The King Of Atlantis Revealed…

Aquaman

(Aquaman – DC Comics, 1941-2015)

Zack Snyder revealed through Twitter earlier, the first image of Jason Momoa as the King of Atlantis – Aquaman, and damn does he look awesome! Momoa is probably best remembered as the Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo from popular HBO series Game of Thrones. His casting by Snyder was a sublime choice, riding off the back of his very popular role in the George R.R. Martin adaptation, Momoa was born to play a Superhero of some kind, a physically imposing actor with fantastic dramatic range and skill.

Aquaman (real name Arthur Curry) was created in 1941 by Mort Weisinger and Paul Norris, his first appearance was in More Fun Comics #73. Arthur is the King of the mythical sunken city of Atlantis where he rules the Atlanteans alongside his wife Mera. The more I see of the upcoming characters of DC’s cinematic take on it’s iconic universe, the more excited I am becoming, and this reveal by Snyder today has ramped that up to stratospheric proportions! … 2016 cannot come soon enough for this particular DC fan.
