Jason Momoa As Aquaman Can TAKE ME NOW

Comic book fans will kill me for saying this, but you know how Aquaman started out kind of lame? I’m gonna go ahead and blame that on the image. I mean, orange and green? Really? It doesn’t exactly foster confidence in a superhero for him to look like a marigold. Even recreating his origin story didn’t help, because even though the character got better in the last couple of decades, it’s really hard to believe that the king of Atlantis wears orange and green. And, at that, that he’s a lily white dude with blond hair.

Enter Jason Momoa and Zack Snyder to fix all of that:

Um, yeah, now that is a person I would believe was once the king of Atlantis. Also, get out of my dreams and into my pants. Good lord, is Jason Momoa hot.

Just for comparison, here’s a side-by-side of the 90s iteration of Aquaman versus the Aquaman that will be appearing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next year:
