Michael Phelps as Aquaman!

Since 'The Dark Knight' has broken so many boxoffice records, other comic book hero movies, such as 'Iron Man', 'Incredible Hulk', 'Hell Boy 2', 'Spiderman', 'X-Men', etc are also doing really well, I'm sure hollywood will keep making this kind of movies until they all become 'Batman and Robin' or 'Catwoman'.
As 'The Dark Knight', 'Iron Man', and 'Incredible Hulk' receiving not just great financial returns but also critical claims, one of the reasons is that they hire some real actors to lead the movies rather just some pretty boys. However, whether the movie is good or not, the CG is fantastic or not, that's up to the people behind to pull the strings. A leading man must fit the role. Michael Phelps, the new Olympic legend, has a good look and a fantastic body, he can act or not...that's not something I know, but I think he definitely fit the role of 'Aquaman'. He can swim, Man HE CAN SWIM. Well, the diving part.....CG can help....but with him leading the role, I'm sure that is a great marketing scheme. Will u go to see him as Aquaman? I will!
