Yesterday we reported that Warner Bros. is looking to add more superheroes in cameo form to Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and that they were still casting. Warner is looking to pull a Marvel by introducing characters in short snippets before launching them into either their own spin-off movies, or in bigger roles in the “Justice League” film.
According to Hitfix, one of those cameoing superhero roles might have already been filled. The site claims that Jason Momoa (“Game of Thrones”) has signed on the dotted line to play Aquaman in the Snyder movie.
Hitfix says Aquaman will have (as expected) a small role in “Batman v Superman,” but his appearance will have something to do with the World Engine that almost destroyed Metropolis and the world in “Man of Steel.”
Someone else who’s not particularly happy about what happened in [“Man of Steel”] is Aquaman. I’m not sure if that’s the actual name they’ll use or not, but what we’re hearing is that he is not pleased about the World Engine and what it did to the Indian Ocean.
It appears Superman’s giant part in the near-total destruction of Metropolis will have consequences in “Batman v Superman” after all, not only with the appearance of Supes’ archenemy Lex Luthor, but likely with Bruce Wayne aka Batman as well.
And now you can add Aquaman to the list of people with beef against the man of steel.
Man, you help demolish one city and unwittingly cause the near total annihilation of humankind, and everyone’s all up in your grill. What up with that?
