Jason Momoa Cast As Aquaman In 'Batman Vs Superman' Movie
Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo on HBO hit Game of Thrones, is reportedly joining the Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice cast as Aquaman.
Jason Momoa Playing Aquaman?
Momoa had been rumored to be up for the part for months, but the actor has consistently denied it. However, it’s now all but confirmed that he’s set to assume the superhero role and that director Zack Snyder has finished conceptualizing Mamoa’s Aquaman, according to HitFix.
It’s not believed that Aquaman will play a large part in Dawn of Justice, as the bulk of the action will follow Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, as well as villain Lex Luther, who will be played by Jesse Eisenberg.
Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane are all reprising their Man of Steel roles.
Momoa, if the report is true that he’s playing Aquaman in Batman vs Superman, will likely have a larger role in Snyder’s planned Justice League movie.
Batman vs. Superman is slated for release May 6, 2016.
