Aquaman leading man Jason Momoa is known for his heartthrob good looks, which are topped off (literally) by his iconic long hairstyle.

Now, however, it seems that Momoa’s locks have changed for his role in Aquaman 2, which is officially titled Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. In a new poster [below] for the upcoming film, a sketch of Momoa has distinctly blonde hair, which is a noticeable departure from his usual darker ‘do.

Previously, a DC teaser image [below] for the Aquaman sequel featured this change, as well. It is worth noting that, although the lighter hair is certainly a departure for Momoa’s appearance, it is in keeping with how Aquaman appears in DC Comics.

As one article noted:

…[although this hairstyle and beard haven’t] been seen in Momoa’s three DC Extended Universe appearances and his screen time in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, it’s nothing new for DC’s resident underwater hero.

In both DC Comics and past animated shows featuring Aquaman, the half-Atlantean usually sports golden locks and a matching beard…

More on Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet’s Divorce

Recently, Momoa and his wife, Lisa Bonet, confirmed that they are divorcing.

The pair — who were together for 12 years prior to their 2017 marriage — share two children, son Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa and daughter Lola Iolani Momoa, who will undoubtedly be their focus during this difficult time as the family transitions.

In recent months, rumors have abounded that there was trouble in paradise. Speculation that the Sweet Girl actor and Bonet were on the rocks was fueled when the star was spotted exiting a Los Angeles bar without his other half in November 2021 — but did have a mystery woman in tow.

Some fans have blamed Momoa’s Aquaman costar, Amber Heard (Mera) — who is embroiled in her own bitter legal battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean, Fantastic Beasts) — for the former couple’s split, but there has, of course, been no confirmation that these reports hold water.

The official description of DC Comics’ Aquaman reads:

An action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman” reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be…a king.
