Smallville Magazine #20 Article - 2007


As promised, here's the article on Alan Ritchson as Aquaman that appeared in Smallville Magazine #20.

After so many years of Aquaman being the only Super Friend never translated into live action, it's taking me a while to process that I'm seeing a real live person playing my hero. Don't get me wrong--I love it--but growing up I was so used to Christopher Reeve, Adam West, and Lynda Carter that its still feels strange to see the word "Aquaman" in this context.

here to see a super-big, readable version of the article!

What's really weird/great/unbelievable, is that TWO guys have now portrayed the Sea King in live action shows. Who would have ever thought that that would be possible???

Yeah, and while I LOVED the fellow who played him in his pilot, I wasn't that big a fan of Ritchson. He didn't do a bad job, but I thought...Justin, right? I thought he did a much better job. It sort of made me sad that he has to stay as Green Arrow on the show and not Aquaman.

Three, if you count Adrian Grenier.

I much prefer the kid from "Mercy Reef," but that's just a relative thing. This guy has little-to-no charisma from the little I've seen, and his nose spoils any resemblance to the character.
