So I guess they're just gonna steer right into the movie being JLA part 1 then
>we get a full, detailed view of Aquaman before batman
DC not riding batman's cock? What?
So does WB believe that making Aquaman into underwater Batman the only way to save his public image?
So glad DCCU is going to crash and burn with this shit.
Here's a question: Why is it that SJWs ride Marvel so fucking much with wanting to make every next character black, but DC gets to float with an almost entire cast in various shades of white.
Like movie Thorin but with less clothes?
I am not a fan of the costume, but it's a direct product of a tonal shift into grittiness that I also don't like so it's to be expected. I guess I don't mind the casting but like >>69641386 said, it doesn't make a lot of sense for this guy to be called ARTHUR. Maybe they'll just give him a made-up Atlantean name. I mean they may as well, with Man of Steel they already pretty much threw out any chance of this universe resembling something familiar.
>with Man of Steel they already pretty much threw out any chance of this universe resembling something familiar
Sounds pretty familiar to me.
He's forming a team to uncover who's been stealing all the color from the DC universe. You have no idea how boring and lifeless the oceans are when all those beautiful fish are suddenly brown and grey.
Neat costume and all but GOOD LORD IS SNYDER AFRAID OF COLOR
>maybe the Atlanteans are all polynesian-y
Robinson and Taylor had them as Underwater Malaysian-Filipinos.
Sure, there's some story and tone choices that jive with a modern age paradigm, but the visuals, core themes, fine details, everything has been altered to create something else that is, surprise surprise, Hollywood-embarrassed of the source material. Meanwhile, over at Marvel, raccoon with a machine gun etc.
I like the -idea- of playing into the Polynesian roots with the tattooing, but the execution's just not doing it for me. And yeah, fuck the continued insistence on desaturating everything. Otherwise, sure, Momoa looks like a beastly Momoa
>Flash is neon red and the comic relief
Even CW Flash isn't a brighter shade of red.
What hope does Snyderverse Flash have?
Because DC isn't catering to them and inviting them in. You only get that lens of critique when those critics care enough to view your work.
Or because none of these DC movies are even out yet.
Aquaman is supposed to be half-human half-Atlanteen right?
What racial characteristics do people in the fictional underwater kingdom of Atlantis have?
Also if Jason Momoa introduced himself as Authur Curry, I wouldn't think anything of it.
You know damn well that Captain Marvel won't ever be in the DCCU.
They already have one Superman. What need do they have of Magic Superman?
Also, I'm pretty sure with the whole "realism at any cost" mandate they have, magic is out of the window.
some shit looks stupid and aquamans costume is one of them. also people can say what they want about 'hollywood' but aquaman has been an embarassment to a good chunk of the comic community for decades.
oh its hollywood that made him long haired, shirtless with armor on one arm, and a grizzled beard removing the orange scales out of embarrasment. yeeeeeh sure and i suppose if they replaced a hand with a fucking harpoon it wouldnt count. cos its HOLLYWOOD thats embarassed.
Yeah, just like how Batman became a gravel-voiced tacticool guy after the recent batman movies...
Oh wait, that didn't happen.
The only good news out of DC being terrible at keeping its movie universe connected, is that it doesn't spill into the comics.
You may be a big guy, but you're not a right guy.
>They already have one Superman. What need do they have of Magic Superman?
so Superman can fight Magic Superman and then they become friends and bro out?
>realism at any cost
>movie about a space alien, autistic detective superbat, literally a demigod, space cop, atlantean, cyborg, and SPEEDFORCE
I don't see why magic wouldn't fit
>And how, if at all, will Black Adam fit in with the wider DC universe? “It was all agreed that the worlds are all interconnected… One day you will see Black Adam go at it with Superman or Batman or any of the DC characters. But that said, there’s a great independence to Black Adam from the DC world, allowing us to inject, not only viciousness, but also winking humour.”
That coat is pretty pure sex but I like Bane better when his outerwear is truer to his lucha roots
Honestly even though their movies continue to fail me, I've been continuously enjoying DC comics.
I would like to remind everyone in the thread before it gets inevitably hostile that DC has little control over what the people at WB come up with.
>Tatooing most of the costume on
First fucking mistake. It's almost like they have never made a cape flick. Do you know what happens between every cape flick? THE COSTUME GETS UPDATED OR CHANGES.
Sometimes its for practicality reasons, sometimes its to update the look for whats in fashion. Sometimes its simply because DESIGNERS GONNA DESIGN.
Kinda hard to design something over and over when its CUT INTO THE CHARACTER'S SKIN.
>I don't see why magic wouldn't fit
All those things can be worked into "SCIENCE".
There are levels of suspension of disbelief, anon.
It's always bothersome when people say "Well, it has INSERT ONE NOT-REAL THING, why not have TOTALLY INSANE NOT-REAL THING?"
