Jason Mamoa is rumoured to be starring as Aquaman in the forthcoming 'Batman v Superman' film, although his rep has declined to comment.
It’s being reported that Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa will play Aqua Man in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League films.
Mamoa is best known for playing Dothraki warlord in HBO's show Game of Thrones
34-year-old Momoa is best known for his role as Dothraki warrior king Khal Drogo in HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones. Huffington Post is now reporting that the Hawaiian actor will be taking up the role of Aquaman in the Man of Steel sequel.
Although rumours are stronger than ever (and coming thicker and faster than before), Mamoa had vigorously denied back in May that he was going to play Aquaman. He told a reporter: “What does everything tell you? No. Stop asking me. It’s so annoying. Sorry, you’re not annoying.”
He later added: “You know what, I think [the rumours] started when people said ‘What superhero would you play?’ And I’d say Batman and Superman, they'd be awesome together. Then people were like, ‘He’s in Batman v Superman!’…And then some a**hole was like, ‘He’s Aquaman!’…And then it shows up on the internet. Not that it’s a bad rumour.”
Mamoa has denied rumours that he will play Aquaman in Batman v Superman, dismissing them as "annoying"
Despite Mamoa’s adament denials, HitFlix are confirming that the actor will play Aquaman, although no official announcement has been made by Warner Bros, the production company who are making the movie. The site is also reporting that Zack Snyder, who is set to direct the movie, had finished designing his plan for the character. Mamoa’s rep has declined to comment.
Batman v Superman is scheduled for release May 6, 2016.
The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The actress will no doubt be returning for the long-running FX series.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
