“It was funny because I had no idea what I was going to be playing,” Momoa continued. “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.”
