Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder sent out the first official poster last night featuring Jason Momoa as Aquaman, but, as we pointed out earlier today, the most intriguing aspect of the one-sheet is the tagline "Unite the Seven." The two most prevalent theories are that the tagline refers to "The Seven Seas," which Aquaman rules over, or the seven members of the Justice League, Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Green Lantern (who has yet to be cast) and of course Aquaman himself. While we'll have to wait and see what Unite the Seven truly means, Badass Digest has a new piece of info that offers some insight into Aquaman's role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which claims he only has a glorified cameo.

Last night, fans got their first look at Jason Momoa as Aquaman, courtesy of a new photo sent out by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder. It has long been rumored that Aquaman and other characters such as The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) will show up at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, to form the Justice League with Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). Not only will this lead to the two-part Justice League movie, but also standalone adventures for Aquaman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and Green Lantern (who hasn't been cast yet). While we wait to see Aquaman and the rest of these characters in action, this photo not only confirms a few previous rumors about the character, but poses even more questions.

The King of Atlantis has arrived! Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder dropped the first image of Jason Momoa suited as Aquaman, and he.s nothing like we.ve ever seen before. When you think of the model-turned-surfer-boy rendition of Smallville, as played by Alan Ritchson, this version of Arthur Curry looks a million times better . and way more badass. Comic book fans have been making their jokes for a while now, and Snyder has heard them all. But no matter what grievances you might take with this new look, Aquaman bodes great things to come for the DC universe. There is only one true King. #unitetheseven pic.twitter.com/RDFG8jbuI6.

With not even a protruding bat ear or a flowing red cape to be seen in anticipation for the release of Warner Bros. next big DC film, we’ve got a surprise from director, Zack Snyder, who caused some waves this morning by tweeting the first fresh look at Jason Mamoa as Arthur Curry aka Aquaman.
The water loving warrior and ‘one true king’ will be making (we’re guessing) a brief appearance in the upcoming super showdown Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where he’ll no doubt be kicking off about us putting something in the water that we really shouldn’t, right before he lets a shark eat someone.
Naturally as with the reveal of any character from the DC camp, it’s splitting fans right down the middle.
