GURL, TREAT YOURSELF.
Ugggghhh, I can't go on about this enough. I thought Momoa was inspired casting when I first heard of it, but actually seeing it I am just ;ahdlfhas;kdlfja. LOOK AT HIM. LOOK AT THOSE TATTOOS.
Also, credit to Snyder where credit is due. Aquaman is as big a deal in his universe as any of the Avengers are in Marvel. And Snyder took an A-list superhero who is blond and white and reimagined him as Polynesian. He gave us a Polynesian superhero, THIS IS SO IMPORTANT.
I'm a bit wary of investing myself emotionally in the upcoming DC film franchise, since Man Of Steel was such a disappointment, but I am SO EXCITED to see Momoa's Aquaman. I AM MORE EXCITED TO SEE AQUAMAN THAN I AM TO SEE BATMAN, WHO AM I, WHAT REALITY IS THIS. (Between being excited about Aquaman and being excited about the Penguin, DC on-screen properties have me so confused about life right now.)
Also, give me all of the fanart of Emilia Clarke as badass Sea-Khaleesi Mera. I need this so bad. And give me all the fanfic of Jason Momoa!Aquaman, and quickly, before movie canon ruins everything.
...Actually, I may have that last bit covered. I've already done the groundwork for an origin story based on Aquaman's Silver Age continuity and Momoa's own half-Hawaiian background and also Hawaiian mythology and history. I'm about to go to the field for the weekend, so I very well may come back with a completed story.
JASON MOMOA, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME.
