Avengers star Chris Hemsworth transforms into the King of the Seven Seas in a new concept design that sees the Marvel actor with Jason Momoa’s Aquaman suit.
Jason Momoa’s Aquaman proved modern comic book movies can embrace the silliness of their source material while providing an explosive blockbuster adventure that appeals to all ages. However, an interesting new concept design imagines Avengers star Chris Hemsworth as Arthur Curry for the DC Extended Universe. Although it looks like Hemsworth won’t be leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe any time soon, the concept is still fascinating to think about.
The artwork from digital artist ‘saarukan.psd’ shows Avengers star Chris Hemsworth in the gold Aquaman armor that Jason Momoa’s Arthur Cury dons at the end of his first standalone movie. In the caption, the artist explained that he thinks Hemsworth would be the perfect choice for a brooding take on the DC Comics hero, focusing on Arthur ruling Atlantis. The artwork shows Hemsworth with his short hair from Thor: Ragnarok and an impressive beard. Take a look below.

AQUAMAN. I think Jason Momoa plays Aquaman really well, but my alternative casting is @chrishemsworth with out a doubt. I think he could pull off a brooding highly serious Aquaman, but also say some good one liners every now and then. The DCEU kind of took a route with Aquaman that I didn’t think I would like as much as I did, but I think if you tone down the comedy and focus more on Arthur Curry as a ruler you can have the perfect Aquaman, and I think Hemsworth is the best choice. – What do you think, how can I improve? – – #aquaman #arthurcurry #chrishemsworth #thenew52 #atlantis #dceu #dc #dccomics #recasting #geoffjohns #justiceleague #likeforlikes #throneofatlantis #photoshop #followforfollowback #like4likes #followme #digitalart
