“There’s been some things here and there, but I’m stoked. There’s a lot of support from fans,” Momoa says of the backlash. “There’s a big beautiful world. There’s a lot — a lot — of stuff. I feel really privileged to know that there’s a lot of big, beautiful stuff that’s going to happen. I’m excited too, for people to see the final product. And now it’s our turn — it’s Justice League time! I’ve been waiting for four years that I’ve known about it that I’ve had to keep my mouth shut. I’m super pumped to shoot it!”

“It’s just something that hasn’t been explored before,” he reveals. “For me, it’s like Iron Man. When Iron Man came out, it was like, ‘Wow!’ We haven’t explored that character before and Robert Downey took it to a whole another level. He’s genius and it was amazing. I loved it.”

On Amber Heard playing Mera in the DC Extended Universe:

“I’m super stoked. She’s awesome!”
