Fans have gotten quite a bit of news from the recent Justice League press event in London. The cast spoke on how they hope Justice League‘s themes can shed light on real world problems just as Wonder Woman so expertly did. Superman himself, Henry Cavill, spoke out about the DCEU approach & why it hasn’t worked just yet; Cavill took this moment to give Wonder Woman the praise it forever deserves. Today, we have Jason Momoa telling us that Justice League‘s Aquaman isn’t isn’t quite the King of the Seven Seas as we know him to be just yet:
“It all kind of came from Zack [Snyder]’s mind. The one thing that was really concerning when I did my homework, I knew this was basically a weekend in his life. I just wanted to make sure the fans knew, we needed to know where he came from and why he’s this grumpy.”
He goes on to say:
“You’re gonna understand where he came from. What happened to his mother, what happened to his father. Sometimes he saved people and sometimes he lost people. His human side didn’t understand how to handle that. When we do get to the solo film, you’re gonna see the man who learned how to accept responsibility and becomes King. The Aquaman in this film isn’t quite Aquaman yet.”
What it sounds like to me is to not expect some huge character details and back story on Aquaman in this movie, as that’s something we’ll be getting in the solo movie. A bit disappointing to hear but it makes sense for this to be just a small moment in Aquaman and presumably Cyborg’s lives. I’m still really amped for this movie and you should be too! Be sure to catch Jason Momoa’s Aquaman debuting in Justice League November 17th!
