Since Justice League will start shooting this sunday, I think it's finally the right time to talk about Aquamomoa. I'll start the topic with this one.

I think WB and Snyder Co. will be pushing Diana and Arthur on Justice League. Thoughts?

Aquamoa! If it's the animated movies then meh.. I say that because "War" I really don't see how they exactly plan to adapt Flashpoint for a JL origin movie unless they mean incorporate elements like Atlantis vs Themyscira not much of an adaption though. I disliked the TOA animated movie but feel free to incorporate that trident into the movies. Story wise don't make Orm into the stereotypical Evil brother role have him straight out of the New52 comics.

@ecstaticgrace: Do you think it's a good move for them to dig deeper to Atlantis and Themyscira? Because there are larger threat than can lead them on teaming up? But I guess WB is pushing Aquaman if this is the main plot of JL.

That one scene he had in BvS was pretty badass.

@vinomonster: It really depends on how they do it. Because I could see the war stuff being handled well but I question the execution on how they get them to resolve it as well as ally up. The idea of them pushing Aquaman sounds great and I'm hoping he's shown real great.

Really? I thought it was kind of disappointing. I was hoping he would appear emerging out of the ocean in this epic, almost godzilla style arrival. What we got was a dude clearly trying to hold his breath underwater before a cgi swim from afar...

@ecstaticgrace: Will she possibly have a role/cameo as Mera in the Justice League movie?

They can't adapt Flashpoint right now so I'm guessing it'll be character and power elements maybe.

@rustyroy: I'm assuming Flashpoint elements mean Atlantis vs Themyscira.

@raw_material: With how early they casted her I'd be suprised if she wasn't. It's been heavily suggested by several sites that she would. I'm not sure if it's confirmed.

He's got quantifiable feats already. The BvS cameo demonstrated physicals adapted at least as deep as the Tonga Trench area where he was recorded (about 4.75 tons per square inch), and the supersonic swim.

I got no problem with the costume, but I wished they just made the armor more gold than green. The costume looks more Sea King than Aquaman to me.

@vinomonster: Not seeing how. Sea King has a completely different color palette.

The DCEU suit is Aquaman's classic colors just muted a bit to make it work on screen.

Only similarity Aquamoa and Sea King share is their hair shape.
