Batman V Superman: Aquaman gets a whole new look

Aquaman rumours in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice are all true, despite being stupid.

According to leading rumour-house Schmoes Know, director Zack Snyder will be playing to Jason Momoa’s surf bro strengths (his first acting role was Baywatch Hawaii and before that he worked part-time in the surf shop) in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

The site reports that “he’s going to look like a surfer essentially with tribal tattoos and all that jazz.”

All of which sounds like an aftercare nightmare.

Bro, if you don’t stay out of the water, they just won’t heal properly…

They also add that an earlier rumour about the whales that visit Clark Kent post oil rig fire in Man Of Steel being sent by Aquaman is apparently true. Which sounds stupid and is therefore perfectly plausible.

Just to clarify:

“Aquaman sent the whales to save Supes and make sure he was OK, which makes sense considering we never actually see how Supes gets back to shore in the film. He sees the whales and then it cuts to him walking on land.”

It does make sense, I mean he’s virtually indestructible and he can fly, but we’re never explicitly shown how he made it back to shore. Total plothole.
