For a long time, Justice League has been a tight lipped DC project but that just changed thanks to Jason Momoa. A conversation with the actor appeared on SFX magazine revealing interesting details about the character and how he’s been portrayed in the upcoming film.

Unfortunately, it looks like fans won’t get to see him as the Atlantean prince who represents his people and as the heir to the throne in Justice League. Rather, his first big screen appearance’s portrayal would be similar to that of Cyborg. Here’s what he had to say (via: Comicbookmovie):
“Aquaman, he’s not even really Aquaman yet,” he reveals. “He’s not the King of the Seven Seas. We don’t really get there until my solo movie, at the end. Really, it’s a huge growth for me. It’s a gigantic arc for Arthur Curry. It may be tough for a lot of fans to watch what they’re gonna see, how i portray him. But you gotta wait until we get to the solo movie to really know. Because he’s not King yet.”
“He doesn’t believe in himself, he doesn’t know what to do with the powers he has,” Momoa continued. “He’s going through tons of loss. He hates Atlanteans. The fact that people are calling ‘Aquaman’ right now – he couldn’t give two sh*ts about anything Atlantean. So he’s really not quite there yet.”
A lot of the revelation by Momoa was hinted in the trailers. The recent final trailer also had a moment which gave a glimpse of Aquaman’s personality. Furthermore, this also questions who could be the current king of Atlantis? If it is none other than Ocean Master, can fans expect Patrick Wilson’s cameo or perhaps a mention in the film?
Momoa also stated that fans would have to remain patient as the portrayal of Aquaman in Justice League might not be accepted by all at the start. “That’s kind of tough to play,” Momoa pointed out. “We gotta figure out the origin, where we’re going. Some people will be like, ‘This isn’t my Aquaman. ‘But we’re not there yet.”
This further suggests that the character will be truly explored in the upcoming standalone film. Till then, it looks like fans would have to wait to see the character tap on to his true potential.
