Default The All Encompassing AQUAMAN Movie Thread

Discuss all you'd want to see in an Aquaman movie here. Cast, crew, director, villains, storyline etc. I'll be posting my full cast list, choice of director and villain very soon. :)

I think DC has been shamed into not liking their own characters by all the jokes poked at Aquaman over the years.........

And yet ANT-MAN............(another lampooned hero) is already in production and with a sweet clip.........

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpa4NLM1YMM

See??? Even in this clip, this twerp keeps calling Ant-Man "silly"! SMH

But is that stopping Marvel?? NO!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5M0BCnJvws


On top of this.....Marvel is bringing a TALKING RACOON.....AND A WALKING TREE to the screen this August......

Get it together DC.........Aquaman cant get a movie?? Really??? Jonn Jonzz??

Hawkman???? SMH

They just have no faith in their characters....

I don't think the Aquaman jokes are why WB has no faith in their characters in general. That would just be general apathy, I would say.

They are probably why they have no faith specifically in *Aquaman*, though. . . and being fair, I think that's a reasonable position, because the Aquaman brand is kind of toxic. He has the misfortune of actually being fairly well known. . . as a complete joke and punch line.

No. Just no. Warner Brothers just said that we will soon here and announcement on the DC line soon, many speculating Comic-Con, not that it will probably be too different from the other announcments they have made regarding the universe but still its a show of faith.

The Ant-man clip you're talking about is TEST footage that may not even be what final film is like.

They have put a ton of effort into rebooting the character and making him a central force of the comic line. The jokes and punchlines will always be there, they were there for Batman due to the '66 series and he overcame that, Aquaman is a strong enough character to overcome the jokes.

So its just an accident that Aquaman has an animated movie devoted to him coming out and almost had a TV show a few years ago?

Oh, I agree, and it would be nice if Aquaman were rehabilitated. Given how tough a challenge it would be, though? I am inclined to say they should wait until after they've successfully done a few other, less toxic, characters. Do a good, successful Wonder Woman movie, and *then* give Aquaman a try.

As I was saying in the closed thread...

Momoa fits the bill, especially if they go for an Aquaman who's been King for a while
In a solo film, they need to tell his origin. That requires a younger actor.
If not a pretty boy, then find some decent looking actor. Maybe even an ugly one? As long as he can act and have dramatic depth to him, it will be good.

Also id like an aqua man movie where its shot really vivid, have atlantis this vibrant colorful place, and the surface with rubbish in the streets and so on, to drive home the difference in how atlanteans respect their waters. Even manners should be a contrast
