This fan edit imagines Avengers Chris Hemsworth as Aquaman, replacing Jason Momoa as the Justice League hero for the DCEU movies.
Earlier this year, Marvel Studios released its first animated series What If…? on Disney Plus, giving fans a look at how certain stories within the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon would turn out if certain things were a little different thanks to the diverse playing field of the Multiverse. The MCU isn’t the only franchise looking to explore the concept, given that the DCEU will also tackle it with The Flash, with Michael Keaton back as Batman. In perhaps an intriguing What If…? scenario combining both franchises in question, Chris Hemsworth replaces Jason Momoa as Aquaman.
Created by Instagram user “Saarukan Suhanthan,” this concept design imagines this possible scenario. In the artwork, Chris Hemsworth can be seen as the DCEU version of Aquaman, taking over the role from Justice League star Jason Momoa. The What If…?-esque possibility of seeing him trading in his hammer for a trident is quite intriguing to say the least. You can see the concept with Chris Hemsworth below.
In this same What If…?-esque scenario, it would be fun to see Jason Momoa jump from the DCEU Aquaman role and replace Chris Hemsworth as Thor. If by some divine miracle, we see some sort of deal between Disney and Warner Bros. to crossover both Marvel and DC, it would perhaps open the portals from both Multiverses to explore such a crazy possibility.
While Jason Momoa is currently set to reprise his DCEU role as Arthur Curry in Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom, Chris Hemsworth will be back as the God of Thunder in Thor: Love and Thunder. Plot details for the Marvel Studios film are currently being kept under wraps. The project is said to be partly based on Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor comic book run, with Jane Foster becoming the new Thor.
Directed by Taika Waititi from a script he co-wrote with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, Love and Thunder stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, Christian Bale, Jaimie Alexander, Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn and Jeff Goldblum. Matt Damon, Sam Neill, Luke Hemsworth, Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, and Russell Crowe are also on board.
Thor: Love and Thunder is scheduled to hit theaters on July 8, 2022. Meanwhile, Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom is currently slated for December 16, 2022.
