For a long time actor Jason Momoa (Game Of Thrones) has been rumored to be a part of DC Cinematic Universe. A variety of rumors have come and gone about who he might be playing, he was rumored to play Martian Manhunter, Lobo and a few others but speculation has now ended as it looks like Jason Momoa will in fact be playing the king of Atlantis, Aquaman and will be appearing in 2016's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
For many years I have defended Aquaman from all the nay-sayers, I think he's a bad-ass character and more recent comic book material has proven that, his run in the New 52 portrayed him as a complete bad-ass and he's actually gained a lot more fans, also his appearance in the 'Injustice: Gods Among Us' video-game also gained him a few fans.
For the moment this appears only to be a strong rumor, a lot of sites are running with this news but it hasn't actually been confirmed by Warner Bros. But if this was true I would be so happy! I am a big Jason Momoa fan, from his time on Stargate: Atlantis, to his Conan movie (where I thought he was pretty good) and in Game Of Thrones, I'm not the biggest Game Of Thrones fan but I really like him on the show. He's got the physique down to a T for one and he certainly has a presence that a powerful character like Aquaman needs. An actor like this being cast in the role would also be very smart, it would grow the characters popularity.
The part of this rumor that I don't like is that he will be making an appearance in 'Batman V Superman'. This movie is looking like its just going to be Justice League, even though we know an actual Justice League movie is coming. When Batman V Superman was announced last year, I couldn't believe it. The two biggest superhero's of all time are going to be in the same movie! I was losing my mind over it.....but.....when Wonder Woman and Cyborg and now Aquaman have been added to the films roster, I'm not so excited because I have a feeling that the film will lose focus and try and force to many characters in. Now if WB do this right and keep these roles small, then I'm fine with that. But now I'm expecting news to come out that Flash and Green Lantern etc have been cast for Batman V Superman.
Different sites are running with different stories, some say he will be playing the character but now in BvS and some say he will be in BvS. So my advice is just wait until this is confirmed by anyone working on the project. But if this is true, I'm really happy with this casting.
What do you guys think of Jason Momoa possibly playing Aquaman?
