It's an exciting time to be a DC fan. Because besides the Arrow-verse shows that are back on The CW, Zack Snyder's Justice League will arrive in just a few weeks. The DC Extended Universe will really kick into overdrive with the superpowered team up film, pairing the DC trinity with newcomers like Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg. The film will reportedly be very focused on the strange dynamics of the motley crew, and it turns out that two League members aren't going to get along when the Justice League arrives in theaters. Actor Jason Momoa plays Arthur Curry/Aquaman, and recently revealed why he and Ray Fisher's Cyborg don't like each other.
Me and Cyborg do not get along at all. I don't trust him as far as I can throw him. Over time, that will change. It's the same thing with Bruce [Wayne]. I'm like, 'Nah, I'm not buying into it.'
It looks like Aquaman is going to be wary of the other heroes in Justice League. It should be interesting to see how the half Atlantean grapples with with his lack of trust, especially when Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons come knocking.
It should come to no surprise that Aquaman and Cyborg aren't exactly bosom buddies. Aquaman is grappling with not belonging to the human world, and having to team up with a bunch of weirdos with superpowers. Conversely, Cyborg is basically a teenager and is also struggling with a fair amount of self-loathing. Perhaps the two will be able to bond over their shared identity issues, which will help them team up and kick ass before the final battle concludes.
The Game of Thrones alum has also teased a strained relationship with Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne. This is no doubt a reference to the duo's first meeting, when Bruce attempts to convince Arthur to join his group and save the world. Smart money says Aquaman will turn him down at first, although it looks like they eventually hit it off later into Justice League's runtime. There were quite a few hilarious moments between Batman and Aquaman in the trailers, and they eventually got along well enough for Aquaman to take a little ride on the top of The Batmobile.
Jason Momoa's comments to Total Film (via GamesRadar) seems to tease the polar opposite of Ezra Miller's The Flash. While Barry Allen immediately agrees to join The League and is a major fan of heroes like Batman, Aquaman will be harder to convince. This will hopefully create another interesting dynamic in the finished film, especially with Joss Whedon's reshoots and focus on a lighter tone.
