The King of Atlantis Unveiled

...After all, it is Shark Week across the TV landscape...and so, TRIDENT followers should not be surprised that the role of AQUAMAN (Neptune/Poseidon) for the upcoming "Batman Vs. Superman: DAWN of Justice"  movie has finally been officially confirmed. Hawaiian (any wonder? see here) born Joseph Jason Namakaeha Momoa will DAWN the ORANGE and Green, and carry the all powerful TRIDENT as King of Atlantis.

Momoa is no stranger to this royal linage...he played Ronon Dex on TV's "Stargate: Atlantis", and most recently as Khal Drogo a warlord of the Dothraki on HBO's "Game of Thrones". The Dothraki are a nomadic horse tribe. Horses are central to their culture, transportation, raw materials, warfare, and establishing social standing. Horses are even used as food. As we know, Poseidon is the God of Horses.

On Saturday, August 9th, Loren Coleman posted this wonderful quote from Director Zack Snyder regarding the character of Aquaman:

"The cool thing with Aquaman is he has his trident. You have to realize that could cut the flesh of Superman if they came in contact. That's a thing that's in the canon. He's super strong because, of course, he can exist at these super deep depths. So when he comes up here, he's crazy strong. Anyway, not to say he's in my movie or anything like that, but he has the potential to be bad ass, that's all I’m saying."
Great find Loren, thanks for that!
