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.

QUEEN OF SOUL ARETHA FRANKLIN DEAD AT 76

QUEEN OF SOUL ARETHA FRANKLIN DEAD AT 76

 
Aretha Franklin, known for having one of the greatest voices in music history, and for hits like “Respect,” and “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” … died Thursday after a long battle with advanced pancreatic cancer.

Aretha passed away in her Detroit home where she was under hospice care. She’d been in failing health for many months and she was down to 86 pounds. One source told us he was informed more than a week ago that Aretha could go at any time.

She was surrounded by friends and family when she passed. Her family released a statement, saying, “In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family.”

She had appeared incredibly frail in recent years, and rarely performed live. Her most recent appearance was last November for Elton John’s AMFAR event.

Aretha’s career is just incredible. Born in Memphis in 1942, her family eventually relocated to Detroit where she began singing in her father’s church. She was such a powerhouse gospel singer, she landed a Columbia record deal in the early ’60s.

Her string of chart-topping hits began with her Atlantic Records deal in 1967.

Aretha’s achievements in the late ’60s were remarkable for any artist, but especially so for a black woman in the midst of the Civil Rights movement. She held the record for the most entries on the Hot 100 list of any female artist for nearly 40 years, only to be dethroned in 2017 by Nicki Minaj.

She won 18 Grammys and was the first woman ever inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.

Aretha delivered a powerful rendition of “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” — while wearing that unforgettable hat — at Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration.

Throughout her career, Aretha was known for delivering incredible one-off live performances, including at the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors show where she sang ‘Natural Woman’ in honor of the song’s co-writer, Carole King.

The Queen of Soul was 76. She is survived by her 4 sons.

RIP
