Quite fittingly, they're using the "underwater Conan" look, with tattoos to look like his classic costume

@squalleon: Not really, the photo is bleached out. It's like Diana's costume looking monotonic when it was bleached out. Arthur's hair has blonde streaks, his trident and top armor are gold and his pants are green.

I don't have a problem with the costume but the tattoos. And it doesn't matter if it is bleached out or not since these are probably the same filters they are gonna use in the movie too. Because up to now everything we saw looks dark and bleak, from the teaser to the images and from the rumors to the already established MoS.

The Dc universe doesn't work well for me when they try to get "dark".

fitting look for the tone. With predictable results. MOS made the DKT look like a 1970s family superhero movie.

Aaand the only thing I paid attention to was the Super Seven clip with the 5'4" Batman.

And DC continued to spite that their team book was second place.

@squalleon: fair enough, I'm not a fan of DC's choice of style either, but maybe Terrio writes some jokes for us. I didn't think MoS tried to be as dark as so many people make it out to be. I think they tried to be humorous, but the jokes just fell flat.

I do need Superman saving someone not named Lois in this movie though. I get that Singer went overboard with Superman saving and not fighting, but now they've taken us to the other side with Superman fighting and not saving.

Get a Morrison-esque scene of Superman taking time out to care about the little things, like someone contemplating suicide.

I think they'll save that for the Aquaman movie. It's a great scene though. I remember that for me it was the first very first portrayal of Aquaman being a badass. I don't think they can every fully fix the damage that was done by Superfriends.

I have said it before and I will say it again. I didn't use to hate MoS and I still don't. But I think it failed as a movie in general, not just as a Superman movie. Because when you preach for 2 hours about hope and yet your story gets darker and darker and even your ebodiment of hope ends up gloomy and a killer, you have done something very very wrong :P

Agreed. DC must find a balance, but from what I have seen up to now, I don't see it happening. I guess I have to shallow that Superman won't get a good modern movie for a while :P

How does having a tattoo equate to "bleak and dark." A little ink doesn't make you a downer.

What he said. I like the design, and there are aspects of it that make me go "Oh look, it's Aquaman", but those are more in the details. It does feel like the usual Momoa look his characters tend to get, and not sure I like the tribal/savage look they're for with Aquaman (if I wanted to get nit picky, I'd like to know how he managed to get tattoos while residing in the water most of the time, especially since new tattoos are not supposed to be submerged in water and also that his skin shouldn't be penetrable like that).

Maybe he got the tattoos on land with some sort of Atlantean tool that is specifically designed to pierce their skin?

Or maybe he's magic and they came with age. I think Aqualad (Kaldur,) had something like that happen with his own tattoos.

The tattoos combined with the edgy 90s armor and the bleak, bleached out colors and filters equate to dark and bleak.

My problem with the tattoos is that they look plain rediculous for my taste imo. He is a king for f@ck's sake.

It's a promotional piece though. He's in a dark room from the look of things. I don't think that should count towards it being considered bleak just because the setting of a promotional piece.

And he's also a Warrior. He appeared in Justice League piercing skulls and having sharks go crazy on parademons.

@joker-lewinski: That look was NEVER going to translate into live action anyways. DC should have gone for a more drastic redesign anyways when they launched the New 52 rather than retaining the classic look. He's too clean cut otherwise, and no one would believe that he could hold up in a fight alongside Superman. But Mamoa and this look! There's no question about him being strong and intimidating.

I expected the classic look for some reason, but no this fits the set tone well. I can already tell he is going to be a beast. Unfortunately it's not very distinctive, and putting Mamoa into another half naked guy that's savage doesn't help. Still, looking forward to seeing Aquaman kick some ass.

Its another dark promotional piece. Why from all the pics and teasers we have got, no even one of them feautured bright or even normal colors. Even the Superman pic,the SUPERMAN pic, was in gotham, at night, where everything was colored in shades of grey and Superman's suit looked darker than the first one.

But a king formost. At least I don't see someone who I would trust with politics and as a leader. This pic screams of "Badass, barbarian brute", meaning every role Momoa has played and will probably play in the future, its a shame really, I hoped for a more Johns/Parker version of Aquaman. The noble leader, not the angsty, brooding one. We already have two of those...

I really don't like Mamoa as Arthur. I would've preferred something less Pacific Islander and more English since he's based off of King Arthur, but I can't complain.

P.S... He bleached the picture, the colors are bleached out. His pants are green.

King Arthur was a Saxon warlord.

Because Superman was in Gotham. Not Metropolis. Don't get me wrong, I'm kind of fed up with the filters, myself, but they're just that. Filters. Not to mention, I thought the suit looked brighter overall, just not in that picture.

Warrior-King, I would say, in equal parts. Remember, this is a young, fresh Aquaman. He'll grow as a character and as a person. Probably into the person you think he should be, but for that to happen he'll likely need to prove himself as a capable warrior and defender for his people. And I think you're judging him a bit too much on his looks, honestly. Whose to say he isn't every bit as noble as any other Aquaman? Because his hair is down? Because he doesn't wear armor? Because he has tattoos, which probably have some cultural background? And while it's possible he'll brood, depending on the nature of the character (torn between two worlds, and all that jazz,) I doubt he'll be "angsty." If anything, he'll just be more prone to punching people.

Looks badass but I wouldn't be able to tell that's aquaman if I wasn't told, and not liking the lack or color. Looks good though, that is a good translation from comics to the big screen that people should like. The look is gonna be a big part of showing people that aquaman doesn't suck anymore
