Aquaman Appreciation thread #1: Because he's King of Atlantis!


Welcome to the thread everyone to discuss 1 of my favorite DC characters, Aquaman.

I'm curious if anyone has been reading the Aquaman new 52 comics & what you want to see in an Aquaman movie? I read the Aquaman Graphic Novel titled ''The Trench''. It's volume 1 of the new 52 & terrifically written by Geoff Johns. Anyother fans of his out there?

Wow. Was hoping there would be Aquaman fans around here. He is the heart & soul of DC's Justice League. Speaking of which, ''What Culture'' has a list of 8 actors who ''must'' be cast for the upcoming Justice League film. Armie Hammer made the list to play ''Aquaman''. He was in ''The Social Network'' ''Gossip Girl'' & ''J. Edgar'' among other things.

i've never been into aquaman and i'm sad to say that i don't know much about him and his world. i'm familiar w/some characters more than others. i don't know. for some reason, the character never resonated w/me. i remember watching young justice and how i liked the character aqualad and there were a few episodes that focused on him and his world, which i thought was intriguing.

i also remember there was going to be an aquaman tv show on the cw a few years ago w/justin hartley playing arthur curry. the studio never picked up the show and he moved on to play oliver queen on smallville. beyond that, never really been into aquaman. still, i think if this character is ever adapted on screen, it'd be pretty interesting to see.

There's lots of interesting things about him. Aquaman is 1 of the founding members of the Justice League of America. His character originally debuted in 1941 in the ''More Fun Comics'' issue #73. Some of his abilities are swimming 100 Mils Per Hour under water, & water adapted physiology.

I don't know much about him apart from the Justice League involvement, but he sure sounds interesting. I can't believe there's never been an Aquaman on tv or movies ever.

Armie Hammer certainly looks the part.

In 2006 there was an Aquaman Pilot created by the creators of ''Smallville'' for the WB, but of course WB turned into CW & that network passed on it. Lou Diamond Phillips & Ving Rhames were in the Pilot.

Oh, I do remember the comics and always enjoyed reading them. He had great stories and adventure.

**wait is there really a movie in the works? Or is it still talk and speculation?
