Jason Momoa Officially Cast As Aquaman For “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice”

JasonMomoa-ARTICLEIMAGEHaving been rumored and speculated for a number of months, “Game of Thrones” and “Conan” star Jason Momoa has officially been confirmed to play the King of Atlantis, Aquaman in “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

With rumors spreading as far back as December of 2013 when Gal Gadot was officially cast as Wonder Woman, Momoa was constantly teasing social media that he might or might not doing the role. Recently, director Zack Snyder had this to say regarding Aquaman during a morning show where the hosts were bashing the character.

“The cool thing is that with Aquaman, his trident — people don’t realize this — that could actually cut the flesh of Superman, if they came in contact. That’s a thing that’s in the canon. And he’s super-strong, because of course, he can exist at these super-deep depths, so when he comes up here it’s like he’s crazy strong. … Not to say he’s in my movie, or anything like that, he’s just pretty badass — he has the potential to be badass. That’s all I’m saying.”

“Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice” is set to be released March 25, 2016.

  1. aquaman was a bad ass in injustice video game BUT there starting to include alotta back stories to introduce for this movie. to much at one time sunk spiderman 3

    • Well we don’t talk about Spider-Man 3, mostly due to how terrible it was. But I am always afraid of how Zack Snyder is cramming so many characters into a movie I was under the understanding was only about Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. What I think is going to happen is all these extra Justice League members are just going to have short small roles towards the end of the movie to hype up the Justice League movie.

      • hahaha yep we don’t mention batman and robin either IT NEVER HAPPEND!!!!! that’s exactlu what im afraid of is instead of this being just about the 2 of them its just a 2 hr trailer for justice league. they didn’t have that issue with avengers but they also had several stand alone movies first. NOTHING WRONG WITH COPYING A PLAN THAT WORKED PEOPLE!!!!

      • Yeah but Zack Snyder is so far from Josh Weldon. And Avengers worked because it had a good, well established set up. As far as I’m concerned Man of Steel did nothing to set up future movies and all Snyder is doing is cramming everything together thinking it’s going to work. A lot of people forget what he did to Watchmen.

      • I totally agree the only thing in Man of Steel that was set up was about 2 seconds of LexCorp logo before it got demolished in Smallville. Now if batman started off the movie just after the destruction of metropolis and he is trying to track these “supers” he would have footage and maybe even try to side with the government echoing the last scene of man of steel then it would work but cramming everyone in is a bad idea.
