As for Aquaman, how was the CW (or was it WB at the time) pilot?
Yeah, I didn't see it, but I heard it was pitiful. I really don't trust the CW to make a good show... Smallville was great during seasons 1-4, but took a serious nose-dive during season 5 and never recovered. They really should have ended the show after 4 seasons, but at the very least it was irresponsible to continue up to the 10th season.
The Aquaman I was referring to was the fake "movie" on the HBO show Entourage. Vinny Chase is cast as Aquaman with Mandy Moore as the love interest in James Cameron's adaptation. "In Show", the movie broke Spider-Man's then-record Box Office opening weekend.
