Rumor: Jason Momoa Up For AQUAMAN?
Here’s a new rumor for Batman vs. Superman, it’s being speculated that Jason Momoa‘s rumored role in the film is actually for Arthur “Aquaman” Curry. It’s a rumor that has been thrown around a few times before, but now it has gotten some legs. Badass Digest added what they had heard when they reported the earlier rumors from today that Batman vs. Superman and the Justice League movie would film back-to-back. Said the site about the alleged marathon filming session:
This makes a lot of sense and puts a lot of things into perspective. It definitely helps us understand why there are so many character names being thrown around for Batman vs Superman. I was recently told by a very, very trusted source that the role Jason Momoa was up for (but is currently denying) is definitely Aquaman, but it’s essentially a cameo setting up the next movie. Momoa’s denials today could just be a smokescreen intended to protect the surprise nature of the cameo, although if the films are shooting back-to-back we’ll know soon enough.
This wouldn’t be an entirely crazy rumor. Zack Snyder does like his big, burly men when it comes to action stars, and you can’t get much bigger than Momoa. Dwayne Johnson is bigger, but he’s talking to DC as well so we won’t count that one. The actor would also make it harder to joke about Aquaman. If you saw Momoa coming out of the sea on the big screen, the last thing you’re going to do is laugh. The bearded Aquaman with a hook hand might be an interesting route to go if indeed Momoa is in talks or even being considered for a role in Batman vs. Superman and/or the eventual Justice League film. The actor said he didn’t know anything about those rumors for Batman vs. Superman, but someone might get a different answer if they asked him about the Justice League. And let’s not forget Momoa was in Stargate: Atlantis and Baywatch Hawaii, so he has some experience in that area. What do you think? Would you buy Momoa as Aquaman or do you think this is one of WB‘s misinformation tactics?
