Aquaman star Jason Momoa has revealed that he’s “kind of bummed” by the reception that Justice League has had at the box office.

The actor told Entertainment Weekly, “I try to stay the f*** away from what people say […] Some of my friends said ‘Justice League isn’t doing well’ and it kind of bummed me out. But I didn’t want to look it up. I don’t want to look up the bad and the negativity. I don’t think that’s useful; it doesn’t help.”

Momoa, who has seen the film twice, praised Zack Snyder’s “badass” vision for Aquaman – however, he did acknowledge that there was a lot we didn’t see:

“The challenging part is [the Justice League story] is only about a weekend in Arthur Curry’s life,” Momoa continued, “[Fans] might be like, ‘Why is he that grumpy? Why’s he hiding up there?’ We had it all planned out. A lot of things got cut. But it’s not my movie. It’s a huge movie introducing three new characters, and for myself and The Flash and Cyborg, there was a lot that was there we just couldn’t get in.”

“It could have been two movies […] We had some stuff with Willem Dafoe. The whole Atlantean part, about me being this reluctant king. There was no need for it because you’re going to see it in Aquaman. It’s not an Aquaman movie, it’s a Justice League movie.”
