Jason Momoa Confirmed For AQUAMAN In BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
BadassDigest was first to mention the rumor and HitFix brought it back to life. Variety is confirming it and it's official that we'll be seeing Jason Momoa (Conan, Game of Thrones) as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Momoa had been spending a lot of time distracting fans, by putting down the character and teasing other DC roles (like Lobo). It's assumed the character will have a larger role to play in Justice League and could lead to a solo outing.
It's an interesting casting choice and one that will likely payoff in the end. Considering the character is one of the biggest jokes of the Justice League. Turning the punchline hero into a complete badass, is one way to get DC fans pumped for their future lineup of movies. Momoa is best known for hulking fantasy characters such as Conan and Game of Thrones' Khal Drogo.
