On one hand it looks like its trying a little too hard to make him look badass, to the point that he's totally unrecognizable. On the other hand, it is a cool look. We all know from experience how hard it is to design cool looking underwater apparel for dudes.

It probably doesn't help that he isn't blonde, and aquaman is always portrayed as being blonde. Also there isn't a bright orange shirt.

Yeah. I just realized its not totally out of nowhere since for a while in the comics he had long hair and a beard and no shirt. Sometimes he even had that weird armor on only one shoulder look. But its not as well known as his typical costume, and without the blonde hair its easy to have no idea what this is supposed to be.

I look at that and see a Thorin with tattoos...not Aquaman...I think they're trying too hard, but I'll still probably go see it.

I think it's funny, most of the flack seems to be coming from men online, and the women all love it. I think you have to have seen him as drogo on game of thrones to understand how epic this is. I hope they put in some kind of easter egg where he says something about "my moon and stars" I'll just die.

I was excited for this casting from the moment it was announce. I think this is more believable than Ben Affleck as batman lol. I am hoping this movie will open the door for a wonder woman movie and an aquaman movie. We need more female super heroes and it is INSANE that superman and batman have had so many movies and we get nothing for women from DC. Meanwhile marvel is fishing out female characters left right and center in TV and film and they're actually main characters.

I always pictured atlantians with tats and fish netting and dreads and stuff. Makes me think of that disney movie only more hardcore.

love love love everything about it. wooo. I love the super hero genre so I tend to see most of the films, for me marvel is what i tend to see more of in theatre as opposed to DC but it's been a while since DC has had a big it. Maybe this one will be it.

Haters be Psy in the toilet and I be snoop doing a dance in the tub hahahaha

I would love to see a movie of mostly female superheroes with a few scantily-clad male ones just thrown in for sex appeal. Y'know, as sort of a counter to how many of the OPPOSITE sort of superhero movies we have.

My first thought was only, "what's Khal Drogo doing with a pitchfork?".

But seriously, it's cool.
Simply because he looks like someone straight out of Greek mythology, and greek mythology > comics :p

Aquaman's scale just look like normal tattoos. I would've thought they put more effort into them and made it look realistic.

I think they're meant to be tattoos. A lot of Atlantian depictions have em covered in tribal tattoos.

So, we were talking about this at mermaid brunch today and all the men dislike him and all the girls loved him. Haha I love it

But they look like little hearts... one for every fish he's kissed? ;)

My friend who is so into comics actually complained about the new costume for Aquaman. I pointed out the difference between original comic batman and movie batman. Every hero needs a badass make-over!

Yeah.... my only problem with the new Aquaman costume is that he still has pants on.

You gotta love Masters of the Universe in that regard.
Everyone was equally unclothed, regardless of gender :p

And as if that wasn't enough, Eternia's counterpart Etheria consisted of a bunch of purely female heroines.
With one dude for eye candy (muscled guy playing the harp, yea I can see it LOL).

I feel really old and nerdy that I only think of Jason Momoa as Ronan from Stargate:Atlantis.

I think he looks awesome and more Poseidon-like. When I think of the Aquaman comic (granted, I haven't read the comics, so there's that) I always remember seeing some blond, Ken-doll with a tan, and it makes me cringe. I think Jason Momoa could make this character bad-ass, and he looks more the way I imagine a super hero from the sea to look - powerful and dangerous and mesmerizing. Not like a wet golden retriever.

I am so ridiculously excited for JM's Aquaman. Aquaman is a total badass. It's summed up pretty well in this album:

Does anyone else hope that they give him the harpoon hand?

If you want a blonde Aquaman, there's always the unaired WB Aquaman pilot (https://itunes.apple.com/us/tv-season/aquaman/id168272184) on iTunes

Definitely loving the new look. My comic book encyclopedia roommate hates that he doesn't have blond hair (the color is a symbol of his human heritage, which the Atlantians hate), but then, there isn't much color in the picture anyway. He said I'm just a merfreak, so of course I love it :D Also, Khal Drogo = perfect hardcore mer king.
