Jason Momoa will play the role of Aquaman, let that sink in, because after months of rumors multiple sources now confirm he will take on the part in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
It shouldn’t be too surprising for anyone that has been following along, Momoa has been in talks to take the role of the Aquatic hero for some time now. That is probably why Snyder himself took to the airwaves of a Detroit radio last week to defend the honor of Aquaman.
Zack Snyder’s Superman/Batman film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The film will also reunite “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane, and also stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.
Snyder will direct the film from a screenplay written by David S. Goyer, from a story co-created by Goyer and Snyder. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan and Wesley Coller serving as executive producers.
The film is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, Batman characters created by Bob Kane, and Wonder Woman created by William Moulton Marston, published by DC Entertainment.
