Before appearing in his solo film, Momoa’s Aquaman will make his big screen debut in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, set to hit theaters on March 25, 2016. It’s also a near certainty that he’ll be back for Justice League: Part One, arriving November 10, 2017. Aquaman then hits the following summer with Justice League: Part Two following on June 14, 2019.

What do you think of Wan helming the DC property? He has proven himself a valuable asset in the Hollywood scene, but does he have what it takes to bring the first version of this character to the big screen? Let us know in the comments section below!
