There's still an awful lot we don't know about Justice League but Jason Momoa has now dropped some fresh details on Arthur Curry's story arc and it's going to play out much differently than expected. If you thought the movie would introduce us to the character as he's already ruling over Atlantis, you'd be wrong. As it turns out, Aquaman has no interest in embracing his fate when Bruce Wayne finds him.

"Aquaman, he's not even really Aquaman yet," he reveals. "He's not the King of the Seven Seas. We don't really get there until my solo movie, at the end. Really, it's a huge growth for me. It's a gigantic arc for Arthur Curry. It may be tough for a lot of fans to watch what they're gonna see, how I portray him. But you gotta wait until we get to the solo movie to really know. Because he's not King yet."
 
"He doesn't believe in himself, he doesn't know what to do with the powers he has," Momoa continued. "He's going through tons of loss. He hates Atlanteans. The fact that people are calling him 'Aquaman' right now - he couldn't give two sh*ts about anything Atlantean. So he's really not quite there yet." Does this mean Ocean Master is in charge of Atlantis? It seems like a pretty safe bet.
 
Regardless, Momoa was quick to point out that fans will have to be patient because the Aquaman we meet in Justice League won't be instantly familiar to fans of the comics. "That's kind of tough to play," Momoa pointed out. "We gotta figure out the origin, where we're going. Some people will be like, 'This isn't my Aquaman.' But we're not there yet." Are you excited for this new take on the hero?

That actually sounds quite interesting, i like it. It's pretty weird though that he just casually tells us what happens at the end of a movie still 1 year away.

@TheManWithoutFear - Remember when he told a guy he could punch him in the face if it turned out he was Aquaman? Jason Momoa doesn't know how to keep a secret, he's like a big kid that has to talk nonsense or risk spilling the beans. There's no middle ground with him.

@obarium - I've been rewatching Stargate Atlantis, and it's fun to see him hit his groove in the third season. Whatever definition you have of "a good actor", I'm not sure Momoa fits it. But he's undeniably engaging when he's "on". He really is like a giant puppy at times.

@Spock0Clock - Yeah, if nothing else, he seems like he would be a ton of fun to hang out with. The Game Of Thrones show runners always say they would bring Momoa back if they could bring any character back from the dead. They love the guy.

Oh *SPOILERS FOR GAME OF THRONES SEASON 1* ^^^

@obarium @TheManWithoutFear - Yeah, it’s also the same person who said he likes sci-fi roles because then he gets to rape beautiful women. The guys obviously doesn’t think before he speaks and isn’t too bright...

People never gave two shits about Aquaman, matter of fact they always made fun of him, now we finally get to see him on the big screen and suddenly they start saying stuff like "my Aquaman, not my Aquaman"?

@Doomsday8888 - Yeah. Same with Fantastic Four. It got to the point where the comic was cancelled at least partially because of low sales (i.e. no one cared to buy) and yet we're apparently clamoring for an MCU take on it and are legitimately angry at the Fox treatment of it. It's almost like we just like to find stuff to complain about.

@Doomsday8888 - Very true.

Let me say clearly: I don't have an Aquaman.

Now, I most certainly do have a Question, a Blue Beetle, and an Elongated Man. The DCEU had better come correct if they start messing with those characters.

@Doomsday8888 - Exactly. People don't know what they want despite telling themselves that they know what they want. Most of the time that's just so they can listen to themselves to feel relevant.

@Doomsday8888 - You can make fun of something and still know how it's supposed to be portrayed, hell you can still like it even. People make Batman jokes all the time, that doesn't change that they'll get mad when someone does something obviously wrong with the character.

Obviously I can only speak for myself, but when I get mad at this Aquaman, I get mad because I see a course correction for a problem that doesn't exist. For every "talks to fish" joke, there's someone with a screencap of Aquaman riding Cthulhu. For every clip of Superfriends Aquaman, there's a moment of awesome from animated Justice League punching that stupidity in the face.

And it's hard to watch people try so damn hard to make Aquaman cool, and decide that the best way to do that is to turn him into some stupid party animal who sounds more like Lobo. You want people to take the character seriously? Treat the character seriously. It's not like serious versions don't exist.

But of course, "gotta get that humor in there", because WB is incapable of grasping that the biggest problems with their previous films wasn't the tone.

@Origame - Hey. I actually do care about the Fantastic Four.

...So, watch it, buddy.
