Although Aquaman is making his theatrical debut in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, his solo movie isn’t hitting theaters for another two years. However, the past several weeks have seen some reports concerning characters who will likely be appearing in Aquaman. First it was reported that his wife Mera, described as the "Khaleesi of the sea," will debut in Justice League Part One, and then last week it was said that Aquaman’s half-brother Orm, a.k.a. Ocean Master, will serve as the main antagonist in the underwater adventure. While both have yet to be officially confirmed, they would be welcome additions to the 2018 blockbuster. But they’re also just the start.

While Aquaman doesn’t have the biggest supporting cast in the DC universe, there are a few important characters who would be great choices to add to his movie. As King of Atlantis, Arthur Curry (Aquaman’s real name) has certainly made his fair share of enemies, but he also has many allies by his side to help keep the oceans safe. These are the folks important in his life who we think should be included in Aquaman for key roles.

Garth
Garth
The birth name might not ring any bells, but some comic book fans might know him by his superhero identities: Aqualad and Tempest. Hailing from the underwater city Shayeris, Garth was sentenced to death after being born because his purple eyes signified that he would be the one to inadvertently free a dangerous sorcerer named Slizzath. Fortunately, Garth was saved from this fate, and as a teen, he fought alongside Aquaman as his sidekick. When he grew older, Garth exchanged to Aqualad identity for Tempest (which also led to him gaining magical abilities), but he continued to assist Aquaman and Atlantis. Obviously we don’t expect Garth to serve as the stereotypical teenage sidekick in the movie, but he would still need to be in a position where he could easily jump into the action. The best way to do this would have him either be one of Atlantis’ top military personnel or as a young solider that Aquaman notices has potential and decides to tutor him. Should Aquaman 2 be made, then Garth can take the next step towards to becoming an official hero.
