Jason Momoa Once Again Denies Rumors That He's Playing 'Aquaman' In BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN

Despite describing the rumor as "flattering", Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa has once again denied recent reports that he'll be taking on a starring role in either Batman Vs. Superman or Justice League. However, does his body language say otherwise? Check it out!

So, a flat out denial, but it's hard to judge whether he's telling the truth! Remember Paul Rudd saying he wouldn't be playing Ant-Man? However, it's worth noting that in The Hollywood Reporter's piece about Batman Vs. Superman being delayed until 2016 that they mention, "Jason Momoa is in negotiations for a role as well." With production now delayed, expect an even longer wait until we find out one way or the other. What do you guys think of Momoa's comments?

So with SvB delayed, you think they'd continue on with JLA. And @bravado, God bless you, you lovely human being.

Make him blonde and I can see it.
Jollem - 1/18/2014, 10:53 AM

McNyagano - 1/18/2014, 10:53 AM
You don't say? -.-
ALmazing - 1/18/2014, 10:56 AM
Yeah, remember when...

So, I'm not one to fuel fire to rumors like this, especially since I'm not a fan of him as Aquaman yet, but his body language SCREAMS that he's in talks for something! That was one of the worst denials I've seen. He's definitely up for something, and it migh be King Arthur. Who knows. Come on man, you're supposed to be an actor! Act! Lol
Xuperthorman - 1/18/2014, 10:58 AM
Momoa is shit. Get someone who can act.
DelTorite - 1/18/2014, 10:58 AM
Nice guy but lame actor, sorry guys. Or maybe I'm just jealous he made some sex scenes with Emilia Clarke....
Omarvls - 1/18/2014, 10:58 AM
He's playing Martian Manhunter
DCWB is going BIG TIME
They will shoot BvS JL back 2 back
MercwithMouth - 1/18/2014, 10:59 AM
The only interesting thing on this thread is @bravado's picture. Well done sir.
DelTorite - 1/18/2014, 11:01 AM
And this is my Aquaman choice. Same tv show, much more talented.

typicalfanboy - 1/18/2014, 11:02 AM
just look at it like he's not playing aquaman, which means he's playing either someone created for the movie, or another character from the comics.

plus paul rudd said it "sarcastically". like it was scripted.
CaptShipwreck - 1/18/2014, 11:02 AM
Good , soon they could start denying that a movie is getting made
BlackIceJoe - 1/18/2014, 11:05 AM
I think he will be in the Justice League movie just not as Aquaman. I could see him being Hawkman. I think he most likely will be working with DC because his name keeps coming up. I could see WB & DC making a Justice League, Justice League Dark & Justice League America movie. You have Guillermo wanting to do Justice League Dark and there is plans for Justice League. So what is to stop WB from doing Justice League America too. If they make a JLA movie too it helps WB get these characters names out there. You could have the cast being Hawkman, Animal Man, Aztek, Green Arrow, Atom, Adam Strange, Black Canary & Stargirl.

I think the Rock would make a better Aquaman than Momoa who is perfect for Lobo.
If he lands up in the film or Justice League or not, either way, I think this rumour merry go round is a brilliant and cost free way of making hype.
sintzu - 1/18/2014, 11:07 AM
the movie getting pushed back is a good thing cause they can make the story alot better if they take thire time and if they want it to be a justice league movie it will be alot easier cause they now have more then 2 years to make it work
DraculaX - 1/18/2014, 11:09 AM
Dat ass.

Anyway, who knows if he is lying or not.
Klone - 1/18/2014, 11:11 AM
As DEATHSTROKE? What are you on drugs?
ArmGunar - 1/18/2014, 11:11 AM
Dat ass !!!

Don't care now about the rumors, the film is far far away ... in 2016 :(
SaxoWolf - 1/18/2014, 11:13 AM
maybe he's playing peter pan?
SuperCat - 1/18/2014, 11:14 AM
Good!!

Jollem - 1/18/2014, 11:14 AM
i can see him as ocean master before aquaman. hell, i'd even see him as black manta before arthur :)
GenerationX - 1/18/2014, 11:15 AM
I don't care anymore
Sortis - 1/18/2014, 11:17 AM
I hope not, the only thing he has been good in is Game of Thrones. A role he was literally given no lines in English. Momo as Aquaman? No thanks, it will be worse than that time he played Conan. Which was dreadful.
Arrowhead77 - 1/18/2014, 11:18 AM
Lies, rumor, and inuendo...Confirm something positive about this movie WB, you stupid pcs of (crap).

Also, Manu Bennet >Jason Mamoa as Deathstroke. Also, why Aquaman? Seems better suited for other heroes...
SuperCat - 1/18/2014, 11:21 AM
TheBaroness89 - 1/18/2014, 11:24 AM
Well he can deny Aquaman....cause he is being considered for J'onn J'onnz.
MarkV - 1/18/2014, 11:24 AM
Whatever, man....

supermarioworldE - 1/18/2014, 11:25 AM
I'll care in two years, when they start making official announcements.

Bravado, now I can't remember what this article was about. :P
Omarvls - 1/18/2014, 11:31 AM
Meanwhile over at DC/WB Headquarters

DCWB Executive " Marvel won't know what hit them, they think we're waving the white flag but in realty we're bringing a tank to a knife fight'
We will shoot BvS and Justice League back 2 back and rule the summer 2016 and 2017 they wanted us to think BIG well what could be bigger then that ?"

DelTorite - 1/18/2014, 11:34 AM
He's also a terrible choice for Martian Manhunter. MM needs a more cerebral, charismatic actor. Imagine Momoa trying to act with prosthetics or motion capturing.
mctrinket - 1/18/2014, 11:34 AM
DrunkenNukem - 1/18/2014, 11:35 AM
Yeah whatever..i could care less...20[frick]ing16...
TheBaroness89 - 1/18/2014, 11:36 AM
Latest rumor is that the movie was pushed because the last act of BvS is the coming together of the justice league and casting was still ongoing.
Top candidates
Momoa for Manhunter
Rock for Cyborg
Holloway for Arthur Curry
Joaquin Phoenix Lex Luthor

As always taken with a grain of salt
