Jason Momoa Promises "Whole Origin Story" In 'Aquaman'

The actor also teased the "pretty insane" ending to his solo flick.

Aquaman had long been an overlooked superhero from the world of DC Comics. Then, those working on at DC Films announced that he'd be coming to the DC Extended Universe, with Jason Momoa slotting into the role. At first, it seemed odd that the former 'Game of Thrones' actor would be the right man for Arthur Curry, King of the Seas, but since then he's proven that this take on Aquaman is one we can all get behind.

Making his live-action debut in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' in a fleeting scene, fans will get their first real dose of Aquaman action in the upcoming 'Justice League'. Released next month, Aquaman will team up with The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Batman (Ben Affleck) for the first time in an attempt to take down Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons.

The actor does however say the project is in its "very early days".

Aquaman is arguably one of the most interesting personalities we'll be seeing when 'Justice League' finally makes its way to the big screen. Though he has in the past been ridiculed for being a hero who 'just talks to fishes', long-time fans know that this isn't the case and recognise that his power actually far outweighs many of his DC superhero counterparts.

Former 'Game of Thrones' actor Jason Momoa is the man to bring Aquaman to the DC Extended Universe, with the big screen adaptation of the character being hugely different to much of what comic book readers have seen throughout the years. It looks like the change in his overall look won't be the only thing unique about this representation however, as Momoa has opened up more about his character's behaviour.

Jason Momoa Apologises For Rape Joke In Resurfaced Clip

By Ed Biggs in Lifestyle / Showbiz on 13 October 2017

A clip emerged of Momoa making an insensitive joke during a Comic-Con panel for 'Game of Thrones' back in 2011.

Former ‘Game of Thrones’ star Jason Momoa has apologised for an old video that has resurfaced from six years ago in which he brags about fictional rape.

At a Comic-Con panel back in 2011, in which Momoa featured alongside his fellow ‘GoT’ stars Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey, the star was asked about why he enjoyed the fantasy genre and how far he was allowed to go in depicting brutality.

“As far as sci-fi and fantasy, I love that genre because there are so many things you can do, like rip someone’s tongue out of their throat and get away with it and rape beautiful women,” the future Aquaman star replied.

The planet is in turmoil. Superman is apparently dead and crime rates have surged around the world as a result. But there's more than just petty theft and random assaults out there; mankind are under threat from an alien general named Steppenwolf who, with his terrible army of Parademons, are causing devastation as they search far and wide for three mysterious Mother Boxes hidden on Earth. The people need help, and so Bruce Wayne brings back Gotham's hero - Batman - and enlists the assistance of Wonder Woman to form a new legion of heroes. They, along with Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash, must protect the world from total destruction at the hands of Steppenwolf and, ultimately, his boss Darkseid. They're all very different heroes, with very different ideas about fighting villains, but there's one thing they all have in common - a desire for justice.
