Poor Aquaman. It was hard for the King of the Seven Seas to overcome his reputation as a 1
Batman (Ben Affleck) gets to convey the famous insult in the Justice League, "Arthur Curry, I hear you can talk to fish." But it's hard to make fun of Momoa, talking fish or not. He combines this biker-bad-guy attitude with a magnetic charm that makes Aquaman credible as a hero and magnetic as a personality.
In the film, Momoa Curry, also known as Aquaman, described as "the reluctant ruler of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis … trapped in a battle between surface dwellers and his own people". He is half Atlantean and half human and has superhuman strength and the ability to manipulate ocean tides. He can also swim at supersonic speed and, of course, communicate with other aquatic animals. Two child actors, aged 9 and 13, were called to play him and reveal his troubled childhood as a boy who felt like an outsider on land and in the water.

Cast: Who is who?
News, rumors and theories on the plot
Who is the rogue in Aquaman? Aquaman's Comic-Nemesis Black Manta is played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. Black Manta has a lot of complicated background stories in the comics, so it's anyone's guess what you can get into the movie. He is also famous for his cartoon look, a black wetsuit with a fluffy alien-style helmet. And it looks as though the helmet will make it into the film: In February, director James Wan shared a photo of Abdul Mateen tape by talking in a trashcan and declaring it to be a "Chic way" is to simulate the inside of a certain big helmet. "
But do not think for a minute that Black Manta is the only villain Patrick Wilson playsaka ORM and Orm Marius Ocean Master's origin varies slightly in the comics to match Aquaman, but he shares a parent (sometimes father, sometimes mother) with the super-strong swimmer. "In fact, Wan says it's Orm, not Manta, who's the real villain." It's almost a very classic Shakespearean story about brother from another world versus brother from another world, "said Wan Entertainment Weekly," and it's really a classic story of sibling rivalry. "
How does Aquaman talk in the movie? ? It was OK in Aquaman's Super Friends to talk about underwater bubbles with fish, but that would be campy and laughable in a Serious Superhero Flick. Already in 2016, directorand said, "I love the idea of underwater talk, but with a real kind of sound and water quality." Expect a "sort of water, almost sonar / whale thing," said Wan. Aquaman will speak in human language, but with a "slight kind of underlay to this ping to it."
Is Aquaman's weapon a quident or a trident? In the Justice League, the hero wields a five-pointed weapon, officially known as "Quindent". That's not entirely wrong: Aquaman fought in the comics with this weapon. Butthe hero will get his trident back in stand-alone film.
Who will play Dolph Lundgren in Aquaman? The Swedish actor and martial artist, 60, will play King Nereus, the ruler of Xebel,. But there is a debate about how Nereus fits into the plot. In the comics, Nereus competes with Aquaman for the love of Mera, but Lundgren told the Las Vegas Review Journal that his Nereus is Mera's father. "We try to avoid a war between the surface (inhabitants) and the people of Atlantis," he said.
