Batman meets Aquaman in a new clip from the Justice League movie.
The clip shows Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) traveling to a remote fishing village in search of Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa), the protector of the oceans who keeps the villagers fed during the winter months. He’s told that the icebergs have kept ships out for months, but when he mentions Atlantis, Curry can’t keep his cool any longer.
Check it out in the video above.
If this is how well Batman's attempted recruitment of Aquaman goes, it's no wonder he's so relieved when the Flash (Ezra Miller) seems ready and willing to sign up almost immediately.
At a Justice League press event earlier today, Jason Momoa explained that the Aquaman in the Justice League movie isn't the Aquaman of the Aquaman movie.
"It all kind of came from Zack [Snyder]'s mind," Momoa said. "The one thing that was really concerning when I did my homework, I knew this was basically a weekend in his life. I just wanted to make sure the fans knew, we needed to know where he came from and why he's this grumpy.
“You're gonna understand where he came from. What happened to his mother, what happened to his father. Sometimes he saved people and sometimes he lost people. His human side didn't understand how to handle that. When we do get to the solo film, you're gonna see the man who learned how to accept responsibility and becomes King. The Aquaman in this film isn't quite Aquaman yet.”
