Okay, this is a weird one, Jason Momoa fans. DC Comics trademarks lots of stuff, naturally, based on the characters and concepts it publishes, often when a TV series or movie is coming to fruition. Lots of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman trademarks. concepts such as Krypton, Smallville, Superman breaking chains across his chest, Harley Quinn's tattoos like "Daddy's Little Monster". Pretty much what you would expect. But what I wasn't expecting was DC Comics to register a trademark for Jason Momoa, the actor who plays Aquaman in their movies. And specifically for a range of blankets, towelling, curtains, diaper changing pads, and pillowcases. The full list runs below;
This is the only thing DC Comics has registered "Jason Momoa" for, filed by Warners lawyer Megan L.Martin on the 31st of August. And it is utterly bizarre. The only other registered trademarks for Jason Momoa were ones that he made himself back in 2019 for a clothing line "On The Roam By Jason Momoa" for climbing shoes and climbing bags, hats, jackets, and the like. But now it seems that DC Comics/Warner Bros wants the trademark to Jason Momoa's name for all manner of things. I wonder what Jason Momoa will have to say about this?
