Aquaman is gay but Jason Momoa’s version won’t be

Aquaman is gay but Jason Momoa’s version won’t be

It was revealed that Aquaman is gay in the latest episode of the animated series Young Justice: Outsiders, but it won’t affect Jason Momoa’s version.

In the episode Quiet Conversations, Kaldur-ahm is shown kissing Wynnde, a citizen of Atlanta who serves King Orin. The scene in questions received praised on social media, with many calling it a historic moment for the LGBTQ community. But, those asking Jason Momoa’s Aquaman to follow suit, might be disappointed.

The current DC cinematic universe is currently in a state of limbo, and although there is an Aquaman sequel slated for a 2022 release, the future for the seaborne super-hero is looking a bit bleak. DC’s and Warner Brother’s current vision of the Justice League universe hasn’t exactly been met with praise and Warner Brothers are already working on a reboot with Matt Reeves’ new Batman film starring Robert Pattinson.

We’d certainly love to see any future cinematic version of Aquaman proudly wave the LGBT flag, but it may be a little too late to, all the suddenly, reveal Jason Momoa’s Aquaman to be queer. It wont feel genuine at this point. Perhaps in the next cinematic reboot? I would love to see a properly fleshed out LGBT super-hero rather than a brief mention of the character’s sexuality as a sort of fan service.

As a kid reading the Aquaman comics, for some reason, I have always imagined him being queer. I don’t exactly know why, for all I know it could have just been his outfit or his long lush golden blond hair, but I am almost certain that there was something more to it.

I love that Aquaman is gay, but what are your thoughts? Do you feel that DC should out Aquaman as a proud queer in the next movie?
