Aquaman Movie Puts Jason Momoa in Classic Orange and Green Suit?

Aquaman Movie Puts Jason Momoa in Classic Orange and Green Suit?

Are we going to see Jason Momoa rocking the orange and green suit from the comics in Aquaman? A new rumor suggests that very well may be the case. Ever since Momoa was cast to play the iconic DC hero, it’s seemed like Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder before he ended his work on Justice League, were trying to move away from the image of Aquaman that many people have in their minds. The DCEU version is a far cry from the Super Friends version of the character that so many people are happy to poke fun at. However, the orange and green suit that is so closely associated with that classic version of Aquaman may be showing up in the movie, which arrives in theaters this December.

This should be regarded as merely a rumor for now, but the news comes from the fan site The Aquaman Shrine. According to them, someone who recently attended a Warner Bros. licensing event claims that the studio actually showed a costume that is “exactly” like the modern version from the world of DC Comics. Here’s what they had to say about it.

“Orange & green for Halloween? WB licensing event attendee says the Aquaman movie costume shown is ‘exactly’ like the modern comics version!”

Though the modern version of Aquaman in the DC Comics universe is still much cooler than the version from decades past, he still rocks a very classic orange and green suit. It’s a little tough to picture Jason Momoa wearing such a thing, given how he looked in Justice League, but Aquaman is likely going to try and set itself apart from what we’ve seen previously. Not only that, but an image surfaced online last summer of an action figure that depicts Momoa in a version of the more iconic suit, and it eventually made its way to stores nationwide under the Batman V Superman toylike. An updated version of the classic orange and green suit was then released for the Justice League toy line. So this isn’t the first we’ve heard, or even seen, of this possibly happening. And you can check out those action figures below to get a sense of what this might actually look like.

However, as DC fans know, rumored suits don’t always wind up in the final product. We had heard for more than a year leading up to the release of Justice League that Henry Cavill’s Superman was going to be seen in his black suit from the comics. The suit never even showed up in the movie and, what’s more, based on a recently released deleted scene, it looks like the suit was only going to be seen in the movie on the Kryptonian ship. Superman was never actually going to wear it. With that in mind, Aquaman fans may want to temper their expectations just a bit.

Aquaman, which is directed by James Wan (The Conjuring, Furious 7), is the only DCEU movie making its way to theaters this year. So there’s a lot of pressure to deliver. Maybe a little fan service, such as the orange and green costume from the comics, done in just the right way, wouldn’t be a bad way to get off on the right foot. We’ll likely have to wait until the first trailer for Aquaman arrives, at the very least, to find out if there’s any truth to this rumor. You can check out the report, courtesy of The Aquaman Shrine Twitter account, for yourself below.

Are John Cena and Nikki Bella Back Together?

Just over a month ago we revealed that WWE Superstars John Cena and Nikki Bella broke up ( you can click here to find out why Nikki Bella broke up with John Cena.)

Since their break-up both John Cena and Nikki Bella have been on a media frenzy, one for her reality TV show, and the other for his blockbuster movies.

John Cena has made it clear in these interviews, that he will stop at nothing to win Nikki Bella back, and it looks like it actually worked.

John Cena and Nikki Bella are finally back on the road to reconciliation!

A source told us that “they’re basically back together.”

“They both got a wake-up call once they canceled the wedding, and they both realized they could fix what was broken,” the source revealed.

“They never stopped talking,” a source told People Magazine. “Other than the actual wedding weekend, when they took some space, they have been talking.”

John had made it clear on NBC’s “Today” show that he wanted to have a family with Nikki and still wanted to marry her. If you watch Total Divas or Total Bella’s than you already know that this is exactly what Nikki wanted to hear.

“He has poured his heart out to her, and she was more than ready to take him back once she heard what she needed to hear,” the source from People Magazine added. “He’s been saying and doing all the right things.”

As seen below, TMZ spotted the couple in San Diego over the weekend, and it looks like we may see the power couple together again real soon for good!

Andy Serkis’ ‘Mowgli’ Trailer: A Darker Look At ‘The Jungle Book’

Andy Serkis’ ‘Mowgli’ Trailer: A Darker Look At ‘The Jungle Book’

With this morning’s trailer debut of Andy Serkis’ Mowgli, we now have a trailer for every major Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc. release for 2018 except for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born and James Wan’s Aquaman. I’m guessing we’ll get a Star Is Born trailer (the film opted to forgo Cannes in favor of the more Oscar-friendly Fall festival circuit) attached to Ocean’s 8 in early June. That Aquaman trailer will drop, I dunno, sometime next month with Incredibles 2 or Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom or with July’s Ant-Man and the Wasp just before SDCC?

Either way, this darker, PG-13 variation on Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book is going to have to justify itself 2.5 years after Disney beat them to the punch with a pretty acclaimed and $996 million-grossing version of the iconic story.  Yes, this one is presumably more faithful to the original book than the Disney toon, the 1994 Stephen Sommers actioner or Jon Favreau’s animated/live-action hybrid from 2016. But at the end of the day, it’s still another live-action/animated action drama set in the same general world and stemming from the same source material.

It’ll be an uphill battle, even if this does turn out to be essentially a Jungle Book movie with the tone, mood and flavoring of Matt Reeves’ recent Planet of the Apes sequels. To be fair, this looks pretty spectacular from a purely visual point-of-view. And the animal cast, including Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Eddie Marsan and Naomie Harris among others, is pretty impressive if not quite as conventionally star-studded as Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Walken and Idris Elba. If not for the fact that we just had a variation on this movie from a different studio two years ago, this one would probably be looked at as a much bigger deal.

But this isn’t 1998 where audiences necessarily want two loose copies of the same movie in a short period of time. Heck, even in 2013 there was only room for one “Die Hard in the White House” movie, as the underrated but overbudgeted White House Down fell to the cheaper and nastier Olympus Has Fallen. Of course, a 2.5-year difference is different than a six-month (or less) span between movies. So will audiences feel that enough time has passed in between Jungle Book movies, even if this one does look pretty neat and does feel closer in spirit to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes than Walt Disney’s (occasionally somber and arthouse-ish) Jungle Book adaptation?
