JUSTICE LEAGUE: Aquaman Actor Jason Momoa Defends The Movie After Its Negative Critical Reception

Justice League has taken quite a kicking from a lot of critics, but Jason Momoa is taking it all in his stride and refusing to let the negativity get him down. Find out what he had to say after the jump...

Warner Bros. won't exactly be ecstatic about Justice League's reception - both critical and commercial - but Aquaman star Jason Momoa is standing by the film and its director, Zack Snyder.

The former Game of Thrones actor was asked how he felt about the movie's performance during an interview with EW, and while he didn't go down the usual "we made it for the fans" route, he did defend the movie and his work in it, and revealed that he's staying away from the negativity as much as possible.

“I try to stay the f— away from what people say. Some of my friends said, ‘Justice League isn’t doing well’ and it kind of bummed me out. But I didn’t want to look it up. I don’t want to look up the bad and the negativity. I don’t think that’s useful; it doesn’t help.

I’ve seen [Justice League] twice. I loved it the second time even more. I’m actually going to watch it again with my kids and my godchild. I’m going to see it with the perfect crowd of people — a regular crowd instead of at a premiere. So I’m excited. You can’t get into the whole ‘why this, why that.’ I went to [Wizard World Austin fan convention] this weekend and got great praise. Now obviously, that’s a positive place, and I’m not only interested in the positive. But if people love what we did with Aquaman, it’s all [director Zack Snyder] — it’s his brainchild. He came in with, ‘I’m going to make Aquaman a badass and I’m going to change stuff, and change the myths about this guy.’ And I busted my ass.”

Despite the mixed/poor reviews, most would agree that Momoa's take on Arthur Curry was a good one, and look forward to seeing the character expanded upon in James Wan's solo Aquaman flick.
