Looks like Jason Momoa will be playing Aquaman in Superman movie after all!

Jun. 14, 2014by: JoBlo

According to Hitfix, the rumor that Khal Drogo and Conan himself, Jason Momoa is "totally" gonna be playing Aquaman (was he always that buff?) in the BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE movie. The website reports that despite WB not announcing it yet, director Zack Snyder has already finished the designs for his character, and will begin shooting him soon. That's all the info we have for now, but if we get more info, we will be reporting it here. This follows the rumors that Emily Blunt will be playing another character in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

Aquaman could work...

Aquaman and Atlantis is basically the underwater version of Thor and Asgard.

I like the casting, but.....

....in the immortal words of Rajesh Koothrappali......"Aquaman sucks!"

Seriously, they couldn't have found 5 or 6 heroes that didn't have to be in water to have any real power? What, the Wonder Twins were busy?

Lobo or gtfo

Aqua man seems like a serious joke. I'm not saying he can't pull it off but he would make a badass Lobo.

Good pick, but...

Im starting to feel like they are trying too hard to squeeze too many characters in too quickly. Sounds like a Justice League rush job. Won't bode well if DOJ dosen't work out...

If we're lucky it'll turn out like X-Men: DOFP. Seemed overcrowded during the casting phase but ended up working out in the movie.

I've liked him since SG: Atlantis. Not who I envisioned at first....but I'm totally on board now. He can own this role. Don't get hung up on looks...that's what makeup is for.

Official News From Comic Con

I'm holding out for the official news from the WB Panel at Comic Con - Lets not all get too excited about casting here and start pre-ejaculating (thats never good). Also, what ever happen to our sources at Latino Review?? They seem to be "in the know", but silent as of late. I predict story plot as follows.....Superman will do something contraversial and draw out Bats for a take-down fight....this will draw out Aquaman and Wonder Woman to the scene and then they all make nice and go have a

Nice choice

He makes Aquaman a little cooler. But Momoa will tower over Cavil and the others.

Also, he better not bleach his hair blonde.

For a Superman sequel, there sure isn't much Superman in this thing.
So lame.

How do you know there won't be much superman? All these other characters aside from batman could all have minimal roles. They need to drop batman vs superman and just call it dawn of justice.. I don't see aqua man or wonder women coming into the film until the end to set up future films.

Momoa has an Atlantean look about him, if there is such a thing. I think they can give him blonde hair if they make it look like it's been naturally bleached by the saltwater and sun. I think this is will be fine.

The only casting that really sucks so far, IMO, is Wonder Woman.

Just wrong

I see him more as Martian Manhunter. Josh Holloway could be a good Aquaman I'd say.

If you go by looks only I agree with you, but if you cast those two roles focusing on the personalities I would go the opposite way. Far as I know Momoa is good in in physical, arrogant and angry roles, while Holloway would do much better portraying the intellectual Martian detective.

ENOUGH! Just drop the damn Batman vs Superman from the title since its obviously all about setting up the Justice league movie in one go.

Sweet. But I'm still a little worried about how Snyder is going to fit all of these characters into the movie naturally. Unless the 'v' in the title actually is referring to a court case and Batman calls all these other heroes to testify against Superman after the destruction in Man of Steel....

But

Won't this lead to the bizarre visual dynamic of Aquaman and Batman being fucking enormous compared to Superman? At 6'1" Cavill is a full 3 inches shorter than Momoa and Affleck. Given that Momoa is always ripped, and Affleck is said to be going HAM in his preparation for Batman, three inches of additional height and muscle on everyone around Superman is going to be hard to hide onscreen. I guess he can always Tom Cruise it and wear lifts.

They've been using camera tricks to make people appear taller or shorter since the early days of film. I'm pretty sure Cavill will be fine.

I read somewhere, probably speculation, that Aquaman and the atlanteans were supposed to be more "barbaric" in the movie, which I guess would explain why they made the sort of unorthodox choice with Momoa. He made a great Drogo and, even though I didn't love the movie, a good Conan. I like Momoa and am fine with this casting but if it's true i don't know how I feel about the barbaric direction...

Momoa might look like Lobo, but I doubt he has the right personality, or range. The Comedian was imposingly deranged played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, he could be a fine Lobo. He was about as perfect in the role as Downey has been for Stark. In a darker and more brutish way. I don't think you could find a better Czarnian unless you got Bardem to reprise his bug-eyed Romeo Dolorosa.

Momoa already looks pretty otherworldly, Aquaman should be an interesting fit for him. He might look even more exotic if they make him blond. I hope he's long haired and bearded like the more Poseidon-looking versions of the character.

While I really think Momoa would be better suited to playing a character like Lobo and that someone like Nikolaj Coster-Waldau should've been Aquaman, I'm glad we're getting to see the character anyway and that DC isn't buckling to the "Aquaman is lame" sentiment. Also, Bryce-Dallas Howard as Mera! And hey, she was the Lady in the Water too, after all.

This movie is gonna have a serious character overdose, and that's gonna kill it (this is great casting though).

I mean, really, why even pretend it's a Superman sequel? This is going to be one of two things: A crappy Justice League movie, or a crappy advertisement for a theoretical Justice League movie.

This is awesome casting. Glad to see DC cast someone as physical, badass, and intimidating as Momoa as Aquaman. He's going to OWN the role and kick ass and this is a huge positive step forward for the Justice League film.
