Jason Momoa Laughs Off AQUAMAN Rumors

Jason Momoa Laughs Off AQUAMAN Rumors

Rumors have been circulating for a while now that Jason Momoa has joined the cast of Batman Vs. Superman, and hopeful geeks everywhere have hung onto the hope that he'll be playing Aquaman. Momoa, on the other hand, isn't so sure.

Jason Momoa was questioned at East European Comic Con about the Aquaman rumors, and he himself found them quite humorous, saying, 

"I know, Aquaman!  I couldn't even be more random for Aquaman, you know, with the blonde hair... I don't even know where that comes from, it's like me being... uh... Robin or something. Who pulls that out? I see that on the internet and I'm like, Aquaman? A guy like... Lobo I could see."

When the girl asking the questions said, "But you could make Aquaman cool," he just laughed and said, "Well thank you." 

So, what do you think? Does this squash those Aquaman rumors, or is this just misdirection?

LMAO He's Casted already. Sucks for him though that he has to dodge the most questions.
Nomis - 5/11/2014, 9:57 PM
He'd be Perfect for LOBO!

LEEE777 - 5/11/2014, 10:08 PM

I hate this guy.
l0rdleg0las - 5/11/2014, 10:18 PM
This is Paul Rudd style denials when he has been locked into the part for weeks or even months.
thebearjew - 5/11/2014, 10:19 PM
id like to see the suits now
its about time
WeddingTux - 5/11/2014, 10:19 PM
why not put him in Doctor Strange as ....a bad guy
thebearjew - 5/11/2014, 10:21 PM
i believe him
WeddingTux - 5/11/2014, 10:25 PM
"It couldn't even be more random... I don't even know where that comes from, it's like: Who pulls that out? I see that on the internet and I'm like, Aquaman?" Lol I like this guy.
SugarYumYum - 5/11/2014, 10:27 PM
I get the appeal for him playing an Atlantean God but he'd suit Namor more than Aquaman. Give me the blonde.
soforizo - 5/11/2014, 10:28 PM
Lobo yes. Though this likely means he wasn't trying out for that role either.
Starfox - 5/11/2014, 10:28 PM
He would make an awesome Darkseid. Maybe he's the villain and there will be a cameo for Justice League!?!
Itsbeenfun - 5/11/2014, 10:31 PM
Flash or GTFO!
Emblemmaniac - 5/11/2014, 11:07 PM
Has been a fan of his for ages. I surely hope he is in The DCU in some way.

(And Honestly, i could se him as Aquaman (I think of the bearded 90s version specific) But sure. there are parts that he would be LOT better as

(Lobo or for that matter Vandal Savege)
BlackIceJoe - 5/11/2014, 11:10 PM
I can see Lobo too. Plus him being Vandal Savage also. I do think he will end up being in the DCCU because his name keeps coming up. I just wonder who he will be. I know some people want him as Martian Manhunter but I font think he is right for the part. But if he ends up being him at least that means MM is in the movie.
batmanvsuperman - 5/11/2014, 11:13 PM
Been saying this from day one he will notplay auther c. But lobo is perfect for him if be ever be in a comic book movie
loki668 - 5/11/2014, 11:18 PM
This PROVES it!!!

He's playing Aqualad
mgeoff88 - 5/11/2014, 11:19 PM
I agree that Jason Momoa is a much better fit for Namor than Aquaman. He would make Aquaman badass though.

I'm not sure Lobo being in MOS2/BVS makes sense... Could he be playing Martian Manhunter?
Himura - 5/11/2014, 11:21 PM
Him being Lobo? Yeah I could definitely see that!
Fits him better than the Rock I would say...
BlackIceJoe - 5/11/2014, 11:35 PM
I also think he could be an interesting Hawkman and if they go the villain route for him Ares or Sinestro could be interesting.
batmanvsuperman - 5/11/2014, 11:45 PM
@loki668 kill yourself two times
loki668 - 5/12/2014, 12:20 AM

Or, you could just show me how it's done........just once. Is there a problem here? If so, let's settle it. Or, you can continue to throw out suggestions like this and I WILL make an example out of you.
SuperCat - 5/12/2014, 12:43 AM
F*ck you, Jason. You're Aquaman.
loki668 - 5/12/2014, 12:49 AM

Well, that's ONE way to get him to do it. Just follow him around and say "F*ck you, Jason. You're Aquaman." until he breaks down and starts crying and yelling "FINE! I'M AQUAMAN! I'M AQUAMAN! I'M THE KING OF THE SEVEN F*CKING SEAS!" until he starts sobbing in surrender.

I'm actually FOR this plan.
SaxoWolf - 5/12/2014, 1:39 AM
StrangerX - 5/12/2014, 2:46 AM
He looks more like a Vandal Savage
SuperCat - 5/12/2014, 4:31 AM
LOL @ Loki. He'd kick my ass if I said that to his face!
loki668 - 5/12/2014, 4:47 AM
Stick and move, SuperCat, stick and move!
GliderMan - 5/12/2014, 5:10 AM
I personally don't want him as Aquaman, but I wouldn't complain.
BoomTubeB - 5/12/2014, 5:13 AM
Aqua Lobo Lad!

GinjaNinja - 5/12/2014, 5:14 AM
He's perfect for lobo, and perfect for namor. Not aquaman.
SuperCat - 5/12/2014, 5:16 AM
LMAO @ Loki!
nibs - 5/12/2014, 5:17 AM
Thank god he's not Aquaman
JayJayCAW - 5/12/2014, 6:25 AM
man knows his stuff, cool
GeekyCheekyChic - 5/12/2014, 7:23 AM
I still think he is the Man Hunter or SHAZAM- leaning towards Man Hunter. The Aquaman tease at the end of Justice League War after credits....that may be the storyline they want to test on screen The newly formed League vs Atlantis and Aquaman(eventually he realizes he was manipulated) that would make for an interesting sequel considering Snyder is probably throwing Darkseid at the heroes to kick this shit off.
sameoldthing - 5/12/2014, 8:00 AM
Please..no Darkseid. Sorry DC/WB Marvel beat ya to the punch with Thanos.
There are other villains to build around..Hope to see Mamoa in a cool role not some throw away character.
DaVinci31 - 5/12/2014, 8:02 AM
Floke - 5/12/2014, 9:23 AM
Is he sure? Cause he looks like a guy with alot of Seaman in him. I couldnt even pull of an Awkwardman.. And and the only way I could get that much Seaman in me, would be if I had a shootout with Peter North.
juwono - 5/12/2014, 9:40 AM
it would be cool if he is playing darkseid..
Gyasiman - 5/12/2014, 9:58 AM
Yes. This guy is awesome, but I do NOT, in any way, see this guy as Aquaman. However, he would be a great Lobo, Black Adam, or even Martain Manhunter (Though I think they should get an African American for him).
