Jason Momoa Excited To Set The Tone For Aquaman
Posted 2017/04/28 0 0
Jason Momoa is excited about getting to set the stage for the Aquaman franchise for (hopefully) years to come.
Just like Wonder Woman, Aquaman will also get his own solo film, as part of the ongoing expansion of the DC Extended Universe and its mythology. The Aquaman movie arriving in December 2018 will be the first time anyone will see a live-action version of the title character on the big screen in his own solo movie, and that’s perhaps what excites Momoa the most.
In an interview with GQ, Jason Momoa discussed how he will set the tone for the character and shed light on Arthur Curry’s journey in the upcoming film. Momoa explained how being the first actor to portray the role in a live-action feature film will allow him to set the tone for the character.
“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.”
Momoa discussed how Arthur Curry will be portrayed as an outsider in Aquaman.
“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 will star Jason Momoa as the title character as well as Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm, Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, Willem Dafoe as Dr. Vulko, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereu and Temuera Morrison as Aquaman's father. The movie follows Arthur Curry as he learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and to be a hero to the world.
