‘Wonder Woman’ hits theaters in a month, and ‘Justice League’ comes out in November, but what’s been going on with Jason Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ film?
Momoa spoke with GQ and explained that he’s excited to set the tone for the character and all actors that follow in his footsteps. He also gives a few plot points if you read between the lines.
“We’ve never really seen anything from this guy before, so it’s fun to have a level playing field,” said Momoa to GQ. “There aren’t like four Aquamans before me. I get to set the tone for it.”
“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,” said Momoa.
‘Aquaman’ takes place after the events of the ‘Justice League.’
James Wan directs the film starring Momoa, Amber Heard (Mera), Patrick Wilson (Orm Marius / Ocean Master), the half-brother of Aquaman and the film’s main villain, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Black Manta), Nicole Kidman (Queen Atlanna), Willem Dafoe (Nuidis Vulko), and Dolph Lundgren (King Nereus).
‘Aquaman’ swims into theaters on December 21, 2018.
