Momoa talks about his Aquaman character in ‘Justice League’
When ET Canada sat down with Jason Mamoa, much of the focus was placed on his character, Aquaman in the upcoming Justice League film. When asked what his first thoughts were when he was first approached by Zack Snyder about playing Aquaman, he said “Dude, there was a lot of things that went through my head when he said Aquaman, there were a lot of things that went through my mind. I was thinking like, ‘Lobo.’ I’m gonna play some kind of bad guy. I’m like, ‘Who am I gonna play?’ And he said Aquaman. I was just like, ‘Come again? Pardon me?’ And then he explained why. I was like, ‘Whoa, buddy. I got your back’”. It seems that Mamoa was a fan of the vision of the cinematic Aquaman and may have had the same concerns that some people share with the character.
But when the trailer was played at San Diego Comic-Con 2016, he seemed to love how much of him was in the trailer. “I was like this is Aquaman propaganda, it was amazing. Zack is just… I love him to death. He’s amazing. And he’s been… Obviously, it’s his vision. He pulled me in to play it. He believed in me. You know, he changed my life. I owe the guy a lot. The stuff that he shot, just seeing the trailer was like, ‘Wow!’ Because everything that I. brought and wanted to bring, it’s all the hopes you want to bring to the character. He made sure that stuffed stayed in there.”
