Everything you need to know about Aquaman
Posted 4th December 2018 by SockShop
|After years of teasers, Aquaman is finally getting his very own big-screen blockbuster. Since first appearing in DC Comics back in 1941, the aquatic superhero has become a favourite of comic book fans everywhere but despite Hollywood’s current obsession, Aquaman has never got his own film — until now.
|Technically, this isn’t Aquaman’s first appearance on the big screen. DC fans have been getting glimpses of the underwater hero in recent years after he appeared briefly in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and joined the rest of the Justice League in the 2017 film — but now fans finally get to find out more about this watery warrior…
Who’s in it?
Aquaman (AKA Arthur Curry) is played by Jason Momoa, the American actor who’s appeared as the superhero in those previous DC film universe outings. As well as Aquaman, Jason is perhaps best known for his role as Khal Drogo in HBO’s smash hit, Game of Thrones. He also played Conan the Barbarian, so it’s safe to say he’s got the experience for the role.
Amber Heard plays Mera, a superhero in her own right who just so happens to be Arthur’s love interest – while Willem Dafoe appears as Aquaman’s mentor Nuidis Vulko, in the actor’s first superhero role since playing the Green Goblin Spider-Man back in 2002.
Another actor with superhero movie history is Nicole Kidman. Nicole, who was in Batman Forever in 1995, plays Aquaman’s mother, Queen Atlanna.
