Aquaman's solo movie may well be a fair few years away from hitting our screens, but with the hero set to appear in next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he'll likely be making a major cinematic impression a whole lot sooner than that.

There have been a whole lot of rumors floating around about the hero's role, and the nature of Jason Momoa's imminent performance as the ruler of Atlantis, with the majority seeming to suggest that Aquaman will have been vastly transformed from the clean-cut, green-and-gold-clad pretty-boy we know and love from the comic books.

For many fans, though, Aquaman has, in the meantime, retained his place as the butt of pretty much every comic book themed joke going.

That, though, doesn't seem to be sitting too well with Momoa, who - while speaking at this past weekend's Fan Expo Canada 2015 - revealed his belief that all of that could be about to change. Y'see:

According to Momoa, No one'll Be Making Fun of Aquaman After Batman v Superman

As he put it:

"You know, it's cute and funny, I mean people make fun of him and there's a bunch of jokes about him...But I'm like 'Well... just wait. Let's just wait a little bit. And then we can make jokes...'"

Which, seeing as he's set to look like this...

...possibly isn't as surprising as Aquaman's fish-talking, skin-tight costume-wearing heritage might suggest.

What's more, though he'll apparently be far less barbaric than Momoa's iconic role as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones...

"I don't think Aquaman's going to be raping and pillaging any villages..."

...Aquaman still seems unlikely to be anything close to the DC Cinematic Universe's comic relief:

"I can't see me busting out a bunch of jokes. I mean, I don't think it'll be like that."

In Other Words, Aquaman's Going to Be a Badass

Which, in fairness, readers of his more recent comic book appearances have known for a while now...

The big question, though?

What do you think?
