AQUAMAN Star Jason Momoa Says His DUNE Character Is The Movie's Han Solo

In a new interview, Jason Momoa (Justice League) sheds some light on the character he plays in Denis Villeneuve's Dune, and likens him to Star Wars character Han Solo! Read on for details...

The curtain is finally being pulled back on Denis Villeneuve's planned two-part adaptation of Frank Herbert's 1965 novel Dune, and during a recent appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show, star Jason Momoa dropped some fresh details about his character Duncan Idaho. 

In fact, he even compared him to iconic Star Wars hero, Han Solo, giving him big shoes to fill! 

"I get to play this character Duncan Idaho, who's kind of a master swordsman who's made the right hand man to Duke Leto who is Oscar Isaac," the Aquaman star reveals. "He's the first person to be sent out to land on Dune and that's when I meet the character that Javier Bardem plays."

"I can't believe I had a scene with Javier Bardem!" Momoa continued. "It's a pretty massive film and I get to be this little—he’s kind of the Han Solo-esque of the group. He's this rogue warrior who protects Timothée Chalamet and serves Oscar Isaac."

It's certainly sounding like a very different role for Momoa, and after getting used to seeing him as a superhero, it will be exciting watching the actor show off a few other skills on the big screen!

Directed by Denis Villeneuve from a script he co-wrote with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts, Dune also stars Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Stellan Skarsgård, Javier Bardem, Charlotte Rampling, Dave Bautista, David Dastmalchian, Zendaya, Stephen Henderson, and Josh Brolin. The movie is currently set to be released on December 18th, 2020.
