The Aquaman solo film will be out next year and even though we have a fair wait ahead of us, Jason Momoa has shared his insights into the nature of his character and his state of mind ahead of the film’s release. We first saw the iconic character briefly in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and again in DC’s most recent film Justice League. In next year’s solo film we should expect to see the character head towards his rightful place as the King of Atlantis.
James Wan directed the film, and principal photography has just completed. The exact details of the plot have not been released in their entirety but with Atlanna (Nicole Kidman), the former queen of Atlantis and Thomas Curry (Temuera Morrison) we can expect to be taken on an origin journey.
Within the ‘behind the scenes’ look of Justice League, Jason Momoa opens up about his iconic character:
“When we find Arthur, he’s hiding on the edges of society. He knows what his power is, but he doesn’t know how to channel it. He hasn’t accepted himself as king. He’s been running from both sides, human and Antlantean, and he’s been really that outlaw and renegade and the rebel.”
With the events that took place in Justice League, Steppenwolf was able to take control of one of the motherboxes that was being protected by the Atlanteans, Aquaman steps in to prevent the super-villian from doing so and as an extension to this we are expected be taken deeper into Aquaman’s past and his journey moving forward.
