Fans caught a glimpse of Jason Momoa's Aquaman in last spring's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. However, the King Of Atlantis will be getting a lot more screen time in the near future thanks to Zack Snyder's Justice League and James Wan's solo Aquaman movie.
Speaking with GQ, Momoa touched on the tone for Arthur's upcoming solo adventure and revealed that one of the big reasons he took up the role in the first place was due to the fact that the character has never been seen on the big screen until this point in time.
"We’ve never really seen anything from this guy before, so it’s fun to have a level playing field. 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."
Aquaman stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Nicole Kidman, Temuera Morrison, Patrick Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Dolph Lundgren. The superhero solo adventure swims onto the big screen December 21st, 2018.
Fans will meet up with Arthur Curry once again in Justice League on November 17th.
