With Justice League finally in theaters, audiences will finally get a better taste of one of DC’s most powerful heroes, Aquaman. Although the film itself leaves much to be desired in developing some of the newer characters, Jason Momoa brings a swagger and charisma to the role of Arthur Curry that should have fans excited for his standalone film next year.
One of the numerous powers of Aquaman is his ability to communicate with undersea life. In one of the most-marketed lines from the film, we hear Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) tell Arthur Curry, “I hear you can talk to fish.”
Although we do not see Aquaman exhibit his undersea communication powers with fish and other underwater creatures in Justice League, we do see some of his strength and agility exhibited during some of the action scenes.
Recently, Momoa spoke with Gamespot to discuss the film, to which he was asked about whether or not Aquaman can talk to fish:
“I think he can hear them and they can hear him. On a larger level, when he was a kid, he knew he had something special, because he could hear them, and they could hear him.”
Justice League provides a small sample size of what underwater life is like for Aquaman and the Atlanteans. The Conjuring and Furious 7 director James Wan has the responsibility of diving deeper into the world of Atlantis and further exploring this side of the DC Extended Universe with Aquaman.
Here is the synopsis for Justice League:
“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J.K. Simmons, Ciarán Hinds, Amber Heard, Joe Morton and Billy Crudup.
Justice League is in theaters now.
The 5 Most ‘Fun’ Superhero Films
Justice League is hitting theaters today and excitement is in the air for this bigger than life superhero film. Warner Bros. needs Justice League to be a massive success that will pave a new path for the future of DC Films, and the film promises to be a more lighthearted fare (at least compared to something like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) that is fun. “Fun” is a term often thrown around a lot when describing Marvel’s films, which aim to hit lighter notes, something that seems to work to great effect for them.
It is a term mostly used to describe a style that doesn’t take itself too seriously and leans into the escapist side of the superhero genre. With the release of such a huge film like Justice League it is a perfect time to explore a few of the best films that can easily be described by the word “fun.”
