    There are elements of DCCU's Aquaman design I am certainly not fond of, but whenever I see that picture of clean-shaven, fully armored Aquaman with contemporary haircut, I like Momoa's look a bit more.

    I'm curious to see if they'll really delve into the Atlantian culture. Like giving them their own language and religion and what not?

    I really hope they will. Even though it is based of comic book version of real-world mythical culture, I find that aspect and possibilities that are open in creating all that rather exciting. Same goes for Themyscira and Amazon nation.

    Actually, I just realized that revealed four of seven JL members are exactly those in whose movies I am most interested.
    I like Flash, but I never cared much for his universe and I never cared much for both Green Lantern and Cyborg and their universes.

    Wouldn't mind horror elements. Arthur could battle a nasty sea creature. Or the Trench.

    This is the first time I am hearing of this...All that's been linked to Wonder Woman is that the film might be a period piece.

    I'd like to see some horror elements. Not just because I am big fan of the genre, but I find that it would work rather well in claustrophobic, aquatic setting.

    Still, it shouldn't be presumed that Wan will definitely venture into horror, just because most of his previous work belongs to that genre. Even Carpenter made films that were completely devoid of horror.

    I agree. I'm just not a fan of the clean shaven Aquaman. I like how he stands out in comparison to the rest of the Justice League with his more gruff look.


    As far as horror elements in Aquaman... I'll say I'm no fan of horror, but... I can totally see there being elements of horror in the movie and it working. If anyone has read the new 52, there's some very creepy looking sea creatures that Aquaman fights. So, I can see it being a thing.

    I guess the thing is though superman has already done the gruff thing and Aquaman is meant to be quite regal so maybe a clean shaven Aquaman is a good idea?

    I mean momoa will still make him stand out and be a badass!

    Did King Arthur? And Momoa's Aquaman kinda evokes the image of Poseidon, the greek sea god. He rocked a beard as well.

    It helps when Wan's first comment post-announcement is quoting Lovecraft. I'm nearly salivating at the potential of this movie.

    Like I said a few days ago, if the Trench is inspired by Lovecraftian horror, I'm gonna crap my britches with glee. So much potential.

    I think we may be reading too much into this though. He is a horror director, so it is quite naturally for him to quote Lovecraft, given that every single artist that works within the genre is by some extent influenced and familiar with his work. And he probably just found that quote fitting for the underwater movie he is about to make.

    But this line of thinking doesn't prevent me from hoping that there might be some Lovecraftian influences, as the very thinking of that gives me a massive *****.
    Apologies for the crude way of putting it.

    :doh: This just keeps getting worse... I'll shut up now.
