Jason Momoa sat down for an interview recently and he had a lot to say about playing Aquaman.
On Seeing The Justice league Trailer
“I was like this is Aquaman propaganda. It was amazing. Zack is just… I love him to death. He’s amazing. And he’s been… Obviously, it’s his vision. He pulled me in to play it. He believed in me. You know, he changed me life. I owe the guy a lot. The stuff that he shot, just seeing the trailer was like, ‘Wow!’ Because everything that I. brought and wanted to bring, it’s all the hopes you want to bring to the character. He made sure that stuffed stayed in there.”
When Zack Snyder Approached him for Aquaman
“Dude, there was a lot of things that went through my head when he said Aquaman. There were a lot of things that went through my mind. I was thinking like, ‘Lobo.’ I’m gonna play some kind of bad guy. I’m like, ‘Who am I gonna play?’ And he said Aquaman. I was just like, ‘Come again? Pardon me?’ And then he explained why. I was like, ‘Whoa, buddy. I got your back'”
On Underwater Kissing Scenes
“Nah, they’re easy bro.”
We also learned that pre-production has begun for the Aquaman movie in Australia. While some have expressed concern because underwater scenes are notoriously difficult, we think it is going to be pretty epic and we have faith in James Wan.
