    While Jason Momoa was cast in Zack Snyder's “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” several months ago, Warner Bros. refused to reveal his role in the superhero movie.

    According to veteran scooper Drew McWeeny atHitFix, Momoa has been cast as Aquaman, though the studio and Momoa have yet to confirm his role.
    Momoa's role has been widely speculated as Aquaman for months, though the context of the character's appearance remained unclear. Warner Bros. is using “Dawn of Justice” as a launchpad for its upcoming “Justice League” movie, and the studio plans to set the stage by introducing
    Aquaman to audiences in “Batman v Superman.”

    Why not Thad Castle - he did a good enough job as Aquaman on Smallville.

    They are making a Blue Mountain State movie...they got fully funded through Kickstarter and got the director of super Troopers to direct.
    Can't wait to see an uncensored version of BMS.

    So Matt Damon dropped out? I really don't see Drago being able to carry that character through B v S, Justice League, Sinister Six and every other movie coming out from D.C. but then again I don't see Damon signing a six or nine movie contract with D.C.

    I completely disagree about it being a disaster if they fuck it up because they already have a gigantic mulligan going into the movie by casting Ole' ButtChin as Batman instead of waiting until Bale realized what a mistake it was to pass this film up. Look at ASM 2 and what an outright pile of shit that movie was and yet they will make SpiderMan 3 and go forward with Sinister Six.

    Why is he a bad choice? I think it's pretty good honestly. Dude has decent charisma and showed it in SG:Atlantis.

    Tom Hiddleston is a great actor - and plays a comic character VERY well - but he, like Momoa, is nothing like Aquaman, in either appearance or personality. The actors need to be somewhat true to the source if they are to be accepted by the fanbase. Imagine a black Thor or Asian Iron Man or Arabic Captain America, it just doesn't work. Sure they made Nick Fury blaek, but he was a minor character in the comics. Same as making Perry White a blaek.

    Nick Fury was anything but minor in the comics. Of course, they did this to him two weeks ago

    A black Thor or Arab Capt. America or an Asian Superman wouldn't work because so much of those characters make-up is based on the way they look but there is nothing inherent in the character of Aquaman that says he has to be a blonde blue-eyed white guy. That is why I have no problem with Human Torch being black in the upcoming movie. Torch is a good looking young poon hound who can turn into fire. That description can fit a guy if pretty much any color.

    Except his sister is white in the movie. They are both geniuses and that can't be explained away by adoption.
