Default Aquaman needs to happen before Namor.

WB needs to get this movie out before marvel pulls another one over DC.

I would love to see this movie in action.

Marvel has a speedy version of the Flash too. WB looks like their throwing in the towel on Superhero movies until 2015's Justice League. We won't see WW, Flash, or Aquaman until 2017 and up. So, it looks like Marvel has a strong advantage here.

I don't know. If you look at the dates Namor was created first. Which sort of suggests (similar to how the FF and Avengers came after the JLA) that DC saw what Marvel was doing and did their own version. Marvel and DC did that a lot back then.
So I sort of want to see a Namor movie first.
But I do want to see Aquaman in a movie JLA or solo.

No one that lived back then is going to see Namor today. It think it is all about who is more popular now that will ultimately determine who's film gets made first.

Namor movie is never going to happen. He is a mutant so his rights belongs to FOX. They wouldn't be so stupid to do a Namor movie that no one is going to watch. Namor is nowhere near the popularity/iconic status of Aquaman.

I think they only get the rights if the character is featured, cameod, or mentioned in the films. Then the rights are theirs. Thats why they add all those characters. Namor was never mentioned or shown. Him being a Mutant, or siding with them, doesn't give his rights to the movie company. He could still show up in an FF movie as a villain, or an Avengers movie as a villain who turns good.

Yes, apparently Namor was licensed out seperately to Universal and has since reverted "home". He probably won't have a movie out for the forseeable future if ever, but like every character at Marvel there is/was supposedly a script treatment floating around for development.

Aquaman (although the most mocked hero of the Justice League) is the more iconic character between the two. So, yes, I want an Aquaman movie first.

James Cameron should direct.

Also, Namor's kind of a j**k**s, he will go to war against mankind in the name of his people but he just wants somebody to rule over, he's allways trying to steal married women from others and is never sorry for doing what he does.

In his comic appearances the heroes allways end up saying how he isn't trully evil, etc, but he acts like a villain, his intents are allways selfish and he never learns.

Does an Aquaman movie need to happen at all? I feel like it'd flop harder than Green Lantern just on the fact that it's Aquaman. This has nothing to do with my perception of the character mind you... I actually like Aquaman and can appreciate some of his more impressive qualities. The general public on the other hand... I can't tell you how many times I've heard the mockery from people who know nothing about the character. People make a joke of Aquaman because it's popular to do so. And that's the worst thing that can happen for a character because now no one will want to go see the movie regardless of how serious them make it seem - you might get a few renting the DVD to make fun of it later on...

I think that if Aquaman comes on screen at all, he should be in Justice League exclusively. In the context of a team of other popular characters, audience members might be less critical. That's a big might though... I think he'll forever be in danger thanks to Super Friends and Robot Chicken unfortunately

It would flop like Green Lantern im sure of it. Ive warmed up to him a little bit and I can see ways to make him a bit badass without doing what everybody thinks theyre gonna do: something really cheesy. But it would just flop without a shadow of a doubt.

Aquaman could be huge with the right director, actor, visual style, and trailer

(just imagine the Man of Steel trailer, especially the first minute with all that water, as an Aquaman movie, produced by Nolan, with the Nolanverse-esque title "Man of Atlantis".

Sooooooo much potential with Aquaman. It's a lot more in line with Bats and Supes than GL or the Flash are, tonally, with its personal, weighty story and serious protagonist. An interesting foil to Man of Steel perhaps; Man of Atlantis.

(a man of two worlds, like Supes, yet his other world is still there, for him to protect. Bringing an 'alien' threat even closer to home than Man of Steel, as the 'alien' world is actually on Earth)

Huge? I doubt it. It could be a good movie, it could LOOK huge. But I seriously doubt it's "success".

Every person I talk to whether a fanboy or "general audience member" laughs their head off at the thought of Aquaman in a movie or at the thought of him being used in a more serious manner. There's an argument to say that a good amount of people wouldn't want to sit through a movie like that. Even if there are hardcore fans of the character.

I do picture him with a badass suit, something like Cavills in material. I can visualize other cool things too but I just don't see it winning over the larger population.

He needs to debut in a Justice League movie or something and stay there.

Except for nerds like myself, every person I talked to, my age at least, also used to laugh at Superman, with his cowlick and red underwear.

But I agree, Aquaman would have to do eveeeen more, especially given that even the nerds on Big Bang Theory make fun of him.

Default Re: Aquaman needs to happen before Namor.

Namor was the first Atlantean antihero and he's still the best. Someone dismissed Namor as a jerkass but that's part of what makes him great. He has legitimate gripes against the surface world that create a built-in source of dramatic tension for the character. Marvel could quite easily give the Sub-Mariner an environmental subtext by focusing on humanity's pollution of the seas and over-fishing as reasons for Namor's conflict with the human race. Then all they would need do is tie him in with the other characters in the MCU, including WWII ally Captain America and eventual Defenders teammate Doctor Strange, and there you have your undersea blockbuster.


Frankly, I expect Marvel to include Namor, The Sub-Mariner as part of its lineup no later than Phase 4, whereas I doubt that WB will ever make an Aquaman movie. Marvel Studios exists solely to adapt its comic book properties, and the Sub-Mariner is one of its heavy hitters. With Doctor Strange already in the works, Namor then becomes a necessary component for another big franchise, the aforementioned Defenders. I don't see WB taking that kind of risk with Aquaman, especially after they were burned by GL.

What if he debuted in Justice League and everybody thought he was badass?

A solo Aquaman film could be better than "Waterworld". It all depends on the script and the production budget. If they add a romantic angle and some great action scenes, it could sell.

An Aquaman movie happening always excites me. But knowing WB, I don't think it will happen anytime soon.

I really hope WB are indeed getting Nolan's name slapped on everything.

Nolan's involvement could attract the needed talent, directors and actors, to make Aquaman great.

Aquaman shouldn't start out with his own movie. But after he debuts in a JL movie and audiences like the character, that's the time to start making solo movies. A lot of those people laugh at Aquaman because they only see the Superfriends version and don't know the mythos of Aquaman. They need the movies to fill them in. Aquaman has huge franchise potential, one of the best in the DCU, and that's saying something. His world a mixture of sci-fi and magic so it connects and collects fans of both genres. Not to mention the giant sea beasts which could attract monster movie fans. Let's not forget the great villains like his brother, Orm; and his enemy Black Manta.

That's really not even the tip of the ice berg when it comes to the potential that Aquaman has. I don't see it failing at all once people get introduced to the character via JL.
