Per The Hollywood Reporter, Jason Momoa appeared on a recent episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and opened up about the injuries he sustained while filming “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.” During the interview, the actor joked that he was “getting old” for physically demanding performances before elaborating on the gruesome details.
“I messed up my eyes. I just got something in it that kinda cut it up, and then I’ve gotta get surgery, I have a hernia, I’ve got ribs out. I’m just getting beat up,” Momoa told DeGeneres. However, the physical setbacks didn’t crush his spirits too much, and he assured all of his concerned fans that he didn’t suffer any long-term damage. According to Momoa, he’s “good to go,” and audiences can expect a “great movie.”
Furthermore, the injuries came about because Momoa wanted to give the role everything he had — even though he isn’t getting any younger. “I love my job, and I get a little too excited, then the age thing, you know, I’m an aging superhero right now,” he said.
“Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” will swim into theaters on December 16, 2022.
