Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa has been a fan favorite to play Lobo for a role in 2016's Batman Vs Superman for a long time and was even rumored to be taking on the role of Aquaman. While at a Comic Con in Detroit Mamoa gave his (lighthearted) thoughts on the matter, after being asked by a reporter from ComicBook.com. Here's what he had to say:

What does everything tell you? No. Stop asking me. It's so annoying. Sorry, you're not annoying.  Oh you're the press? Get the f*** out of here. Here, put this in there - you're a d***, you're a d***. [Allowing the audience to laugh] You're not a d***, I'm just playing. You know what, I think it started when people said 'What superhero would you play?' And I'd say Batman and Superman, they'd be awesome together. Then people were like, 'He's in Batman vs. Superman!' I'm like, I really like Lobo. 'HE'S LOBO!!' And then some a**hole was like 'He's Aquaman! And I'm like - what did you just call me? Where the f*** do you pull out Aquaman? Seriously... And then it shows up on the internet. Not that it's a bad rumour.

LOL, someone's grumpy.
Maestro - 5/19/2014, 12:08 PM
Lol, Lobo yes.

Aquaman, I cant see it.

SpiderMiles - 5/19/2014, 12:09 PM
I would get pissed off if people kept asking me who I was playing in a movie after I already didn't answer that question 1,000,000 times.
FirstAvenger - 5/19/2014, 12:13 PM
Yeah that has to be annoying.
Snooper - 5/19/2014, 12:15 PM
He is obviously trying to get into character for Lobo in this excerpt.
MrBlackjack - 5/19/2014, 12:19 PM
I don't care if he's Arthur or Lobo, I'm fine with both!
write33 - 5/19/2014, 12:21 PM
so he.........doesn't......want to talk about this?
JohnGazelle - 5/19/2014, 12:21 PM
He's in it. He's really good at lying though XD
DaVinci31 - 5/19/2014, 12:21 PM
Marxman12 - 5/19/2014, 12:21 PM
He's playing LOBO! He just confirmed it!
Lol.

@Batmaniac, i couldn't agree his Conan the barbarian was ridiculous, he should be begging for this.
TheBuoyWonder - 5/19/2014, 12:22 PM
He's totally in it.
BatManiac - 5/19/2014, 12:22 PM
Oh, my bad. I didn't read the last bit. Still, I don't like his attitude.
Marxman12 - 5/19/2014, 12:22 PM
He'll play an Atlantean Lobo. =)
daddybear - 5/19/2014, 12:22 PM
More*

Well Variety had him down so something fishy is going on. Maybe he was Casted beforehand and something happened that caused him to drop out of the film. I really hope he's in the movie though.
BatManiac - 5/19/2014, 12:22 PM
Go away, Momoa!
Brainiac13 - 5/19/2014, 12:23 PM
@MrBlackJack

Did you check your email. :(

I kind of don't want him in the DCCU if he keeps saying he's not and then comes out and says he is after all. It seem odd that his name does keep coming up though. The real sucky thing for Jason is if he isn't apart of this DC movie series. Because his name does keep getting brought up and being in the movie would help his career. So not being in the movie would suck. I kind of think he is in Justice League in some kind of fashion just isn't aloud to talk about it yet. I see him more of Hawkman over Aquaman.

The funny thing would be if when everyone keeps saying he's Aquaman he was instead playing another person that can live in the ocean and that being Namor instead of Aquaman. So something got lost in translation.

He could make for an interesting Lobo also Vandal Savage. One thing is for sure having to keep answers these questions must be a pain in the butt.

Someone: How would you sum up Momoa?
Me: Shit actor, shitter person.
BatManiac - 5/19/2014, 12:24 PM
kevberg - 5/19/2014, 12:24 PM
can you even imagine him with Blonde hair? c'mon! thats crazy why would he be Aquaman?
ReeferInferno - 5/19/2014, 12:24 PM
So is he in it or not?
hierarchy - 5/19/2014, 12:25 PM
I think he could be playing the mutant leader if they went that route.
GliderMan - 5/19/2014, 12:25 PM
"He's Aquaman!"

"What the [frick] did you just call me?"
Highflyer - 5/19/2014, 12:26 PM
@ReeferInferno If that was sarcasm, you totally nailed it! LOL
ManCalledSting - 5/19/2014, 12:26 PM
Game of Thrones star? I think not. But I'd like to see him as a soldier who is genetically motified with Kryptpnion DNA, and becomes Doomsday. Or Metallo. But he's to Namorish to be Aquaman. Aquaman is one of the characters where certain looks matter.
kevberg - 5/19/2014, 12:26 PM
lttobts whats the f@$k is up with that? do you know the guy? how do you know hes a " sh@ty person"?
KINGPEN266 - 5/19/2014, 12:26 PM
LOL THIS GUY
DaVinci31 - 5/19/2014, 12:26 PM


Not that it's a bad rumour.


KingQuicksilver - 5/19/2014, 12:26 PM


LTTOBTS - 5/19/2014, 12:26 PM
This guy is only crying because The Rock got the role instead.
MrBlackjack - 5/19/2014, 12:27 PM
@Brainaic I'm on it!
BlackBolt72 - 5/19/2014, 12:27 PM
Do i get the feeling they are overloading this movie. My as well make it JLA 1.0. A lot of focus leaving Supes.
KingQuicksilver - 5/19/2014, 12:27 PM
@DaVinci31

HAHHAHAHAHHA

Goji54 - 5/19/2014, 12:27 PM
Thank god! The last thing this movie needs is ANOTHER bad actor in the wrong role.
soforizo - 5/19/2014, 12:28 PM
I like him, but his range is very limited. Still you need physically imposing actors, so he's got to be in anyone's short list.
HeadPool420 - 5/19/2014, 12:28 PM
He seems kind of grouchy. Hope he cheers up soon.
Highflyer - 5/19/2014, 12:28 PM
I swear, if it is later confirmed by WB that he is in BVS I'm not going to believe a word when actors/actresses deny casting rumors.
Rulk - 5/19/2014, 12:30 PM
@ Reefer - He's saying no. Read it again:

"I think it started when people said 'What superhero would you play?' And I'd say Batman and Superman, they'd be awesome together. Then people were like, 'He's in Batman vs. Superman!' I'm like, I really like Lobo. 'HE'S LOBO!!' And then some a**hole was like 'He's Aquaman! "

He's saying they're all made up rumors. Like Bryan Cranston being Lex Luther.
