Denim and water are not friends. Wet denim is cumbersome on the body in or out of the water. But in Aquaman’s debut in Justice League — as well as in the first Aquaman poster — star Jason Momoa wears wet jeans.
Near the beginning of the cast’s visit, host O’Brien asked the director why he chose to put his water-based superhero in a pair of hip hugging jeans. Wan replied, “Firstly, I want to say, I tried to get Jason to do it pantless.”
Wan went on to explain that the decision was actually made by Momoa, who admitted that “denim was a bad choice.” He added, “Denim is phenomenal. Looks great. But when it’s wet, it’s rough. Rough!”
The jeans don’t appear to slow down Aquaman in the trailer, but we’ll know more when the film crashes into the theater Dec. 21.
