Jason Momoa Will Indeed Play Aquaman in Batman v Superman

Jason Momoa, Aquaman

It's been rumored forever, but now it has been confirmed by Variety! Jason Momoa will be everyone's favorite Atlantean, coming up in the very next DC film...

The fact that he's showing up in Batman v Superman makes us very curious as to how the other members of the Justice League are making their cameos in the narrative, but only time will tell!

Morning Roundup: This Smaug Cannot Be Contained by The Hobbit!

Tomorrow is Dragon Appreciation Day! We’re getting a head start on the celebrations with this loving paper sculpture of Smaug the Terrible from artist Victoria at VM Creations. Not only is Smaug slithering forth from the pages of a Danish edition of The Hobbit, but there is a realistically terrified Bilbo in attendance. Check out more of the photos here!

But Morning Roundup isn’t wholly dedicated to dragons. We’ve also got Aquamen, Magic cards, and even some early work from David Lynch—enjoy!

[Plus a very angry groundhog.]

Superheroes Dropped Into Classic Works of Art!

Wonder Woman, Lucien HenryOver at Worth1000.com, they frequently hold art and photoshopping contests, and one of their favorite categories is “Superhero ModRen,” where they encourage fans to put superheroes into their favorite works of art. Some of the results on this are truly stunning, and they’ve run the category half a dozen times or so. Here are a few favorites from our end! (The one to the right would be Wonder Woman imposed on Lucien Henri Grangérard’s “Adolesence.”)

An Aquaman Movie Before Wonder Woman? DC Sketches Out Its Film Plans

Yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter featured an interview with Diane Nelson, the new Entertainment Chief at DC following a recent shake-up. While Nelson was candid about what projects DC is focusing on (“Sandman is right on top.”) the interview further muddled what is already an unclear cinematic objective from the DC universe.

Reader’s Guide to the New DC Universe: Aquaman

Each weekday, Tim will take a look at what we know about each of the upcoming 52 new comics from the September DC relaunch, one series at a time. Today: AQUAMAN!

The Concept and Characters: Everyone knows Aquaman. He’s the blonde guy from the Super Friends. He was part of a long-running joke in Entourage. He’s starred in his own failed pilot for the WB.

Part of me thinks that this whole DC relaunch is a way to scale up the kind of process Geoff Johns is using to make Aquaman matter. Because it’s like this: though Aquaman is a founding member of the Justice League, and one of the DC characters the general public has the most knowledge about (after Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, and maybe Green Lantern or the Flash), he’s also the character most likely to be used as a punchline. The guy swims around and talks to fish. That doesn’t lend itself to superhero machismo.

Fish from Space!

Space FishIt’s that time again! A time when I dive into the world of the greatest anthropomorphized creatures in the science fiction and fantasy genres. This time: Fish-People. It seems only natural that science fiction would deal with the notion of a fish with legs. After all, from a basic evolutionary perspective, every one of us is a fish with legs. We’re all fish-people! So as a tribute to our own humanity (and fishiness) I’ve netted the 7 best Fish-People from land, sea, and outer space.
