After watching the Justice League trailer, it was pretty evident that Jason Momoa was the right guy for Aquaman. His comedic timing was great, and he brings a certain element of bad-ass to the role that Aquaman has often been missing.
With that casting decision looking like a slam dunk, the rest of the upcoming Aquaman movie cast has a lot to live up to. According to the King of Atlantis, the rest of the cast is crushing it as well.
Momoa took to Instagram to sing the praises of Patrick Wilson, who portrays his half-brother Orm The Oceanmaster.
In the post, which consisted of two selfies of the co-stars, Momoa acknowledged the incredible talents of Wilson.
An icon for over 70 years, Aquaman is the King of the Seven Seas. This reluctant ruler of Atlantis, caught between a surface world constantly ravaging the sea and Atlanteans looking to lash out in revolt, is committed to protecting the entire globe.
The film is based on characters appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment and will star Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as the sea-dwelling superhero, Amber Heard (Machete Kills) as Mera, Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man) as Atlantean politician Vulko, Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, and Temuera Morrison as Aquaman's father. It's being directed by James Wan (Furious Seven, The Conjuring), written by Will Beall (Gangster Squad), and produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder and Zack Snyder.
