    I know zero about comics but I'd love to see this Aquaman vs the Rock.

    I hate that DC let the years of jokes about this classic character get in their collective heads and make them change Aquaman into Lobo. Marvel's version of Aquaman was Antman........ Aside from the Pym and Scott identity being switched, they played it straight.... They believed in their character and trusted that once on screen, the amazing powers of the character, in action, would change the minds of all! And it did!

    Aquaman is not this Mamoa version..... even the new 52 version went away from the hook, bearded Namorification of Arthur Curry...... He's level-headed king. He's not a drinking tatted up brawler.

    And he's been in media longer than Namor who came before him. I just saw that rough underwater swimming clip.....I was just thinking how much better it woulda looked in something resembling his classic gear.

    @Shazam

    So, I take it you never saw Peter David's version, nor animated series one?

    Momoa is going to be a combination of the Peter David, Geoff Johns', and the current ongoing. The looks and grumpiness if definitely coming from the David run. The inspiration for the lore and the like will come from New-52/Rebirth, two really strong runs for Aquaman particularly.

    Two strongest ones, as far as I know. Though I still like David's run more.

    Yeah, sure but also...

    Arthur has had numerous looks. We are seeing throughout CBMs that there is a plethora of influences that come to bear on how characters are presented. I prefer a Thor that wears his helmet and Cap with physical wings on his cowl. I prefer Batman with the yellow oval and the dark blue and gray. But cest la vie... The gladiator look was popular for a time and it was a time when comics sold more than they do today.

    All that said... My preference is NOT the long haired barbarian look at all... But it far from bothers me that is the route they took. It satisfies the purist in me in that it's not a look made up whole cloth by the film makers but is a direct comic book style, and frankly Momoa looks amazing and both the fully armored costume and the topless one made by Snyder's team beautiful to my eyes.

    Red one is a Flashpoint Aquaman, I believe. Not sure about a whiter shade of pale, though...

    I am not a fanart guy,they should of tried making Momoa look like this
    I figured with Momoa they going with the Barbarian look Aquaman had in the comic rather than his traditional look,I wonder if they will give him a hook hand down the road.

    I fail to see the significant changes between that image and the unite the seven one outside of lighter hair.

    I wouldn't want to be a Parademon having to face off against that.

    Wish they put more gold on his top armor. No leg fins are a travesty.

    Leg fins are kinda suggested by the shape of greaves, but I wish they were more pronounced.

    Aquaman looks bad ass, and also a bit Serpentor-ish.

    At first I was skeptical about Momoa being cast as Aquaman but now I am definitely a believer...perfect casting
