Jason Momoa Training Jiu-jitsu For 'Aquaman'; Actor To Do Additional 'Justice League' Work

Jason Momoa, star of the upcoming DC Films' Zack Snyder-directed Justice League and the James Wan-directed Aquaman, is the first actor to take up the mantle of Aquaman for the big screen. And he is training more for the role.

Momoa will soon be over at Australia filming the James Wan-directed feature but in the meantime is training for the role. He has begun to learn Brazilian Jiu-jitsu at the 87 Eleven Action Design studio. Concurrently the same studio is where Amber Heard, who plays Mera, is also training for her respective role. It will be interesting to see if what he learns gets translated in his stunts for Aquaman. You can find Momoa in the background of this video in the black gi/kimono.

Recently in other Momoa-related news, the star was set to appear at Oz Comic-Con Perth, which would've run from March 25-26, but can no longer attend. The actor will instead report to Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, California to do additional work on Justice League.

Aquaman will be directed by James Wan, is written by Wan, Geoff Johns, and Will Beall, and it will star Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm, Nicole Kidman tentatively playing Atlanna, Yahya Abdul-Mantee II as Black Manta, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry with Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko. Aquaman releases October 5, 2018.
