Jason Momoa In talks For Batman-Superman
But playing which character?

Jason Momoa, Bullet To The Head

We still don’t know the actual title of the film yet, but we do know who might be popping up in some capacity. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Conan’s Jason Momoa is in negotiations to star in the Man Of Steel follow-up, which will find Henry Cavill’s Superman sharing the screen with Ben Affleck’s Batman.

Who's Momoa playing? Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder are playing coy on that front, though given his frame, the trade mag is already speculating that he could possibly show up as Kryptonian death bringer Doomsday (a famous nemesis of Supes who actually managed to kill Kal-El, however briefly, in the comics) or Martian Manhunter, a fellow Justice League member.

Given the recent addition of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and persistent rumours that Nightwing will appear in some capacity (a role that Momoa's probably too physically big to play), it appears Warners is quietly putting a Justice League film in place, so Momoa may end up being a hero instead of a villain.

The actor, also known for his work as Khal Drago on the first season of Game Of Thrones, most recently showed up in Bullet To The Head. He’ll next be seen in David Hayter’s Wolves, sci-fi thriller Debug and in Road To Paloma, his directorial debut.

The Batman/Superman mash-up, whatever it ends up being called, will be out on July 17, 2015.

Martian Manhunter!

Re:
I'm really rooting for him. He's good in Conan and that fucking film is not his fault. He was fun with Stallone in Bullet in the Head too, and GOT as Simon124 says. I like him. I hope this does well for him. More
