Aquaman has a heavy metal background

Jason Momoa, the star of the upcoming superhero flick Aquaman, says his take on the character has roots in hard rock and metal. Momoa tells Metal Hammer, "Aquaman's pretty metal. I know no one thinks that, but Aquaman's metal. I kind of build my characters off of metal songs. Conan [from Conan the Barbarian] was really heavy Pantera. I'd say Aquaman was probably mostly built out of Tool and [the Metallica album] Kill 'Em All. [The Tool song] 'Ticks and Leeches,' if I want to get specific. There's a lot of Sabbath in there too." Aquaman opens in theaters on December 20th.
