That sound you just heard was a thousand concerned mothers yelling down into the basement “Is everything alright honey?” at the exact same time in response to the loud nerdy groan they heard from their adult sons after seeing the first picture of Jason Momoa as Aquaman. And that groan could mean many things; that they’re pissed that Aquaman doesn’t look like this anymore, that Aquaman looks super kewl, or that they just came from staring into Jason Momoa’s “I will sex you” eyes. Personally, my nerd groan was for reasons #1 and #3; even though Aquaman doesn’t look a damn thing like Aquaman anymore, Jason Momoa is still fine as hell and can get it to the bottom of the sea and back.
Zack Snyder released the first picture of Jason Momoa as Aquaman from the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice last night on Twitter, and just like Wonder Woman before him, Aquaman appears to be some kind of post-apocalyptic HGH steampunk hobo armadillo made out of robot parts dug up by WALL·E. If Zack Snyder was going for King Triton’s puddle-dwelling meth-making half-brother, then I guess he nailed it?
I don’t know that much about Aquaman besides the fact that he’s the part-merman or something and can talk to the fishes, but Jason Momoa’s Aquaman looks like the type of dude who sits beside you on the bus, smelling like chum and talking to the invisible fishes in his head. And yet, still sexier than Ben Affleck as Batman.
