It's not unusual for comic books to have synergy with the movies when it comes to how the character looks, and it turns out that the look of Jason Mamoa's Aquaman almost made it to the ongoing Aquaman comic book series. Aquaman artist Brad Walker shared his unused designs on Twitter, showing Arthur Curry with the same big beard, shaggy hair, and shoulder-armor chest strap that Mamoa sports in the Justice League movie.
"Don't think I ever posted these. Early round of #aquaman designs when we thought we would need to lean into the movie look. Ended up going more classic though, which I probably like better, anyway," Walker said in his tweet.
