'Batman v Superman' Reviews: Jason Momoa Responds To Critical Backlash, 'I Don't Get It' [VIDEO]

Jason Momoa tries not to let the negative reviews for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice get to him.

Momoa, who had a cameo appearance in Batman v Superman as Aquaman, spoke with Entertainment Tonight recently about the critical reviews for the film skewing mostly negative.

"There's been some things here and there, but I'm stoked. There's a lot of support from fans. There's a big beautiful world. There's a lot—a lot—of stuff. I feel really privileged to know that there's a lot of big, beautiful stuff that's going to happen," he said. "I'm excited too, for people to see the final product. And now it's our turn—it's Justice League time! I've been waiting for four years that I've known about it that I've had to keep my mouth shut. I'm super pumped to shoot it!"

He continued, "Some people liked it, some people didn't, it is what it is. I don't get it, but I don't really listen to what anyone says...You can't win 'em all. And I had a ball. I loved it."

Momoa is now set to film Justice League Part One and eventually get his own solo movie as Aquaman. The actor spoke about playing a character that hasn't been portrayed in a live action film before.

"It's just something that hasn't been explored before," he noted. "For me, it's like Iron Man. When Iron Man came out, it was like, 'Wow!' We haven't explored that character before and Robert Downey took it to a whole nother level. He's genius and it was amazing. I loved it."

Batman v Superman opened to a huge $166 million in its opening weekend, but it dropped close to 70 percent in the following weekend, grossing $51 million. It remains to be seen if the film will have legs as the film remains in theaters and how the negative response will impact future movie ticket sales for the DC Extended Universe.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still out in theaters. Aquaman is scheduled for release in 2018.
