she got to spend with her co-worker. The two had a rousing reunion this weekend while both attended Paris fashion Week. And we have the photos that both shared on their Instagram account.
Emilia Clarke is reciting a taunting line of dialogue from Game of Thrones Season 1 that came from the spiteful healer Mirri Maz Duur. Her full quote is: 'When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. When the seas go dry and mountains blow in the wind like leaves. When your womb quickens again, and you bear a living child. Then he will return, and not before.' During the first season, Daenerys Targaryen is sold into marriage to the Dothraki Khal Drogo against her will. Eventually, the two fall in love.Read More
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. What do you think of these new Aquaman details? Chime in with your thoughts below, and check out the video of Jason Momoa at Toronto's Fan Expo Canada 2015Read More
Jason Momoa has good reason to be super stoked! James Wan has an impressive track record, with his previous film Furious 7 grossing $349 million in the states and $1.5 billion worldwide to become the second highest grossing movie of 2015 behind Avengers: Age of Ultron. His first The Conjuring movie pulled in $137 million off a $20 million budget. And he is responsible for co-creating the Saw franchise as well as Insidious. Will he be able to bring the same type of box office glory to Aquaman, helping to create a DC Movie Universe that rivals Marvel? Maybe.
James Wan is currently working on a sequel to The Conjuring, with The Conjuring 2 shooting for New Line this summer. After Aquaman, he will move onto Robotech for Sony. It's very unlikely that he will direct another film in the Fast & Furious franchise, but you never know. How about you? Are you as super stoked as Jason Momoa that James Wan is taking on this DC adventure, or did you have someone else in mind for the King of the Seven Seas?Read More
