'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' Spoiler: "It's still a movie about Batman and Superman," says Jason Momoa
Will Aquaman's introduction to 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' make it too crowded? How big of a role is Aquaman going to play in the movie? A recent interview made by Entertainment Weekly with actor Jason Momoa reveals a bit about how the character is going to appear in next year's highly-anticipated superhero blockbuster.
"It's Batman and Superman. It's not my movie. It's the first time in history to have them both on the screen together, and I'm just excited to see those two up there."
From Jason Momoa's comments, we can safely imply that Aquaman's presence in BvS:DoJ will most likely be a cameo or in a short scene. When it was first announced that the characters of Cyborg, Aquaman and Wonder Woman would appear on BvS, fans were divided as to whether or not this would be good for the film. For the most part, there were fears that having too many superheroes would put the focus away from the two main characters and thus ruin the purpose of the movie - pitting Batman and Superman against each other.
Luckily though, Momoa's recent comments adds to the assurance that BvS will, in fact, be a movie about Batman and Superman.
Many of the earliest fan speculations regarding Aquaman's role in the movie, according to an article written by HitFix's Drew McWeeny, involved him going to the surface world to investigate the destruction caused by the Kryptonians when they landed the World Engine on the Indian Ocean. Whether or not these rumors are true, we are assured that Aquaman's appearance in BvS will not steal the spotlight from the two main characters.
'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' premieres in theaters on March 6, 2015.
