We’ve already seen Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and of course, Henry Cavill as Superman. And now director Zack Snyder has given us another glimpse into the world of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice by posting the first image of Jason Momoa as the first big screen version of Aquaman. Snyder made the reveal on Twitter, just like he did with the Batmobile and the first photo of the new Batman, and this time the photo comes with the curious tagline of “Unite the seven.” Could this be referring to the seven members of Justice League or maybe the seven relics of Atlantis? We’re not sure.
Here’s the first photo of Jason Momoa as Aquaman from Zack Snyder’s Twitter:

Again, we’re not sure what the tagline means. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, Cyborg and Green Lantern make for seven members of Justice League. But in the comics, there’s also a storyline concerning items known as the seven relics of Atlantis. But something like that sounds a little too similar to the Infinity Gauntlet storyline that Marvel Studios is building up to, so I’m not sure that’s correct either. Surely there are better educated Aquaman fans who can speculate a little better. Otherwise, I have to say, Momoa looks bad ass as Aquaman, even if he still looks like a Dothraki from “Game of Thrones.”
Zack Snyder’s sequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in the DC Comics Universe will bring back Henry Cavill as Superman and introduce Ben Affleck as Batman. Amy Adams, Laurence Fisburne and Diane Lane are all reprising their roles from Man of Steel, while more new additions include Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. There have also been rumblings of Ray Fisher as Cyborg and Jason Momoa also has some sort of role. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters next spring, March 25th, 2016.
