First Look: Jason Momoa as Aquaman from 'Batman v. Superman'

February 19, 2015


We've already seen Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and of course, Henry Cavill as Superman. And now director Zack Snyder has given us another glimpse into the world of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice by posting the first image of Jason Momoa as the first big screen version of Aquaman. Snyder made the reveal on Twitter, just like he did with the Batmobile and the first photo of the new Batman, and this time the photo comes with the curious tagline of "Unite the seven." Could this be referring to the seven members of Justice League or maybe the seven relics of Atlantis? We're not sure.

Here's the first photo of Jason Momoa as Aquaman from Zack Snyder's Twitter:


Again, we're not sure what the tagline means. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, Cyborg and Green Lantern make for seven members of Justice League. But in the comics, there's also a storyline concerning items known as the seven relics of Atlantis. But something like that sounds a little too similar to the Infinity Gauntlet storyline that Marvel Studios is building up to, so I'm not sure that's correct either. Surely there are better educated Aquaman fans who can speculate a little better. Otherwise, I have to say, Momoa looks bad ass as Aquaman, even if he still looks like a Dothraki from "Game of Thrones."

Zack Snyder's sequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in the DC Comics Universe will bring back Henry Cavill as Superman and introduce Ben Affleck as Batman. Amy Adams, Laurence Fisburne and Diane Lane are all reprising their roles from Man of Steel, while more new additions include Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. There have also been rumblings of Ray Fisher as Cyborg and Jason Momoa also has some sort of role. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters next spring, March 25th, 2016.

I'm pleased! this is the bad ass Aquaman the world needs to see!

Zade_92 on Feb 19, 2015


Doesn't really look like Aquaman.

Jonathan on Feb 19, 2015


Yeah, I was really hoping we'd see something more like this!

The_New_leconfidant on Feb 20, 2015


Haha...maybe something in the middle.

Jonathan on Feb 20, 2015


Thanks for that. Made my morning. First thing my co-worker said when I showed him Momoa was "Hey, he needs his orange shirt and he better talk to fish" So I sent him this.

David Diaz on Feb 20, 2015


Well, Orange is the New Black!

Akirakorn on Feb 21, 2015


Yeah, and I'm very ok with that.

Miguel Garay Boszeta on Feb 21, 2015


Looks great!!

Mike McMeans on Feb 19, 2015


7 seas?

Jon Odishaw on Feb 19, 2015


Looks fine but what is Zack Snyder's problem with color?

Wonder what his civilian self will look like

Transmillion on Feb 19, 2015


He doesn't have one. He's king of Atlantis. About as uncivilian as it gets.

Robert V Frazier on Feb 20, 2015


Gotta admit, that looks pretty badass.

IamSlave on Feb 20, 2015


Unite the 7? Oh...7 Seas...LOL. Looks cool. "MERMAN!!!"

DAVIDPD on Feb 20, 2015


I thought the seven was referring to the Justice League (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Cyborg?), like they're really selling the multiple heroes thing?

Jonathan on Feb 20, 2015


That pentadent is boss

redskulllives on Feb 20, 2015


I am the only one who feels this is going to be one big mess of characters onley to build a universe of storylines? O yeah it was this movie which is delayed for a year and now we now the reason, to introduce more characters, so the original script is altered to make it possible! Omg! It will be one big pile of cgi with no connection and no empathy for who will be killed!

ari smulders on Feb 20, 2015


it will be DC trying to brand themselves with more serious characters , and cutting back on the humor

Dominic on Feb 21, 2015


Cyborg wasn't a founding member. In fact, isn't Cyborg a Teen Titan? Should be Martian Manhunter As long as they're changing stuff at this late date, why not change it and make it right? But I have to admit, this Aquaman is bad ass.

Jamie on Feb 20, 2015


Very good !!

HerCar on Feb 20, 2015


Looks like he's from that Clash of the Titans movie. The armor is really cool.

Unite the seven.... seas perhaps? The seven major seas of the world.

Rick Don on Feb 20, 2015


Whoa. Aquaman commands much more respect these days it seems.

avconsumer2 on Feb 20, 2015


For some reason, this comes to mind:

TheOct8pus on Feb 20, 2015


Dude looks like he's been watching Predator too much.

Al Apone on Feb 20, 2015


I like the armor and the triton but nothing else.

TXSteadyEddie on Feb 20, 2015


I like Momoa, but not feeling the vibe. Might be superhero burnt out setting in.

Steven on Feb 20, 2015


Interesting to be sure. Everyone says they like his armor. I only see one shoulder guard and two forearm gauntlets. Everything else is tribal tattoos. He certainly won't be blending in to the rest of the world. Looks more like Sons of Anarchy meets Free Willy. Anyway, it has peaked my curiosity.

theslayer5150 on Feb 20, 2015


Piqued? Unless your curiosity is as high as it gets!

OfficialJab on Feb 20, 2015


For this movie, yes my curiosity is as high as it can get.

theslayer5150 on Feb 20, 2015


Peaked would be at the top ; Piqued is more of a small interest in a thing ... the tattoos apparently to simulate scales ... .. Maybe he can swim faster without the left shoulder armor , but would need it on the sword arm while fighting underwater ... saves $ in the costume dept ...

Dominic on Feb 21, 2015


Is it too much to ask for a little bit of color (Not a Schumacherian pallete, of course), or even some blonde hair for chrissakes?

NicelyBuilt on Feb 20, 2015


it looks to be blond highlights, but I agree, I really wish the promos weren't afraid to show some color. The WW costume/promo is really lacking - just looks boring.

ColtNoir on Feb 20, 2015


why would you have color under the sea ? Would make the Defender of Atlantis be an easy target , wouldn't it ? .... Going for the more-reality based superhero movie , Hollywood is now ...

Dominic on Feb 21, 2015


Unite the seven: 1- Colours of the Rainbow 2- Snow White's Dwarves 3- Capital Sins 4- Soldiers of Victory (cookie for the one who gets the quote) 5- Academy Police Movies

capitandelespacio on Feb 20, 2015


6. Sins 7. Samurai 8. Winds 9. Reindeer 10. Continents

TheOct8pus on Feb 20, 2015


11. Hamburgers 12. Chilidogs 13. Hot wings 14. Tamales 15. Caramel Corn Mmm...

DAVIDPD on Feb 21, 2015


der, he's talking about the Super Seven, of course:

Carson Metzger on Feb 20, 2015


I have not seen Him in GoT but I have seen every thing else, and every thing he does is pretty much Ronin from StarGate: Atlantis. Is that the fit For AquaMan?

Brian Sleider on Feb 20, 2015


He's kind of a lot more badass in GoT, doesn't even speak "English". Typecast... ok yeah... buuuut... he does seem to have some chops. I do imagine he grows weary of the eyeliner / eye shadow though.

avconsumer2 on Feb 22, 2015


Seven seas?

timnimbus on Feb 20, 2015


I thought that too.

Miguel Garay Boszeta on Feb 21, 2015


Still Drogo. Still a boss.

Matt Khourie on Feb 21, 2015


But tridents do not have five horns?

Tuomas Lassila on Feb 21, 2015


This is all I can think of.

Patrick on Feb 21, 2015


The pressure is on DC to make something happen on the big screen. Man of Steel wasn't bad. Although It couldn't touch any of the recent Batman movies. Green Lantern was garbage. Avengers already set it off. They need this to be great.

TyeFighterPilot on Feb 22, 2015


oh but wait ! Batman has not got 1 atom of super in him Flash! And even Cyborg is pushing it..