It's like if in Jurassic Park one of the characters flies away on a broomstick. Why not, says your logic. We can't clone dinosaurs, so it's all the same if magic shows up
Minor characters don't get redesigns each movie because people would be confused and think they're separate characters.
They're still not confident about Aquaman yet, so he's just going to be there in like a council chamber scene or something. Only if he gets a standalone will he have an updated costume and I really doubt that.
>some shit looks stupid and aquamans costume is one of them
Why is orange and green more stupid than a guy who wears an American flag for an outift? Also, superheroes are absurd. If you think the problem is that Superheroes aren't believably realistic enough then you're the type who keeps fueling the shitty Nolan fad.
I love it, honestly.
Looks bretty accurate to me.
All right Snyder, let's see how this works out.
>Traditionally one of if not the most colorful superheroes of the silver age
>A man trying to balance his life as a man on the surface and a kind underwater
>Wife and (sometimes) kid make him a family man, something other early superheroes lacked
>Aside from the Death of a Prince storyline, typically a pretty happy dude
>A bit of goofiness to balance out some of the aspects of the JLA that take themselves a little too seriously in the face of a team
>Nah, let's make him angry and grey
Well we're not dealing with "one not real thing" versus "totally insane not real things", we're dealing with "seven already totally insane not real things" and "additional insane not real things."
I don't know why people are more willing to accept bullshit superscience than magic, but they really shouldn't be. But we already are going to have literal Greek gods with Wonder Woman, so I don't know how "magic" tops that.
Science is the understanding of concepts, so powerful magicians, gods and sorcerer's would would understand it as a science.
Magic is literally the unexplainable and impossible. As soon as someone figures it out and understands the rules and limitations of a force it becomes a science.
If magic and Greek Gods became real today 10 years from now we'd all consider it science.
Get over it you autistic fucking retard.
So early rumors had Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg as the Justice League, who's 7th? iirc the rumor was JL 1 ends with
Green Lantern coming to Earth to warn them about Darkseid
i'm not into the tattoos or the lack of blonde, the funny part is i'm covered in tattoos and brown skinned. so you'd think i would love it, but it just isn't aquaman for me. though the costume looks okay from what's visible.
Awe man. The scale armor explanation from the Johns run made his orange/green costume one of my favorites. And come on. Can't have even a little blonde? White strips? And a silver trident? Mluh
That's obvious, but why do the audience and characters have to know the explanation? It adds nothing, so it can remain magic. Chill out bro and go back to /r/atheism if you're that bootybothered about fictional magic.
Considering there's a Green Lantern solo film in the mix, I'm going to go with Green Lantern.
I like it. I have absolutely no attachment to Aquaman besides his involvement with the Justice League, but I'm also not one of those folks that loves to joke about how useless he is. There are far more useless powers sets than his. His traditional costume is a bit campy, though. I love camp, but if Man of Steel taught us anything it's that DC is fucking terrified of levity right now, so if we're going badass, I've seen worse attempts.
>but why do the audience and characters have to know the explanation?
They don't "have" to know anything, but for whatever reason people are currently more willing to accept superscience as an explanation than magic, and when you're dealing with a system requiring suspended disbelief consistency is crucial.
>why do the audience and characters have to know the explanation?
Why not add a magic carpet to Jurassic Park?
Why not have go full retard for all sci-fi movies?
Hard sci-fi is a genre and Snyder is trying to make the DCCU that. Or at least as close as possible.
never said orange and green are stupid. never said an american flag costume isnt stupud, never said superheroes arent believably realistic enough. said none of those things. i said exaxtly what you quoted.
you simply applied that to me so you could ignore my point and categorize me as another dude who wants 'muh realism' like dark knight and dismiss what i said as blather from one of these 'embarrassed by comics' types.
some shit looks stupid.
aquamans costume looks stupid.
its stuck around because its considered classic by those who love it. thats great. doesnt mean it doesnt look stupid. theres a reason why supermans costume has never been drastically changed for any film despite being just as unrealistic as any outfit.
>why would they swap out Hal for John?
To distance themselves from this
Comics universes are places where magic and science meld. Marvel even confessed that their Thor movies sucked so much because of how they watered down all of the Nordic God concepts into bland science bullshit.
oh my god. do whiny stupid fags think theyre renaming the team?
this upcoming film is 'dawn of JUSTICE'. they even set the title for the team movie as 'justice league' on their release schedule.
is being a mewling fag a competetive sport folks are trying to get practice for now?
It's a cape comic movie, full retard would be totally acceptable and I don't think people would suddenly suspend disbelief at magic like most people think. Avengers is doing Scarlet Witch so why the fuck not?
Ruling out magic entirely not only eliminates options they have of using certain characters, but complicates some things. There's no good origin for Wonder Woman that doesn't involve magic in some way. Having her be Kryptonian is not only terrible but makes Man of Steel make no sense.
