Warner Bros. has many projects lined up and in additions to its release schedule, includes announcing that Jason Momoa, who stars in Minecraft, will hit theaters on April 4, 2025. Napoleon Dynamite filmmaker Jared Hess is directing the theatrical adaptation of the popular video game.
The studio also made adjustments to its 2023 year-end plan. DC Studios’ highly anticipated Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, also starring Momoa, now open on December 20th instead of Christmas Day.
While giving an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Momoa shared that reprising the role hasn’t come without its own risks.
When host Ellen DeGeneres asked him about rumors that he’d hurt himself while shooting, Momoa confirmed he sustained quite a few injuries, telling her, “I’m getting old.” He explained, “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 continued, before reassuring viewers, “It’s gonna be a great movie, you’re gonna love it.”

Meanwhile, when DeGeneres asked if he is able to see with his scratched cornea, Momoa replied, “Yeah, yeah, look at me. I can see great,” telling the host, “I’m good to go!” Mentioning Momoa’s other several past injuries including a broken femur and a face injury that left a scar, DeGeneres, 63, said, “That’s a rough job you got there. Every movie you’re on, you’re hurting yourself.” However, Momoa didn’t have much of an excuse, yet he replied, “I just kind of give it, yeah. I love my job and I get a little too excited, then the age thing, you know, I’m an aging superhero right now.”
Aquaman star Jason Momoa has been filming the second installment of the Aquaman franchise since this summer when he first arrived in London to kick off the production of the sequel. Meanwhile, he revealed that he was going blonde for the film in July. “This is the last day of the brown. I’m gonna be a blonde,” he shared in a video posted to Instagram. “They supposedly have more fun. I don’t know about that, we’ll test it out.”
