When it comes to making superhero movies, having the right director and casting choices are all the difference sometimes. Jason Momoa being cast as Aquaman may just be that difference now.
For many people, Momoa wasn’t the first choice of actors when it came to playing Aquaman in the DC Movie Universe, but the first pictures of him as the lead role ended up being all the convincing needed. Fans like Zeca Oliveira know that this is particularly important considering that there has been a reputation for Aquaman being the “inferior” superhero in DC, yet Momoa seems to think director Zack Snyder knows exactly what he’s doing.
Momoa, in an interview, said that even though there’s no official script yet for the movie he definitely listens to all of Snyder’s ideas and trusts him with the movie. Combined with Snyder’s other big works such as 300, Momoa completely feels that Snyder was the right choice when it came to directing a solo Aquaman film, in addition to having two Justice League films to deal with as well.
As for Aquaman himself, he may very well make his first on-screen appearance in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, though in a small role. The Polynesian tattoos on Aquamn, which Momoa himself also has, may also have a significant role in the film, which is trying to flesh out diversity in other future films.
