Aquaman gets his well deserved and long overdue big screen makeover. It’s all courtesy of Batman V Superman costume designer Michael Wilkinson, who brings the character back to life.
Director Zack Snyder released the first photo of Jason Momoa as Aquaman costume on Friday. Say goodbye to the orange top, green tights and long blonde locks the character is known for, but the scale-inspired armor, tattoos and trident don’t look too shabby.
“It has been a thrill and an honor to bring this iconic character to life for a modern audience,” said Wilkinson in an interview with TooFab. “Zack Snyder has a brilliant vision for making this character powerful and relevant. I enjoyed designing a costume that reflects his vision and honors the character’s rich legacy.”
Aquaman, played by the Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa, is expected to make his appearance in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice alongside Wonder Woman (Gal Godot) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). How big of a role will the King of Atlantis play in the film is yet to be seen.
Momoa will also appear in the November 2017 Justice League film and a solo Aquaman film slated for July 2018.
