There have been some rumors flying around about this little casting choice since December, though, naturally, no one would admit a damn thing. Now, it’s finally been confirmed. Aquaman shall be appearing (however briefly) in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice flick and he shall be played by none-other-than the former Conan and Khal Drogo, Jason Momoa.
Of course, this is yet another “insider leak”, so the official-official announcement has yet to be made. But given the reliability of the source, we can almost certainly expect Momoa to be confirmed sometime in the near future (especially now that it’s all over the damned Internet).
According to the source, Aquaman shall be coming to Batman v Superman due to the events of Man of Steel. When the World Engine messed up the Indian Ocean, Aquaman got a bit ticked off. Thus, he’ll have some words to share with Superman. It has also been reported that Aquaman’s character designs are almost done, so we might even get a look at the Aqua-costume come San Diego Comic Con.
What do the Nerd Readers think? Can Momoa pull off the Aquaman role? Is the cast for BvS getting even more interesting and intriguing?
