Jason Momoa Says Aquaman is Still Growing Into His Traditional Characterization
Justice League star Jason Momoa is assuring fans that while his version of Arthur Curry in the DC team up film might seem overly gruff, he’s going to be much more fleshed out in next year’s Aquaman solo film. The Game of Thrones veteran cameoed as the Atlantean hero in last year’s Batman V Superman, and we’ll be getting our first proper introduction to the hero in Justice League, where he’s recruited by Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) to help thwart the evil warlord Steppenwolf, who’s come to conquer Earth in the wake of Superman’s (Henry Cavill) death. While fellow new additions like The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) have enjoyed some mainstream recognition through high profile television projects, Aquaman is largely remembered from the cheesy 70’s and 80’s cartoon Super Friends. One of the DC cinematic universe’s bigger tasks was always going to be overhauling Aquaman for a 21st century film audience.
