Geoff Johns talked about how incredible Aquaman is, and this is a little compilation about what he said:
- “Why is Aquaman interesting? I can tell you from my perspective, emotionally why it’s interesting is because his father was a human, his mother was Atlantean, and he thinks he’s a half-breed and he doesn’t belong in either world – the surface or the oceans or Atlantis.”
- On Arthur Curry: “He considers himself a man of no world. And its not until he’s with Mera that he finds a place in life.”
- On Arthur Curry: “He thinks he’s a half-breed. His is brother Orm is full Atlantean & its Arthur’s job to bring the worlds together.”
- On writing the script: “I work with a lot of great people, but the whole thing is to craft and shape the story and tone to fit the character and celebrate the character, instead of deconstruct the character. You want to celebrate the character, because you have to really celebrate something and build it up to really make it into something that represents who that character truly is. And also, the fact that I’ve written all these comic books it gives me a lot of credibility coming into the room, because it’s hard to argue, sometimes. People can tell me what they think Aquaman is, but I wrote the book – literally – so it helps me.
