The marketing machine is in full swing for DC’s Justice League, and the latest Funko Pop! figure releases may have accidentally dropped a plot point.
Two new figures have been revealed, featuring Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne (in big-headed Funko form). The Bruce Wayne figurine is pretty much what you’d expect, with Wayne sporting a suit and holding a Batarang. But Aquaman? He’s wearing his costume we’ve already seen, but instead of holding his trident, he’s holding a Mother Box. So … does Aquaman use a Mother Box in Justice League?
There were rumors the Mother Boxes in the DCEU would be split among Atlantis, the Amazons and humans — so perhaps Arthur Curry has been secretly holding onto one all this time? Keen-eyed fans already got a glimpse of a Mother Box in the YouTube-style set-up clips of Cyborg from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and we’ve heard they’ll factor pretty heavily into the mythology of the big-screen DC universe.
So what do you think? Just a random accessory, or will Aquaman be wielding a Mother Box on the big screen?
