With just a few weeks until Justice League lands in theatres, fans eagerly await the first DC Film featuring Jason Momoa (Game OfThrones) as Aquaman. The character is a clear standout in the Justice League trailers but according to Momoa, this version of the character might not be what fans expect.
“Aquaman, he’s not even really Aquaman yet. He’s not the King of the Seven Seas. We don’t really get there until my solo movie, at the end. Really, it’s a huge growth for me. It’s a gigantic arc for Arthur Curry. It may be tough for a lot of fans to watch what they’re gonna see, how I portray him. But you gotta wait until we get to the solo movie to really know. Because he’s not King yet. He doesn’t believe in himself, he doesn’t know what to do with the powers he has. He’s going through tons of loss. He hates Atlanteans. The fact that people are calling him ‘Aquaman’ right now – he couldn’t give two sh*ts about anything Atlantean. So he’s really not quite there yet. Some people will be like, ‘This isn’t my Aquaman.’ But we’re not there yet.”
It’s not surprising to hear that this version of Aquaman isn’t the one that fans might expect, especially because Justice League is just an introduction to the character and a set-up For next years Aquaman movie. From the sounds of things, we’ll really get to see this character develop throughout the Extended Universe instead of getting the final version in the first film.