They've already overhauled their movies, they don't really need to bother distancing from it when it will clearly be very different
plus by the time 2020 rolls around that thing will be a decade old
36 years and counting and they're still trying to get out from under its shadow
Anyone else hoping Momoa will be able to waterbend to some degree? Maybe not a water sword, but something for offensive moves.
I take it you guys aren't designers. Usually the goal is to retain the silhouette from the first look (despite how different it is from the book incarnation)
The "point of failure" in this case is that he has scale tattoos. Everything else can be changed if they want, and since it's a movie they can layer other designs over existing tattoos in later movies. Unless Aquaman is ever not going to be a fish guy I think they'll be okay.
>yfw Flash appears in a post credit scene
basically just increased saturation of the colour already there.
Beard looks scruffy he's supposed to be a king
They just trim it
I'm sorry I can't find it right now, but really Kevin Feige just admitted in an interview at some point that the Thor movies have been the most inconsequential of all the Marvel franchises, which they're hoping to change with Thor 3.
Inconsistent direction attributes a lot to that though.
God does this look laughably bad. I know it's an overused joke, but Warner really is far too ashamed to make straight comic book movies. I don't blame DC, because as a comic book company they at least don't fall in line with whatever the movies create as the new visual canon (like you-know-who). But man, it really looks like this whole movie Justice League experiment is shaping up to be one long train wreck. Not Fantastic Four levels, but still pretty cringe-worthy.
>Aquaman: My friends, now that we are together we must form an alliance to thwart the impending doom that threatens to destroy the world!
>Batman: What kind of a threat?
>Aquaman: The dreaded space starfish!
>Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman in unison: ....what?
This looks good but can someone please shop the words out and of course give it color.
LASTLY SOMEONE ASSEMBLE THE JUSTICE LEAGUE. (As in someone please up all the official photos together)
I don't dislike any of them but if they're gong to do GL stuff on CW it really deserves to be Hal
I don't care much who they use for the movies, preferably Hal in JL and the rest show up in GL but as long as they do Hal on CW it's all good
That's not the point of failure that I see. You're overgeneralizing it.
I agree with you that overlaying tattoos would be a way to build or change the character. But if you look at that picture there is hardly any room to work in the negative space of the tattoo add things on to make the design look significantly different.
There's many different ways to do a scale pattern, and all of them evoke different emotions or concepts that are attached to the character. If you Google Search "scale pattern" you'll see what I'm talking about.
The pattern they went with evokes strength because its blocky and the space each scale takes up is thick in comparison the space where there's nothing, but like I said there's no room to work anything within or around it Without taking away the shape of scales.
UNLESS of course they go with a different type of body paint, something that is colorful but temporary like war paint on top of the scales. Just as an example.
Oh, I was just talking about how the MCU can't decide what they want the Asgardians to be. Like, adding laser cannon castle defenses in Thor 2 but still having the soldiers wield spears and dying like a bitch to generic space armata soldiers, even though they're supposedly God-like.
> no hook hand
Fuck. If you are gonna go dark and gritty 90s, go all the way at least.
( Yes, I know Peter David's 90s Aquaman was great. Yet that was despite the zeitgeist of shitty Watchmen Dark Knight wanna be shit flooding the market. All Snyder is is a Watchmen Dark Knight wanna be, so I expect that bad 90s shit and not David's quality. )
They pretty much just had Carl Drogon and let his hair down. Heaven forbid they tried to make Momoa look more like a classic or Year One Aquaman. I feel they are type casting him.
Shit. This is gonna be Van Wilder Green Lantern all over, but with Carl Aquaman.
>You are delusional, go home.
Hopefully you can feel my eyes rolling from where you are. I'm doing it as hard as I can, anon. Do you feel it? Because I'm really putting some effort into it here.
What? I just happened to see it there first. if I saw the thread here, I would repost my /co/ comments there. These are my main boards.
Yeah. True. Given that his look is halfway there, his hand is more likely to get chopped off than Rick on AMC's Walking Dead.
>Without taking away the shape of scales.
To elaborate, what I mean by this is there's no way to add more to the negative space without keeping the design distinctly recognizable as scales.
Green Lantern's problem was that it wasn't a comedy, except for one good part.
Latest rumor says it's Dan Amboyer
>Already in BvS
>He's an unnamed pilot (drone pilot)
>Has been hitting the gym a lot recently
>Literal live action Hal Jordan
any more colour to it and it starts to look real shitty, this is about as accurate as i could get
It's also 3 a.m. here
I'm drunk with power at this point.
Who says any part of this movie will be underwater? This is still Batman and Superman's show, so I'm pretty sure he'll be in this just for the world development.
That will definitely be a problem for the future movies to figure out though.
