UPDATE: Jason Momoa Denies Reports That He Will Star In BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN

According to a new report, Jason Momoa will NOT be starring in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel follow-up (tentatively titled Batman Vs. Superman) as Doomsday, Metallo or anyone else. The source? The Game of Thrones actor himself! Hit the jump for further details...

IGN just spoke to Jason Momoa about his remarkable new series for Sundance, The Red Road, and despite rumors, he is not in Man of Steel 2 aka Batman vs. Superman.


That's all there is for now, but we'll be sure to bring you his exact quotes as soon the site updates their post. It's worth noting that this is far from the first time an actor has denied being involved with a movie (e.g. Paul Rudd and Ant-Man), but Momoa did once pass up on the opportunity to star in Guardians of the Galaxy, so perhaps comic book adaptations aren't his thing?

UPDATE: The site has now updated their story, and the Game of Thrones star is quoted as saying, "It's just rumors. It's flattering. I want to say something amazing, but I can't comment on rumors. I'm not involved in it. Maybe someone said, 'You should be in this!' and I said, 'Yeah that would be great!' And it just went too far." What do you guys think?

No surprise. Bet he auditioned for Doomsday, but they went for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson instead.
MrCBM56 - 1/11/2014, 2:02 PM
Either that or he didn't get the role.
McNyagano - 1/11/2014, 2:02 PM
Yeah because he's totally gonna admit it. Actors lie, nothing new here. Also FIRST!!!!!
Reasonnnn - 1/11/2014, 2:04 PM
Really missed out on playing Drax, but then again I don't blame him for asking for more moolah. #thestruggle #justinbieberYOLOSWAG

Since we all know what happend to Paul Raud and Antman, and as a fan of Jason Momoa my self... i will cross my fingers that this is not true
DraculaX - 1/11/2014, 2:06 PM
Either he's pulling the old I lie trick, negotiations fell through or WB choose The Rock over Momoa.
Insomnia - 1/11/2014, 2:11 PM
@DraculaX

Correct me if i'm wrong, but didn't Dwayne Johnsson confirm that he is just going to be in a DC movie (not specific Batman vs Superman)

And honesty, The Rock for Doomsday? What a waste of starpower.
Insomnia - 1/11/2014, 2:11 PM
Honestly*
DraculaX - 1/11/2014, 2:14 PM
@Insomnia Well unless we get an announcement at CC this year, the only DC film we know is Batman vs. Superman.

Heck, I wouldn't be surprise if they saved The Rock for the Justice League movie.
DraculaX - 1/11/2014, 2:15 PM
Come to think about it, how films does The Rock film this year? Would he had time to film Batman vs. Superman unless its a cameo?
FOOM - 1/11/2014, 2:16 PM
Filming starts next month. Everything seems to be last minute down to the wire in Hollywood CBMs these days whether we're talking this film, TASM2 or DOFP.
SuperGuy83 - 1/11/2014, 2:16 PM
Im really hoping Lex Luthor is The Main Villain for This Besides Plus I want him and Superman to hash it with Him in LexoSuit like from Public Enemies Plus Lennix would be a perfect Pawn for Luthor
DraculaX - 1/11/2014, 2:16 PM
Now IGN updated their story: He said it be cool to be in BvS and he may or may not have auditioned.
Hellsboy - 1/11/2014, 2:19 PM
I'd rather metallo be the main villain with lex and he plays no one at all
CasanovaRodeo - 1/11/2014, 2:19 PM
Khal Drogo, this guy is so bad ass.
DEVLIN712 - 1/11/2014, 2:20 PM
Paul Rudd denied being Antman a week before being announced.
Besides, WB would be idiots not to sign him up as Lobo, he's a perfect fit.
JerBear - 1/11/2014, 2:20 PM
Now that IGN actually updated the story with an actual quote... That was a weak denial.
SuperGuy83 - 1/11/2014, 2:21 PM
I dont want to see Superman & Wonder Woman an item in this film its bad enough there a couple in The New 52 when they shouldn't be Superman & Lois Forever
Insomnia - 1/11/2014, 2:22 PM
@Devlin

Amen to that
ALmight - 1/11/2014, 2:22 PM
Yeah, reminds of...

sameoldthing - 1/11/2014, 2:26 PM
Rock should be Lobo.
Mamoa can be Bizzaro.
dckizzle - 1/11/2014, 2:28 PM
Idc I want to know who lexs is
AGoodHonestMan - 1/11/2014, 2:30 PM
Wasnt Mamoa the favorite to land the Drax job in GOTG before Batista got it instead because he held out for more money? Is he dumb enough to do it again?
SuperGuy83 - 1/11/2014, 2:32 PM
MOS Already Implied Lex Luthor will be the villain Just As BB suggested The Joker would be in The Dark Knight and also Whiplash in Iron Man 2
stephens2177 - 1/11/2014, 2:33 PM
Mamoa as lobo or vandal savage
The rock as black Adam or Amazo
Enphlieuwince - 1/11/2014, 2:35 PM
Yes! Then he's still available for the Namor that may never happen...
RetroFit - 1/11/2014, 2:36 PM
Doomsday should be completely CGI. And at least as big as Hulk. No way should it be a person in makeup. I'm also glad he passed on GotG. Drax looks perfect just as is and I couldn't see him any other way.
FOOM - 1/11/2014, 2:38 PM
Still nothing about Aquaman in this. Fingers crossed because I could do with a laugh.
blkchi - 1/11/2014, 2:39 PM
loving rudd as ant man

What was the Whiplash foreshadowing?
TheWolverine08 - 1/11/2014, 2:43 PM
So many rumors.
superbatspiderman - 1/11/2014, 2:43 PM
Momoa is an interesting choice for Lobo. I think they should go with an older choice and have Danny Trejo as Lobo.
MrCameron - 1/11/2014, 2:45 PM
IMO he'd be playing Bizzaro if anyone.
ahhmynuts - 1/11/2014, 2:45 PM
danny trejo as lobo? hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

ds9epicfan - 1/11/2014, 2:47 PM
Only time will tell if he's telling the truth or not.Just gonna have to wait for official casting announcements for BvsS.
Insomnia - 1/11/2014, 2:48 PM
@Superbatsspiderman

Seen the machete movies? He is practical an serious Lobo in that franchie
stephens2177 - 1/11/2014, 2:49 PM
The rock would make a perfect Amazo,because he would have all the leagues powers and he could get extremely physical fighting everyone at once.

Mamoa would look good on a space hog for lobo,or giving off that evil smile for vandal savage
NFSxThanos - 1/11/2014, 2:51 PM
To everyone talking about Paul Rudd as Ant-Man: He was telling the truth with al l the rumors. And tech. he hasn't signed a contracted yet. They waited for Anchorman to come out first and for the new draft of the script which was sent in today. He is signing the contract, but they are still negotiating a price.
UltimateWarrior - 1/11/2014, 2:53 PM
If Dwayne Johnson is going to play a LexCorp. made Doomsday, I would expect a kind of merging of Bizarro and Doomsday.
