|He's the Aquaman we deserve and the Aquaman we need right now.|
Though Momoa has previously claimed that he would not be blonde for the film, he does appear to have some blonde streaks in his hair, an obvious nod to the character's comic book origins. Snyder's Aquaman is covered in Polynesian-inspired tattoos and his arms and one shoulder are embossed in armor. The signature Aquaman logo can be seen on his waist, and though most of the color palette is muted, we can still detect notes of the iconic orange and green on his armor and pants.
Overlaying the photo is the tagline, "Unite the Seven," which could have various meanings: an attempt by Aquaman to unite the Seven Seas under one king, or perhaps the seven members of the Justice League that will be featured in DC's upcoming slate of films. Assuming it's the latter, this could be the start of an exciting ad campaign for Warner Bros. to introduce their new onscreen ensemble of characters.

Created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisenger, Aquaman's first appearance was in 1941 in More Fun Comics #73. Aquaman will make his big screen debut in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 25, 2016, followed by Justice League Part One on November 17, 2017, and will eventually star in his own solo self-titled adventure, Aquaman, on July 27, 2018.
Will he change the way much of the public thinks of the character?
