Jason Momoa and James Wan Talk Aquaman

No Comments

After his cameo in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Jason Momoa went on to play Aquaman in 2017's Justice League. Although most of Aquaman's story wound up on the cutting room floor, Momoa's performance as Arthur Curry was a Justice League highlight.

The superhero will make his solo film debut in 2018’s James Wan-directed Aquaman. The actor told Entertainment Weekly that the film will further explain some unexplored Justice League threads, including the character’s intricate relationship with the Atlanteans.

The actor also told EW, which published the film’s first official photo, that his character will be completely different in the solo movie from the Aquaman we saw in Justice League. While Justice League gave us just a brief taste, Aquaman will explore his life from childhood to the present day.

Justice League was only a weekend in Arthur Curry's life. This is a totally different beast. In Aquaman, you see how his parents met and what happened to them. Then the little boy being raised and finding his powers, and going through that, and never being accepted on either side. And then becoming this man who puts up all these walls. You just slowly see this man harden up and be completely reluctant, wanting to be king and not knowing what to do with these powers he has.

James Wan also emphasized that Aquaman will be completely different from Justice League. The movie will be a more traditional action-adventure quest film, and the center of attention will be Aquaman.

It's going to look very different, it will feel very different – aesthetically, tonally, story-wise – it's my own take. It's a much more a traditional action-adventure quest movie.

One important detail – a shirtless Arthur Curry – will remain the same!

Aquaman will be released on December 21, 2018.
