    I'm more used to the Marvel Universe than I am to DC's. So, I don't really accept alternate versions of characters as readily as the DC faithful.

    But, he doesn't even look like him.

    Aquaman was without the Mail Shirt all thruout the 90's in the comics and the DCAU.

    Momoa's gone Blond before but you can't ask a dude to dye his beard completely.

    This is a fair compromise: 90's Arthur/Orin with Blond streaks wielding the nu52's version's trident.

    Mamoa looks great. The lord of the seven seas he is.

    I think Mamoa looks great I just hope the beard doesn't come back in the comics.

    Momoa looks pretty badass. It seems DC is trying very very hard to be grim and edgy.
    Well, at least I'm glad he isn't dressed in Orange and Green. That would have looked ridiculous.

    Still the look doesn't scream "AQUAMAN". Guess I'll have to wait and see how it translates to the big screen.

    That look is TRÈS Peter David Aquaman, but based on the picture Momoa rocks it better than most of the comics ever did, and mops the floor with the DCAU-version. His beard and hair gives him a kind of regal ancient legend look, like some iteration of Poseidon or Neptune. Also, casting Aquaman with a Hawaiian-America actor is pretty damn inspired.

    Definitely more inspired by his 90's design. I thought they would go with something like this but I'm still pleasantly surprised by how cool it looks actually seeing it all come together. Wish we got a full body shot so we could see his legs, that filter makes it hard but the pants look green and I would like to see what footwear the King of Atlantis is rocking!

    In a world where blonde and red haired males are portrayed almost exclusively as bad guys, comics were the last place where you could see many blonde haired and a smattering of red haired male characters who weren't evil, unlikeable and utterly detestable.

    It's a great costume design, but it's also an expected shame that they didn't even consider keeping Aquaman blonde.

    I think Momoa looks great. As for the debate of live action versus comic incarnation. No live action version has ever looked like the comic version. They share some similarities but ultimately they look different than the first incarnations of comic characters.

    The body tats correspond to Jason Mamoa's heritage. In Polynesian tattoo designs, shark teeth usually represents shelter or coverage, guidance, power, ferocity and adaptability.

    I think it's cool that they are making changes to the character to reflect the actor. Creativity at it's finest.

    I thought they would give him a few light/blond streaks in his hair, and it looks like they did.

    It looks good to me and I actually don't get the complaints on this. When they cast "Khal Drogo" Momoa, it seemed pretty obvious to me, that this Aquaman was going to be more PAD style, than classic.

    Yeah, I really like that bit.

    It seems pretty clear to me that WB looked at the JL, and noticed a problem -- they were an all Anglo team (+one green guy). So, they decided to remedy this a bit, with casting Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Mamoa as Aquaman, and brought in Cyborg (Ray Fisher) to be part of the cinematic JL. I do feel bad for individual fans, that may not be getting their dream version of their fav characters, but I think this League will look great together on screen.

    I'm hoping the John Stewart GL rumor is also true.
