As HBO Max’s hit series Peacemaker comes to a close on its premiere season, the title character must reap what he has sown. Throughout the eight episode season, the DC anti-hero took shot after shot at his peers, calling them every insult in the book. Though he aimed his jeers at the likes of Batman and Superman, no one took the brunt quite as hard as Jason Momoa’s Aquaman. Throughout the entire series, Peacemaker went after the King of Atlantis, alluding to – and flat out accusing him – of having sex with fish.
Known for his say what’s on his mind attitude, fans flocked to Peacemaker for his vulgar comments, something we usually don’t hear from superheroes. As most heroes take themselves seriously, including Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, and hold themselves to a higher standard. Peacemaker takes himself seriously, but in an overly comical way. However, when it comes to language, the action man has a “say what you want and never apologize” outlook on life. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that Peacemaker referred to Batman as “a p***y” for being a non-lethal vigilante, something that Peacemaker highly values in his own fight against evil.
Being the King of the underwater world, and one of the most ripped heroes we’ve ever seen, the follow up question to all of this would be, what did Jason Momoa think about the allegations against Arthur Curry aka Aquaman? In a recent interview with Variety, Peacemaker director James Gunn spoke to Momoa’s reaction. Gunn says that prior to filming the show, he and Jason had a chat surrounding the fish fornication claims. During their talk, Gunn says that he flat out told Momoa that Peacemaker “says you f–k fish all the time.” What may have taken some actors aback, having their characters dissed and disrespected in that way, gave Jason Momoa more of a laughable pause. Gunn commented that the Game of Thrones alum chuckled it off and “was cool” with the soon-to-be running joke, adding that the actor was okay with it “from the beginning.” Having recently wrapped shooting on the follow up film to Aquaman, titled Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, Momoa has been known to have a great sense of humor, pranking fellow cast members and laughing when they get him back. Because of this, it’s truly no surprise that the Hawaiian-born actor took Peacemaker’s comments in stride.
Heading to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis for the second film in the Aquaman franchise along with Jason Mamoa will be Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Kidman, Temuera Morrison, and Dolph Lundgren. While much is yet to be revealed concerning the plot of Aquaman 2, we do know that it will see Momoa’s Arthur Curry striking up a friendship with an unsavory character to stop the destruction of Atlantis and the world as we know it. What stands to be seen is if Aquaman will fire a few rounds back at Peacemaker in the new film for his underwater relation allegations.
