Jason Momoa confirmed for Aquaman in ‘Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice’

“Doomsday will wait,” says a source to The Dispatch after the news broke that Jason Momoa will indeed play Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Hitfix broke the news, confirming rumors that Conan, Game of Thrones alum would play the King of Atlantis after much deliberation and Internet rumor.

Momoa had long since been talking with Warner Bros about a role in the new film and a larger role in Justice League. Sources told The Dispatch that Josh Holloway (LOST) was the ideal candidate for Aquaman with Momoa playing the villain Doomsday who “kills” Superman.

Aquaman is rumored to be very upset over the destruction to the oceans in the wake of Superman’s battle with General Zod in Man of Steel.

Our source says Momoa was likely locked up for a role and may have had provisions to play either character as the studio attempts to lock in a cast for multiple pictures just as Marvel has done.

Henry Cavill returns as Superman with Ben Affleck set to take over the role as Batman. Gal Gadot (Furious 6) will play Wonder Woman against Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor. Also cast are Holly Hunter, Laurence Fishburne,  Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Callan Mulvey, Jeremy Irons, Tao Okamoto and TJ Norris.

Batman Vs Superman opens in theaters May 6, 2016
