Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice may not have been everyone's favorite superhero movie. In fact, many fans downright loathed the Zack Snyder flick. Despite this, the movie is doing very well at the box office recently passing the $700-Million mark and on track for an additional $25-Million this weekend.
One of the surprises in the film came in the form of some rather interesting cameos from future Justice League members like Cyborg, Flash and Aquaman. Jason Momoa, who portrays the King Of The Seven Seas in the film, may have only appeared on screen for mere minutes, but he says he's still pumped for the future of the DC Expanded Universe.
Yes, the critics were rough, as were some fans, but Momoa realizes you can't win over everyone and that, despite some negativity, there is still plenty of support for what Warner and DC are putting together.
Momoa made his feelings known while speaking with Entertainment Tonight:
"There’s been some things here and there, but I’m stoked. There’s a lot of support from fans. There’s a big beautiful world. There’s a lot — a lot — of stuff. I feel really privileged to know that there’s a lot of big, beautiful stuff that’s going to happen. I’m excited too, for people to see the final product. And now it’s our turn — it’s Justice League time! I’ve been waiting for four years that I’ve known about it that I’ve had to keep my mouth shut. I’m super pumped to shoot it!"
"Some people liked it, some people didn’t, it is what it is. I don’t get it, but I don’t really listen to what anyone says…You can’t win ’em all. And I had a ball. I loved it.”
We're inclined to agree. We enjoyed both Man Of Steel and Batman v Superman immensely and are very eager to see what the studio has in mind for the future of their DC Expanded Universe on the big screen!
Fans will next see Momoa in the role of Aquaman, alongside Amber Heard as Mera, in Justice League - Part One. Production on the Zack Snyder film, bringing together the biggest heroes in DC Comics lore, begins in mere days!
