Now let’s get one things straight, even though his Conan relaunch flubbed, Jason Momoa looked hot as Conan. He looked hot in Baywatch, he looked hot in Stargate, he looked hot as Khal Drogo. Let’s be real, he would look hot as a UPS delivery man or a clerk at Chipotle. You would eat at that Chipotle every day, be honest.
But now he’s done the impossible. He’s made Aquaman look hot as revealed in a Zack Snyder tweet.
Snyder, you may recall, is directing a film called Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (League) in which Aquaman is expected to appear, as a warm up lap around the pool for Justice League part one in 2017. Since the Aquaman film doesn’t come out until 2018, and there is a small chance that in three years Jason Momoa will no longer be quite as hot due to the whole vicissitudes of time thing, it is good that he will appear in Dawn of Justice League because we need as much of this as possible and soon. Also #unitetheseven…nice little branding. Will we be seeing Jon Jonz in a Snyder tweet soon?
Anyway, Arthur Curry is suddenly a very intriguing character in the coming DCCU (DC cinematic universe.)
