With Justice League set to arrive in a few short weeks, the film's stars have doing their job to talk the film up. The latest is Jason Momoa, who was more than happy to explain how Aquaman fits into the superteam.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Momoa provided some insight on the dynamic Aquaman brings to the League. According to the actor, his hero is “a devil’s advocate," and "more of a reluctant hero.” “I’m kind of the one who doubts everything,” he said.
The DCEU's take on Aquaman is quite different from the conventional look of the character, something Momoa has readily admitted to for quite some time. However, the actor believes the film version is a natural adaptation of the character. “We’re definitely trying to honor the comics,” Momoa explained. “Polynesian people, obviously, we have tons of water gods. It’s kind of a neat thing that there’s a brown-skinned superhero.”
Justice League hits theaters November 17 and stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
