Axel-In-Charge: Navigating the "Civil War II" Landscape, Bringing DMC to Marvel
It’s all but officially announced that Jason Momoa will play Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Still, the veteran of Conan the Barbarian and Game of Thrones won’t confirm his involvement in the upcoming Warner Bros. film, even if he has plenty of thoughts on the superhero genre.
During an appearance over the weekend at Evolution Expo in Oakland, California, Momoa was asked whether he would ever seriously consider playing a superhero. While he didn’t drop the “A-bomb,” the actor made it clear he’s thought a lot about what it takes to bring a superhero to life.
Here’s what he had to say, according to Points of Geek:
“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!”
Momoa will likely get his shot at superhero stardom when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
