Jason Momoa will soon be seen reprising the role of DC underwater superhero in upcoming film Aquaman which is already out in a few regions such as China, UK, India. Momoa first made a brief debut as Aquaman in the 2016 superhero film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and then reprised the role in 2017 ensemble Justice League.
During an appearance at The Graham Norton Show, Momoa was shown a scene from Justice League in which Arthur Curry plunges into cold water after Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne tries to recruit him for his superhero team. He followed up by revealing what actually went into filming the particular scene. He admitted that he made a huge mistake while shooting the scene that required him to wear a very specific wetsuit.
“We’re always out there for a while, so they have a very thin wetsuit that you put on, so you don’t freeze to death,” Momoa revealed. “It’s funny because I actually went out – they had a nice crane shot, they went out there in front of me. I was walking out, and you know, if you have a wetsuit on, the air gets kinda trapped in there.”
“And you’re just walking out and bubbles start coming up,” Momoa explained. “And right when it gets to the level that it’s at, all these bubbles come out like you farted. And the camera’s right there, and I start giggling because of the bubbles, because I can feel them go up too. And then I open it up to let the air out, and then all the cold went in. So my reaction was all like ‘Haha… Ohh!‘”
The 39-year-old actor recently performed a traditional Haka dance at the Aquaman premiere event along with his kids- son, Nakoa-Wolf, 9, and daughter, Lola, 11- and other cast members.

In the film Aquaman finds himself caught between a surface world that ravages the sea and the underwater Atlanteans who are ready to revolt.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman also features Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, and Dolph Lundgren in lead roles. The film will swim into theaters on December 21, 2018.
