Jason Momoa Talks 'Aquaman'; Confirms 'Batman V Superman' Role?

Jason Momoa in The Red Road

Now that the silence has been broken surrounding Jason Momoa's role as Aquaman in DC Comics' upcoming shared movie universe - launching with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice - the actor, too, has broken his own silence, after being forced to dodge a confirmation for months. With promising words on just how much the role means to him personally, what kind of vision director Zack Snyder has in mind, and an apparent confirmation that fans won't need to wait until Justice League to see him, his first comments may even turn a few skeptics.

We've already explained why an Aquaman played by a native Hawaiian would be an idea worth exploring in Zack Snyder's Justice League, and speaking at Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta, GA, fans got their first opportunity to ask the man himself. Unsurprisingly, Momoa told those in attendance that his ancestry (half Hawaiian, half Native American) is, indeed, on his mind.

A full transcript or video hasn't surfaced yet, but a few details have surfaced. Beyond teasing that the classic green tights worn by Aquaman would "match his eyes," Momoa offered even more context for the previous claims of a "tattooed, Hawaiian" Arthur Curry.
