What do you guys think? I'm excited for this movie but I don't know about such a buff aquaman.

Ew, not a fan. And he definitely doesn't look like Aquaman. :(

Alright, so first off, I have to say that Jason Momoa was the best things about a bad remake with Conan the Barbarian.  I could go on about that movie, but that's not what you posted.

Aquaman sounds like a dud to me, but then I thought Thor was going to be too obscure and bizarre for audiences. Green Lantern went the way of Spidey 3 by trying to do too much, and not doing any very well. I'm worried about that happening here.

With that said, I love Christopher Nolan, and think that I can hear angels singing when I describe his work on the Dark Knight trilogy. However, nothing sounds good about this sequel from DC. Ben Affleck is great behind the camera, but that's all. In front, he's not my fave. Bringing Wonder Woman into this already overbooked movie is what got me thinking about a boycott.

So, what's that go to do with the OP? DC is trying to force themselves into Marvel's world, and it's not a pretty sight. I think Aquaman will not be great, but it won't be because of Jason Momoa.
