Dragons are more metal than horses right?



Source: Aquaman exclusive: First close-up look at a massive sea dragon

Yesterday we got a preview of some of the characters from the different undersea kingdoms in the Aquaman movie. What we did not get to see is what many (?) an Aquaman fan is clamoring to see, the main fish's trusty steed, Storm the Seahorse. Storm debuted in Aquaman #23 (1965) and appeared here and there in the comics. People probably get the image of Aquaman on a seahorse (unnamed) more from the Filmation Aquaman cartoons though.

Well, it looks like we won't be getting the ridable seahorses in live-action Aquaman movie, no, we'll be getting something even "better": seadragons! Or "sea dragons" as Entertainment Weekly refers to them. Here's what producer Peter Safran has to say about the change:

"The idea was to turn on its head the idea of Aquaman riding a seahorse, take something for which he was mocked and turn it into something terrifying and impressive"

 

Note that seahorses and seadragons are in the same family.

In the movie the sea dragons are the rides of people from the Xebel kingdom, like King Nereus (Dolph Lundgren) and Mera (Amber Heard). However, Safran teases:

"He's a Xebellian creature but I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Arthur (Jason Momoa) on one at some point…"

:lol: :lol: :lol: That would be several kinds of awesome! :lol: How many? Several, don't pin me down man. :x

But I will still laugh at Aquabro…. :P

Personally, I think they should just have some self awareness and go with it, play him for laughs. Worked for GoTG and Ant-Man.

I have a feeling that this movie is going to be a lot cooler than people (and the haters) think. 8)

Haters are people too.
Well anything above zero percent cool and it'll have achieved that. You're not setting a high bar to clear there.

They are still trying to make the character look "badass" with those designs though, which is the antithesis of cool. Give him full on goofy seahorses to ride, and maybe waterski behind some porpoises, then we can talk about cool.

Fair enough. I could have worded that "people (including the haters).."

However, now I would like a clarification. A few days ago you said:

So now you think the goofy seahorse riding, porpoise water-skiing "Super-Friends" version is cool? :smt017

He's cool because he is dorky and doesn't care, he's not trying to convince everyone he is cool. That is cool.
