Actor Jason Momoa, who plays the superhero named ‘Aquaman’, is a big fan of Metallica. As you can see on his Instagram page, he wearing Metallica t-shirts all the time.
He spoke in an interview with Metal Hammer and said that ‘he inpsired by Metallica and Tool when he build Aquaman’. Here’s the statement:
“Aquaman’s pretty metal. I know no-one thinks that, but Aquaman’s metal. I kind of build my characters off of metal songs.
Conan (The Barbarian) was really heavy Pantera, I’d say Aquaman was probably mostly built out of Tool and (Metallica album) Kill ‘Em All. Ticks And Leeches, if I want to get specific. There’s a lot of Sabbath in there too.”
Metallica’s debut studio album, Kill Em’ All was released on July 25, 1983.
