It looks like an Aquaman movie is on it's way and we've got 7 reasons why you should be getting excited. Aquaman gets no respect and let's be honest Aquaman has long been the bud of many jokes, but with news that Warner Bros. has hired Gangster Squad writer Will Beal and 300 writer Kurt Johnstad to write two separate scripts for a stand alone movie it is looking like Aquaman could finally get the respect he deserves.
First up two words Jason Momoa. Although this casting has not been officially cast yes all signs point to the former [Game of Thrones](movie:817617) star being Warner Bros. choice to play marine marvel. Okay he doesn't have the blonde locks that many of you associate with character, and he is not the big bankable star that would drive tons of people to the theaters yet. But there is no question that he is a total badass like Aquaman is, think about it if you are a shady villain doing some shady things which hero would you rather not headed your way? Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, or Jason Momoa?! Which brings us to our second reason.
Aquaman does not have a no kill code!
Aquaman is not just tough he can be totally deadly. Unlike Superman and Batman [Aquaman](movie:264237) does not have a no kill code, sure he is not running around killing bad guys left and right but he has no problem about taking a life when it is necessary and if he does need to take someone out he has an arsenal of powers at his disposal to do it. Most people think his powers are just limited to breathing underwater and talking to fish but those people do not really know Aquaman. Considering he spends most of his time in the ocean he does have the ability to breath underwater of course, but having to live in such a harsh and intense environment has aloud him to develop super-human strength, endurance, reflexes, and agility he is extremely durable and can withstand bullet. Don't forget he can see in total darkness, has enhance smell, hearing, sonar ability but that is not all he is also an expert in hand-to-hand combat and fighting styles that don't really exist on land. Sure he may not be all quite the level of Superman but he does not have Superman's weakness of magic or Kryptonite either.
He talks to fish
Now forth on our list is the previous mention ability of talking to fish and when you say it that way it sounds lame, but it is so much more than that in actuality Aquaman possesses marine telepathy which not only allows him to control all marine life but he has at time used powers against humans too. For those of you who are still unconvinced that this is a real power maybe you will change your mind when he sends a real sharknado on your ass.
Now if Aquaman's powers do not convince you how about his weapons? His trident is indestructible and is powerful enough to even cut Superman. And at one point his hand was eaten by a bunch of piranha and instead of sitting around he decided to turn it into a weapon by attaching a harpoon to his arm, it was later turned into a hand made of water that allowed him to kill someone just by touching them. And another time it was replaced by a prosthetic arm that can change shape at his command.
Well there you have it 4 reasons to be exited for a Aquaman movie.
