Josh Holloway Weighs In On The BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Rumors
There were rumors floating around that Jason Momoa was in talks to be Aquaman in Batman vs. Superman in the now delayed Man of Steel sequel from Zack Snyder. The Game of Thrones actor said they weren’t true but he would definitely be interested in the role if anyone wanted to really talk to him about it. Another actor rumored to appear in Batman vs. Superman in an unspecified role, though Aquaman and Flash were thrown around, was Lost alum Josh Holloway. He has weighed in on the recent round of rumors as well.
In an interview with IGN about his new show Intelligence, Holloway was asked if there was any truth to him being considered for the role of Aquaman. The actor said he has indeed heard those rumblings online, but he hadn’t heard it was for a specific character until now. He says “It hasn’t been brought to my attention by my people so maybe they’re just floating it softly around, but that would be cool!. Sure, I think I’m available at the moment as we just wrapped up. I’m an actor, I like different roles. Batman movies are awesome, Marvel movies are awesome. But we’ll see, I’m on a series right now. I think they usually want to sign you up for several movies and I don’t know if you can do that when you’re committed to a series.”
So while he hasn’t heard anything about it other than reading it online, the actor wouldn’t turn the role down if he could make the schedules work. Intelligence has proven to be a big hit so it seems like he’ll be locked in for a good while with that. Momoa and Holloway might have to duke it out to see who is the true king of the seas. What do you think about Holloway‘s comments? Would you like to see him join a comic book movie?
