Though still not confirmed, it seems fairly clear that Jason Momoa will play Aquaman in the upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” movie at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Schmoes Know has now added some further details about the character, namely his look. According to their sources: “He’s going to look like a surfer essentially with tribal tattoos and all that jazz.” Momoa has a tribal forearm tattoo which, if this report is accurate, will probably not be covered up in the film.
They also have a bit of information that sounds quite a bit more speculative and ties back to the oil rig collapse scene in “Man of Steel”. They say:
“You remember that scene in Man of Steel when after Supes saves the men on the oil rig and collapses into the water, he wakes up at some point and sees whales above him? Well apparently all those rumors that they may have been sent from Aquaman are right. Apparently, Aquaman sent the whales to save Supes and make sure he was okay, which makes sense considering we never actually see how Supes gets back to shore in the film. He sees the whales and then it cuts to him walking on land, which could mean they were saving the swim back for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
If that’s the case, it would indicate Aquaman’s presence has already been established on screen.
