Jason Momoa has remained quite dodgy about his role as Aquaman in the DC movie universe, refusing to even confirm his role until DC and Warner Bros. made it official this past summer. Now, during an appearance at the Comic-Con Experience in São Paulo, Brazil, the actor revealed quite a bit of new information while not really offering anything new about his appearance as Arthur Curry in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The actor wants the director of that movie, Zack Snyder, to direct the Aquaman solo adventure coming in 2018. And he confirms that he is set for 4 movies altogether.

Jason Momoa claims that Zack Snyder's overall plan for Aquaman and the DC movie franchise is 'genius'. At the moment, the character is set to make his debut appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in May 2016, followed by Justice League Part 1 in November 2017, the Aquaman solo movie in July 2018 and finally Justice League Part 2 in June 2019. About what they are doing with this new version of the iconic DC superhero, Jason Momoa states:

"Aquaman will be a bad-ass, otherwise, they wouldn't cast me for the role."

There aren't any more exact quotes from Jason Momoa, but the actor also revealed that he had been cast for a long time before the official announcement arrived. He also said that if he didn't land the role of Aquaman, he would have gone onto lobby for the role of Lobo. Here are the tweets from the event. Thanks to the DCU Movie Page, we get a rundown of what the actor said at the Q&A.
