According to ComicBook.com, Momoa appeared at the Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta this weekend. While there, he said that while he doesn't know much about the recently announced standalone film, he expects that shooting won't take place until 2016 or 2017.
“I don’t know the director," he said. "I know about as much as you guys know. I know the Justice League will come first. That’s really what we’re going to focus on. I’m not sure if it will be [set] prior to Justice League or post. I don’t know too much about it. It will probably be where he came from. It will probably be his whole origin story I would think…I mean I don’t even want to get quoted on this s***. So I know we’re going to do Justice League first.”
As for whether or not Aquaman will show up in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Momoa said, “I really wish I could say something, but I don’t even know. I found out some of the characters that are in Justice League that are casted that I didn’t know. So you found out when I found out. And that stuff is pretty tight-lipped so I don’t have anything to give.”
In the meantime, he said he's reading Aquaman comics to do character research, since he was more of a Spawn and Lobo fan as a child.
"The greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing a [water] character," he said. "And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives."
