First Look as Jason Momoa as Aquaman in Batman vs Superman

As Batman v Superman has recently wrapped up with shooting, fans are raving in anticipation for what it’s going to look like!

Today, Zack Snyder gives us our first real look of Jason Momoa as Aquaman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!

Like prior costume designs for Cavill, Affleck, and Gadot – Momoa’s Aquaman costume blends comic book inspirations (especially the New 52 version of the character) with traditional Polynesian body modification and classical battle gear. Unlike Batman, who is going to be relying heavily on tech, armor, and strategy in upcoming appearances, Aquaman’s super-strength, among other powers, allows the Atlantean to enter into battle with slightly less protective gear. Since the character is expected to be an agile fighter in and out of the water, it should come as no surprise that Momoa’s costume is equal parts armored plating, leather straps, and tribal ink.

Tonally, the picture is also a match for the images of Superman, Batman, and Gal Gadot that were featured at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 – further embracing the gritty approach to DC’s shared universe that Snyder introduced in Man of Steel (as opposed to Marvel’s slightly more colorful cinematic palette).

In fact, even though Affleck’s Batman spawned a series of “Sad Batman” memes, the Aquaman image is easily the darkest (and outright intimidating) character reveal so far – one that should help quiet skeptics that were still hung up on the idea that Aquaman would wear fish scale tights.
