We’ve known, from his first moments in character, that Jason Momoa was the wise cracking bad-ass Warner Brothers has been looking for in its DC comics universe films.
The first trailer for his stand-alone turn as “Aquaman” gave me a little chill, and several chuckles. And I’m not a fan of the genre. Watch them go and make it all about the digital brawls. Character is what works here. With Nicole Kidman as his mom, with Djimon Hounsou, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Michael Beach, Randall Park and Dolph Lundgren in the supporting cast, this seems like a can’t-miss Christmas present for the fanboys and girls.
