Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder has been quiet on social media for the past several months, but he returned in a big way late Thursday night. He did so by revealing the first image of Jason Momoa as DC’s Aquaman. See the first Jason Momoa Aquaman movie photo in full below.
Here’s Snyder’s Tweet of Jason Momoa in the Aquaman movie.

And here’s a bigger version of the image.
So what’s “Unite the Seven?” Well, it probably refers to the Seven Seas, considering Snyder’s tweet says “There is only one true king.” And Aquaman is the king of the sea. Whether or not that refers to something that happens just in the Aquaman movie, Batman v Superman or maybe even Justice League, we’ll have to wait and see. (Get it?)
Jason Momoa is likely to first appear as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which opens in March of 2016. After that, he’ll be in Justice League Part One in November 2017, the solo Aquaman movie on July 27, 2018, and then Justice League Part Two in June 2019. So we’re going to get very used to this face.
As for the image itself, the armor is pretty awesome and functional. That new trident – which isn’t really a trident since it has five points – is pretty bad ass too. It’ll be interesting to see what fans think of it.
Snyder himself has a very high opinion of Aquaman as a character. Last summer, he called a Detroit radio station to talk about him long before any of this Jason Momoa stuff was officially confirmed:
You guys were disparaging, a little bit, Aquaman…I don’t want to give anything away about the movie or anything like that but Aquaman has some cool abilities. People are like, “Oh what? Does he talk to animals? Cause that seems like what he does. Or fish?” The cool thing with Aquaman is his Trident. So you have to realize that could cut the flesh of Superman if they came in contact. That’s a thing that’s in the canon. He’s super strong cause of course he can exist at these super deep depths so when he comes up here he’s crazy strong. Anyway, not to say he’s in my movie or anything like that but he has the potential to be bad ass, that’s all I’m saying.
Well, we know he’s in your movie now, Zack. You just revealed the first image of Jason Momoa as Aquaman to the world.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
