Jason Momoa as Aquaman Concept Art/ Costume Design

With the news of (I think still unofficial) Jason Momoa being cast as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I thought I’d whip up a version of the costume that I think could work in the film.
With the first costume, I was primarily going for “Aquaman as a warlord”. When I heard of the casting of Jason Momoa, I figured they would want him to not only be taken a bit more seriously by those who aren’t familiar with the character, but also show him as a force to be reckoned with. So, I turned his orange scales into Japanese influenced armor plates and gave him other features such as his gorget and bushy beard.
The second design is a more classic take on his costume. I found it difficult, at first, to translate this version simply because it was hard to make it not look like some kind of cheesy Cirque Du Soleil outfit. But, through adding the gauntlets and greaves as well as the gold work, I felt it gave him more of a sense of royalty.

Who knows what designs they have in store for us in these upcoming DC films, but, more than anything, I just hope they do justice to these characters we all know and love.
