Jason Momoa Shares Excitement For 'Aquaman' And Its Tone

After this year's Wonder Woman and Justice League have come out, we will have Aquaman as our next DC film to look forward to. Starring Jason Momoa as the titular role and having James Wan write and direct with a stellar cast to boot it is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated films to come out next year.

Speaking to GQ Magazine, Momoa was asked about a few Aquaman-related topics, mainly playing the role and what sort of tone we will see in the film.

When Aquaman comes out it will be the first big-screen live-action take on the beloved DC Comics character, so unlike with Batman and Superman, Momoa is the one to set the stage in playing the role. “We’ve never really seen anything from this guy before, so it’s fun to have a level playing field,” Momoa said. “There aren’t like four Aquamans before me. I get to set the tone for it.”

Given that Momoa himself is a multi-ethnic person, having Native American, Hawaiian, Irish, and many more ethnicities in his blood, we will see an Arthur Curry (aka Aquaman) who is that person, a sort of outcast as Momoa explained: “The guy 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.”

Recently Momoa shared his excitement to have Temuera Morrison play his character's father, Thomas Curry, on Instagram. This is definitely a sign that their on-screen chemistry will more than likey be tremendously strong.

Nicole Kidman, has also been confirmed to play Atlanna, who is Arthur Curry's mother, and we can only assume that Momoa will have just as strong relationship with her on and off screen as he has with Morrison.

Aquaman will be directed by James Wan from a script written by Wan, Will Beall, and DC Films co-head Geoff Johns.

Jason Momoa stars as Arthur Curry aka Aquaman, along with Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm, Yahya Abdul-Manteen II as Black Manta, with Nicole Kidman as Atlanna and Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry.

Production will take place in Australia and Italy with the former being the first location for filming, which commence in May.

It is expected to release December 21, 2018.
