Aquaman Gets His Own ‘Justice League’ Motion Poster

Justice League AquamanAquaman takes center stage in a new motion poster for Justice League, as DC continues work on what they call “Aquaman Week”.

The new motion-poster features a profile of Jason Momoa’s take on the aquatic superhero, along with half of the Aquaman character logo to add color to an otherwise black-and-white image:

As it turns out, this is only one piece of a larger promotional campaign on DC’s part to explain why Aquaman is awesome. Jason Momoa shared a short video explaining that there’s more to his character than being able to talk to fish:

It’s also likely that part of the reason DC is focused on Aquaman first is because the character’s standalone movie is going to be the first to hit theaters after Justice League. The only members of DC’s superhero team that don’t have movies in priority development right now – at least as far as we know – are Superman and Cyborg, although it’s worth stressing that there are definitely plans for those characters. In the meantime, expect there to be big pushes for Batman, Wonder Woman, and the Flash, as all three will be getting movies sometime in the next three-or-so years.

Justice League unites on November 17, 2017. The superhero epic features a cast that includes Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne (Batman), Henry Cavill as Kal-El/Clark Kent (Superman), Gal Gadot as Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), Jason Momoa as Orin/Arthur Curry (Aquaman), Ezra Miller as Barry Allen (The Flash), Ray Fisher as Victor Stone (Cyborg), Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as General Antiope, J. K. Simmons as Commissioner James ‘Jim’ Gordon, Joe Morton as Dr. Silas Stone, Amber Heard as Mera, Billy Crudup as Dr. Henry Allen, and Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. Julian Lewis Jones and Michael McElhatton are also in the movie in unspecified roles.

Previous1 of 6

Henry Cavill Superman Man of SteelSuperman is a pop culture icon. The character was introduced to the masses in 1938. Eventually after radio shows, serials and animated adaptations, Superman became a movie icon following the release 1978’s Superman: The Movie. The seminal superhero film, directed by Richard Donner and starring Christopher Reeve, was followed by three sequels and one spin-off. In 2006, Bryan Singer brought Superman back to the silver screen with Superman Returns. The movie was divisive so it was back to the drawing board for Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Eventually, Zack Snyder was brought on board for the next iteration of Superman: Man of Steel.

Man of Steel was released in 2013 to decent reviews. The movie was a financial hit, but instead of doing a direct sequel, Warner Bros. went with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. That movie has come and gone and Justice League is on the horizon. Last year, it was also announced that a sequel to Man of Steel was coming along. There has been no word on that movie other than a few rumors here and there. This may be due to the situation that Superman was left in at the end of Batman v Superman, which will be resolved in Justice League.

There are many reasons why Man of Steel deserves a sequel. Here are a few reasons Warner Bros. needs to fast-track the project. Click Next to get started!
