Game Of Thrones star Jason Momoa has been handed the role of Aquaman in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, according to reports.
According to HitFix, Momoa has been cast as Aquaman, though the studio and Momoa have yet to confirm his role.
Momoa’s role has been widely speculated as Aquaman for months, though the context of the character’s appearance remained unclear. Warner Bros. is using “Dawn of Justice” as a launchpad for its upcoming Justice League movie, and the studio plans to set the stage by introducing Aquaman to audiences in Batman v Superman.
Aquaman will reportedly be upset about what the World Engine in Man of Steel did to the Indian Ocean, so he’ll be thirsty for revenge of some kind.
