After months of having to dodge questions and give vague answers, Jason Momoa has finally opened up about being cast as Aquaman. Momoa was on a panel over the weekend at the Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta and addressed his secrecy about the role. “Listen, I was asked to play it. You know, you audition and stuff like that, but the fact is you’ve just got to keep it quiet. You know what I mean, I was just trying to respect Warner Bros. and everyone’s wishes. I’m really, really happy that I don’t have to be quiet anymore, because that’s really hard for me,” he told the crowd. He went on to say that he’s very excited to be a part of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and even called director Zack Snyder a genius. Here are some tweets highlighting Momoa’s comments, courtesy of Comic Book Movie:

Jason Momoa’s Aquaman will make his debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, followed by Justice League Part One in November, 2017. Momoa will then star in his very own Aquaman movie in July, 2018.
