Momoa As Aquaman?!
By Dr. Know on June 14th, 2014
Although Warner Bros. hasn’t officially confirmed it yet, HitFix is reporting that Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian) has been cast as Aquaman in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Unusual choice for the role; however, one mustn’t forget word of Momoa being in talks for an undisclosed role surfaced last Christmas. So, despite what I’m sure will be to the chagrin of many a fanboy, don’t be surprised if this casting is indeed true.
Ben Affleck will star as Batman/Bruce Wayne in the Zack Snyder-directed movie, while Man of Steel‘s Henry Cavill and Amy Adams wil reprise their roles as Superman/Clark Kent and Lois Lane respectively. Gal Gadot is confirmed as Wonder Woman, while Jesse Eisenberg is playing Lex Luthor. Jeremy Irons fills out the cast as Alfred Pennyworth.
Academy Award-winning screenwriter Chris Terrio (Argo) recently boarded the project to punch up the earlier draft(s) by Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer.
Zack Snyder directs.
Batman vs. Superman is scheduled for May 6, 2016.
