UPDATE: Will Jason Momoa Join the Cast of Batman vs. Superman?

THR's Heat Vision's sources have told them that Game of Thrones and Conan star, Jason Momoa, is in talks to join the 2015 Batman vs. Superman film in an unnamed role. The site goes on to speculate that Momoa could be set to appear as either Doomsday or J'onn J'onzz, The Martian Manhunter, though they are clear that it is just speculation.


Momoa has begun to develop as an actor and is certainly cut out for any role that would require intense physicality. With filming starting soon, we won't have to wait too long to find out exactly who he'll be playing in the film. I have a hard time seeing Momoa cast as Doomsday given the fact that I was under the assumption the studio would go mo-cap CGI for the character. I was also not operating under the assumption that DC/WB was going to use the Manhunter in their films, at least not right away, so neither of these two make sense to me...just yet! Of course, if it turns out that Momoa is playing Martian Manhunter, then we probably have ourselves that Justice League film about which I was speculating last week...




UPDATE:

Variety's source also reports that Momoa is in talk for the film; however, they are unable to give any information on the role either...so, we wait!
