It has been long rumored that Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian, Game of Thrones, Stargate Atlantis) would be playing the Atlantean King, Aquaman. Yet there has not be any kind of official talk from Warner Bros., and Momoa has denied it time and time again. Even at the time of the first report, I thought this would be a good fit in casting.
Now, HitFix is reporting they are confirming Momoa has been cast as Aquaman. They are also saying that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder has finalized his designs for the character. Basically stating that Aquaman will be appearing in the upcoming Justice League launching pad movie.
Someone else who’s not particularly happy about what happened in that film is Aquaman. I’m not sure if that’s the actual name they’ll use or not, but what we’re hearing is that he is not pleased about the World Engine and what it did to the Indian Ocean. He will not have a major role in the film, but he will make an appearance, and it definitely sets him up to return once Snyder gets to “Justice League.”
Well what do you think? if this casting turns out to be legit, are you excited by it? Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be directed by Zack Snyder, will star Henry Cavill as Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and is slated to arrive in theatres on May 6, 2016.
