The actor reveals all in a new art book for the DCEU movie.
Aquaman is a DC Comics superhero who doesn't quite get the attention he deserves, mostly because he comes from the ocean and has powers that allow him to communicate with all sorts of sea life underwater. Many see that as a bit of a useless talent when all is said and done, but those who have taken the time to read through some of the better 'Aquaman' comic books know he's just as brilliant as some of the biggest household names in the DC Universe.
Jason Momoa stars as Aquaman in 'Justice League' and returns for a solo movie in 2018
When it was revealed former 'Game of Thrones' star Jason Momoa would be the man to bring the King of Atlantis to the big screen, eyebrows were raised as it quickly became obvious the character would be going through a major change in appearance. Adding tattoos to the mix and more muscles than we've ever seen on the Atlantean, he really helps bring the hero into the modern world.
The actor plays Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman in the new DCEU flick.
With 'Justice League' now finally in movie theatres, it's fair to say that the latest DC Extended Universe release has done what most of those that came before it did with the critics and wider viewing public, splitting opinion right down the middle. Wherever you sit on the spectrum of opinions, what's obvious is that this is a film that went through some of the biggest changes possible before hitting the big screen.
Jason Momoa stars as Aquaman in the DCEU's new release 'Justice League'
Zack Snyder is officially the director of 'Justice League', but the filmmaker was forced to cede the movie to Joss Whedon following a family tragedy. This led to scenes being reshot, lines being re-written and some being cut from proceedings entirely, despite featuring in trailers that led up to the film's release.

The star can first be seen in 'Justice League' later this month.
When Jason Momoa was first revealed as the actor to be taking on the DC Extended Universe's version of Aquaman, many long-time fans of the superhero raised their brow. He didn't look the part of the regular Arthur Curry, but perhaps he was the gruff addition to the versions of the DC character that was needed for casual comic book movie fans to really take him seriously. Plus, he had already proven how great of an actor he was in such projects as 'Game of Thrones'.

Whilst we all got our first glimpse of Momoa in action in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', the moment was a fleeting one and so, we're all waiting to see exactly what he brings to 'Justice League' this month to see if the casting was a perfect one, or a terrible shot in the dark. We're hoping for the former.

He's called her his wife for years, but now it's the real deal.
Jason Momoa is officially off the market as it's revealed that he secretly married his partner Lisa Bonet last month - despite the fact that they were rumoured to have been married ten years previously. They managed to sidestep the press, despite having a number of celebrity guests in attendance.

The couple, who have been dating since 2005, already have two children together - 10-year-old Lola and 8-year-old Nakoa-Wolf - but it's only this year that they decided to tie the knot at their own home after picking up a marriage license on October 2nd.

The actor also teased the "pretty insane" ending to his solo flick.
Aquaman had long been an overlooked superhero from the world of DC Comics. Then, those working on at DC Films announced that he'd be coming to the DC Extended Universe, with Jason Momoa slotting into the role. At first, it seemed odd that the former 'Game of Thrones' actor would be the right man for Arthur Curry, King of the Seas, but since then he's proven that this take on Aquaman is one we can all get behind.

Making his live-action debut in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' in a fleeting scene, fans will get their first real dose of Aquaman action in the upcoming 'Justice League'. Released next month, Aquaman will team up with The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Batman (Ben Affleck) for the first time in an attempt to take down Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons.

The actor does however say the project is in its "very early days".
Aquaman is arguably one of the most interesting personalities we'll be seeing when 'Justice League' finally makes its way to the big screen. Though he has in the past been ridiculed for being a hero who 'just talks to fishes', long-time fans know that this isn't the case and recognise that his power actually far outweighs many of his DC superhero counterparts.

Former 'Game of Thrones' actor Jason Momoa is the man to bring Aquaman to the DC Extended Universe, with the big screen adaptation of the character being hugely different to much of what comic book readers have seen throughout the years. It looks like the change in his overall look won't be the only thing unique about this representation however, as Momoa has opened up more about his character's behaviour.

A clip emerged of Momoa making an insensitive joke during a Comic-Con panel for 'Game of Thrones' back in 2011.
Former ‘Game of Thrones’ star Jason Momoa has apologised for an old video that has resurfaced from six years ago in which he brags about fictional rape.
At a Comic-Con panel back in 2011, in which Momoa featured alongside his fellow ‘GoT’ stars Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey, the star was asked about why he enjoyed the fantasy genre and how far he was allowed to go in depicting brutality.
“As far as sci-fi and fantasy, I love that genre because there are so many things you can do, like rip someone’s tongue out of their throat and get away with it and rape beautiful women,” the future Aquaman star replied.

The planet is in turmoil. Superman is apparently dead and crime rates have surged around the world as a result. But there's more than just petty theft and random assaults out there; mankind are under threat from an alien general named Steppenwolf who, with his terrible army of Parademons, are causing devastation as they search far and wide for three mysterious Mother Boxes hidden on Earth. The people need help, and so Bruce Wayne brings back Gotham's hero - Batman - and enlists the assistance of Wonder Woman to form a new legion of heroes. They, along with Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash, must protect the world from total destruction at the hands of Steppenwolf and, ultimately, his boss Darkseid. They're all very different heroes, with very different ideas about fighting villains, but there's one thing they all have in common - a desire for justice.

Now officially a part of the 'Arrowverse' after the series moved from its original home of CBS to The CW after its first season, there's a plethora of different opportunities that could present themselves for the writers, cast and crew involved on 'Supergirl', but one we didn't think possible is exactly what McGrath wants to happen.
