Confirmed: Jason Momoa Will Play Aquaman In BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
Late last week, it was reported that Jason Momoa had officially joined the cast of the upcoming Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice as the King of Atlantis, Aquaman. In the initial report, which you can read HERE, the details of how he would be integrated into the story were suggested. While we don’t have confirmation on that, we do have confirmation coming from THR that Momoa will indeed be filling the role of Aquaman.
The trade, which initially broke the story last winter, didn’t have too many details on the role, but just offered the confirmation. In the previous report, we learned that the Aquaman role would only be a small part in this film, and will serve as an introduction to the character. Momoa will be joining Henry Cavil (Superman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) in the highly anticipated sequel that will serve as a lead in to the team-up film that is the Justice League. Laurence Fishburne, Holly Hunter, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons and Diane Lane will also be starring. It is expected that The Flash and Green Lantern will also be making an appearance, but with this many characters currently being introduced, it’s possible that these two may be revealed in the Justice League film. To remind you, a potential filming schedule for WB and DC revealed that the studio has plans for several solo films, including a Flash/Green Lantern team-up flick.
Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently filming and is slated for a May 2016 release. This film will be shot back-to-back with the planned Justice League project, which will also be directed by Zack Snyder.
