Jason Momoa Addresses Those BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Rumors
Around the time Gal Gadot was announced as Wonder Woman for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, which we’re still calling Batman vs. Superman, there was a rumor circulating that Game of Thrones and Conan The Barbarian actor Jason Momoa was being looked at for an unspecified role. The internet jumped on it and started throwing around possible characters he could be playing. Martian Manhunter, Doomsday, and even Aquaman (seriously) were mentioned. There was no confirmation Momoa was in talks or was even really being looked at, but IGN recently caught up with the actor and asked him about the news:
IGN just spoke to Jason Momoa about his remarkable new series for Sundance, The Red Road (stay tuned for more on that), and despite rumors, he is not in Man of Steel 2 aka Batman vs. Superman.
The actor told the site “Maybe I told someone that it would be awesome and that’s how it started. But it’s just a rumor.” So now you have to decide if Momoa is telling the truth or if he’s fibbing. The fake denial game has become commonplace in the movie realm lately, especially with comic book movies (see Khan and Talia al Ghul for example). Momoa ended up losing the role of Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy, so it’s not completely out of place to think DC might want him for something. With Dwayne Johnson saying he’s talking to Warner Bros./DC about a role, he could even be in contention for whatever Momoa may or may not have been doing. We just don’t know, but I’m sure we’ll hear something before long. What do you think? Is Momoa telling the truth or do you think he’s hiding something?
