According to Hitfix on Saturday, after relentless questions being asked of "Game of Thrones" Jason Momoa and him growing weary of this line of questioning, it's been confirmed he'll be in "Batman vs. Superman" as Aquaman. Though no official announcement has been made, Momoa has been confirmed by the source he'll be in the movie and Snyder has done character design finalization. That being said, this allows for the director to partake in shooting rather quickly.
For those who recall in "Man of Steel" starring Henry Cavill as Superman, Kal-El had to deal with General Zod and his military zealots in taking down the World Engine. It's a large Kryptonian device, or set of devices rather, that work on opposites ends of the planet into terraforming the Earth. Such consequences would have resulted in dramatic environmental impact and from what has been trickling down the grapevine from the sources at Hitflix is that Aquaman isn't to happy about the end results its made on the Indian Ocean.
The role won't be a big one for Momoa as he does make an appearance in Snyder's film, however this does set up a precedence for Aquaman's return for the "Justice League" movie. Back in May, it was reported that Momoa was quite plentiful with his expletives when approached repeatedly when being asked if he would be in the upcoming "Man of Steel" sequel.
“No. Stop asking me. It’s so annoying. Sorry, you’re not annoying,” he reportedly said, before noticing the questioner’s press badge. “Oh, you’re the press? Get the f**k out of here. Here, put this in there — you’re a d**k, you’re a d**k.”
Though Momoa admittedly was playing around when he made such a comment, his annoyance was rather apparent. It all started out with fans asking what superhero he'd like to portray and it snowballed from there to the internet.
At this point, "Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice" stars Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and Jessie Eisenberg as the villainous Lex Luthor. The movie is scheduled to be released come May 6, 2016.
