Jason Momoa has revealed Justice League could have been released as two movies, as so much more footage was shot.
Still, Momoa admitted he was "kind of bummed" after hearing Justice League had gotten mixed reviews - but he's not about to wade through the negativity. Momoa discussed this during an earlier interview.
The actor credited Justice League director Zack Snyder for breathing new life into the Aquaman character.
Of course, we don't know how he plans to have underwater conversations, but air bubbles are definitely out.
Jason - who played the role of Aquaman in the movie - said to Entertainment Weekly that he was "upset" when he heard the reception of the film wasn't up to his standards. But it's not my movie.
DC writers gave the Marine Marvel a badass makeover in the 1990s and he's been kicking ass across the seven seas ever since, establishing himself as the one true king of Atlantis and an integral member of the Justice League. It could have been two movies. Momoa confirmed that a number of scenes with him had been cut from Justice League, including scenes with Willem Dafoe, who was removed from the film entirely.
This was perhaps one of the most crucial mistakes "Justice League" had, which left a lot of people not being able to relate with or understand the new characters since they were not given much exposition. The film only raked in an estimated $96 million in the USA and Canada box office during its opening weekend.
According to reports, the film created by the Warner Brothers Studios cost about $300 million to develop, and it made just $94 million during its first weekend in North America. Hopefully, the film's overseas market will fare even better since it is expected to make $185.5 million.
Aquaman is slated for a December 21, 2018, release. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
