Jason Momoa talks Aquaman and more on Jimmy Kimmel Live

06.19.2014

Jason Momoa playing Aquaman in future DC films seems all but confirmed at this point, although we've yet to really gauge Khal Drogo's reaction to this news until now. Jason Momoa takes the bulk of his time talking about ROAD TO PALOMA, a film he directed and co-wrote himself, but Mr. Kimmel can't help but try to pry some information on the Man of . . . Aqua.

Take a look:

If you ask me, Momoa's poker face is not that great. However, he seems like a good-natured guy and is also responsible for one of the most badass moments in televised history (included below). Aquaman gets a bad rap for being "uninteresting" and "useless outside of the sea". I have a feeling Momoa will give people a reason to like Aquaman. If he happens to rip a few tongues out along the way . . . I'd be okay with that.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, will show us their Aquaman on May 6, 2016.

I have nothing against DC I love all comics. Its just proven by his already awful roles in a few other movies that tanked something awful. In those movies his acting is front and center of the criticism about how awful he is as an actor. Even on Game of Thrones he is terrible, he just the big string guy, no acting, no arc, just a brute. Same with WW she is a terrible actress who actually has no experience and was hired on her looks and maybe the casting couch. They passed over many more

Same with WW she is a terrible actress who actually has no experience and was hired on her looks and maybe the casting couch. They passed over many more qualified actors bc she will be cheap which shows how much faith they lack in her and mostly the character. Both of them are lame and don't be an adult coming on here going oh he can do this or that, he cam make a web made out of sea horses and catch whatever he wants, because those sound really lame and make you look like ur still in your moms basement. You however want to like anything bc it is a comic your excited by 2 awful actors, playing 2 corny characters who all have a track record for failure. I mean seriously has anything ever been so non successful as trying to make WW popular, how many failed TV shows and movies? I mean its incredible how many failures? Ugh the casting of Eisenber, I mean really, really?

Aquaman is not lame. He's the king of the seas, and 71% of the earth is covered by ocean. He doesn't just talk to fish; he has control over everything in the ocean - everything from orcas to flesh-eating bacteria. He cut off his own hand to save his baby. His wife is hot as all get-out. It's not the worst possible casting decision there, or even the worst casting decision for this film, but Aquaman should have a swimmer's build. His GoT co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was always my favourite for

But if they style Momoa like angry pirate Viking Aquaman, it just might work.

Yeah nice try, he is beyond lame. Have you ever seen Entourage? He is shockingly lame. Back to moms basement to be an adult obsessing over comic books and every little flaw in teh movies. Hey can he summon 2 great white sharks that can act as surfboards while he jumps through rings of flame? I mean that would be cool! Good god

If the only thing anyone ever saw of Batman was the '66 TV show, they'd say he was lame as well.

Who says he has to be blonde? Or ride a seahorse?

Forget everything you ever saw on The Superfriends cartoon. Zach Snyder is probably going to let his guy off the chain like he did with Gerard Butler in 300. I'm predicting now that he'll steal the show.

Aquaman might be the only character more corny than wonder woman and to top it off they picked a horrible actor who will look even more stupid than normal with blonde hair. Hopefully he can summon the cracken to kill whomever he needs to bc his lame ass aint doing nothing out of water. Do we have to throw water on his gills to keep him functioning?

I like Momoa, but as Aquaman? A huge brutal looking guy like Momoa as Aquaman? Snyder is like an angsty pre-teen kid saying "I know how to make Aquaman cool!". It's the same kind of mentality that went into the hilariously over-the-top mass destruction in Man of Steel. If you asked this pre-teen kid what makes something cool, he would just make explosion sounds for 45 minutes.

He's going to own the role. Love the inspired casting by DC with one of their less popular or more unknown comic book characters. He'll bring a real, menacing, intimidating persona to Aquaman.

you say that about every single superhero movie, lets not forget as ur avatar reminds us, you though Reynolds was gonna be great in Green and you thought it would be a good movie. Do us a favor and just pretend you will think they will suck and they will probably be good, you just gave it the kiss of death with your approval. For once try to be impartial and not a 12yrd old geek fan. Dude is all kinds of wrong for this role.

I agree. Aquaman is pretty lame. How to fix that? Cast Jason Momoa. Not sure who pissed in
cricker's Kool-Aid, but I'll take a guy that's excited about movies over a hater troll that spits on everything any-day. This is a FAN site after all.

Too bad Marvel didn't snag Momoa to play Namor before he was cast for Aquaman. I think that would have been a much better fit.

I'm looking at the casting methods of both Marvel and DC and you can see that the former prefers to cast out of desire while the latter is just filling slots for the sake of saying "Why wait 10 years to introduce all these carefully selected and crafted characters when we can just throw them all together and hope for the best..."

So if he does play him, is he gonna have golden hair or sticking with his natural hair color? Don't matter to me, cuz I am one of those people that finds Aquaman uninteresting. Feel that Momoa could be used for a better role. But maybe he will own it like no other.

Nobody mentions

That Jason Momoa played Ronan Dex in Stargate: Atlantis for four years. So if he does end up playing Aquaman (the king of Atlantis) it would be pretty neat.

What a cool dude

He will make a badass Aquaman. Even if for whatever reason the movie sucks, I think that (similar to Conan), most will be in agreement that Momoa as Aquaman was good casting. At least I haven't seen a performance of his that I have disliked yet. Not even in that god-awful TV series North Shore.

Not complaining about the casting choice, but wouldn't he just end up dwarfing Affleck and Cavill?
