Aquaman set-photo! Featuring the King of Fishes ripping it up on a guitar. Jason Momoa. You are too beautiful for this plane of existence.
My wife and I, with our mutual crush-lusts, are guaranteed to see Jason Momoa in any movie.
I don’t think James Wan is a particularly good director. His aesthetic choices in Furious 7, especially following the master auteur Justin Lin’s vision of the franchise, were certainly off-putting to me. But he’s accessible enough, and capable of helming an enormous flick. Now he’s helming two.
Here is the first official look of Jayson Marmalade as AquariusMan.
Let’s talk Batman v. Superman rumors! Yeah why the fuck not! It’s Monday night! I’m sitting in shorts, my Padmé Amidala baby doll, and my comfy crocs. Ain’t got nowhere to go. Ain’t got nothing better to do. The latest rumor involves newly christened OL Babe Khal Drogo (ever since the great booth flyby of 2014) and his role as Aquaman.
How is this for faith in your writers? Warner Bruhs got themselves two writers working on two different competing Aquaman scripts. Just keep throwing the fucking spaghetti at the wall, guys. Some of it is bound to stick. I mean…right?
All the characters! All of them in
Justice League Batman v Superman. Jason Momoa has reportedly been cast as Aquaman in the flick by the Gang of Bros. I’m for it. Throw that dude on a sick Sea Horse, and he can go around Marauding and shit.
Good guy Zack Snyder. If reports are to be believed, it seems he is salvaging the man behind Game of Thrones’ Khal Drogo from the trash heap. And thank goodness! Those pectoral muscles need to glisten upon the big screen. (In another movie outside of Conan which the Dude and I sadly saw together. We had a fun time though.) It seems a bit too obvious, but Jason Momoa is a logical Doomsday. Right?
(Editor’s Note: Much like for Thor, OL recruited the majestic metal ownage of Chris Goodwin to review Conan. A stalwart appreciator of Conan and his mythos, we wouldn’t have anyone else review it. You can see more of his writing at RBM.)
Since the colossal success of The Lord of the Rings, studio execs have been trying to bank on the grand-scale epicness perfected by Peter Jackson. He managed to take the works of Tolkien to a level never dreamed possible while sticking true to the story and pacing them beautifully. Why other directors can’t follow suit is beyond me. These days they feel the need to bombard their audiences with quick/random cuts, grand swooping shots from the sky, and random scenarios that seem to say “hey, what do ya think of this?”. Sadly, the 2011 take on the classic epic Conan: The Barbarian did just that.
