A standout character of the recent Justice League movie was Aquaman. Jason Momoa’s portrayal of Arthur Curry received good reviews from the fans. It has already been announced that Aquaman would be getting his own solo film directed by James Wan. There’s no set release date but there could well be another 12 months between now and us seeing Aquaman on the big screen again.
As far as the film has gone, we know that principal photography has officially wrapped. The plot of the film is still kept under wraps for the most part but its safe to assume that it might have to do with the origin of Aquaman and how he came to the throne. His parents in the film will be played by Nicole Kidman and Temuera Morrison.
During a BTS special for the Justice League movie, Jason Momoa talked a little bit about his character and where he stands as well as the complicate mindset he deals with:
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.
Becoming the King of Atlantis is obviously quite the task to complete but seeing as strong willed as he was in ‘Justice League’, we should get quite the show in Aquaman. There was a ton of personality within his character and it’ll be exciting to see him in his own solo film where he can really show himself.
