Jason Momoa Talks Aquaman

During a recent interview with GQ, Jason Momoa opened up about playing Aquaman in both Justice League and Aquaman, noting the character has not been seen in a theatrical film before. Here are highlights from the interview:

On being the first to play the character in a film: “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.”

On who Aquaman is: “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.”
