Jason Momoa Looking To Join BATMAN VS SUPERMAN; But As Friend Or Foe?
Well now, it would appear as if the Batman Vs Superman castings are revving up! The movie is expected to start filming in February, with a number of filming locations from Man Of Steel confirmed to be revisited. However, the film has been busy making the casting announcements. Just last week we learned that Gal Gadot would be playing Wonder Woman, as well as rumors that The Flash might be showing up as well.
Now we have a new (almost) casting. According to The Hollywood Reporter actor Jason Mamoa, of Conan The Barbarian fame, is in talks to join the cast of the highly anticipated sequel. The role is being kept under lock and key. THR speculates that it COULD be Doomsday, since the character has been rumored to be one of the bad guys in the film. Another possibility, which makes a lot more sense, that they hear is that Mamoa could be actually be cast as J’onn J’onzz AKA The Martian Manhunter.
While the casting information is legit, what should be in question here is the character in which he will be playing. The Hollywood Reporter is a legit source. However, since they weren’t able to nail it down, it’s best to keep an open mind about who it could be. Last superhero role Mamoa was circling was Drax in Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy. However, he lost out to Dave Bautista due to him possibly wanting too much money. While we aren’t sure what character he will be playing, one thing is for sure this is sounding less and less like a Superman sequel and more and more like a Justice League movie.
