There are a few movies that are rumored but we don’t have any release information on:
Justice League Dark
Untitled Superman Movie
Untitled Batman Movie
The current rumor going around is that Jason Momoa has been cast as Aquaman for the upcoming Justice League movie. There is also a rumor going around that he will have a small cameo in the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Aquaman is supposed to be upset about the damage the World Engine did to the waters of the world in Man of Steel.
Jasmon Momoa is widely known to fans as Khal Drogo from Season 1 of Game of Thrones. Then Momoa went on to play Conan in the Barbarian in the Conan remake.
I will say this I like Momoa as an actor, he made me love the character of Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones. I am excited to hear that he might be in the Justice League movie. The only thing I am skeptical on is him being Aquaman. An earlier rumor had him possibly being casted as Doomsday, which I definitely could have seen. I think Momoa would have been great in that role. If I had to pick from the Justice League crew, I would think more Green Arrow or maybe Green Lantern, I am just not seeing him as Aquaman. I just do not see Momoa looking good as a blond.
I will admit Aquaman is not my favorite Justice League character so that might play into it. With that being said, I think he is a great addition to the cast and that he will do well in the role. Maybe with Momoa playing Aquaman they will be able to show more of Aquaman’s badass side. Aquaman is not the useless character they make him out to be, Aquaman can actually do a lot. Most incantation only show Aquaman’s aquatic abilities they rarely show that he can communicate telepathically with humans. Not to mention he has enhanced senses and a few superhuman abilities. I am just hoping with Momoa in the role they will show more of Aquaman can do.
If Aquaman is supposed to make an appearance in Dawn of Justice then that explains why they have casted him now. Since there are conflicting stories about that it is unsure if he will have a cameo in the movie. Otherwise we will not being seeing him until the Justice League movie, then I would have to question why they are casting for that movie now while they are filming another one. I would be really be focused Dawn of Justice right now and not worry about the Justice League movie but Warner Brothers really wants to make the Justice League movie.
What do you think of the possible rumor that Jason Momoa will be playing Aquaman?
Warner Brothers has released the official title to the Man of Steel sequel, the film fans have been calling Batman vs Superman. The official title is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This does confirm the that movie will be a Batman against Superman. Not sure how Wonder Woman is supposed to fit into this, but maybe she stops the fight.
This movie will serve as the prequel to Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Justice League which is anticipated to be released in 2018.
Well we all knew they were trying to lead up to a Justice League movie, but I am not sure this is the proper way to go. The title Dawn of Justice does give us some idea of where they might be going with the movie. With any luck it will emphasis the different approaches that Batman and Superman have when it comes to justice. The end of the movie should highlight the similarities that they have when it comes to justice which would explain the creation of the Justice League. Since the movie is only showcasing a Superman villain as far as we know, Bruce Wayne is probably going to have some business dealings with Lex Luthor. Since we all know Luthor is shady, it would not be surprising to see Batman investigate Luthor and thus run into Superman. Doing it that way would be a great way to highlight the differences between Batman and Superman. I guess we are just going to have to wait and see.
What are your speculations about the movie?
