We are less than two weeks away from the release of Warner Bros. Studios Justice League. With Marvel Studios Thor: Ragnarok in the rear view mirror the marketing for Justice League is “All In” as the studio would say. With that said there have been many interviews being released with the cast of the film. In this particular piece we are going to focus on an interview conducted by Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV in Miami with Jason Momoa playing Arthur Curry aka Aquaman, Ray Fisher playing Ray Fisher aka Cyborg and Ben Affleck aka Batman.

During the interview, Vliet asks Momoa about fans critisim about his weapon the “trident”. To which Momoa quickly responds:

“I didn’t call it a trident. Well, it’s a quindent, but we don’t call it that in the movie, and when you watch ‘Aquaman,’ you’re gonna see him go for the trident, so everyone’s gotta stay tuned for a hot minute.”

Obviously a trident deems the weapon to be a three-pronged spear, one which Aquaman has usually been associated with in both comics and animated adaptations. But when photos and videos of Aquaman had been released for Justice League, we saw him with a weapon that had five prongs not three. Momoa goes on to explain the reason for this:

“‘Well, yeah, he’s not the king yet,’ he said. ‘He looks to Mera and he’s like, ‘I need to borrow something, I need you to do me a favor,’ so that’s what he gets when she gives him the equipment.'”

This is an interesting detail in Aquaman’s character that that many thought Zack Snyder had overlooked, but now we know the reason behind it. Aquaman doesn’t have his trident yet beacuse he is not king of Atlantis yet, something that according to Momoa will be explored in his solo film Aquaman which is set to be released late next year in December. The weapon he has in Justice League seems to be one acquired from Mera. What do you think of this detail regarding Aquaman’s weapon? Chime in below and let us know what you think.

Warner Bros. Pictures Justice League hits theaters November 17, 2017.
