And that he will be announced to play again the role, this time as part of the main cast, in The Justice League Part One and will eventually have his own spinoff!Him being a Hawaiian-of the Kanaka Maoli race-Momoa certainly has helped in bringing more diversity in the comic book movie universe that is totally ruling over our cinemas nowadays. But he said it was not easy, as according to his interview by the Daily Beast.
I’ve had to bust ass to be in this industry. A lot of things are very black and white.”
And he is really glad that the studios picked him.
“Aquaman is especially cool because being a Kanaka Maoli—being Hawaiian—our Gods are Kanaloa and Maui, and the Earth is 71 percent water, so I get to represent that. And I’m someone who gets to represent all the islanders, NOT some blond-haired superhero. It’s cool that there’s a BROWN-skinned superhero.”
