Now he’s back as the headline of his own movie and thereby kick starting DC’s resurgence into the superhero movie universe.

So it turns out that Arthur Curry was born in 1986, which means in the DC Extended Universe, he’s 32 years old. Just like every other superhero before him, Aquaman’s been depicted in many different ways. In some comics, he has a beard and a hook hand while in others, he’s painted in a much lighter manner. From the trailers and other promotional materials released this year, it looks like this new Aquaman adaptation is hoping for a happy medium between the two. Guess we’ll just have to wait until next month just to find out how.
