Fans got their first look at Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry in a memorable but brief cameo appearance in last year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but they'll get to see a whole lot more of this iconic character in this year's Justice League, in theaters November 17. The actor is also prepping to star in his stand alone Aquaman movie, shedding new details about the story in a recent interview. According to the actor, this movie will take fans to places they've never seen before in a movie. When asked about what an Aquaman video game might look like if he were in charge, the actor had this to say.
"I read the Aquaman script and let me just put it this way, I've never seen a movie that's anything like this. It's going to be a world that you've never seen before, which is really cool. We went to space, »
How in the world would DC be able to handle Aquaman? That was a big question for fans, but it was likely an even bigger question for those mainstream fans whose only exposure to the character was either from the old Super Friends cartoon, or from the jokes in Family Guy.

Will Beall, the script writer for DC/WB’s upcoming Aquaman movie, promises that the film will not only have a tonal shift from previous Dceu films, but it will also “blow people’s minds”.

Aquaman is a character who doesn’t get a lot of respect. He’s usually considered a light weight. This probably goes back to the 1970s Super Friends cartoon, where he was written as being utterly useless, except to occasionally summon some fish telepathically. Now that he’s getting the big screen treatment, DC has a chance to change that image, and Jason Momoa seems like a good choice to show the king of the seas as a rugged, powerful fighter.
