Aquaman star Jason Momoa, who is very much still in superhero shape, claims to have not worked out in at least a year.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Momoa dished on the stunts in the new DC Film when his co-star Amber Heard noted Momoa “loves working out.” The actor was quick to correct Heard, explaining that he much prefers rock climbing to actually working out:
“Absolutely f—ing not … I love rock climbing, but I do not love working out. I haven’t worked out in at least a year and it’s been awesome.”
Momoa did, however, work out with his co-star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II during the production of Aquaman which wrapped in October of 2017, only he says it was to avoid getting injured while performing his stunts in the film. Heard herself, endured a rigorous training regiment to prepare for her role, working with multiple trainers, four to five times a week to get into athletic shape.
Based on characters created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, the script has been written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and Will Beall based on a story by Geoff Johns, Wan and Beall. Peter Safran and Rob Cowan have produced the film with Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Jon Berg, Johns, and Walter Hamada serving as executive producers.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an acition-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Aquaman will be released in theaters on December 21, 2018.
