Jason Momoa In Talks To Join 'Man Of Steel' Sequel
Jason Momoa is reportedly in talks to join the cast of the upcoming "Batman vs. Superman," the sequel to Man of Steel.
Jason Momoa In Negotiations To Join Man Of Steel
According to a report, sources say that Momoa is currently in negotiations to join the highly anticipated film opposite star Henry Cavill, but his role is unknown. Momoa is a frequent player in the fantasy/action genre. He stared in the first season of Game of Thrones as Khal Drogo and started in the failed 2011 remake of Conan the Barbarian. Known for his large stature and muscular form, Momoa would fit right into the super-hero world. But, with both Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) joining the cast of characters for director Zack Snyder’s next film, some speculate as to whether or not Momoa will play the villain or another potential member of the Justice League.
Could Play Martian Manhunter Or Doomsday
According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources close to the film say that Momoa could potentially be up for the role of the Martian Manhunter, a super alien from the Justice League, or he could take a turn as the villain Doomsday rumored to be Superman’s main foe in the sequel.
Warner Bros., the studio behind Man of Steel refused to comment on the report. The "Batman vs. Superman" film is aiming for a July 15, 2015 release.
