According to Aquaman star Jason Momoa, the movie will tell the origins of Arthur Curry and the lost city of Atlantis. Justice League’s marketing team has already done a great job of maximizing Jason Momoa’s Aquaman in the Justice League trailers, and many fans are anxiously awaiting Aquaman’s solo movie which is still more than a year away from release.
Very soon, however, Aquaman is all DC fans will be seeing as filming has wrapped up and marketing is under way, and Jason Momoa wants to make sure this movie is marketed well. It is important to take note that Aquaman will only be a warrior in Justice League, and not king of Atlantis. His ascension to the throne will take place during Aquaman the movie. It will be a movie containing Aquaman’s full origin story and growth. As Jason Momoa puts it,
“It’s the whole origin story, for sure. You’ll see young Arthur and everything. It goes from before he was born…it’s the whole mythology of it.
It’s unbelievable where we start in this movie, and where we end up. Right now, I’m [filming] all the end stuff and it’s pretty insane. I hate comparing things, but when I watch Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, you see all these amazing worlds and the places they go, and you watch Star Wars and they do battles in space. Well, what do you think is going to happen underwater? There are so many cool worlds we’re going to, and my character definitely goes on a big adventure and you travel the world with him.”
