Jason Momoa Confirmed as Aquaman in Batman v Superman

Over the weekend the boys at Hitfix reported that “Game of Thrones'” Jason Momoa has signed on the dotted line to play Aquaman in Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Warner and D.C.’s prelude to a full-blown D.C. Cinematic Movie Universe (aka If Marvel Can Do it, We Can Too, Dammit!)

Today, THR confirms the Hitfix report, saying that Momoa is indeed going to be swimming around in the upcoming superhero film due out in 2016.

The article doesn’t say if this is a cameo appearance that will balloon into a full-blown role in the “Justice League” movie as previous reports have indicated, though that looks likely. After all, when you already have Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, that’s probably enough superheroics for one movie. Apparently Momoa’s Aquaman will not be very pleased with Superman’s actions in “Man of Steel,” in particular that whole World Engine fiasco that played havoc with the world’s oceans.

Momoa joins Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred on the film, along with Holly Hunter, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane. And of course, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

    Awesome! Bring it! Looking forward to an intimidating Aquaman!!!

    I’m very interested to know who is going to play GL and Flash.(if is not the guy from the TV show)

    • Juggernaut

      I’d personally like to see John Stewart as the GL in the film if he does show up. Idris Elba would have been great but since he is already playing Heimdall in the Thor films he may not be available. Same goes for Bradley Cooper for Hal. My back ups for those two picks would be Armie Hammer for Hal and Omari Hardwick for Stewart. They may even bring in Kyle Raynor or Guy Gardner, although they are long shots. I’d say Logan Lehrman or Steven Strait for Raynor and Dash Mihok or Kevin Durand as Gardner. For Flash I hope we get Barry Allen. Karl Urban, Chris Pine Or Ryan McPartlin would be good fits. If they go for Wally West I’d say Hunter Parrish or Ryan Gosling.

        I like your Ryan Gosling and Omari Hardwick picks. I too think they can’t get Idis Alba. But man, that would have been dope

        Great choices, though I’d seay Pine is better for Wally and Gosling better for Barry.

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    I sincerely hope they do not call him Aquaman, Khal Drogo does not do Aqua.

      I would love a seen with the military referring to him as Aquaman, and him just look at them, and be like “Really?!?”
