Rumor: Sources claim Jason Momoa is signed to appear in Batman vs Superman

Apr. 25, 2014by: Alex Maidy

Jason Momoa has been linked to BATMAN VS SUPERMAN almost as long as the movie has been announced. While it has been a few months since the rumor has made the rounds, it is now back once again. This time a source is saying it is more than just a mere rumor. Fansite Batman News is citing a source that says Momoa has actually signed a contract to appear in BATMAN VS SUPERMAN.

This comes a day after the casting of Cyborg, a role some connected with Dwayne Johnson or Momoa. Instead, theater actor Ray Fisher got that part which means Momoa could still be up for Aquaman or any other number of roles. Johnson has long been connected with playing Green Lantern and Josh Holloway's name popped up as an Aquaman contender. So, is Momoa a good fit for Aquaman?

I think we often forget that Momoa is also an adept actor at playing villains and has done so various times in recent years. Whether it be as Khal Drogo on GAME OF THRONES or opposite Sylvester Stallone in BULLET TO THE HEAD, Momoa could be playing a secondary villain to Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor.

Whatever the actual role is, should this turn out to be true, Momoa is a solid addition to a film that has been chock full of intriguing casting decisions. BATMAN VS SUPERMAN starring Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Laurence Fishburne, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Ray Fisher, and Diane Lane is slated to open May 6, 2016.

He was terrible in billet to the head. IF he's playing a super hero, HE'S DEF PLAYING MMANHUNTER. But I imagine it's a minor role like Lex's muscle

Vandal Savage

I agree with XSsoCX. The character would give him some range and he can get out of the barbaric brute he thinks he's being typecast as (even though Vandal is technically a caveman).

Dear Oscar voters

For your consideration: a dramatic scene between Jason Mamoa and Gal Gadot.

Still say Kalibak, but Carter Hall would be pretty cool too.

Thinking a little outside of the box here: When I look at him I imagine he might be able to pull off a young Ra's al Ghul.

Do anybody remember his reason for turning down the role of Drax the Destoryer in GotG. I thought it had to do with not wanting to be in comic book films

Conan is a comic as well, I don't know if he turned the role down or just didn't get it? or maybe he was talking to DC about this role and wanted it more (as they had a 2015 release date at the point the GotG news broke)

If I recall correctly he didn't want to by typecast as the big muscular type who just grunts and is just a brute, something along those lines

I like the guy

Decent actor, decent charisma but a couple of things about him - First, he would have made a great Conan if he buffed up a bit more and if he played the character a bit more dour. Second, Kal Drogo was a pussy. Really, what did he do? He killed one little guy and that's it. Give us something to back up the claims about him being a beast of a warrior.

Anyway I welcome him to this movie

Pussy?! He never lost a fight, read a book before you make statements that make you sound like a fool lol. He was the greatest Dothraki warrior of his time!

Can he act?

He had a limited role in Game of Thrones...the only work I know him from was Stargate Alliance and he was a terrible actor...monotone voice and one dimensional
His character in GoT was very similar....the grunty barbaric type...hopefully his lines will be limited

He'd be a perfect Lobo! But Lobo needs his own movie, and that movie needs to be rated R.

I think he'll end up playing a villain in this. Possibly Darkseid.

Get the other guy on Game of Thrones for Aquaman.

No, he means the cocky guy from the end of season 3, that joined the Mother of Dragons, that they swapped actors for in season 4. He reminds me of the pretty boy from Catching Fire.

I hope Mamoa is a villain. There's too many heroes in the film now.

Doomsday maybe?

Mamoa's size could help balance out the weedy Eisenberg.

So Villain, great- Heroe no thanks.

Momoa will be the after-credits scene

After Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg take out the Lex Corp robots that went haywire and attacked Gotham City, Luthor will be talking to someone and say something like "they're more powerful than I expected. I will need your help." then Jason Momoa as Darkseid will turn to the camera and smile. end.
