After playing the protagonist for so long, Jason Momoa is ready to be the bad guy.

The actor can’t wait to unveil his villainous role in Universal’s “Fast X,” the tenth main line entry in the “Fast & Furious” saga. Momoa offered fans a tease of what to expect from his character during the red carpet premiere of the third season of the actor’s Apple TV+ series “Watch” on Tuesday evening.

“Time of my life. I end up being the bad guy. I’ve been the good guy for a while,” Momoa told Variety’s Mark Malkin. “She’s so sad and bisexual and she’s a little peacock… she’s got a lot of issues, this man. She’s definitely got some daddy issues.”

But before Momoa appears alongside Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto and his Fast family, the actor will reprise his role as Arthur Curry in the DC Comics sequel “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” due next spring.

Hinting that the follow-up will have “more humor” than its 2018 predecessor, Momoa also touched on his experience reuniting with Ben Affleck, who plays Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, in “the Lost Kingdom”. Affleck and Momoa worked together in the superhero team-up film “Justice League” and its 2021 director’s cut “Zack Snyder’s Justice League.”

“It’s just hugs and kisses. I love that guy,” Momoa told Variety of Affleck. “We get on very well. It’s great to see him again.”

Momoa then joined his “C” costar to ring in the third and final season of the series. The science-fiction drama takes place in the world hundreds of years after mankind went blind. In the latest episode, after Momoa’s furious Baba Voss bids farewell to his family to be left alone in the woods, only for a new threat to emerge, he is forced to return to protect his tribe.

Momoa estimates that his character has killed “over 100” people throughout the story. “This is definitely the farthest murder I’ve ever had in my life,” he said.

The third and final season of “Sea” will debut its first episode on Apple TV+ on August 26, followed by the weekly release of the remaining seven episodes.

“Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” is set to hit theaters on March 17, 2023, while “Fast X” will arrive shortly thereafter on May 19, 2023.
