‘I’m just getting beat up,’ actor said
The actor appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ chat show, explaining that he was hurt. When the host asked what had happened, he quipped: “I’m getting old.”
Momoa, who is 42, continued: “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.”
To alleviate worries that his injuries were serious, Momoa said the DC sequel is “gonna be a great movie”.
“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 ageing superhero right now.”
The injuries corroborate his previous statement that Aquaman 2 will feature “more action” than its predecessor, which was released in 2018.
Directed by James Wan, the film will be released in 2022.
