People have been making fun of Aquaman for a really long time now. But the jokes have considerably reduced once the first look of the character appearing in the DC Extended Universe was released. Jason Momoa honestly looks menacing with those dark tattoos, trident and amazing dreadlocks. The actor has assured that all the jokes will stop completely once fans see the King of Atlantis in next year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” The real question now is how will the character connect to the “Justice League.” Read on.
According to Movie Pilot, Aquaman is a relatively lesser-known character when compared to the heavyweights of “Justice League” mainly Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. But despite that he has had his unique set of skills that make him really powerful and a valuable addition to the team. On his affiliation with the “Justice League,” he has been one of the seven founding members of the team and going by the idea that the King of Atlantis will be introduced in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” as a surfer guy living by the seas. He might choose to reveal himself in his real form when the main villain of “Justice League” attacks Earth and the newly formed team is in need of extra pair of hands. This idea is very similar to the “New 52 series” in which Aquaman gets introduced in a similar way. All the heroes assemble themselves to fight against Darkseid when his Parademons attack Earth following his order to capture it. While fighting these demons, Aquaman emerges from the water because just like other heroes Darkseid’s henchmen were attacking even him. After being doubted by Green Lantern over his abilities, Aquaman shows his real powers, which further strengthen him as a valuable asset to the “Justice League.”
Vine Report added that after being introduced in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and making his presence felt in “Justice League,” Aquaman will be getting a solo movie of his own which will be helmed by James Wan. After having made successful horror movies, it would be interesting to know what angle does Wan bring to the “Aquaman” solo movie when it releases on July 27, 2018.
