In an exclusive piece from Total Magazine, bracing for the November release of Justice League, the publication caught up with a member shrouded in mystery — Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa. Though not much is known as to where Arthur Curry is at with his Atlantean family when we meet him in Justice League, Momoa told fans what to expect when his character meets his fellow League members — spoiler alert: he’s not all smiles about it.
Right off the bat, with an exclusive photo from Total Film, Arthur Curry is seen speeding his way through the water and he does not look pleased. Could it be right after his first encounter with Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne? Or could he be after something? See for yourself in the image below:
If you’re thinking this is a front and he’s just a big sweetheart once he meets his work family in Justice League, that doesn’t seem to be the case — especially with Ray Fisher’s Cyborg.
“Me and Cyborg do not get along at all. I don’t trust him as far as I can throw him,” Momoa told Total Film magazine. “Over time, that will change. It’s the same thing with Bruce [Wayne]. I’m like, ‘Nah, I’m not buying into it.”
But those are only two of the members. As it turns out, Aquaman could have a soft spot for both Flash and Wonder Woman. Momoa refers to Ezra Miler as “a younger brother” both on-screen and off — which is pretty evident from every panel/interview. Momoa also called Gal Gadot “literally one of the most beautiful human beings that has ever existed.” No one is going to argue with him there. As for Superman? Well, Henry Cavill is doing what Superman does — showing Momoa the ropes, saying Cavill is “the one who taught me the most… He gave me all the pointers.”
It shouldn’t be news that Batman and Cyborg are a bit closed off and secretive compared to Wonder Woman and Flash, but it does seem like even the most hardcore of members such as Aquaman warms up to the team eventually.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League will be released in theaters on Nov. 17.
