Posted by November 18, 2017 Comment

We’re getting a better idea every day what kind of scenes were cut from the original cut of Justice League looked like. Jason Momoma is one of the cast members to talk to Gamespot about some of Aquaman’s deleted scenes. However, to get into them will require a minor spoiler warning.

Momoa talls about how there were longer scenes under water that include Willen DaFoe’s Vulko who was supposed to make an appearance in this movie.

“There’s a place where [Aquaman] goes down to, and it got cut out of the movie,” Momoa said. “He knows spots where he can go and he can see these statues, the remnants of [Atlantis]. There’s Vulko–obviously we’ll have way more scenes with Vulko, Willem Dafoe–in [the 2018 standalone] Aquaman. There just wasn’t enough time in this movie.”

Momoa went on to detail what kind of relationship Arthur Curry and Vulko have.

“Vulko’s his connection to Atlantis,” he said. “I think what Zack [Snyder] and I did, we were kind of trying to establish that he was taken down there as a boy, and he was an outcast, he was a half-breed, and he was built up as a young boy, because he was fed all these ideas by Vulko–that he was the rightful king. And he gets down there, and he’s a half breed, he’s impure, and I’m just made to feel like I’m this disease. So after that, I was like, ‘f*** you, f*** you, I’m on my own.'”

The scene also helped explain some more of Aquaman’s backstory and what he’s been doing all of these years.

“He hates Atlanteans, he cannot stand being on land. He just–he’s stuck in the tide. That’s what Zack wanted,” Momoa continued. “He was a blue collar worker. The guy worked in very lonely places, on oil rigs, he’d weld, and he could just be in peace, and he could exist on there and no one would know his secret. But there’s things where ships went down and he couldn’t save enough people, and he lost friends. The humanity side of him can’t deal with this power that he doesn’t know how to control yet.”

We’ll be learning more about Aquaman in his solo movie due out next year.

Summary: Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.

Justice League, directed by Zack Snyder, stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, and Henry Cavill. It’s out now.
