We all celebrate in different ways. Some of us like cake, while others like to pop a bottle of champagne. Apparently, if you're Jason Momoa, you hit the weight room. Zack Snyder's upcoming Justice League film recently wrapped production, and Aquaman's real life counterpart shared a photo of his impressive physique to commemorate the occasion. Check it out.
Jason Momoa's Instagram post definitely makes one thing abundantly clear: he's maintaining the longstanding tradition in which superhero actors undergo complete body transformations for their roles. Momoa already had an impressive physique prior to getting the part of Aquaman (after all, the guy did play Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones) but he has seriously taken it to the next level to play the King of Atlantis. The photo in question showcases him standing under a weight rack in a gym, lamenting the fact that he must skip the Justice League wrap party in order to get a workout in and continue his work as Arthur Curry.
I have to say, I completely applaud the guy's commitment to the role. As anybody who has ever started a rigorous fitness regimen will tell you: it's not the exercise that's the difficult part; it's giving up things like beer, cake, and every other delicious food that one would expect to find at a wrap party. Honestly, he looks like a total badass, so it seems to have paid off.
Sadly for Jason Momoa, he will likely have to abstain from the "merriment" for quite some time, as he will soon become a very consistent presence in the DCEU. With Justice League hitting theaters next fall, he will almost immediately jump into his own solo movie when James Wan's Aquaman premieres on July 27, 2018. DC's resident water-based hero hasn't really had the opportunity to shine on the silver screen before now, but he will most certainly get plenty of chances to shine in the very near future. Considering all of the awesome material that we have already seen from Justice League, we're incredibly excited about that.
Check out the first official trailer for Justice League, which dropped earlier this summer during San Diego Comic-Con:
Although the DCEU continues to rest on shaky ground, we can rest assured knowing that Jason Momoa will bring unprecedented levels of dedication to his role as Aquaman. We will bring you any and all pertinent details related to the upcoming release of Justice League as more information becomes available. The legendary DC superhero ensemble will assemble for the first time ever on November 17, 2017.
