“IT’S THE HARDEST MOVIE I’VE DONE IN MY LIFE”
Jason Momoa is Aquaman
We’ve met Arthur in Justice League. What new aspect will we see here?
everything. you see his mother and father and him being a child and growing up and then being separated from his mother. He’s not accepted. if you’ve been told your whole life that you’re this chosen one, and then you’re treated as a half-breed and a piece of crap, you revolt against everything. then, you get to see that man who is alone open up, and he has a lot to offer the world, and the world needs his beauty.
What is the scope of his relationship with Amber Heard’s Mera?
We get to show each other our different worlds, so she gets to see what’s beautiful on the surface and he gets to see what’s beautiful underneath, and that it’s worth saving both worlds.
How was the wirework for the water sequences?
if there’s a sequel, i can’t wait to re-think all the ways we’re going to change the harnesses! We’ve got so many ideas. it really does wear you out, too, and you can freeze when you get hosed down with water. thank goodness we shot in Australia!
Did you enjoy the stunt work?
Aquaman is the hardest movie i’ve done in my life, physically, and i had two stunt doubles. Both of them got hurt, and so did i. the sheer amount of stunts and action in this was insane. you’re fighting in a 40-pound suit, and by the end you’re in a soup of you... And i don’t like my soup!
