Stills are starting to be released of the upcoming AQUAMAN movie from Warner Bros. (December 2018) - I was initially very forgiving of Momoa being cast as Aquaman, mainly because I let my LUST for him get in the way of my objectivity!  But these new stills from the movie are just... "bothering" me:

In the first still, you have Momoa as Aquaman on the LEFT confronting his half-brother Orm, played by Patrick Wilson on the RIGHT... with Wilson being the one who looks ever inch like Aquaman!


In the next photo (cover of Entertainment Weekly mag) you have Nicole Kidman cutting a portrait of a BEAUTIFUL Atlanna, and a stunning Mera, with, again, Momoa as Aquaman looking just out of place to me!!

They found a guy who would have been near perfect as Namor, and they cast him as Aquaman.

In that first picture, "Arthur" looks like "Orm" and "Orm" looks like "Arthur".

I watched Momoa in BRAVEN, a 2018 film he produced, on iTunes as a $.99 rental.  Although the plot was fine for what it was, he was...um...terrible.  No charm and little charisma.  Outside of GAME OF THRONES, I just don't know what the appeal is with him.  I thought he was all kinds of wrong in JL.  He's no Arther Curry I've ever known.

I don't see Momoa as Namor either, if he was 5'7 he might be able to play
wolverine though.

If my son expresses interest, I may see this with him... my only hope is in the directing talents of James Wan, someone I believe to be infinitely more talented than, say, Zack Snyder or Joss Whedon...
