Rumor: Lost's Josh Holloway is being "strongly considered" for a role in Batman vs Superman

01.13.2014

Josh Holloway deserves to be in better movies than PARANOIA and BATTLE OF THE YEAR, so I really hope this news turns out to be true. CBM has learned from a source that the Lost star is being "strongly considered" for a part in Zack Snyder's BATMAN VS SUPERMAN. The site isn't sure who Holloway might be playing in the film, but they speculate he might be up for Aquaman.

I think he'd make an awesome Green Arrow, but DC is trying to build a cinematic universe with their comic book characters, and if the television series Arrow ends up being connected to the films, they'll probably have Stephen Amell play the character instead. I could definitely see Holloway as Aquaman, however no one knows how serious DC is about bringing the character to the big screen. DC and Warner Bros. are trying to build towards a JUSTICE LEAGUE movie with BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, so I guess there's a chance there could be a cameo by Aquaman, but there already seems to be so many characters in the film already, or at least rumored to appear. Like I said, I hope this does turn out to be true (especially if he is up for Aquaman), but for now, this is just another BATMAN VS SUPERMAN rumor. 

BATMAN VS SUPERMAN starring Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman will be in theaters on July 17th, 2015.

Josh Holloway just needs to be in better stuff than what he's been given. Honestly, I think anything to do with Green Arrow in movies is being tabled until they can figure out if TV and Movies will exist in the same universe. That being said, here's who I think he could end up playing:
a) Aquaman - this is going by looks alone. I honestly don't see him being a good fit for Aquaman. He's two much of a texan to pull off the Noble Prince aspect of Aquaman.
b) Green Lantern - He COULD play a

b) Green Lantern - He COULD play a decent Hal Jordan, if they decide to recast him. If not, I could definitely see him fitting the role of Guy Gardiner. Sure he doesn't have red hair. But Vincent Chase didn't have blonde hair in James Cameron's Aquaman movie a few years back. So no big deal.
c) Just a random character in the movie - perhaps playing Lex's #1 hench man. Perhaps Snyder is going a really random route with Jimmy Olson? Perhaps he'll be stepping in as the lead soldier character for the movie in place of Chris Melloni.

See...aliens show up...destroy two parts of the world...and then all the Earth bound heroes decide to come out of hiding and sort it all out. Simple really. Who needs them showing up in one movie at a time and all that slow build up sh*t??? Lets get to the pay off...first.

Can't they just cast him AS Sawyer from LOST?

Just walking around, not taking things seriously, giving everyone nicknames.

I'd watch that.

He would make a great METALLO

But now that they mention it.....I could kinda see him as Aquaman. But Kellan Lutz would make the ultimate Aquaman.

I would love to see him in a villain role or more of an anti-hero character, I think he would have that down after his turn on LOST. Aquaman is probably the strongest possibility though.

Why not Lex?

Funny how everyone's speculating that he may play a hero. Personally, I think he'd be a great Lex Luthor!

I'd like to see Josh Holloway and Alexander Skarsgård do some kind of buddy feature together, like Lethal Weapon or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid. Can't remember the last time we had a great buddy flick.

This is looking more like a Justice League movie rather than a proper Man of Steel sequel. They are jumping WAY to fast into this. But, if the rumors are true, I wouldn't mind seeing Holloway in the DC world. I could see him has Aquaman or Green Arrow.

And I absolutely think they should give the role of Green Arrow to Stephen Amell for the Justice League film. He has proved every week that he IS Oliver Queen/Arrow and would already carry over the character development from Arrow.

Geez! Is this Batman Vs Superman or Justice League ? There's a possibility it's going to have way too many super heroes and not so much character development. Remember all those other movies? Yeah! You know them....

Honestly speaking, don't think he's a terrific actor, but he does have that "superhero-ish" feel to him. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is still my top choice for Aquaman.

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol = Cruise's Jay Leno moment

The whole point of including Holloway and Renner was to introduce potential successors, only for both characters to be clearly marginalized when the end product emerged and with Cruise making it very clear he was years away from relinquishing the franchise to another actor/character.

So for that reason I'm glad to see Holloway being given ANYTHING approaching decent.

I agree. I thought it was BS that they killed Holloway in the opening moments of the movie. Josh Holloway could fit right at home as a character in the Mission Impossible franchise. Not to knock any of the other characters that were in the movie. But it would have been great to see a team of 5 instead of 4. And at the end of the movie Ethan Hunt gets killed off or decides to leave to be with his ex-wife. And from then it's Renner running the team with Holloway, Pegg, and that girl (forget

He was actually on my shortlist to play Aquaman and if these rumors are true consider me very excited. Would love to see him finally break out into a big budget film like this and I think he would absolutely own the role.

Regardless of the role, I really hope Josh Holloway will get the role. Aside from M:I Ghost Protocol, it's time for him to be in big budget movie like this.

Don't know why everyone assumes hes playing a hero. I could definitely see him being considered for Metallo. I don't really care for the actor though

And Arrow is definitely not getting connected to a bigger DC universe

Dynamite stuff.

He's be perfect for that movie. He brings a lot of warmth to his characters and makes them memorable. I don't see the Arrow continuity bleeding over into the films, so I think he'd make a great Green Arrow.

LOST is my all-time favorite TV show so yeah, I'd be really happy for Josh if he nabs a role in a blockbuster like Superman vs Batman. Heck, I even put his name down in Joblo's own Cast This: Batman when Affleck hadn't been announced yet. I could see him playing Green Arrow, but it really doesn't matter, because every single character could come off being absolutely perfect, but we'd still have to deal with Ben Affleck's crappy portrayal of Batman.

Yeah, I went there again. And yeah, I'm as

Well you said the two names I was thinking when I read the headline. He can probably pull off Aquaman or Green Arrow. I also feel that he doesn't get enough film roles. I like this dude when I first saw Lost.
