Jason Momoa is set to play the King of the Seven Seas on the big screen come March 2016 in Batman Vs. Superman.

Momoa also stars in The Red Road TV series that airs on Sundance TV. While doing press for the series, Momoa talks about his DC slate and Aquaman.

Jason Momoa notes he didn't shoot any action scenes for Batman Vs. Superman and looks forward to the Justice League movie for that; Momoa also says he doesn't have a big role in Batman Vs. Superman as it's their movie (via EW).

No, we haven’t done too much on the action yet. You know, Justice League is still quite a ways away. But I’m looking forward to it. Henry’s a sweetheart, Ben is a badass, so I’m really looking forward to when we all shoot Justice League.

Well, 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.  

Momoa also talks about the big Aquaman poster reveal that took everybody and the internet by storm.

That was a shocker for sure. It was supposed to be a surprise in 2016, so it definitely helps [our show]. I’ve been holding that secret for a long time. Zack Snyder called me up and said, “I’m posting this picture now.” He’s just a genius and I love him to death. He sent it over and we’re in the middle of the editing suite for the thing I’m doing right now, and we all freaked out, man. It was so amazing to see it come out.  

Momoa says Aquaman will be amazing with lots of surprises on the way.

The whole mythology of Aquaman is pretty amazing. There’s so many things to tell, and there’s a whole backstory that’s just amazing. There’s a lot of surprises coming. I think, yeah, he’s been cast aside. But, um [laughs] times are going to change now, buddy.

Batman Vs. Superman has a March 25, 2016 release; Justice League is due out in 2017, with Aquaman in 2018.
