Jason Momoa “Can Really Relate” to Aquaman’s Story

Aquaman was one of the most anticipated characters in this year’s Justice League film and fans of the character will have much more to be excited about with Aquaman’s first solo outing scheduled for the end of 2018.

Jason Momoa stars as Arthur Curry/Aquaman in the DCEU and in a recent interview with The Daily Telegraph, he described that Aquaman’s story of diversity is relatable to him and many fans.

Momoa talked about Arthur Curry being “half and half” (meaning half human, half Atlantean) and that he hopes the character’s origin can serve as inspiration for others who feel that they are different.

Momoa said, “I can really relate, being born in Hawaii and raised in Iowa … [and him] coming from this Atlantis-Hawaii and not really feeling accepted in either place.”

Momoa pointed out that Arthur comes from a ‘broken home’ and hoped this too would resonate with viewers. Momoa said, “I think there’s a lot of kids out there that feel that from broken homes so it’s cool to see him deal with that.”
