The first official Aquaman movie poster was released today and while fans were excited about the epic look at the hero with his army of ocean creatures there was one thing no one could quite figure out – why is Aquaman wearing leather pants under water? Now, director James Wan is speaking out in defense of the wardrobe choice.

Aquaman is wearing leather pants because Jason Momoa.

While we’re pretty sure that there is a portion of the population that does want to see a pantsless Aquaman, when given the options of swimming trunks or the pants the leather pants probably are the better choice for a man set to unite the seven seas even if swimming in leather isn’t most practical option.

Another detail on the poster that fans noticed was Aquaman’s Quindent instead of his signature Trident.

Getting to see Aquaman go on that quest is also a part of the larger origin story that the movie will tell, one that may diverge from the comic books, but certainly uses one specific version of the character as a touchstone.

What do you think about Aquaman’s leather pants in the poster and Wan’s response? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Aquaman opens in theaters on December 21st..

“I think that the New 52 version of Aquaman was definitely our touchstone and our starting point,” Aquaman producer Peter Safran told ComicBook.com on set.

Through this film and his previous outings, Aquaman actor Jason Momoa is aiming to redefine the DC Comics character.

This is a character moviegoers will want to sit down for a drink with after a hard day’s work of saving the world.

“I wanted Aquaman definitely to be that guy. He’s blue collar. I mean the whole thing about him, I wanted him blue collar, he’s raised with his dad, worked on bikes, worked on old cars with his father and at a certain age he’s given this gift. He doesn’t know how to deal with it. His dad doesn’t want him in the water, ’cause he doesn’t want him taken away. The only thing he does know is that his mother was killed. He wants nothing to do with these people. F–ing hates ’em.”
