There Will Be Fish Puns Galore in Aquaman, Says Jason Momoa

We all know that one of the things that makes DC Comics character Aquaman endearing is the fish puns. We can all agree on that, right? It's CHARMING, okay?

Here are two examples of the decades of fishy farce:


According to a recent interview with ColliderAquaman star Jason Momoa says there WILL be those signature puns and jokes in the film.

I think James [Wan] has taken all those fish puns and, really, kind of let me do 'em. I think he has an interesting look on what all those fish puns are. The more you look at it, I think it's really-it's not so much that he can talk to fish, but I think when you get to see what he can really do and how powerful the ocean is, I mean…I guess we'll see who's laughing then [laughs].

Needless to say, we're waiting with baited breath for the trailer drop during SDCC this week.
