Aquaman finds Lex's secret evil plans for the Smallville Undersea Roller Disco.
'Smallville' heads get OK for Aquaman pilot at WB
WB Network has given a put pilot commitment to a live-action rendering of the DC Comics character Aquaman from "Smallville" executive producers Miles Millar and Alfred Gough and Warner Bros. Television. The project is envisioned as a contemporary reinterpretation of the character who lives in the deep sea and enlists sharks and other oceanic creatures to help him in his crime-fighting endeavors. Millar and Gough have deftly handled the same chores for WB and WBTV during the past five seasons of "Smallville," which tells the story of Clark Kent's teenage years and his coming-of-age as Superman. The new-model Aquaman will be a man in his early twenties. As is the case on "Smallville," there won't be any presto-chango into costumes or other superhero accessories when his superpowers are invoked, a WB Network spokesman said.
New Aquaman Won't Be Alan Ritchson
A new face will be playing the role of Arthur Curry in the Aquaman TV pilot, which is tentatively said to be shooting in Florida in early 2006.
Warner Bros. is searching in many places - from New York to Los Angeles, Miami, Canada, even Australia - in the search for a new Aquaman. The "new guy" will likely be in his early twenties.
