Aquaman is definitely more popular than Martian Manhunter.

I'll admit Aquaman is more popular than Martian Manhunter, but is also a more riskier character to put on film. The main problem with him is a lot people have found him difficult to accept as a serious character & he sort of has this campy side to him. DC has tried to remedy this problem with by making more darker & with a serious tone.

It would be a challenge because of all the scenes & special effects underwater. Another obstacle would be how to have dialouge underwater without it sounding ridiculous. I do hope they can bring him to the big screen.

I pretty sure Aquaman wouldn't speak underwater with bubbles coming of his mouth because that would look crazy.

Couldn't they just say he talks with echolocation like a Dolphin or that he has magic seamen powers?

That blub-blub-blub thing Is just stupid mess from someone who's trying to be funny. The impossibility to speak under water in reality has NOTHING to do with Aquaman and his fantasy world. Bringing that up is even more stupid that complaining about sounds during a space battle.

No sounds in space doesn't look strange. Most people have never been in space, so they don't know how speaking in space look.

But a lot of people have actually dip themselves inside a swimming pool. Therein lies the difference.

But Aquaman isn't about the real world. It has an underwater kingdom, and the main character is a superhero. And still the "speaking underwater" thing is the hardest thing to accept? Come on guys, just drop it!!!!!

Is Aquaman movie exclusively made for comic book readers or for anyone out there?

If it's just a fan service, don't expect it to reap big to cover its costly (basically most the water scene is made of CGI so the actors don't need to act under water) expenses.

of course it's for anyone out there but I dont see what that has to do with talking underwater.

As someone said Aquaman is rooted in magic, if they really want to have him talk underwater they can use some magic excuse or some Atlatean technology. As long as they movie is decent I dont think that msot people will care that much

I mean it's science fiction/fantasy

Yes, it is not for real. It's only made up.

chiefchierpa: A lot of people have put on a ring, but that didn't turn them invisible.... or slowly made their lives worse than a nightmare. Yet people still liked the LOTR films.
A lot of people have driven a car.... without travelling in time to 1955 or 2015.
And millions of people live their lives all day, without being chased by killer robots from the future.
So the race of atlanteans being able to speak underwater without blub-blub-blub is not a big deal in the big picture.
Do you get the point?

With Aquaman's dialouge underwater I'd go with telepathy or some Atlantean tech. I'd also like to see his abilities in controlling sea life.

Are you guys talking about James Cameron's Blockbuster Aquaman starring Vincent Chase???

I heard that movie was the highest grossing Superhero Movie beating Spiderman's opening weekend opener.


I only saw the part when Arthur Curry was at the pier ready to jump at that big tidal wave but the projector at the theatre blacked out.

I think they could pull off a good visual look without actually putting all the actors underwater. They could use a technique similar to the one in The Spirit... Check out this featurette to see what I'm talking about.

Acting in triple speed might not be the way to go, as performances would obviously suffer from that, but I think they could take some ideas from that approach.

The serious factor can be fixed with a simple casting decision, i.e. Alexander Skarsgard as Aquaman.

I don't see the "talking underwater" to be a big issue either. Atlanteans can talk underwater, we know that, so it's not like they will behave the same way as normal humans do underwater, including when talking. Something can also be done to slightly alter actors' voices to give the illusion that they are talking underwater and this can be done for the Atlanteans.

They did it in Transformers 2 and in Harry Potter and the Goble of Fire. When Harry swam in the lake and had gills, he was able to talk (go to 3:30 for dialogue underwater):

As said above, actors don't have to always be filmed actually underwater, there are a lot of visual tricks to make it seem like they are.

Talking underwater will work with a little exposition, magic or tech doesn't matter.

Here's a costume design I made a while ago and thought I'd get it into like a mariner-esque Atlantean look. Also for casting, I chose True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard.

My Aquaman choice is Teddy Sears. He has the right type of stoicness needed for Arthur Curry.

They won't make an Aquaman movie because of Entourage. That show ruined any chance of it happening.
