Jason Momoa to play Aquaman in Batman V Superman
Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice will see the big screen debut for Aquaman, with Jason Momoa set to play the role...
For some time now, Jason Momoa - he of the Conan reboot and early Game Of Thrones - has been linked with the role of Aquaman in Warner Bros' DC movie universe. Momoa recently said that he was "tired" of being asked whether he was taking the role on or not. But that might just be because he is indeed going to be the big screen's first Aquaman.
Hitfix has confirmed the news, reporting that "[director] Zack Snyder has already finalised his designs for the character so shooting can take place soon". Aquaman's appearance is reportedly going to come as a consequence of actions that took place in Man Of Steel.
Aquaman is set to have a relatively small role in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, but the idea is to tee the character up for a return in the planned Justice League movie. Aquaman may get a standalone film after that.
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is due in cinemas in May 2016.
