Aquaman Casting Sheets

Lying in the Gutters has provided some actual casting sheets for the new Aquaman series. Click on the thumbnails on the top item and you should see the full images.

One thing I find compelling is the Aquaman origin as indicated by the casting sheets is very similar to the one I came up with some time ago as a perfect compromise between the modern and silver age Aquaman versions. While the rest of the details and the addition of McCaffery are wildly different, Tom Curry's discovery of Atlanna and Aquaman as a baby is the most logical blending of origins, in my opinion, and I'm glad someone else thought of it too.

Also note that Aquaman has been given "Orin" as a birth name in this version.
