Today, Batman-News posted a new article in which they claim a source has tipped them off on a new cast member for Zack Snyder's untitled Batman/Superman film.
"According to my source, Momoa signed the dotted line and joined the Batman vs. Superman cast a couple of months ago. There’s no word yet on who Momoa will be playing, but previous rumors have tied him to Aquaman. I’m labeling this as a rumor for now, but I feel that this information is accurate based on who I got it from." - Batman-News

If true, it wouldn't be a shock. Back in December, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter had reported Momoa entered negotiations with Warner Bros. for a part in the Man of Steel sequel. A few weeks later Momoa denied those reports, telling IGN, "It's just rumors. It's flattering. I want to say something amazing, but I can't comment on rumors." Then a few days after that, Badass Digest backed up that rumor with possible info on the specific role in question. "I was recently told by a very, very trusted source that the role Jason Momoa was up for (but is currently denying) is definitely Aquaman, but it's essentially a cameo setting up the next movie."

BATMAN/SUPERMAN - Zack Snyder will direct the film from a screenplay being written by Chris Terrio from a screenplay by David S. Goyer and a story co-created by Goyer and Snyder. Zack Snyder’s Superman/Batman film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The film will also reunite “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Zack Snyder’s untitled Superman/Batman film which will now be arriving in theaters May 6, 2016.

Oh God, yes please.
charlie2094 - 4/25/2014, 1:43 PM
Very interesting! Could be a badass Aquaman, be great to see him on screen
DarkGrifter - 4/25/2014, 1:43 PM
Would rather it just be a smaller cameo though, I don't want this movie becoming too Justice League-heavy before Justice League.
Omarvls - 4/25/2014, 1:44 PM
I love Momoa
He would of killed it as Drax the Destroyer But........Aquaman would be EPIC

BvS is basically Chapter 1 of the Justice League Movie to be released in 2017

Thank you Lord

Looks nothing like Aquaman. I think Jason's better suited to play a villain.
JDUKE25 - 4/25/2014, 1:45 PM
Would be a BA Aquaman. Everyone outside of the trinity will probably just make cameos anyway.
Omarvls - 4/25/2014, 1:45 PM
Martian Manhunter?

Oh God that would be EPIC

DC/WB is finally getting it right
0megaDaGod - 4/25/2014, 1:46 PM
This movie's cast is crazy as phuck

I had a feeling he would be Metallo.
Omarvls - 4/25/2014, 1:46 PM
@GoldenOne33
There will be 20 pages for 3 reasons

Us who are happy that DC/WB is going EPIC
DC Only Fanatics who think this is how they get back as Marvel
Marvelites who need damp down anything DC/WB does
Highflyer - 4/25/2014, 1:47 PM
This is getting interesting...
JDUKE25 - 4/25/2014, 1:47 PM
Yeah, who knows? This could just turn out to be "Justice League Origin: Part 1"
GreenLantern519 - 4/25/2014, 1:47 PM
He'd be the perfect choice to legitimize Aquaman for the General Audience. He has a very commanding presence on screen and looks like a badass.
DaVinci31 - 4/25/2014, 1:48 PM
Called it.

But seriously, tho

TheManFromMars - 4/25/2014, 1:48 PM
@DaVinci31

From which movie is that gif from?
Omarvls - 4/25/2014, 1:50 PM
I don't think it would be Aquaman
You need to get a great actor for that role
I say Martian Manhunter would be perfect

Please make it happen DC/WB
ChrisEl - 4/25/2014, 1:50 PM
Batman vs. Superman vs. Wonder Woman vs. Cyborg vs. Aquaman vs. The Wizard of Oz vs...
Reasonnnn - 4/25/2014, 1:51 PM
Wait, so they're going to have all the JL members in one film?

I'm going to poor some out for ol Superman, he's getting the shaft haha
Omarvls - 4/25/2014, 1:51 PM
@ChrisEl

It's a Justice League movie
Just the 1st Chapter is BvS
charlie2094 - 4/25/2014, 1:51 PM
@Omarvls

Would be great as Martian Manhunter, be great if DC/WB got him on screen
DaVinci31 - 4/25/2014, 1:51 PM
I'd love for him to be Aquaman though. It'd make a bold statement to as what kind of Aquaman we would be getting. Not to mention it would shut up those people who enjoy believing that Aquaman is a joke.
Gusto - 4/25/2014, 1:52 PM
Ok, just call it [frick]ing JLA already.
Nomis - 4/25/2014, 1:52 PM
Aquaman? NO. LOBO...Hells Yea!

cipher - 4/25/2014, 1:52 PM



We'll see.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/25/2014, 1:53 PM
He'd be a great Aquaman, Vandal Savage, Lobo
Omarvls - 4/25/2014, 1:53 PM
This has never been a MOS sequel
DC/WB realized after MOS Box Office numbers that to get to the 1.2 + Billion range you need to go Avengers style
And that is what they are doing

I LOVE IT
themidnightking - 4/25/2014, 1:53 PM
Hey guys, I heard a crazy rumor somewhere that Superman is supposed to be in this movie as well, is that true?
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/25/2014, 1:53 PM
Martian Manhunter too
Starfox - 4/25/2014, 1:54 PM
DC FOR THE [fricking] WIN!!!!
SwingsetKnight - 4/25/2014, 1:55 PM
A-Aquaman...? Momoa?

...

.....

cipher - 4/25/2014, 1:55 PM
TheManFromMars- You should watch that movie. I'm not sure how much my opinion is worth 'round here, but, seriously, it's one of my favourites.

:)
TheRationalNerd - 4/25/2014, 1:55 PM
The a Rock needs to be Lobo. I could see this guy as Aquaman though.
DaVinci31 - 4/25/2014, 1:56 PM
Not even one page and the "just call it a JL film" bs argument is already coming up.

Emjeed - 4/25/2014, 1:56 PM
Awwwwww yeah!!!!
McNyagano - 4/25/2014, 1:57 PM


[frick] yeah!
TheManFromMars - 4/25/2014, 1:57 PM
@cipher

Yeah, I heard it's pretty good. I've been meaning to watch it, but I can't find it anywhere. No, I don't have Netflix.
DestroyallTrolls - 4/25/2014, 1:57 PM
Maybe Hawkman?
Coyuld work, he can play the gruff, distant, uber macho type.
BlackIceJoe - 4/25/2014, 1:57 PM
Will he dye his hair blonde? I thought Josh Holloway was going to play Arthur. I think Jason will be an interesting choice for Aquaman. I wonder if Josh will then be playing Green Arrow. So now we know Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg & Aquaman. Now we just need to find out Flash, Green Lantern & Martian Manhunter. I think making the Justice League an eight person team will be interesting and different. In the animated universe it is being set up that team will have eight. It has Captain Marvel instead of Aquaman and then in the next one he will most likely join as the eighth member.
Batman52 - 4/25/2014, 1:58 PM
I knew it Jason Momoa is Aquaman and I will stand by that. Wow!!! two casting news in two days!!
