Jason Momoa had a cameo as Aquaman on Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but on November 17, that changes. He has a bigger role in the highly anticipated, JUSTICE LEAGUE, which will then be followed by his own solo film, Aquaman on December 21,2018.
Recently, Momoa spoke to GQ Magazine about bringing the character to the big screen.
“We’ve never really seen anything from this guy before, so it’s fun to have a level playing field. There aren’t like four Aquamans before me. I get to set the tone for it.”
Asking yourself already, what can we expect?
“The guy was never really accepted on land, and he was never really accepted in Atlantis. He’s a half-breed. But he’s the best of both worlds. He just doesn’t know how to handle his powers. So it’s kind of a coming of age for a young man to a man, or a man to a king. He’s lost a lot of things and he’s got to cope. He’s an outsider.”
Momoa is joined alongside Amber Heard as Mere, Queen of Atlantis, Nicole Kidman as Aquaman’s mother Atlanna, Temeura Morrison as Aquaman’s father, Patrick Wilson as Aquaman’s brother, Orm aka Ocean Master, Yahva Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, and Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus. James Wan is directing.

James Cromwell has revealed that his JURASSIC WORLD 2 character has ties to the original film.
Following the announcement that Jeff Goldblum will return for the sequel, another connection to the original film, Jurassic Park has been revealed.
Cromwell recently was interviewed by Larry King and he revealed some detaild regarding the upcominh sequel:
“The character Richard Attenborough played, I’m his partner Benjamin Lockwood. We developed the technology of being able to clone the genes, and so I’m trying to deal with the blow back from what we have done.”
Based on the events of Jurassic World, it sounds like Cromwell’s Lockwood will have kind of like a rivalry with B.D Wong’s Dr. Wu, who helped create the Indominus Rex that essentially destroyed the fully-functional park.
Jurassic World 2 also stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard alongside Toby Jones, Daniella Pineda, Justice Smith and Rafe Spall.
J.A Bayona directs. Frank Marshall and Steven Spielberg return to produce.

Check out this new poster that STX Entertainment has released for Luc Besson’s new film, VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANET, which can be seen down below!
Based on the classic European graphic novel series “Valerian and Laureline” (specifically the sixth book, “Ambassador of the Shadows”), Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planet stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne as the title characters, special operatives for the government of the human territories and charged with maintaining order throughout the universe. Valerian has more in mind than a professional relationship with his partner, blatantly chasing after her with proportions of romance. But his extensive history for women, and her traditional values, drive Laureline to continuously rebuff him.
Under directive from their Commander (Clive Owen), Valerian and Laureline embark on a mission to the breathtaking intergalactic city of Alpha, an ever-expanding metropolis comprised of thousands of different species from all four corners of the universe. Alpha’s seventeen million inhabitants have converged over time– uniting their talents, technology and resources for the betterment of all. Unfortunately, not everyone on Alpha shares in these same objectives; in fact, unseen forces are at work, placing our race in great danger.
Written and directed by Besson, and produced by Besson-Silla. Also starring Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Herbie Hancock and Kris Wu.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets hits theaters on July 21.
