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.
