10 Reasons Behind The ‘Aquaman’ Hype

10. Writing team


Aquaman is a baby of Geoff Johns, the DC Comics maestro who has taken an enlarged role guiding the DCEU post-Batman v Superman. Here, he gets a story credit along with director James Wan, with the script going to Will Beall (Gangster Squad). It’s safe to say Johns is heavily invested in the character creatively and professionally and it shows in the caliber of people who have assembled around the film.

  • “He’s is the first big-screen water superhero.”

    I thought the Mariner from “Waterworld” held that title?

    I’m not sure the cast is really a plus here…starting with Momoa, who hasn’t done much of anything with his opportunity since he died in GoT Season 1. It might be interesting for creating new concepts for an underwater adventure, but every day that passes, I’m less enthused about it.

    • Shut your fly trap Marveltard, think about Chris Evans when he did TFA or Hemsworth on Thor, they had zero star power. Neither does Boseman, he did that trash Egypt film.

      • Axxell

        Wow…Triggered much? The only one who wasn’t well known when he started was Hemsworth, and he’s gone on to grab just as many roles in less time than Momoa has, even counting out the MCU ones (you shouldn’t talk about “trash” when defending Momoa…did you forget Conan? Of course you did…)

      Which GOT alumn has done better, Momoa or Finn?
      I’d say Momoa has the larger fanbase.

      • Axxell

        Are we talking TV actors or are we talking about movie stars?


    This is an awesome article. Thanx Sam.

    Everything seems to be coming together swimmingly for this movie. It’s my most anticipated superhero movie by far.
