Jason Momoa claims nobody will be laughing after seeing him play Aquaman in the upcoming film, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Momoa was at a fan expo in Canada over the weekend when he was asked how he feels about Aquaman being the constant butt of superhero jokes. His response implies we’re not going to see a ‘fish man’ but something very different and much deadlier.

Director Zack Synder did not despair when the exclusive trailer of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was leaked online on Thursday. The grainy footage, shot on a mobile phone camera, immediately went viral and certainly did not do justice to the true version.

Henry Cavill as Superman in 'Man of Steel'
Zack Snyder will pilot the project, which kicks off an important period for Warner Bros in the Superhero space. Marvel’s dominance of the genre is plain to see, with The Avengers breaking box office records and finding itself in illustrious, billion-dollar company amongst the all time box office grossers list.

The actor's wife, Jennifer Garner, promised that we'll all be blown away by the re-imagining of the Batsuit for the upcoming movie
Ben Affleck will become the latest actor to portray Batman when he appears in the sequel to last year's Superman blockbuster Man of Steel. Ahead of his appearance as the Caped Crusader, Affleck's wife Jennifer Garner has revealed that she has already had a glimpse at the Batsuit her husband will be sporting in the 2016 sequel, calling it "unbelievably cool" and a "total reinvention" of the famous outfit.
Affleck and Garner previously appeared together in spandex for Daredevil
"I don't think I could get him out of the suit," Garner told Entertainment Tonight recently, joking that her husband has been put on lockdown so he can't wear the suit all of the time. She continued, "I've seen the suit. It's unbelievably cool. It's a total reinvention, it looks great."
Jason Momoa in talks to star in the 'Superman Vs Batman' movie as Doomsday or Martian Manhunter.
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'.
Warner Bros. either really want to piss off comic book fans, or Justin Bieber isn't actually going to be in the next 'Man of Steel'
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.
