New Stealth Suit Costume Revealed
It’s nearly a assure for a superhero film, or any extremely merchandisable blockbuster franchise today: new film within the collection, new costume for the hero. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is no exception, and we’ve acquired a take a look at the brand new swimsuit in motion.
Revealed by returning director James Wan and star Jason Momoa over the weekend, alongside the orange-gold and sea-green swimsuit from the primary film—adapting Aquaman’s iconic comics costume—within the sequel Arthur may even put on a “Stealth” swimsuit model of his gear, which trades the brightly-colored authentic for a darkish coloration palette, accented by silver armor padding alongside the arms and thighs, and a a lot sleeker profile.
Wan describes the brand new swimsuit, designed by David Leslie Johnson, as being “Atlantean tech based on [a] cephalopod’s camouflaging ability,” and taking inspiration from a equally toned swimsuit Aquaman wore within the comics, the blue camouflage launched in Neal Pozner and Craig Hamilton’s 1986 miniseries. But one fascinating design evolution other than the coloration is the torso, which is simply… properly, chiseled in a approach that’s meant to replicate Arthur’s personal physique, however is admittedly only a swimsuit of bones stealth abs on prime of his precise abs.
There’s little doubt Jason Momoa in fact, has fairly the physique beneath all this costuming—we got to see plenty enough of that within the first movie as properly—however there’s one thing form of delightfully retro and tacky in regards to the sheer quantity of sculpted musculature on the brand new swimsuit in comparison with the primary film’s costuming for Arthur. Throw within the darker coloration palette and it actually does really feel like a throwback to superhero film costuming tropes from the ‘90s, with more than a little camp thrown in for good measure. And really, if there’s going to be a DC sequel with some retro cheese in it? It’s gonna be the one which’s following up the film with Pitbull’s take on Toto, isn’t it?
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is presently scheduled to launch in theaters in December 2022.
