Walking on the set of a comic book movie is a rather special experience if you're a life-long fan. It's not only amazing to see characters spring off the page into full reality, but thrilling to step foot into familiar places that once only existed only as ink on paper. If you're not thinking clearly, it's an atmosphere that might inspire some goofy behavior -- and evidently it struck Jason Momoa during the making of Zack Snyder's Justice League. Specifically, it evidently got him to tug on Batman's cape when he found the opportunity. The Aquaman actor recently said,
I'm a bit of a big kid, and I kind of geeked out just walking around Ben [Affleck] and pulling on his cape. It's just surreal that I'm even here playing this guy and around these guys. When you see us all up there, you'll feel the same way!
Along with the rest of the Justice League cast, Jason Momoa took the stage for a special press conference in London last week to talk about the new movie -- and it was during a conversation about soaking in the world on set that the actor made his confession. Apparently he just couldn't get enough of the production design and costumes to the point where when he could catch Batman's cape with his hand, he pulled.
The opportunity to make a joke wasn't lost on Ben Affleck either, who quipped,
And I was like who the fuck keeps pulling on my cape?
You can watch the funny exchange hitting play on the video below:
If you've been reading the site, you know that this wasn't Jason Momoa's only bit of rambunctious behavior on the set of Justice League. Labeling himself a "natural born thief," the man who plays Arthur Curry admitted that he actually stole "Bat Bullets" from the Bat Cave set -- a minor crime also committed by Ezra Miller. Keeping all this in mind, one can only wonder what his experience was like when he got the chance to film James Wan's upcoming Aquaman movie. Specifically, there's an image in my head of him hitching a water tank to a truck and driving away.
Jason Momoa promises that fans will feel the same sense of awe that he did when they see the final results of Justice League -- and that opportunity for many is mere days away. After years of development, the feature is on target to hit theaters on November 17th.
