The CW has released a few new promo images for the upcoming 8th season of Smallville and I found two particular photos of interest. Here are pics of Justin Hartley as Green Arrow (formerly Aquaman) and Alan Ritchson as Aquaman in their superhero costume finery:
See, this is proof positive that poor costume design can really undo a person’s hotness. Green Arrow doesn’t look too terrible but Aquaman, OY, looks just horrrrible! Tho, on the plus side we can plainly see where Aquaman keeps his trident ;) Granted Aquaman (and other Z-list heroes like hiim) is difficult to make cool and/or sexy but … man, couldn’t they have tried harder. Look at Alan’s face — even he looks disappointed. I mean, why does Aquaman need sneakers? Hahahaha … I hope these guys are being paid well for this gig. Poor things.
