“It’s exciting because I haven’t made too many sequels,” states Momoa in an interview with Fandango. “I just know that it’s, even on the page, it’s absolutely wonderful. There is so much going on. I think the stakes are a lot higher. There’s a lot of comedy. So, I mean, I giggled reading it. There’s a lot of fun, and definitely the action’s [bigger].”
The actor went on to talk about the technical advancements since the first film, adding that: “I think just in the last three or four years, technology is constantly [evolving]. It’s just moving at such a rapid pace that what we’re doing with underwater [sequences], I mean, that’s what made the first one so amazing. It’s just gone on to a whole other level, so I’m excited for everyone because it’s just a lot more heart. There’s a lot more at risk.”
