We confirmed that Jason Momoa would be playing Aquaman for you back in June of this year, and it's something that's been in the works for a lot longer than that. Until last week, though, Warner Bros. hadn't officially connected him to the role, and Momoa was still silent on the subject. Now that Warner Bros. has finally revealed their DC Universe game plan, with Momoa right there in the midst of it, the actor is able to discuss how excited he is about the role and his approach to it.
According to a report from this weekend's Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta, Momoa talked about the months of denials he's had to give to reporters asking him about the role. "Listen, I was asked to play it. You know, you audition and stuff like that, but the fact is you've just got to keep it quiet. You know what I mean? I was just trying to respect Warner Bros. and everyone's wishes. I'm really, really happy that I don't have to be quiet anymore, because that's really hard for me."
