February 27, 2015: Jason Momoa Talks About Aquaman in "Batman v Superman"Print

Jason Momoa as Aquaman Entertainment Weekly has published an interview with Jason Momoa in which they ask him about his role as Aquaman in the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and Justice League films. Here's an excerpt from the interview:

    I know it’s superficial of me, but one thing I really like about the potential of the DC movies is that its actors are actually pretty imposing. By that I mean, when I see you—who’s 6’5”—or 6’4” Ben Affleck or 6’1” Henry Cavill throw someone through a wall or get thrown through a wall, I feel like there’s really some damage being done. Have you filmed any action sequences with them yet?

    No, we haven’t done too much on the action yet. You know, Justice League is still quite a ways away. But I’m looking forward to it. Henry’s a sweetheart, Ben is a badass, so I’m really looking forward to when we all shoot Justice League.

    How much can we expect to see you in the Batman v. Superman movie?

    Well, it’s Batman and Superman, it’s not my movie. It’s the first time in history to have them both on the screen together, and I’m just excited to see those two up there.

    There was actually some speculation that Aquaman was meant to pop up in "Man of Steel", in the underwater scenes after Henry Cavill is blasted off the oil rig. Were you ever involved in those discussions?

    Well, you know, I think that’s left for the genius of Snyder to kind of reveal that. There’s definitely a plan in this whole universe that he’s designing, and it’s amazing to be a part of it. I think everything that you see that is building, there’s a purpose behind the whole plan. So I wouldn’t want to take anything away from Zack, because he loves revealing all those things. And… you never know, man.
