Jason Momoa Is 'Totally' Playing Aquaman in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE After All

Jason Momoa Is 'Totally' Playing Aquaman in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE After All

Well, it seems Jason Momoa has been trying to delude us regarding his unconfirmed role as Aquaman in Batman v Superman, with new potential details revealing how his character will be introduced.

It was first reported back in December last year that Jason Momoa would be joining Zack Snyder's Man of Steel follow-up, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in an unspecified role. Since then, the Game of Thrones actor has been rumored to play Aquaman among other Justice League members. Despite laughing off those very rumors just last month, HitFix has it on good authority that Momoa will "totally" play the King of Atlantis in the 2016 film. In addition to Snyder already "finalizing his designs for the character so shooting can take place soon," the usually credible Drew McWeeny further reveals just how Aquaman will come into the picture. As many expected, it seems the mass destruction in the final act of Man of Steel will have an impact on Dawn of Justice, with Lex Luther using it to make Superman "look like a monster" and it also upsetting Aquaman. "What we're hearing is that he is not pleased about the World Engine and what it did to the Indian Ocean," says McWeeny. Though Jason Momoa won't play a major part in Batman v Superman, it seems he will definitely establish the character briefly in 2016 and return when Zack Snyder returns to direct Justice League, which is said to film back-to-back with Dawn of Justice. What do you think?

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Holly Hunter. The film, written by Chris Terrio from David S. Goyer's screenplay, and directed by Zack Snyder, hits May 6, 2016!

Haha! Horowitz is gon' kick your ass!

JamesMan - 6/13/2014, 10:59 PM
If true, he can totally be badass Aquaman from the New 52. Probably shift his design a bit to make him totally barbarianesque.

BrowniesExplode - 6/13/2014, 11:01 PM
So basically this is Batman v. Superman:Justice League members makes camoes.
ALegendaryPanda - 6/13/2014, 11:01 PM
[frick] YEAH!!
ALegendaryPanda - 6/13/2014, 11:02 PM
I hope it's actually true this time!
JosephKing - 6/13/2014, 11:02 PM
Awesome choice! I hope it's true. I wanna see a badass "tribal" Aquaman.
Maven - 6/13/2014, 11:04 PM
Wait -

'Someone else who's not particularly happy about what happened in that film 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. He will not have a major role in the film, but he will make an appearance, and it definitely sets him up to return once Snyder gets to "Justice League."'

Those old spoilers were correct?
GenerationX - 6/13/2014, 11:07 PM
doesn't looks like Aquabitch to me
batmanvsuperman - 6/13/2014, 11:10 PM

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of-- Let's Cut The Shit, It's A F*cking Justice League Movie"
Sipprelle - 6/13/2014, 11:11 PM
I honestly am not concerned because all of these other characters besides Bats, Supes and WW are all 1-2 scene cameos at most. I think Mommoa will do a great job as Aquaman (I think this all but confirms that he has a tight lipped contract) and I can't wait to see him in future installments.
RobtimusPrime - 6/13/2014, 11:19 PM
I like this casting if true.
Bring that "Khal Drogo" swag to DC's king of Atlantis.
JosephKing - 6/13/2014, 11:19 PM
I have nothing against cameos. It will probably be a 2:30 hours movie, Aquaman appearing 2 minutes is nothing. I'll go even further: Cyborg will make a cameo from what we know. I think they should use him MORE, give him his own subplot. Make him a guy who got injured during Man of Steel, his father (Silas Stone, a STAR Labs scientist. Duh!) makes a deal with the government to mix human and kryptonian technology to save his son's life. The military/government will give him the means, but they want him to use the experiment as a test for new kinds of weapons, armours, exoskeletons, etc. so Victor is like a test subject to the government (imagine him using that sort of liquid metal kryptonian technology to make parts of his body, so he can shape things like those tentacles of the World Engine or whatever, kinda like T-1000. Wicked!). And they can write that as a way to show the consequences of Man of Steel, both as how it impacted human lives (Vic Stone is a victim of the invasion) and how the contact with alien technology shapes our own scientific knowledge. Of course, it's just a raw idea, but it could get some nice work to have a clearer meaning in the movie. It could only add to the whole conflict about what happened to Metropolis and how Superman is a game changer and all.

I hope not. I like him as Khal Drogo, not Aquaman.
AlexanderLykins - 6/13/2014, 11:21 PM
I don't see the issue. Hopefully Avengers: Age of Ultron has Ms. Marvel, Black Panther and Ant-Man cameos.
AlexanderLykins - 6/13/2014, 11:23 PM
I also didn't see the issue with Iron Man 2.
themidnightking - 6/13/2014, 11:26 PM
You know it's true haha
RobtimusPrime - 6/13/2014, 11:26 PM
@ MisterMoustache

Damn your, Cyborg ideas are really cool. Probably better than what, Snyder will give us! I'd be totally down with that.
AlexanderLykins - 6/13/2014, 11:26 PM
See the issue? You people bashed Iron Man 2 for the same reason you praise Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
MrLoki - 6/13/2014, 11:27 PM
He would be great! I loved him so much as Ronon Dex on Stargate Atlantis, I'll really love to see him on the big screen!
staypuffed - 6/13/2014, 11:30 PM
I don't think many people are praising how many characters they seem to be putting this movie. I don't have a problem with it, personally.
staypuffed - 6/13/2014, 11:31 PM
and I don't bash Iron Man 2 for the same reason.
supes123 - 6/13/2014, 11:43 PM
i believe it when its 100% official

Yes !! he is perfect for the role !!!

All these News n rumor about DCCU this week are driving me crazy!!
BlackIceJoe - 6/13/2014, 11:50 PM
Well this is big news. I thought he would have been a better Hawkman. But I think he will do great as Aquaman. Hopefully he will die his hair blonde.

This is sh!t people.., look at those GIF's!
GoldSlayer1 - 6/13/2014, 11:53 PM
He should play a mix of DCAU JLU Aquaman and new 52 Aquaman.
JLU Aquaman was bad ass and looked a bit more barbaric. (Remember in JLU, Aquaman cut off his own hand to save his kid)
Logan5 - 6/13/2014, 11:54 PM
It's good to know who hacked my sh!t! These are good people!
BlackIceJoe - 6/13/2014, 11:55 PM
I wonder what the world engine did to the oceans. I wonder if it killed off lots of creatures because the oxygen levels in the ocean were changed. Another idea is it some how mutated them. Which would be cool.
Shroombeast - 6/13/2014, 11:55 PM

Those appearances are rumors. They might not be in the movie at all.
OrionPax - 6/13/2014, 11:55 PM
I don't know if I'm on board with JLA filming back to back with BvS.......I'd prefer all of Snyder's attention to be on JLA as opposed to it being split between the two,but who knows?Either way I've always been predominantly a DC fan so I'm PSYCHED,
