“As long as we can. If people don’t like it and it looks like its due date has passed, we won’t make another one,” Jason Momoa told The Hollywood Reporter about how long he’ll play Aquaman , reports aceshowbiz.com.
“But if they love it, we’ll make more, you know. I don’t want to force anything down someone’s throat just to see it. But I like it.”

Jason Momoa said: “We’ve written a great story. I was one of the writers on this and the minute we finished (‘Aquaman’) I went for another with a 50-page outline and they used it and they liked it. I have my heart in it. ,
“I feel very attached to the character and have played it, are there four movies now?”
Jason Momoa is not worried about the recent delay in the film’s release as he is confident that fans will be happy with what they see.
He added: “We killed it. We’ve created something amazing and it will come out when it comes out.”
He also thanked Tom Cruise and “Top Gun: Maverick” for making theaters attractive again.
“The good thing about what has happened with COVID is that everyone is trying to rush to meet these deadlines, but we know it must come to the fore when it comes out. Get ready to come (one at a time) when everyone else is back in theaters. So, thanks Tom Cruise.”
