Jason Momoa Researching New 52 For AQUAMAN Role; Asks Fans To "Keep An Open Mind"

The former Game Of Thrones star sat down for a Q&A at Dallas Comic-Con recently and shared a few interesting new tidbits about his upcoming turn as the King of Atlantis in the DCEU. If you weren't a fan of his look for the character, you might want to prepare for more alterations...

When Jason Momoa's Aquaman was unveiled for the first time, some fans were not best pleased with how different he looked from his comic book counterpart. Though it seems to have grown on a lot of people, from the sounds of things there are going to be a few more changes to get used to.

When the Conan The Barbarian actor appeared at Dallas Comic-Con he was quizzed about his take on the character and, though he couldn't go into too much detail, he did reveal that he's been researching the New 52 version of Aquaman, but that fans should "keep an open mind" about some of the "new things" they'll be doing for his big-screen outing.


“So, there’s not really a lot of spoilers I can give away. But the research I’ve done on the New 52 stuff with Geoff Johns, and just researching who he is, he’s amazing. He’s got a lot of powers. He’s extremely tough. He’s super strong. But I’m excited about... there’s a big beautiful map laid out and I wish I could carry it with me. It’ll come out soon enough and you’ll see just how big it’s going to be.”


Momoa went on to reiterate what an honor it was for him to be able to portray this character. You can check out the full video of the Q&A below. What do you think will be the most significant alteration to the comic book incarnation of Aquaman we'll be seeing?
