Jason Momoa Teases his Androgynous “Fast & Furious 10” Villain

In the first season of Game of Thrones, Jason Momoa wasn’t the bad guy, but his character, Khal Drogo, was certainly okay with being feared. Now, Momoa gets to go full villain in his upcoming role in Fast X, the tenth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise, and it sounds like he’s making the most of it.

Momoa offered some intriguing updates about his character during the third season premiere of his Apple TV+ series See. 

“Time of my life. I get to be the bad guy finally. I’ve been the good guy for a while,” Momoa told Variety’s Marc Malkin. “He’s very sadistic and androgynous and he’s a bit of a peacock. He’s got a lot of issues, this guy. He’s definitely got some daddy issues.”

Momoa has a lot going on, per usual, and he’s hardly done playing the hero. Before Fast X zooms into theaters, he’ll be reprising his role as Arthur Curry in director James Wan’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, which is due in theaters on March 17, 2023. For that film, Momoa has promised a funnier sequel, and it’s already been revealed that Aquaman will be re-teaming with Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne.

“It’s just hugs and kisses. I love that guy,” Momoa said about Affleck to Variety. “We get along too well. It’s very good to see him again.”

Once Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom clears the decks, Momoa will get to realize his villain dreams when Fast X hits theaters on May 19, 2023.
