AQUAMAN Star Jason Momoa Met With The Russos About Playing A Villain In A Marvel Studios Movie

We know that Jason Momoa once met with Marvel Studios about taking on the role of Drax, but the Justice League star has now reflected on meeting with the Russos for a villainous character in the MCU...

Jason Momoa turned down the opportunity to play Drax because Marvel Studios wasn't offering enough money and the role eventually went to former WWE Superstar Dave Bautista. However, it sounds like the Aquaman and Justice League star talked to them about another character because he actually had a meeting with Captain America and Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo. 

"I met the Russo brothers, who are amazing," he confirmed. "It was one of the best meetings I’ve ever had. I was going to do something with them, which unfortunately didn’t work out." He doesn't elaborate on why but when Momoa was asked which character that was for, he added: "I don’t know. It was going to be a villain, I think. People always want to hire me to play a villain, you know?"

Chances are the Aquaman star met with them for the role of Crossbones in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as he wouldn't have been a good fit for Baron Zemo and it's highly unlikely they wanted him for Avengers: Infinity War or Avengers 4 when he's been hard at work on movies set in the DC Extended Universe.
