Aquaman a la Smallville

A few years back when Smallville was soaring high for the CW, that network went looking for ways to make their superhero-coming-of-age lightning strike twice. In 2006 they ordered a pilot for a television series featuring a young Aquaman before he knew the extent and origin of his powers.

In the title role was Justin Hartley (who subsequently went on to portray Oliver Queen/Green Arrow in 72 episodes of Smallville), and a helpful merman from Atlantis was played by Ving Rhames. The full pilot was filmed and is available for purchase on iTunes, but for no charge you can view an intriguing trailer for the show by clicking above. It looks good to me and I think I would have liked this Aquaman show.
