Aquaman: Swimming toward the big screen?

Check out this from the Los Angeles Times:

“ ‘Aquaman,’ one of Hollywood’s hottest inside jokes, might make the move from fiction to reality. As a key plot line in HBO’s ‘Entourage,’ the ‘movie’ directed by James Cameron shattered box-office records (a feat that got it a real ad in Variety), turned an unknown actor into a $20-million movie star and sparked a fight over a sequel. But now, informal talks have been launched about the feasibility of making a real Warner Bros. ‘Aquaman’ movie.”

I could see it actually. But if I were developing an “Aquaman” movie, I’d steer away from making it your basic superhero flick and instead make it give more of a fantasy feel, as DC has done with its “Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis.” Sort of an underwater “Lord of the Rings” or something.
