Jason Momoa assures ‘whole origin story’ in ‘Aquaman’

Washington: Jason Momoa, who will be next seen in the superhero ensemble ‘Justice League’, has revealed that his own solo flick will tell the complete origin story of ‘Aquaman’.

According to Contactmusic, the 38-year-old actor shared that fans would see a young Arthur Curry aka Aquaman in the James Wan directorial.

While talking to a leading U.S. publication, Momoa noted, “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.”

The ‘Game of Thrones’ star also noted that the movie would explore the history, which exists under the sea.

“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,” noted Momoa.

‘Aquaman’ will team up with The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Batman (Ben Affleck) for the first time in an attempt to take down Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons in Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League,’ which is slated to release on November 17.

Helmed by James Wan, ‘Aquaman’ also stars Amber Heard and Patrick Wilson in pivotal roles.

The flick is scheduled to release on December 21, 2018. (ANI)
