Jason Momoa apparently received advice on playing Aquaman from Magneto himself, Michael Fassbender.
There is a certain fellowship among comic book movie actors and this seems to include Magneto actor Michael Fassbender and Jason Momoa as the former offered the Aquaman star some acting advice.
Speaking to RTE while promoting Aquaman, Momoa revealed that the X-Men star offered him some inspirational advice. Momoa said that Fassbender suggested that he put himself into the character whenever possible:
“He really told me to put in moments of me and find those moments that you can put you in the film so that it can shine through.”
When asked if he took the advice, Momoa humorously responded: “Unfortunately, yes.”
We will see if Fassbender’s wisdom paid off when Aquaman hits cinemas later this month. Let us know how you think Momoa’s performance will stack up with his past turns as the character…
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman”, starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime — one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be … a king.”
Aquaman is directed by James Wan (The Conjuring) and stars Jason Momoa as the titular hero, reprising his role from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, along with Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Dr. Vulko, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry, Ludi Lin as Murk, Michael Beach as Jesse Kane, Djimon Hounsou as the Fisherman King, Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin, Otis Dhanji as a young Arthur Curry, Julie Andrews as Karathen and Graham McTavish in an as-yet-unrevealed role. It is set for release on December 14th in the UK and December 21st in North America.
