Atlantis is calling. Aquaman joins the Call for Heroes at Madame Tussauds Sydney on December 13! Will you help answer the call?
The hero of the deep, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman finally makes landfall at Madame Tussauds’ Justice League: A Call for Heroes exhibit in Sydney. The interactive exhibit has been home to the incredibly detailed replicas of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and The Flash for several months, and they’re now being joined by Atlantean royalty Arthur Curry, in celebration of the new Aquaman film, releasing on December 26 in Australia.
The Aquaman section of the exhibit will give fans a chance to get up close with the brand new costume from the movie. You don’t have to be too eagle-eyed to see there are a lot of differences to this suit from the Justice League version that make this the definitive costume.
Keeping in line with DC’s new bright and colourful nostalgic direction, Aquaman’s new look sees the return of the deep orange and green colours that defined his original look, but this ain’t no Super Friends jumpsuit.
This is some big deal Atlantean armour, and as you’ll see at Madame Tussauds, the individual scales that make it up have been rendered in painstaking detail. The gloves and boots also come with some stylish fin embellishments. Clearly it’s not just the technology, but also Atlantean fashion that’s nautical miles ahead of our own culture. Just put the Justice League and Aquaman posters side by side and you’ll see the difference is land and sea.
While the JL armour gave us a hint of that Atlantean culture with its triangular, scale-like patterns, and seaweed green colour, the throwback costume is certainly a lot more striking. Going by the trailers, the reason for this change is obvious. Arthur is graduating from some simple warrior digs to the Ruler of Atlantis armour, and we are ready to hail the king. We can’t ignore that shiny new trident either! The JL one is cool, but, come on… Not a trident, technically… More like a big scary fork…
Some superheroes can see a drastic redesign every few minutes, but Aquaman’s has remained mostly consistent since his inception, only with more details being added. Sometimes he’s shirtless and has a hook for a hand, but most of the time the only big change is the length of the hair
The orange and green is a staple of the character, and it’s a testament to his longevity and legacy that his look is as recognisable as any of the other heavy-hitters from DC like Batman and Supes. Aquaman’s been at the bottom of the superhero pecking order for way too long, and this movie looks to be putting the King back on top. Be sure to pay your respects to the Atlantean royalty in person at Madame Tussauds Sydney, from December 13!
