Jason Momoa continues to be bombarded with questions about his role as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He still has yet to confirm the news himself, but during a Q&A session at Evolution Expo he offered a little insight into what kind of comic book character he would like to play. He doesn't mention anything about Aquaman, but by the way he talks, it sounds like Aquaman could be an anti-hero in the film. Here's what he said when asked about Aquaman:
I think it would be really, really fun to play a superhero. You know? I’ve always talked about, like, what’s your favorite. I mean I love Lobo so… but ah… You know. It would be awesome. I don’t know how they do it but… Yea, absolutely I think it would…I just don’t really see myself as a superhero. Yeah, no I mean, they’re kind of written a little different. I don’t know. I just… you know. I’m not wearing a lot of the…I don’t see myself in tights a lot. And ah…I’m more of a, I don’t know, an anti-hero if you will. In life. So, not the smiling, parading to saving the world kind of guy. Yeah, the Hulk would have been fun!
I think it's easy to see Aquaman as an anti-hero, someone who sees himself as a defender of the oceans and enemy of surface dwellers. I also think Momoa would be awesome in the role. If anyone can help turn Aquaman into a badass, it's Momoa.
