JASON MOMOA DISCUSSES [REDACTED’S] EXCLUSION FROM JUSTICE LEAGUE 2017 LIVE ACTION MOVIE | [NEWS]

[Spoiler Alert, you have been warned]

Justice League 2017 film had a troubled production–that’s no secret. It’s inevitable that some material gets left on the cutting room floor in any production, but for a movie that went through re-shoots, a director change, and who knows what else, that’s bound to be extra true.

Back to Atlantis

In Justice League, Aquaman  spends most of his time on land. But in earlier versions of the movie, he had more to do under the sea. That’s where Willem Dafoe’s character, Nuidis Vulko, would have come in–if he hadn’t been cut from Justice League entirely.

“There’s a place where [Aquaman] goes down to, and it got cut out of the movie,” Momoa said. “He knows spots where he can go and he can see these statues, the remnants of [Atlantis]. There’s Vulko–obviously we’ll have way more scenes with Vulko, Willem Dafoe–in [the 2018 standalone] Aquaman. There just wasn’t enough time in this movie.”

Momoa went on to describe Dafoe’s character in greater detail.

“Vulko’s his connection to Atlantis,” he said. “I think what Zack [Snyder] and I did, we were kind of trying to establish that he was taken down there as a boy, and he was an outcast, he was a half-breed, and he was built up as a young boy, because he was fed all these ideas by Vulko–that he was the rightful king. And he gets down there, and he’s a half-breed, he’s impure, and I’m just made to feel like I’m this disease. So after that, I was like, ‘f*** you, f*** you, I’m on my own.'”

Cyborg and Aquaman

Also for his part, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg gets a good amount of screen time dedicated to exploring his relationship with his father and his newfound powers. One thing we don’t see in Justice League: Victor Stone’s mother.

That wasn’t always the case, though, Fisher told GameSpot.

“There were some things that you’ll probably end up seeing later on, that didn’t make it into this version of the film,” Fisher said. “There’s a scene with Victor Stone, when he still was Victor Stone, and his mother, that was really special to shoot.”

He said Justice League feels like an origin story for Cyborg, despite being an ensemble film.“It does feel like an origin, particularly to people who don’t know as much about Cyborg,” he said. “We pretty much know the history of the Flash…And then you’ve got Aquaman, who’s half man, half Atlantean. I think those stories have been told for so long, it’s kind of like just knowing Batman or Superman’s origin, or Wonder Woman’s origin.”

During interviews with GameSpot, several Justice League stars dished on some of the movie’s biggest deleted scenes.
