auquaman staring vincent chaseMany times, art imitates life but today we have life that is imitating art. Call it self-fulfilling prophecy of the sorts as the mock-up poster of Vincent Chase from the fictitious show Entourage staring in this underwater superhero role of a lifetime – AQUAMAN. Sure, this was back in 2006 but you know long those prophecies can take to be fully realized but seriously, this movie made like Spiderman money!!!

And when I mean Spiderman, I’m talking about Tobey Maguire’s Spiderman not Andrew Garfield’s Amazing Spiderman. Check out the trailer to Aquaman.

As all kidding aside, we actually have an actor for Aquaman. Jason Momoa has been reported have landed this SPLASHY role. (Made a funny!!!) For me, I’ve only known him as Kohl Drago from the HBO series Game of Thrones. Prior to that or there about was the remake for Conan the Barbarian which I have not seen to date. A prior tv role had Jason on Stargate Atlantis which again I have not seen. Still, seeing Jason as Kohl on GoT was still impressive enough to see his screen appeal however, is he the Aquaman? Is Jason going to get his hair colored blonde? Will he be wearing the traditional orange and green colored costume? Will he have a hook for a hand or a hand made out of water? Still, I want to see an Aquaman wear no gloves. Seriously, wearing gloves underwater may look cool but has no practical application in life. I tried washing dishes with rubber gloves and once that water gets in there, no amount of superpowers will ever get rid of that icky feeling I felt. Putting that all aside, I am truly, truly happy that DC/Warner Bros. are getting their shit together. Plus, Aquaman is rumored to appear in the Batman v. Superman Dawn of Justice movie. From what I’ve read, it seems the tie in for Aquaman was the World Builder over the Indian Ocean as seen the Man of Steel. I see this as a downstairs neighbor who is pissed at you for not lowering the volume of your music but on a bigger scale. Someone not very happy!!!

We are coming to a new golden of superheroes on the big and small screen. I can not wait to see how this all plays out.

 aqua.jpgAs I remember my own memories of Aquaman in light of this news, I am still in awe of how one’s vision and dream can still endure after so many years. A great example is Star Trek and how so many people caught on to Roddenberry’s ideals and added their own take. With Aquaman, Paul Norris created him which served as a springboard for others to interpret, re-imagine, and add to the Aquaman mythos. While he is not the top three in the DC Universe, he is probably one of the most underated heroes. 

Way back in the days of Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure through Filmation to the Super Friends with Wendy and Marvin and other incarnation including Justice League on Cartoon Network, Aquaman has still managed to endure. From being the lamest superhero who can talk to fish to the later version of a more darker yet heroic Aquaman who loses his hand while saving his son, Paul Norris has shared this with us. Below are just a few clips pulled from youtube from a short bio of Paul Norris, an Aquaman tribute, and to funny bits of the King of Atlantis.
