I respect the effort, here.
And it actually makes the Hanna-Barbera Aquaman seem a bit more cool, too! I really am looking forward to this movie, mind you. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this here, but I know guys like Jason Momoa. The SCA is full of them; jocks who are awesomely chill, and are at least geek-friendly when they’re not actually geeks themselves. If things had gone differently for him, we’d be in the same tribe.
So I kind of want Aquaman to succeed for that reason, among others.
