Jason Momoa On What It’s Like To Make The First Aquaman Movie


Aquaman is a comic book character who has been the butt of quite a few jokes throughout pop culture history. However, Jason Momoa is out to change any misconstrued public perceptions of Aquaman when he brings him to life in “Justice League” and then his own standalone film.

Given that Aquaman has never been played by anyone else on the big screen before, Momoa is enjoying the freedom of doing it his own way. The actor recently spoke to GQ about the film, and he seems excited about the fact that he’s the one who gets to set the tone.

“We’ve never really seen anything from this guy before, so it’s fun to have a level playing field,” Momoa said. “There aren’t like four Aquamans before me. I get to set the tone for it.”

As far as what fans can expect from “Aquaman,” Jason Momoa says that it’s a coming of age story.

“The guy was never really accepted on land, and he was never really accepted in Atlantis. He’s a half-breed. But he’s the best of both worlds. He just doesn’t know how to handle his powers. So it’s kind of a coming of age for a young man to a man, or a man to a king. He’s lost a lot of things and he’s got to cope. He’s an outsider.”

“Aquaman” opens everywhere December 21, 2018.
