Why? Glenn Close would make a better Aquaman than Phelps, what makes you think he would be a good choice?
Because he could do all his own stunts, and he really is a superhuman swimmer.
But he's not an actor...
This got me thinking of when the Salkinds actually screen tested Bruce Jenner for Superman.

Bruce Jenner is a bit old to play Superman, after all, I remember seeing him on a box of Wheaties when I was a kid. Probably a body builder would be the best for this role if we go strictly by body type.

The screen test was for Superman: The Movie back in the 70s.

Why would Superman be built like a bodybuilder?

Good point. He's so much stronger than human that he could be built like Woody Allen and still be the strongest guy in the world. And really, how often would he be able to exert his muscles sufficiently to build them up in the first place?

Also, more generally, the modern trend in comics to base superhero physiques on bodybuilders rather than athletes is deeply unrealistic, since bodybuilder physique is exaggerated for display. People who actually need to use their muscles in a practical way aren't so overbuilt; in fact, they're often quite wiry.

No, he telepathically commands fish (and other aquatic fauna). Plus, his molecular structure is denser, so he's stronger and less vulnerable than normal people. And let's not forget he's actually a bonafide king. Wanna talk Batman?! He hasn't any powers. At. All. So, why would you put Batman on the Justice League but leave Aquaman out?

What are you talking about? Batman's power is helping a movie make lots of money!

Right, absolutely. It would take amazing physical strength and durability to survive in the ocean depths the way Aquaman can, to swim as fast as he can, etc. Here's a cool article about just how Aquaman would have to endure:

My point was, you don't leave Aquaman out because he "talks to fish". He's badass, maybe the most badass member of the Justice League (yes, I think he surpasses even Batman in that department), want proof, watch his appearances in the DC Animated Universe.

Point taken, but I thought Batman's intellect and detective abilities were something like superpowers, just because he's that far out on the bell curve. Plus, he has great martial arts skills, not to mention his disguises and equipment.

I don't want them to leave anybody out of the JL movie.

Well, his intellect really shouldn't be anywhere near that of Superman (intellect is a combination of creativity, observation and speed - Superman has super-senses and super-speed, his alter ego is a writer, ergo he's pretty much the most intelligent being on earth) and his detective skills haven't even really been shown in the movies (but could be, I give you that), the martial arts and disguises are only effective in urban crime-fighting. Which leaves equipment. Let's just say he'll have to have very scifi equipment to be any use to Justice League during an alien invasion or something like that.

I don't want them to leave anybody out of the JL movie.
Neither do I. I wasn't advocating leaving anybody out. I was advocating leaving Aquaman in.
