Aquaman Is Recast

And he’s gayer than before!

Justin Hartley has replaced Will Toale who replaced Alan Ritchson from the original Smallville appearance.

The CW Network released the following generic statement:

“Will is a talented actor with a promising career and we hope to work with him in the future,” a CW spokesman said. “We have made the decision to go in a different direction with the Aquaman role and wish him the best of luck in all of his endeavors.”
