aquamanfeaturette

During DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League, Jason Momoa, the actor portraying the King of the Seven Seas, and DC executive, Geoff Johns, discussed who Aquaman is while concept art was shown.

"First, we got Aquaman," Johns starts off. "His name is Arthur Curry, he's the son of a lighthouse keeper and the Queen of Atlantis. He starts to develop these powers. He can breathe under water. He can communicate with sea life. He's very strong." He later adds, "He grows up not really feeling like he belongs in either world. So he's man trapped between two worlds, but has a responsibility to protect both of them."

"He's the only one that both: he's human and he's a god," Momoa explains. "I want to see him struggle with how he has these powers and he doesn't know how to handle them, he hasn't been trained."

Check out the Aquaman featurette in the video below.

    No. Why would you think that? It's pretty clearly stated and accurate.

    What he's saying is that Aquaman is the "son" of a Lighthouse Keeper and the Queen of Atlantis. The Lighthouse Keeper is his dad and the Queen of Atlantis is his mom. He said it with not much emphasis, which makes him sound like he's saying "He's the son of a Lighthouse Keeper... Queen of Lantis."

    Ah okay, that makes it a lot clearer. Just the way he said it made it sound funny.
