Smallville starts Aquaman Series

#1 Posted by Time Captain (55 posts) - - Show Bio

Smallvilles Oliver Queen is staring in a new live action T.V. series about Aquaman. They even have the full unaired pilot of it on the web. You have got to see it, it's awesome! Roomers has it that they're going to do the same thing for the Green Lantern?

It was supposed to happen before however the show was cancelled

Oh and this pilot was made before he appeared in smallville

#3 Posted by Nighthunter (28580 posts) - - Show Bio

the reason it wasn't made is because of Aquaman's lack of popularity

#4 Posted by Time Captain (55 posts) - - Show Bio

That blows people should petition to put that back up. The pilot was great and if that was the beginning that just imagine what the rest of the series would be like. Even the smaller heroes should be able to get a movie or TV series. Batman, Superman, Wonder Women, Flash, the Hulk they got a chance.

There are 8 people in the world that like Aquaman. If they all watched the premiere together at one house, how would that look for ratings?

He might not be the most popular of this generation, but there have got to be some of the older fans out there. He was popular enough to be the action figure the one large kid held in the Movie "Unaccompanied Miners", and he's good enough to be written about in here. Even the smaller heroes deserve some respect.

I believe that movie had Lewis Black in it, who I like, but no one really saw that. All that really means is one writer liked him. I have a hard time 'respecting' fictional characters. I either like them or don't.

Aquaman really doesn't have many fans anymore. That's how it goes. I dunno if you've seen Entourage but one of their biggest jokes is that they were making Aquaman the movie. It's a funny concept all by itself.

I watched the pilot and I thought it was good enough for TV, especially with loads of crap they have on these days.

I also liked it, however I gotta say that I understand why it wasn't made

Personally I like more tempest

Ya, I've seen Entourage and their spoof was really funny. And I do agree the Tempest is a cooler character, but the ocean is still a mysterious place and it would be cool to have a series like Aquaman were things would be based in and around the sea. Especially when they would be taking the Burmuta Triangle into the storyline. besides who else could they have based by the Ocean.

you can still pick it up on Itunes in quicktime format, or on Vuse in HD AVI

Da! Thats right. Completely skipped my mind. That would make for a great story line, but would he, Fen, or the Captain be popular enough to get people thinking about a series?

#15 Posted by Time Captain (55 posts) - - Show Bio

Has anybody else heard more about the Green Lantern series or movie.

we've talked about this a few times in the Smallville Spoilers thread...

have a read through there, i'm sure theres some GL stuff in there somewhere

#19 Posted by Time Captain (55 posts) - - Show Bio

I have a Gl trailer set up in my blogs. Whey dis the smaller super heroes. Green Arrow is pretty cool and he's considered a small timer. All heroes got to start out somewhere.

I would still be nice to have them try to mare a Aquaman Series to see what it would be like. Smallville didn't start out big but they've gone through seven seasons.

Aquaman series based off of the Smallville appearance? Doesnt surprise me really that it didnt go far. Not bashing Aquaman, but I can see how his popularity isnt strong enough to hold a show over. Only Aquaman I found was neat was Justice League cartoon Aquaman, aside from his strong similarities in personality with Namor in it. But thats what I liked I suppose.

#27 Posted by Time Captain (55 posts) - - Show Bio

We've established Aquaman is out but what about GL?

That's a improvement in strength :P

i think an aquaman cw show would be great idea it could start with arthur graduating high school (or college doesn't really matter) and then him decding to leave the surface world and claim the throne of atlantis taking with him some old atlatian armor his mum brought with her by accident when she ran away from atlantis leaving his cousin (on his dad side obviously) to take care of the light house in amnesty bay arthur goes down to atlantis only to fin himself being hated due to his blond hair he then instead of being brash and confessing his lineage joins the atlantian army and him and his squad work quickly up the ranks becoming the kings secret black ops squad they stage a cuop d'eat against the king and his son( ocean master) arthur reveals his linage to atlantis becoes king (this all being in the first 5 seasons) and then after a bit you can bring in mera and maybe even garth it ending in arthur becoming aquaman nit just the saviour of both the sea and land maybe even a bit of cheeky justice league action at the end. i think it could work and be a great show kind of like arrow and game of thrones combined
