Jason Momoa signing up for Batman Vs Superman

News Simon Brew 10 Dec 2013 - 06:26

The star of the Conan reboot, Jason Momoa, is on the radar for Zack Snyder's Batman Vs Superman project...

The cast of Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman Vs Superman movie looks like it's got another body on board, as it's being reported that Jason Momoa is now in talks about joining the film.

Momoa, whose highest profile roles thus far have seen him headline the Conan remake, and also appear in Game Of Thrones, is apparently set to play either Doomsday or the Martian Manhunter in the movie. The exact role remains guarded, but those are the two possibles that are being widely mooted.

Momoa joins a cast that also includes Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gil Gadot, Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne. The movie itself is released on July 17th 2015.

Been a fan since Stargate Atlantis.

This film either needs to be 3 hrs or Supes will hardly be in it!

Not looking forward to this film any more as there seems to be too many characters in it

Oh look people saying its overcrowded!! This is getting old.

Ronan V Superman V Batman.... now that'd be a film and a half!

Woah! Is that Bear Grylls in that picture or what!?

"..is in talks about joining..." is very different from the "..signing up.." that's in the title.

I agree, big fan of his! when he was Ronan in Stargate Atlantis....Perfect and brilliant! I think he would make a great Doomsday to be honest....

Lobo? he he

Wait what?! Could this mean Jason Momoa aka Ronan aka Conan aka Khal Drogo against Supes and Bats? They don't have a chance! But seriously I hope he's the Martian Manhunter, because then we will see him in more than one movie.

would be a perfect lobo stachure wise

Ok, superhero flicks follow the 3 step system. Step one in the first film deal with powers face a great threat, step two in the second film is the hero's journey where our hero faces a greater threat and comes to grips with who they are as a hero and three and even bigger threat and comes to grip with who they are as a man (or woman). Is Bat man vs Superman just Bat man psychologically testing superman by sending him to meet other heroes in the D CU? That could be great. Could also really suck. In any case Momoa would be a pretty great Manhunt from Mars and an equally great Darkseid, although I think Darkseid is too soon in the series.

It would be a shock as well! Not got high hopes after watching Man of Steel this weekend

I actually liked it my self! I've never been a superman comic book fan I found him unrelatable - this movie changed my opinions on him - there was no "jesus" scene he just fell backwards like Ive seen a thousand bungie jumpers, and **spolier** the death scene was an impossible situation he was forced into. It wasn't perfect but it would get an 8.5 out of 10 from me

Please be Martian Manhunter, he would be great for that role

Love to see Momoa play Doomsday. Martian Manhunter, not so much. I mean, I love the idea of a movie solely with Batman going up against Supes, but the inclusion of Wonder Woman and Flash just bores me a little, mostly because I don't really rate them as decent superheroes. Plus the Justice League has always been the least interesting part of the DC universe to me.

That said, Man of Steel was great, and I have every confidence Zack Snyder and David Goyer can pull it off.

Man of Steel was a solid movie. It will always be compared to The Avengers which is unfair since The Avengers was maybe the greatest superhero movie ever. But having extra comic book movies is always a plus and they are putting a lot of money and some really good talent into making them. This movie may not live up to The Avengers 2, but it will certainly be worth the money at the theater.
Lighten Up.

didnt sit well with me but its the joy of opinions, will see the next film anyway he he

This film is getting well out of hand now. The only reason Batman was announced in MoS2 was because they feared getting an ass whooping off Avengers: Age of Ultron.

MoS2 is turning into a Carry On film. Why just not chuck Bananaman into the mix while their at it.

Way to go mods. You keep deleting my comments

Could DC be cockin up this film anymore? It took Marvel a decade to build the World around the Avengers. They didn't just throw a load of characters and hope like it looks like DC are doing...

It'd be hilarious if he was Lex Luthor.

that's true! can I ask what it was that left you unsatisfied?

Avengers also had the benefit of five prequels coming before it...so some of the hard work was already done.

Momoa was the best Conan ever period, he would kill in either role for the next m.o.s.

People just love to bitch and moan for some reason.

I found the lack of depth to the characters left no emotional attachment qwith me so I didnt care about them. The destruction of Krypton was a bit choppy, so advanced yet unable to respond to a giant natural disaster, Crow I enjoyed throughout though. I was bored of watching superman get punched through buildings and costners appaling death scene was toe curlingly ban from a script and cgi view. Didnt help that I saw Thor the dark world the same week, although it was ridiculous if you break it down I really enjoyed it.
Did like Zods battle suit, looked awesome! And was gutted there was no Kneel Before Zod line :)

Superman dong a Sid James laugh everytime Wonder Woman bends over, id pay to see that!

well thats at least different from what most peoples arguments were which I though were a bit silly. My only hang up was prob that Zod could have been a bit more evil

True, Stamp, a pasty, thin balding english guy was far more powerful as Zod

Maybe everyone is getting worried for nothing? nobody knows how much of a part these supporting roles will play even Batman, this might just be a man of steel 2 , superman gets defeated by doomsday and these other heroes step up to save him, introducing themselves for their own films and back stories later on.

Think once you get a glimpse of wonder woman, the flash ect towards the end of this film you will want to go and see their individual films 10 times more, just like marvels strategy but in reverse, we will then got a proper justice league film later on.
