Jason Momoa Officially Hooks Aquaman Role


Warner Brothers has announced that the role of Aquaman in their Batman v. Superman motion picture is being filled by Game of Thrones actor, Jason Momoa.

Momoa, long rumored to have the part, remained coy about the casting during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, although it’s now been made official in Variety. Momoa joins fellow heroes Henry Cavill (Kal El), Ben Affleck (Batman), and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) in an increasingly large number of cast members including Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, and Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane are reprising their roles from Man of Steel. 

The role of Aquaman was much anticipated, since it may prove an important role for The Justice League. Aquaman first appeared in DC Comics in 1941, and is a founding member of The Justice League. The current plan for DC Comics movies will have Warner Brothers shooting a Justice League film following the conclusion of Batman v. Superman. Screenwriter Chris Terrio has been tapped to write the script for Justice League, with Zach Snyder returning to direct.

How much Aquaman (or Arthur) appears in the film is yet to be disclosed, but if the actual story is anything like the “fake” script that made the rounds earlier this summer, he should only have what would amount to an extended cameo as a setup for events in the sequel.
