Batman vs. Superman vs. Conan vs. Khal Drogo

13 Comments

Batman Superman Comic BookAlthough these days Jason Momoa is known more for his role as Conan in the ill-fated “Conan the Barbarian” reboot and on HBO’s “Game of Thrones” as marauding king of the plains Khal Drogo, I still like to think of him more as roguish good guy Ronon Dex on “Stargate: Atlantis”.

Either that, or as Jason Ioane on “Baywatch”.

Anyways. It looks like Momoa is about to put those muscles to good use, with Variety reporting that the actor is currently “in talks for a part in Warner Bros. untitled Batman-Superman movie”.

Now the first thing you have to consider is this: it’s probably not going to be some minor role, since after “Conan” and “Game of Thrones”, Momoa has a bit of a name. And since he’s played a villain before (“Bullet to the Head”, and I guess to an extent his Khal Drogo can be considered a villain), it’s very likely he’s destined to be butting heads with Supes and his new pal Bats in a major bad guy role.

If Momoa does agree to a deal, he’ll be joining Ben Affleck as Superman, Henry Cavill as Superman, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. The film is due in 2015.

So, taking a look at Jason Momoa from three different movies and three different roles, what villain role do you think he’ll be playing in the upcoming Zack Snyder film? Place your bets, kids, place your bets!

    Obvious answer seems to be Doomsday, but he’d make for a pretty cool take on Braniac

    Lobo

  • Xgod Myme

    Momoa = LOBO!

  • Juggernaut

    he would make a great Lobo. However, I’m thinking he’ll be playing either Metallo, who was reported to be one of the villains, or Martian Manhunter.

      Metallo yes, MM HELL NO!!!! Peter Mensah all the way! But he’d be a badass Lobo!!!

      • Juggernaut

        Mensah has and always will be MY only choice for that role. However, when trying to pin who the execs may be casting Mamoa as Jon Jonnz is on the shortlist of possibilities.

          He ain’t shaving his head!!

      i dont see him being much of a speaking role as Martian Manhunter would need to be. Jonzz is proper when he speaks and “gentle” in all versions that i’ve seen and read. I dont see Jason Momoa able to do that.

        Indeed. Lobo would be a better choice. But if he’s a Superman foe I’d definitely pic Metallo.

    Just hit me. Darkseid! I don’t see him with the gravitas for it, but he has the build and size.

    • Juggernaut

      If they go that direction for this film then I guess he could work. He strikes me more of a henchman than a leader though. Maybe Kalibak, Steppenwolf, Kanto, Mantis or Dr. Bedlam!

        True.

    nah, this ain’t gonna work…FORGET ABOUT IT!
