"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - 'Aquaman' Revealed

Sneak Peek the first official image of actor Jason Momoa as 'Aquaman', posted on Twitter by "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" director Zack Snyder:

"Things are going to be a little different, " said Momoa about his interpretation of Aquaman.

"When I first went in I met with Zack. His idea is pretty amazing. What he has planned for the DC world and for ... definitely for 'Aquaman' is something that, you know... I think I was brought on for a certain reason and they got some really cool plans for him. I'm really excited for everyone to see it..."

Momoa said the role is important to him because of his Polynesian roots and its connection to Hawaiian gods.

"...I don't think he is going to be blonde or white...I hope you watch with an open heart."

According to reports, 'Aquaman' will be in "Batman v Superman" because the fishes were affected due to the 'World Engine' under the ocean, as seen in "Man of Steel".

Unlike Marvel's 'Atlantean'-human hybrid 'Namor the Sub-Mariner', 'Aquaman' is all human, created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, debuting in "More Fun Comics" #73 (November 1941)...

...initially as a backup feature in DC's anthology titles, then starred in several volumes of a solo title. 

"...the story must start with my father, a famous undersea explorer — if I spoke his name, you would recognize it. My mother died when I was a baby, and he turned to his work of solving the ocean's secrets. 

"His greatest discovery was an ancient city, in the depths where no other diver had ever penetrated. My father believed it was the lost kingdom of 'Atlantis'. He made himself a water-tight home in one of the palaces and lived there, studying the records and devices of the race's marvelous wisdom. 

"From the books and records, he learned ways of teaching me to live under the ocean, drawing oxygen from the water and using all the power of the sea to make me wonderfully strong and swift. 

"By training and a hundred scientific secrets, I became what you see — a human being who lives and thrives under the water..."

During the late 1950's and 1960's superhero-revival period known as the 'Silver Age', Aquaman was a founding member of the 'Justice League of America'.
