Jason Momoa talks up the new Aquaman film

While Aquaman is probably someone's favorite superhero, I think it's safe to say he's not many's. Some of it has to do with his somewhat silly power (fish ain't gonna stop that bank robbery), and some of it is a misrepresentation of his power. Aquaman is actually super-strong (due to his body being able to withstand the pressure living beneath the ocean), and also has a lot of adventures under the ocean, where his fish-talking powers are a lot less useless.

And with Aquaman's solo movie coming out after JUSTICE LEAGUE, here's what Jason Momoa - playing the titular Aquaman - had to say about it:

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...and [I] 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.” 

Never been underwater? I mean THE ABYSS and ATLANTIS: THE LOST EMPIRE would beg to differ with you. But I get what he's saying. I'm assuming that they're doing some interesting things visually (such as a previous report of experimenting with how to make hair look like it's constantly underwater without actually having to film there), and other things that can differentiate from most fantasy films, especially superhero ones.

He also mentions how the film will tap into "native culture", which seems like an interesting take on Aquaman, and one I can honestly get behind.

But what do you Schmoes think of an Aquaman film? Sound off below!

This has potential to be really good. I'm holding out hope for it, and find it ironic that Aquaman has this much potential to be the best part of the DCEU at this point.

That being said, the "extra tidbit" was easily the most useless part of that article. Everyone knows Jason Momoa played Khal Drogo. Even people who don't watch Game of Thrones knows Jason Momoa played Khal Drogo.

I like the bit at the end where he mentions "native culture". When he was first cast I was really excited that Atlantis might have a cool Polynesian kind of vibe to it, because it's a culture I grew up around and is hugely overlooked in mainstream film (this was before Moana). Then they cast Amber Heard and Willem Defoe and I figured they had thrown that idea out the window. So this is cool news to me.

Excited as hell for this and am just glad at least one upcoming DC film isn't having problems and/or being scrutinized.
