In preparation for his front-and-center role as the titular superhero in DC’s upcoming film Aquaman, Jason Momoa received some advice from X-Men star Michael Fassbender.
In a recent interview promoting Aquaman, Momoa revealed that the Academy Award-nominated actor who plays the younger version of Magneto in the X-Men films gave him a bit of insight in bringing one’s own talents to a big role like Aquaman:
“This is the first time, and I try not to do the whole weird name-drop thing, but I have a dear friend who’s from Ireland, Michael Fassbender, and I got to spend some time with him, talking about [superhero roles], because he’s done X-Men and Jonah Hex, he’s been around it enough. He really told me to put in moments of me and find those moments that you can put you in the film so that it can shine through. He was a big influence for me and [I was} doing that a lot in Aquaman. So thanks, buddy!”
It is quite nice to hear Jason Momoa express his respect and admiration for an actor like Michael Fassbender. Just to hear that he received advice from him is exciting in and of itself, but the fact that we also know that the two are friends in real life is also pretty cool. Just imagine all of the fan art involving both characters now just hanging out having a good time!
