Jason Momoa has recruited “water men” of his family to help him perfect superhero Aquaman.
The former Game of Thrones star recently confirmed he will be playing the wet stud in the Man of Steel sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and he’s taking the role very seriously so he doesn’t disappoint his Polynesian ancestors.
He tells LatinoReview.com, “The greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, (are) all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing the character. And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives.
“My family are some of the greatest water men on earth. I’m not, but I’m going to go train with them… Water is the most important thing in this world and we all know it.
“(Director) Zack Snyder’s a genius, so I’m really excited to be hanging out with him.”
