The WB Network has given a put pilot commitment to a live-action rendering of the DC Comics character "Aquaman" from "Smallville" executive producers Miles Millar and Alfred Gough says The Hollywood Reporter.
The series is envisioned as a contemporary reinterpretation of the character who lives in the deep sea and enlists sharks and other oceanic creatures to help him in his crime-fighting endeavors.
The new-model Aquaman will be a man in his early twenties and like "Smallville", there's no costumes or other superhero accessories used when his superpowers are invoked. The character appeared on the October 20th episode of "Smallville" played by Alan Ritchson, but a new actor will be put in this series role. The pilot is planning to shoot early next year in Florida.

I didn't even think it was newsworthy for the facts that it's Aquaman and people on this site hate DC. Buuut it's seriously on every site I get my news from so it was a calling. The good news is a new actor and not the same Alan Ritchson from the "Aquaman" ep in SMALLVILLE. He was all right but not good enough to hold a series. Anyway, my prediction is it won't last. Good luck to it though and I'll probably be setting it on the DVR.
