Aquaman director James Wan responds to a fan criticism surrounding the title character’s costume in the recently released poster for the film.
Aquaman is slowly but surely beginning its marketing campaign, and released an incredible new poster to kick off the audience anticipation. It didn’t take long for comic book fans to begin to nitpick the incredible poster, because that’s just the kind of people that we are. Wan, however, was having none of that and took to Twitter to respond to a, quite frankly ridiculous, complaint about Aquaman’s pants.
Yes, in a poster filled with dozens of CGI sharks and other badass sea animals, someone closed in on the pants.
Check out his response below!
Because he’s Jason Foockin’ Momoa!!! You want him wearing swimming trunks?? or pantless! He’s already half naked for goodness sake. Haha https://t.co/H06Nb42a3s

I wonder how people will react if Jason Momoa ends up wearing the classic Aquaman costume after all…
