Jason Momoa is excited to get to set the tone for Aquaman

Jason Momoa Aquaman

Aquaman hasn't always been given the most respect throughout his history, but with Jason Momoa, known bad-ass and dreamboat, stepping into the role, the character will finally be given his due on the big-screen. After popping up briefly in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, Jason Momoa will next appear in the upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE before finally getting to bring Arthur Curry to the forefront in James Wan's AQUAMAN. As there has never been a live-action Aquaman before now, Jason Momoa will get free rein to make the role his own, which he told GQ is something he's quite excited about.

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.

Jason Momoa went on the explain how he views the role, saying that Aquaman "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." Production on AQUAMAN is still expected to get underway next month and is said to be a "swashbuckling high seas adventure story" in the spirit of ROMANCING THE STONE meets RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK.

AQUAMAN will star Jason Momoa as the title character as well as Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm, Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, Willem Dafoe as Dr. Vulko, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereu and Temuera Morrison as Aquaman's father. Speaking of Morrison, Jason Momoa recently posted the following photo on Instagram with his big-screen father.

JUSTICE LEAGUE will hit theaters on November 17, 2017, followed by AQUAMAN on December 21, 2018.
