That "fix" is only really supportable if you haven't read anything anyone has written.

It's not the hair for me. I actually like the hair.

Couple of us have pointed out reasons for not liking it in previous part of this thread and it would be too much if we were to repeat them. Also we would most probably be accused of "whining", so if you're not too lazy, help yourself.

Aquaman's hair doesn't bother me. But I don't care for the tattoos. I think they serve two purposes. Heritage background and the tattoos on his arm resemble the design on his comic book costume

I'm not really keen on changing Aquaman's powers to copy someone else. Would rather stick to how he's unique and bring in other characters that are different.

Bioluminescent tattoos...that may be interesting. Maybe it only would happen when he is going to attack with his trident. That may be too much for fans though.

Actually that suit is used as a real thing and meant as shark camouflage.

As someone who doesn't really know much about Aquaman, I only have one criticism about the image of Mamoa and it's the hair. Ideally, any live action depiction of a comic book character should be immediately recognizable as the character they are based on. After all, the only reason an adaption is being made is because people have come to like and to recognize the character in question. One way to assure this is to keep the basic colour scheme intact. Without blonde hair there's very little to make people identify Mamoa with the images that the collective public associate with Aquaman.
It's the same reason I can't see Amy Adams as Lois Lane, no matter how good a job she does. I just see her as a red head who happens to share traits with Lois Lane.

I feel like the lack of color in the image is an attempt to hide the inconsistencies with the color scheme as a way to not anger the fans. This is probably also the reason we didn't get a full color image of Batman and Wonder woman.

That doesn't make any sense, though. Batman's suit is black and grey (by all accounts) and, with the filter taken off, Wonder Woman's costume is red and blue.

Batman's belt may not be yellow, and he might not have the black trunks. Those are two differences that are downplayed by the filter. As for Wonder Woman, there could be a few inconsistencies in the colour scheme, you haven't seen it yet.

It's just like how the first official picture of Superman from MOS was obscuring the pelvis, to downplay the absence of trunks.

Jason Momoa “Freaked Out” When He Saw The Aquaman Reveal
Quote:
A week ago, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder tweeted the first official image of Jason Momoa as Aquaman. "That was a shocker for sure," Momoa told Entertainment Weekly.

"It was supposed to be a surprise in 2016, so it definitely helps [our show]. I’ve been holding that secret for a long time. Zack Snyder called me up and said, “I’m posting this picture now.” He’s just a genius and I love him to death. He sent it over and we’re in the middle of the editing suite for the thing I’m doing right now, and we all freaked out, man. It was so amazing to see it come out."

I know it’s superficial of me, but one thing I really like about the potential of the DC movies is that its actors are actually pretty imposing. By that I mean, when I see you—who’s 6’5”—or 6’4” Ben Affleck or 6’1” Henry Cavill throw someone through a wall or get thrown through a wall, I feel like there’s really some damage being done. Have you filmed any action sequences with them yet?


No, we haven’t done too much on the action yet. You know, Justice League is still quite a ways away. But I’m looking forward to it. Henry’s a sweetheart, Ben is a badass, so I’m really looking forward to when we all shoot Justice League.

How much can we expect to see you in the Batman v. Superman movie?

Well, it’s Batman and Superman, it’s not my movie. It’s the first time in history to have them both on the screen together, and I’m just excited to see those two up there.

There was actually some speculation that Aquaman was meant to pop up in Man of Steel, in the underwater scenes after Henry Cavillis blasted off the oil rig. Were you ever involved in those discussions?


Well, you know, I think that’s left for the genius of Snyder to kind of reveal that. There’s definitely a plan in this whole universe that he’s designing, and it’s amazing to be a part of it. I think everything that you see that is building, there’s a purpose behind the whole plan. So I wouldn’t want to take anything away from Zack, because he loves revealing all those things. And… you never know, man.

Aquaman is much different than Conan the Barbarian because with that character, there was so much you had to live up to—because of Arnold more than anything. Aquaman is different because he’s been ignored a bit. But then when the Aquaman poster arrived, there was almost this sense of “Wow! This might be something different than we thought.” Do you sense that optimism towards the character?


Oh, absolutely. The whole mythology of Aquaman is pretty amazing. There’s so many things to tell, and there’s a whole backstory that’s just amazing. There’s a lot of surprises coming. I think, yeah, he’s been cast aside. But, um [laughs] times are going to change now, buddy.

Conan was really hard, because you have 15 different types of fans and so many things to respect and honor. To do it right it’s got to be bloody-bloody-bloody-bloody-bloody, and not a lot of people go see that anymore. It’s not the ’80s anymore. It’s a really hard format. We busted ass, but there were a lot of cooks in the kitchen on that one. What’s great about this is Zack, man. We don’t want to just reinvent it, but he’s a got a whole idea of what Aquaman should be and I’m really honored to be playing it. I’m excited for the world to see it.

The lack of trunks aren't being downplayed by the filter. There are actually no trunks there at all.
