Reports are in from Hitfix’s Drew McWeeney That Game Of Thrones Jason Momoa (Pictured Right) will play the King of Atlantis himself, Arthur Curry in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. McWeeney notes that while Warner Bros haven't officially confirmed this, Hitfix "can confirm that he will be playing the part, and that Zack Snyder has already finalized his designs for the character so shooting can take place soon.”
Rumors began last year that Momoa would play the role of Aquaman, but denied them. During an interview in January with IGN’s Roth Cornet, Momoa said "It's just rumors. I want to say something amazing, but I can't comment on rumors. It's flattering.”
Its possible while at the time of this interview Momoa was still in the negotiation stage and not surprisingly would have been told to keep his lips sealed. However McWeeney who is a trusted source, now says Momoa’s involvement with the film is now a done deal.
Hitfix goes on to say they also know what Aquaman’s role will be in the film. Noting it will be linked to the mass destruction that happened in Man of Steel. If you want to know how then click here to find out.

Hot off the press today from Warner Bros, big news has dropped that Batman vs Superman now has an official title.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
This new comes just days after Warner Bros released the first official image from the set, showing (finally!) an image of Ben Affleck as Batman standing in front of the new Bat-mobile.
With the release of the film still a fair bit away however I can't help but feel this news, along with the other various casting announcements has been released far too early.
Looks like its back to reading comics for the mean time. I’m sure we will see a trailer soon. Right……?
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is released in theatres on May 6th 2016 and supports a cast of familiar faces such as Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane reprising their original roles from Man Of Steel along with new ones such as Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman and Ray Fisher as Cyborg.
While we’re on the subject, Rocksteady released the first gameplay trailer for Arkham Knight today also. Boy does it look pretty!
