Jason Mamoa has long been rumoured to be playing Aquaman- and with the announcement of DC’s long term movie plan, this was officially confirmed and the actor has now broken his silence on the role.
Jason Mamoa had this to say in his interview about the role: “I was asked to play it. You know, you audition and stuff like that, but the fact is you’ve just got to keep it quiet,” he told ComicBook.com.
“You know what I mean, I was just trying to respect Warner Bros and everyone’s wishes.I’m really, really happy that I don’t have to be quiet anymore, because that’s really hard for me.”
However it does appear that despite breaking his silence- Mamoa still only knows as much as the rest of us about the upcoming project: “I don’t know the director,” he confessed. “I know about as much as you guys know. I know the Justice League will come first. That’s really what we’re going to focus on. I’m not sure if it will be prior to Justice League or post. I don’t know too much about it.
“It will probably be where he came from. It will probably be his whole origin story I would think.”
