Jason Momoa In Talks For 'Superman Vs Batman' - Are We Looking At A Justice League Movie?


Jason Momoa Superman Batman Zack Snyder Ben Affleck Henry Cavill

More news from the upcoming 'Superman Vs Batman' movie as Jason Momoa is apparently a definite maybe to join the cast.

The 'Conan the Barbarian' star could be set to star as Martian Manhunter in the upcoming film, which currently has no official title but will serve as a sequel to this year's 'Man Of Steel'. The character is one of the superhero members of the DC comic book team, the Justice League of America so if this suggestion is true, it could throw into question an 'Avengers' style movie given that Wonder Woman will also make an appearance in the movie.

Kryptonian supervillain Doomsday from the Batman franchise is another possibility for Momoa; a character known to be the only supervillain to have ever managed to kill Superman - a storyline that appeared in the 1992 comic 'The Death of Superman'.

Has Justin Bieber Been Handed A Role In The 'Superman vs Batman' Film?


Justin Bieber Ben Affleck Batman Superman

Justin Bieber has sparked rumours/fears that he will be appearing in the upcoming sequel to this years The Man of Steel, by posting an image of himself with what appears to be a script for the film on to his Instagram page. Either he's pulling an admittedly brilliant prank on Batfans across the world, or bosses at Warner Brothers have made another infuriatingly controversial casting decision for the 'Batman vs. Superman' film.

Bieber uploaded the image to his Instagram page on Friday (13 Sept.) night with the caption "#robin??" and immediately whipped up an internet storm of angered DC fans and delighted Beliebers. Comic fanboys have been left even more outraged at the apparent appointment than they were at the announcement that Ben Affleck will be playing Batman/Bruce Wayne in the film, however the picture he uploaded at least shows some potential spoilers for what we could expect from the film.

Ben Affleck has been handed the keys to the Batmobile, picking up the torch from the excellent Christain Bale to portray Gotham’s troubled hero. At 41-years of age, the road to one of Hollywood’s most prestigious roles – made so by director Christopher Nolan and Bale – hasn’t been a smooth one for Affleck, who endured his fair share of bumps and crashes along the way.

"We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics' most enduringly popular super heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill and then some," Warner Bros President Greg Silverman said in a statement. "(Affleck) has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne," said Snyder. "I can't wait to work with him. (BBC)

Zack Snyder Ryan Gosling Josh Brolin Joe Manganiello Max Martini Matthew Goode Superman Batman

The question on every DC fans lips since director Zack Snyder announced plans for the next Superman film, which will feature Batman, is who will play the caped crusader?

The script is currently being written by David Goyer, who wrote Man of Steel. The film is due to be released in cinemas in 2015, with filming scheduled to begin next year.
