During a recent chat with The Daily Beast, Jason Momoa has opened up about his thoughts on bringing some (much needed) diversity to superhero movies with his upcoming turn as Aquaman in the DC Cinematic Universe: “Aquaman is especially cool, because, being a Kanaka Maoli—being Hawaiian—our Gods are Kanaloa and Maui, and the Earth is 71 percent water, so I get to represent that. And I’m someone who gets to represent all the islanders, not some blond-haired superhero. It’s cool that there’s a brown-skinned superhero.”
Jason Momoa will make his debut as Aquaman in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ next Spring, before appearing in ‘The Justice League Part One’ (2017), and then top-lining a stand-alone ‘Aquaman’ movie in 2018. “It’s awesome as an actor to know what your future is going to be because I have children and I’ve busted my ass to put food on the table,” he says. “It’s awesome knowing that I’m going to be in Justice League because my son is the biggest Batman fan and my daughter loves Wonder Woman. It’ll be cool for them to see me in something because they’re not going to be watching Game of Thrones or Red Road anytime soon, but now they can see Daddy kicking ass in IMAX.”
