Months after giving us our first look at Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman from his upcoming 2016 blockbuster, director Zack Snyder did his part to break the internet late last week when he debuted the first look at Jason Momoa’s Aquaman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The image of the character showed us that the growing DC Cinematic Universe is going in a very different direction design-wise from the comics, replacing the blonde hair and orange/green suit with dredlocks, armor, and scaly tattoos. But that’s not all that came with the reveal. It also came with a very important message that should play a very big role in the future of comic book movies: “Unite The Seven.”

It is widely believed that this phrase is in reference to the seven core members of the Justice League. The question that it presents, however, is in regard to exactly which seven superheroes we can soon expect to work together on the big screen. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman are clearly locks, and both Ray Fisher’s Cyborg and Ezra Miller’s Flash are fair bets too – but who will be the seventh name in the group? That very idea is the subject of this week’s episode of Hero Blend.

Joining me this week on the show is Cinema Blend’s own Sean O’Connell, and together we not only talk about the fresh new Aquaman look, but also exactly what Unite The Seven means both for and in the context of the DC Cinematic Universe. Hit the play button above!
