“He dodged her like Neo did with the bullets”: Jason Momoa Uncomfortably Dodges Questions About Amber Heard While Promoting Aquaman 2

Featured Video

Jason Momoa has a lot on his plate right now. With the premiere of Season 3 of his hit sci-fi series, See, and the upcoming big-budget movies, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom and Fast X, it doesn’t seem like the actor had much time to devote to the study of his co-star Amber Heard’s movements over the past several weeks since the defamation trial’s verdict. Whatever stance he had presented at the beginning now seems lost as he comically avoids any mention of his co-star.

Jason Momoa Disregards Questions About Amber Heard

During the red carpet premiere of his sci-fi series See‘s third season, Jason Momoa who plays Baba Voss in the show arrived in all his non-threatening masculine glory. With a little pink handbag in tow, the actor paused to answer a handful of questions for Entertainment Tonight. The interview which was frequently interrupted by his wandering curiosity and hooting at the arrival of his series co-stars finally snagged during a mention of Amber Heard who spent the better part of this year facing off Johnny Depp in court.

When asked, “All the hype, all the buzz, all the talk [around] Aquaman 2 — what can we expect? Have you talked to Amber? How are things?”, Momoa replies,

“It’s just laughs. I’ve never… uh, me and Patrick [Wilson], it’s a bit of a brother’s journey and so it’s a lot of funny stuff. And there’s a lot of stuff that’s just what’s going on in our environment, talking about climate change, and just hitting on certain things that I wanted to hit on, and yeah, it’s just a lot of laughs. And a lot of pain, so just wonderful action to the next level.”

Clearly, the actor not only willfully ignored answering any relevant question about Amber Heard but carefully maneuvered himself around the issue, almost with a political mastery, making the situation uncomfortable and inadvertently comical as a whole.

Jason Momoa and His Upcoming Year of Blockbusters

The American actor has a busy schedule for the foreseeable future. His solo DCEU sequel film Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will focus on the continuation of Arthur Curry’s journey as the King of Atlantis while being contested by his half-brother, Ocean Master. The film is a pet project of Momoa since he has repeatedly mentioned having contributed to the script himself and his zeal at bringing issues like climate change to the forefront through the platform provided by DC.

Moreover, the actor also plays the lead antagonist in the Fast & Furious franchise’s Part 1 of its epic conclusion, Fast X. Momoa describes the characterization of his villain as “evil and quirky and androgynous. He’s very sadistic and fun, it’s very bizarre.” All things considered, it looks like Jason Momoa still has a lot of promotions, events, and interviews left to curate his attempts at dodging any singular mention of Amber Heard.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom premieres on 25 December 2023.
