Aquaman star Jason Mamoa has been bigging up his DC movie in an interview with Digital Trends, teasing that the James Wan-directed film will offer up a number of different new worlds the like of which have never been seen on screen before (what, not even in Warlords Of Atlantis? – ed).
“I read the Aquaman script and let me just put it this way – I’ve never seen a movie that’s anything like this. It’s going to be a world that you’ve never seen before, which is really cool. We went to space, we traveled all over different worlds, but we never went underwater. So it’s just a really cool spin on what’s below and it uses a lot of great movies that I already love — whether that be Raiders Of The Lost Ark to Star Wars to Lord Of The Rings to Romancing The Stone. It has a lot of really cool adventure, it’s funny and heroic, and there’s a lot of different characters and a lot of different worlds that we get to go to.
He adds, “I’ve spent a lot of time in this industry, so I’m excited to put all my energy into it and completely f*** some s*** up.”
Aquaman, which also stars Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Kidman, Temuera Morrison and Willem Dafoe, is scheduled for a UK release on 5 October 2018.
