Metallica, Tool & Black Sabbath Helped Inspire Jason Momoa's "Aquaman"

December 11, 2018

Before Jason Momoa came along, everyone liked to rag on Aquaman because being able to communicate with fish didn't seem to be that impressive or helpful as a superpower. But now that the king of the seas took a dip in the pool of badasses, let's just say that audiences are going to be wet and thirsty in more ways than one when Aquaman hits US theaters on December 21st.

Even though Momoa has portrayed other badass characters in the past like Conan the Barbarian and Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones, he revealed in an interview with Metal Hammer that part of his portrayal of Aquaman was inspired by some of his favorite bands like Metallica, Tool and Black Sabbath.

In the meantime, check out the final trailer for Aquaman in the video below!
