‘I can really relate, being born in Hawaii and raised in Iowa … (and him) coming from this Atlantis-Hawaii and not really feeling accepted in either place,’
The actor said the film would resonate with children from broken homes, and of different races with him proud of being a ‘brown skin superhero.’
‘I think there’s a lot of kids out there that feel that from broken homes so it’s cool to see him deal with that.’
