Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom director, James Wan, has shared a new look for Jason Momoa’s Aquaman on Instagram.
Wan, who directed the first Aquaman and is directing Aquaman 2, posted two pictures of Momoa as Aquaman today. The first image posted by Wan is another look at Momoa’s classic Aquaman suit, which is the one he wore in the first Aquaman movie.
The second image, however, is a first look at Aquaman’s new Stealth suit
As you can see in the Instagram post above, the Stealth suit is sleek and significantly less flashy than Aquaman’s classic suit. It drops the larger forearm armor pieces and leg armor pieces in favor of a more streamlined suit.
“Atlantean tech based on cephalopod’s camouflaging ability,” Wan wrote in the Instagram caption. “[Aquaman 2 writer David Leslie] and I were inspired by the 80s ‘blue suit.’”
As noted by Wan, the suit’s darker colors are reminiscent of the camouflaging abilities of cephalopods. Perhaps Aquaman’s Stealth suit will have camouflaging abilities as well. Only time will tell for now.
We might learn more about this Stealth suit during the 2021 DC FanDome event, which includes a new look at Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The FanDome showcase is also set to feature a new trailer for The Batman starring Robert Pattinson, as well as new looks at Black Adam, The Flash, and Shazam! Fury of the Gods.
While waiting for DC FanDome, read about why James Wan returned to direct Aquaman 2 despite the fact that he doesn’t like to repeat himself and then check out why Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom might explore a similarly lost underwater civilization known as Necrus. Read our thoughts on the first Aquaman movie in IGN’s Aquaman review after that.
