Jason Momoa Thought He Was Going To Play A Batman Villain At First (Video)

Watch video below of Jason Momoa‘s recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Jason Momoa talks how following Game of Thrones, he couldn’t get any work and attributed it to the mistaken thought that some people had regarding him not being able to speak english. Momoa then says Zack Snyder gave him a big break and cast him as Aquaman, but Momoa says he thought Snyder was going to cast him as a Batman villain.

“Yeah, that whole audition process was pretty crazy,” Momoa said. “I mean, Zack was a huge fan of Game of Thrones. A lot of people are huge fans of Game of Thrones. Zack was the one – I couldn’t get a job – and Zack called me in. He was a huge fan. He wanted to take Aquaman who… It was funny because I had no idea what I was going to be playing. He just called me in. I had an audion that was for Batman. Obviously, Ben was cast. I’m like, ‘What am I coming in for?’ I’m like, ‘Basically I’m going to be the bad guy. I’m going to fight Batman and Superman. I’m going to play the villain.’ And he’s like, ‘Wait, no. Aquaman.’ And I was like [nods]. I’m like, ‘Blond. White. Shaven. Blond. White,'” Moama explained. “Yeah. Right now it’s Thank you, Game of Thrones. Now I’m Aquaman.” 

Zack Snyder cast Jason Momoa first for a cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which was followed by last year’s Justice League movie. Jason Momoa will next star as the character in James Wan’s Aquaman, which has a December 21, 2018 release date also starring Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm the Ocean Master, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, with Temuera Morrison as Aquaman’s father, Thomas Curry, Nicole Kidman is playing the mother to Aquaman, Queen Atlanna, and Dolph Ludgren is King Nereus.
