'Aquaman' star Jason Momoa wants to visit India
Jason Momoa is famous for playing Khal Drogo in HBO's acclaimed show GoT and donning the superhero costume of Aquaman, as part of the DC Extended Universe. Notably, his Aquaman movie released yesterday, December 14, across India, after having had a terrific start in China, raking in over $100 million. To understand if his movie has clicked, Momoa now wants to visit India.
Momoa seems to be looking forward to Aquaman releasing in India and might visit the country to gauge the reaction to the movie, which released here a week before US release. The film's performance in India, US and elsewhere will be instrumental in determining the franchise's future, given India's huge market and also because recent DCEU's films performed poorly at the box office.
As we noted, the future of the Aquaman franchise depends on how the film performs in the US and global markets. Thus Momoa is rightly interested in the buzz generated by the Warner Bros film in India and wishes to visit India, especially Delhi.
If Momoa seems more involved in this film, it is only because he believes it is his hardest role till now. Speaking of the physically exacting nature of playing Aquaman, Momoa commented that he had two stunt doubles, who both got hurt along with him, while shooting for the film. He also mentioned the difficulty of action sequences in the 40-pound Aquaman's armored suit.
For those unaware, Aquaman follows the story of Arthur Curry, played by Momoa. A half human and half Atlantean, he faces his destiny of being the hero of Atlantis. The film co-stars notable actors like Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe and Patrick Wilson, who plays the role of the antagonist. The film, directed by James Wan, has received praise after early screenings, as per reports.
