Jason Momoa

Everyone knew Jason Momoa was Aquaman. The trades reported it, Zack Snyder talked about the character, and Momoa teased it, but no one would confirm it officially until Warner Bros. made a move. That finally happened last week, when the full DC Comics schedule was revealed. Momoa will play Aquaman in two Justice League movies and in a solo movie due in 2018. He’s also likely to appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Because the news is out there, Momoa can finally talk about the role, and he’s got some good things to say. At a recent convention, the Game of Thrones actor talked about respecting the secrecy of the project, the honor he feels in playing the role because of his Polynesian heritage and what he thinks the solo movie might be about. Read the new Jason Momoa Aquaman quotes below. Read More »
