Justice League has quickly become one of the most divisive movies of the year, critics having lampooned the blockbuster while certain fans have adamantly defended the team-up.

When the same happened to Batman v Superman, the movie’s actors gave some varying responses when questioned about the negative reviews, spawning the famous Sadfleck meme. Jason Momoa won’t be giving any such reaction.

“I try to stay the f**k away from what people say,” the Aquaman actor told EW. “Some of my friends said, ‘Justice League isn’t doing well’ and it kind of bummed me out. But I didn’t want to look it up. I don’t want to look up the bad and the negativity. I don’t think that’s useful; it doesn’t help.”

Momoa — who plays one of the better-received characters — added how he’s seen Justice League twice and adores the movie.

“I loved it the second time even more,” the actor added. “I’m actually going to watch it again with my kids and my godchild. I’m going to see it with the perfect crowd of people — a regular crowd instead of at a premiere. So I’m excited.”

Despite being hugely anticipated, Justice League has proven relatively disappointing at the box office. With a $300 million budget, the blockbuster has so far grossed less than $95 million in the US for a global opening of $280 million.
