Aquaman Movie Book offers a new look to the classic costume
Tie up children’s activity books for Warner Bros. ‘ The upcoming Aquaman movie offers another look at Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry in his classic costume.
A set of covers for Aquaman the linked activity books offer another look at Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry in his classic gold and green suit. The costume is something odd, given that we’ve seen it in merchandise and worn by an official Aquaman toy, but we haven’t seen it at all in the Aquaman trailer released at Comic-Con. Instead, Arthur Curry is seen shirtless, wearing civilian clothes or wearing different armor.
The reason is most likely that Aquaman didn’t become King of Atlantis until the very end of the movie, as Momoa confirmed last year, and so it would be difficult to show scenes with him in the movie. costume without spoiling what is happening. However, given that this is the first time Aquaman has appeared in his own big budget solo movie, many fans are eager to see the costume they know and love from the comics – especially since Aquaman has already appeared in two films without this.

Twitter account The Aquaman Sanctuary unearthed cover mockups for three children’s activity books that relate to Aquaman, and all three feature our hero in his classic gold and green costume. The photos are unfortunately in very low res, but you can also see other characters like Mera (Amber Heard), King Orm (Patrick Wilson) and Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II). In the first image, Aquaman wields King Atlan’s trident, which again confirms that these images represent Aquaman at the end of the film, as the film will be about Arthur searching for the trident.
Aquaman is the first DC Extended Universe film since last year’s poorly received Justice League, and all eyes are on director James Wan to see if his film will manage to match the success of Wonder woman and get the DCEU back on track. Warner Bros. diversifies its lineup over the coming year with kid-centric comedy Shazam! and an average budget Joker film starring Joaquin Phoenix and directed by Todd Phillips. From what we have seen so far it seems Aquaman will be a fairly traditional superhero origin story, exploring Arthur Curry’s childhood and his struggle to be part of two worlds: land and ocean.
If that first solo film turns out to be a success and Momoa returns for a sequel, this classic comedic-precision costume will hopefully have a lot more screen time. For now, however, the fun will be seeing how Aquaman goes from a beach bum to the King of Atlantis – armor, trident and all.
