    I think Starman would make a good TV series, if you had it on a more mature network. Maybe HBO. Get Christopher Lee to play the Shade.

    Anyone who's actually read Aquaman comics knows what an awesome show this has the potential to be.

    Al Gough, apparently, isn't one of them.

    The TV version of DC Comics’ King of the Seven Seas “won’t be talking to fish or riding seahorses,” according to “Smallville” writer producer Al Gough, who is involved in a new WB Aquaman pilot that that no one will be calling “Aquaman.”
    What makes Aquaman unique among super heroes? He rules an undersea kingdom and can command undersea life. Great, let's ditch those two concepts for the TV show.

    I rarely hope for things to fail, but this is one of those things.

    Aquaman?! Of all the DC heroes out there the WB gives Aquaman his own show? motherf***ing Aquaman!?!?!?! Good luck in making that show good.

    What makes Aquaman unique among super heroes? He rules an undersea kingdom and can command undersea life. Great, let's ditch those two concepts for the TV show.

    Like Smallville and Roswell, Charmed, and all WB Scifi and Fantasy shows, he won't be going on amazing adventures so much as falling in love with people, having sex with them, and angsting about it afterwards.

    To further illustrate, it should be something quite like this, only with Aquaman instead of Lucasfilm characters:

    "No! I'm carrying his Atlantean spawn!"

    One thing bothers me: They aren't even offering the lead to the guy who made the series possible, by doing a great job in the part on Smallville! What a daft idea!

    I don't know...could work. Seems like this could be Smallville II only with Atlantean aspects replacing the Kryptonean aspects. Atlan could be Arthur's Jor-El, trying to force him to accept his destiny and heritage...Black Manta or Orm (Oceanmaster) could be his Lex Luthor...Tom Curry could be his Jonathan Kent.

    Smallville is winding down, with maybe another year or two left in it. I betcha this will be a thinly veiled Smallville clone. I don't have a problem with that, though. This could be fun.

    Like Bruce Campbell would say in Sky High , SIDEKICK. ;)

    Or maybe , it will be the 2005 version of "The man from Atlantis".

    Aqua Man also has super strength. That "talk" is really telepathy, and he can move super fast, ni the water, or on land.

    For starters.

    Marshal99, you sound curiously like "Cellmate" from the DC Boards! :rolleyes:

    I liked what they did in the Smallville episode, and think it could be very interesting. I wouldn't mind the aquatic telepathy not being there - at first, but developing, a la Clark's multiple powers, as Arthur learns of his heritage - and destiny.

    According to both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, actor William Toale has been cast in the title role of the WB’s upcoming Aquaman series. A relative unknown in regards to television and movies, Toale most recently has appeared in a supporting role in a Broadway revival of A Streetcar Named Desire.

    Speaking to Variety about the Florida-born actor, executive producer Alfred Gough said: “"In the [three month] search for Aquaman, we saw over 400 people in England, Australia, Canada and several U.S. cities. We saw Will's tape over Christmas, and he was the only guy we took to the network."

    The pilot will begin filming in Florida in March, with Miami eyed as the leading location candidate.

    And yes, Gogh knows the uphill battle the character might have to face to get some love, again telling Variety: "We call him 'the much-maligned Aquaman,' but when we first pitched Smallville, Superman was considered cheesy. In the comic, Aquaman's the lost king of Atlantis, but in our version, he is Arthur Curry, this twentysomething who owns a dive shop."

    Gough is co-executive producing the new series, expected to be one of the WB’s chief offerings of next season, with Miles Millar.

    I can picture it now someone will tip him off about a coporation dumping chemicals so he will rush out of his shack-like store to fight evil! The coporation will be ran by the evil CEO Black Manta!

    They'll probably make Black Manta a contemporary of Arthur's, assuming he appears. Then again, considering WB's (non)treatment of African American regular characters on its series (see Pete Ross), maybe having Manta appear isn't a good idea.

    I couldn't help but Photoshop a costume on the image.

    I know we'll probably never see him in uniform, but I thought it'd be fun to see. Click image below to see abit larger.
