JUSTICE LEAGUE Star Jason Momoa Explains Why So Many Of Aquaman's Scenes Were Cut

Justice League delivered the bare bone versions of Aquaman, Cyborg, and the Flash, and now Jason Momoa has explained why exactly so many of Arthur Curry's scenes ended up on the cutting room floor.

While Justice League did a solid enough job of introducing new characters like Aquaman, Cyborg, and the Flash, it's clear many of their scenes were cut. For example, Arthur Curry was supposed to visit Atlantis and spend some time with Vulko, Vic Stone's origin story would have been fully revealed, and the Flash was supposed to save Iris West. However, we didn't get to see any of that in the movie. 

In a new interview, Jason Momoa weighed in on so much of Justice League ending up on the cutting room floor, explaining that it could have easily been a two-parter (which was the original plan) and that the scenes revolving around why Aquaman is the way he is will be tackled in the hero's solo movie.

"The challenging part is [the Justice League story] is only about a weekend in Author Curry’s life. [Fans] might be like, ‘Why is he that grumpy? Why’s he hiding up there?’ We had it all planned out. A lot of things got cut. But it’s not my movie. It’s a huge movie introducing three new characters, and for myself and The Flash and Cyborg, there was a lot that was there we just couldn’t get in. It could have been two movies. We had some stuff with William Dafoe. The whole Atlantean part, about me being this reluctant king. There was no need for it because you’re going to see it in Aquaman. It’s not an Aquaman movie, it’s a Justice League movie."

It's all well and good saving that stuff for James Wan's Aquaman but it doesn't really help Justice League and it definitely would have been good to spend some more time with the newer members of the team. Whether these scenes will end up on the Blu-ray remains to be seen but most will probably never be seen. That's a shame but at least we'll learn more about the character next December.
