Yes. My long-time fantasy is now, according to reports, several steps closer to becoming a reality. According to an article appearing over on ComicBookMovie.com, Warner Brothers is said to be seriously considering releasing an Aquaman movie within the next four to five years. What’s more, this movie will also be given a budget in the range, again according to the article, of $200 million. Finally, Leonardo DiCaprio’s production studio, Appian Way, is said to behind the whole thing.
I have always maintained that Aquaman was one of DC Comics’ most under appreciated, misunderstood, and disrespected characters. Often the butt of cruel jokes, Aquaman very rarely gets the star treatment that he so obviously deserves. C’mon, any man who’s secure enough to wear a bright green and orange costume is cool with me. Additionally, one of (and not the only, as many people believe. because they are idiots!) Aquaman’s powers is the ability to talk to fish. Have you seen Jaws? That was ONE shark, fucking up a whole damn town. Imagine an ARMY of Jaws sharks…controlled by Aquaman. Batman and Captain America wouldn’t stand a chance…
I really can’t tell you how truly excited I am to know that the world is now on the cusp of finally having a big-budget Aquaman movie. My nipples are literally tingling with anticipation. I think that given the proper treatment, with a solid script and a decent actor playing the lead role, an Aquaman movie could finally get my guy the respect that he deserves. Can. Not. Wait.
So what are your thoughts? Are you as excited as I am to hear of this news? And who should play the role of Aquaman? Speak your mind in the comments!
