Digital Trends caughut up with actor Jason Momoa recently and he had this to say regarding his upcoming Aquaman film:
“…the cool thing with Aquaman is how it taps into the native culture and that’s something that we’re only taught a little about, so there’s a lot of interesting things. I really think it’s the right time. It’s really cool. Zack [Snyder] is one of those perspectives on it and DC is really getting behind it. It was a ballsy step. They did it, and I’m extremely happy with the world they’ve created. It’s an honor to be part of this.”
Momoa also talked about the influences on the story, saying: “I read the [Aquaman] script and let me just put it this way, I’ve never seen a movie that’s anything like this. It’s going to be a world that you’ve never seen before, which is really cool. We went to space, we traveled all over different worlds, but we never went underwater. So it’s just a really cool spin on what’s below and it uses a lot of great movies that I already love — whether that be Raiders of the Lost Ark to Star Wars to Lord of the Rings to Romancing the Stone. It has a lot of really cool adventure, it’s funny and heroic, and there’s a lot of different characters and a lot of different worlds that we get to go to.”
He went on to say that he, “…read the script and just started training for it and I can’t wait. I’ve spent a lot of time in this industry, so I’m excited to put all my energy into it and completely f*** some s*** up.”
Aquaman will hit theaters on October 5, 2018.
