Comics on Film: Finally, People Are Excited About 'Aquaman'


Recommended Posts

We're now just a couple of short weeks away from the first early, public screenings of WB's Aquaman, directed by James Wan, starring Jason Momoa and Amber Heard, and based on the long-running DC Comics character. For years, Aquaman as a character has had to battle against perceptions from a public that loves expressing misguided opinions, painting him as a hero who is weak, whose powers are useless, whose villains are forgettable, and whose stories can't possibly have any relevance since they take place out in the ocean.
