“I messed up my eyes. I just got something in it that kinda cut it up, and then I’ve gotta get surgery, I have a hernia, I’ve got ribs out. I’m just getting beat up. But it’s going to be a great movie, you’re gonna love it.” DeGeneres tells him as per PEOPLE, “That’s a rough job you’ve got there. Every movie you’re on, you’re hurting yourself.” Laughing, Momoa tells her, “I just kinda give it. I love my job and I get a little too excited. The age thing. I’m an aging superhero now.”
