Jason Momoa is getting in shape for Justice League
While it stands to reason that anyone playing a hero called Aquaman would have to look good wet, I’d like to file a complaint with whoever got Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman, quite this wet for the cover of Entertainment Weekly.
Look, I know this “photographer” was just doing their “job” but what gave them the right to shoot an image of this absolutely enormous, bearded, heavily tattooed man with the body of a god and the hair of a WWE wrestler and put it on the cover of a magazine?
Look at how intensely he’s staring into the camera/the viewer’s immortal soul. Is it frightening? Yes. Am I ready to charter a boat in search of my buff aquatic king? Also yes!
Pause for a minute and think about what Jason Momoa must smell like in this picture. Think about it, manifest it, and breathe deeply through your nose. Congratulations.
But that’s not all! the Barnes and Noble version of Entertainment Weekly also included looks at Momoa’s Aquaman costars Nicole Kidman and Amber Heard, and smack between those two high-key attractive women is Momoa again, blonder this time, looking like he’s going to either kill someone or…yeah that’s just a “kill someone” look.
In the article, Aquaman executive producer Peter Safran had this to say about Momoa’s performance as a thicc amphibious man-hunk:
“Rarely has a superhero character been married to the real-life actor as much as Aquaman and Jason Momoa. “He’s authentically from two worlds, he’s this real physical specimen, he’s got this humor which he’s never been allowed to play before — in every regard he is Aquaman.”
A real physical specimen indeed.
