Game of Thrones' Jason Momoa in talks for a role in Batman vs. Superman

Dec. 9, 2013by:

GADZOOKS! This is some interesting news!

Jason Momoa (GAME OF THRONES, CONAN) is in talks for a role in BATMAN VS SUPERMAN. What role is it? They did not specify. The movie as a whole is locked down pretty tight. So far we've got Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) but who else are we missing?

One name I'm going to immediately throw off the list is Lex Luthor. The next possibility brought up by The Hollywood Reporter who delivered the scoop is rumored villain Doomsday "a Kryptonian scientifically engineered into an intergalactic killing machine". Also known as a f*cking awesome match for Supes. Remember the great death match in The Death of Superman? Then there's Martian Manhunter "a super-powered alien trapped on Earth". That's if they want to cram in another member of the Justice League.

If they need a villain, can I suggest Darkseid? Though I gotta say it would be nice to keep this film simple.

HOW IS THIS A "SEQUEL"?

How is this still exactly a sequel to Man of Steel? This new film is starting to brink on Avengers level terrority and that film wasn't a direct sequel to any one film that preceded it. I've no problem in the direction that this Batman vs Superman film is going in but for anyone to keep referring it as a sequel to MOS is ridiculous.

Kalibak

Why is everyone overlooking Kalibak? He's a perfect intro to bigger DC canon and works well with Mamoa's more bestial presence. Plus, you know, son of Darkseid.

Is the whole god damn DC universe going to be in this movie? I think all it's going to be is a two hour version of the Mortal Kombat select screen. Bad techno playing while a raspy voice yells out each characters name, as an image of said character flashes on screen for two seconds.

Vandal Savage

For those saying Savage, I hope you're right. Dude looks just like him and he could really pull off the hyper-intelligent former caveman thing. Perhaps they'll even tie Vandal's origins into the Kryptonian ships that landed on Earth thousands of years ago. Maybe it was something from one of these scout ships (or a bigass rock of Kryptonite that came down in the form of a meteor) that made him invulnerable. Vandal Savage trying to take over the world would definitely get Wonder Woman off of her

Here we go again

Although this is just a rumour, it's still disappointing. This guy was easily the worst thing about Game of Thrones. A thespian he is not. But I guess when you match him up with the acting juggernaut that is Gal Gadot it will make more sense.

Just like with Man of Steel, this movie is just going to fling as much shit at the wall as possible in hopes that something sticks.

This is why I wasn't sure about having Zod showing up in MoS - to bring a heavy hitter in to the picture before Supes has even revealed himself to the world...doesn't allow for a connection to be formed between the people of Earth (or the US) and the man himself. To go the route I'm suggesting would simply result in them following the path of the Reeves' movies (1 and 2) and the animated series - I get that - but that's how I wanted it to go. Having Zod show up and letting what happened

To go the route I'm suggesting would simply result in them following the path of the Reeves' movies (1 and 2) and the animated series - I get that - but that's how I wanted it to go. Having Zod show up and letting what happened happen, seems to suggest Zack and co perhaps want people to be alienated by Superman's arrival from the off - and he's got to win their trust. Problem is...would seem like a let down if after seeing Superman take on the big and the bad in Zod and his army...he's going to have to deal with a human foe next. Even worse...after the destruction of two parts of the world...we then see Supes take on Doomsday. I mean, ever since the guy showed up...there's been death and destruction - when are the people of Earth supposed to learn to cherish him? It feels like Marvel’s dominance is forcing DC to get right to all the juicy bits, leaving out all the building up to an event. There’s a reason the Harry Potter movies, Avengers and the Lord of the Rings had such a great pay off and I’m pretty sure the build up to the final events had something to it. Perhaps Twilight fans might say that about their series (bbbbrrrrr ...ugh).

Looks like Supes 2 is going to be a big budget telenovela with dozens of main characters and hundreds of side characters.

Don't worry fellas. Even if he is getting cast for Doomsday, he'll just be a guy in a mechsuit rather than an actual burly supervillain. Cause that's how it's done these days.

Please don't be doomsday...

This movie is clearly not going to be about Superman and more about Justice League with the inclusion of Batman/Wonder woman. Supes deserves his own movie, especially if he's going to go up against Doomsday. Can totally see him as Lobo as another Schmoe pointed out below (though I don't think they'll go with such an non mainstream character)

Darkseid

I'm on board if its Darkseid and setting up a JL movie, really don't want to see Doomsday this early in the series, and should maybe be saved for a third Sups or JL movie, hope its not the Martian just because it would be over kill on the heroes. Have him be Darkseid and set up a JL film

Please not Doomsday. Momoa could pull it off with a heaping helping of CG, but it's far too early for him to show up.

I know a lot of people don't think they would bring in Doomsday or Darkseid. But what if it will be the setup for the next movie and he will only appear at the end.

What I'm really trying to say is...you look like a fucking alien man.
It's too soon for those alien baddies, they wouldn't get enough screen time if bat and supes are actually in a conflict for a little while. I love Manhunter, but don't want him played by that guy, or even in this film at all. I'm just gonna hope that he is Luthor's henchman or something.

I really cannot imagine they would bring Doomsday or Darkseid into the picture already. Looks wise Mamoa could pull off Lobo very well, but no way that's the character they are going with. So I'll go out on a limb and say Vandal Savage as another DC character I think Mamoa could be.

Is he going to play Mr. Freeze? He already tried to play another Arnold character.
Also, who is running this film? Is there an actual script? It seems like this movie is being made by a committee, not a director with a vision (no offense to Snyder). It seems like they're trying to cram as much as possible into this film (Batman, Wonder woman, Luthor, now possible Doomday, Nightwing, etc). Heck, they didn't even know what Batman they wanted, since they tried to get Bale to come back. It's

Out of the listed choices above, my best guess would be Martian Manhunter.

He would make a good addition to the cast, but I feel this movie is starting to get a little too crowded for its own good. Instead of Man of Steel 2 it has become Superman and friends.

Way

to early to have Doomsday show up, he should be someone that they build towards, maybe after JLA 1 or 2. If you unleash Doomsday now, ANY villain they get after that would just look weak in comparison.

"It would be nice to keep this film simple."

I agree with that, but unfortunately "simple" went out the window once they decided to shoehorn Batman, his love interest, Robin/Nightwing, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Lex Luthor, and now possibly Doomsday or Darkseid or any of these characters Mamoa might play. On top of that don't forget Lois Lane, Perry White, Ma Kent, and the other Daily Planet workers from MoS as well. Quite a lot of characters and potential plotlines for what should've been a simple MoS sequel. Safe to say this is turning

But Mamoa is a very capable actor who can certainly show off his commanding presence, evidenced by Game of Thrones. Should be interesting to see him if he gets a part in this
