Jason Momoa has good reason to be super stoked! James Wan has an impressive track record, with his previous film Furious 7 grossing $349 million in the states and $1.5 billion worldwide to become the second highest grossing movie of 2015 behind Avengers: Age of Ultron. His first The Conjuring movie pulled in $137 million off a $20 million budget. And he is responsible for co-creating the Saw franchise as well as Insidious. Will he be able to bring the same type of box office glory to Aquaman, helping to create a DC Movie Universe that rivals Marvel? Maybe.
James Wan is currently working on a sequel to The Conjuring, with The Conjuring 2 shooting for New Line this summer. After Aquaman, he will move onto Robotech for Sony. It's very unlikely that he will direct another film in the Fast & Furious franchise, but you never know. How about you? Are you as super stoked as Jason Momoa that James Wan is taking on this DC adventure, or did you have someone else in mind for the King of the Seven Seas?Read More
Aquaman star Jason Momoa is in talks to join the star-studded cast of MGM's The Magnificent Seven. If a deal is finalized, the actor will play one of "the main heavies." He will not be playing the primary villain, described as a "robber baron, who has yet to be cast. Byung-hun Lee has also signed on to star as a character named Billy Rocks, but no further details were given. The project is a remake of the 1960 Western of the same name, which itself was a loose remake of Akira Kurosawa's 1954 classic Seven Samurai.
Jason Momoa and Byung-hun Lee join a cast that already includes Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Haley Bennett, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Luke Grimes and Wagner Moura. No details have been given for any of the other cast members' characters at this time. The story centers on a young woman (Haley Bennett), who hires seven gunslingers to protect her small town from a group of treacherous bandits. Director John Huston's original classic The Magnificent Seven starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, James Coburn and Horst Buchholz as the seven gunmen, with Eli Wallach portraying the villainous Calvera.Read More

Aquaman doesn't have a screenwriter or a director confirmed at this time, but Jason Momoa has said in the past that he wants Zack Snyder to direct. Since Zack Snyder is directing both Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, it might be a tall order to try and squeeze in Aquaman before those movies. While we wait for any official details on Aquaman, take a look at Jason Momoa's video interview below.

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jason Momoa seems to back up reports that his Aquaman is not featured in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice too much. He hasn't shot any action scenes, teasing that its Clark and Bruce's movie, not his. He goes onto talk about his solo movie, Justice League Part 1, and what it was like to see Aquaman revealed for the first time, which came earlier than expected.
What do you think? Is Jason Momoa in the process of creating the greatest interpretation of Aquaman DC Comics has every seen? Or is it too still early to comment?Read More
Interrupting a lot of people's sleep this past week, director Zack Snyder created quite a lot of Internet buzz by officially revealing Jason Momoa as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While the entire costume has been picked apart at this point, with the true meaning behind his armor, weapon and tattoos analyzed beyond the breaking point, the movie's costume designer Michael Wilkinson has come forward to talk about his design and what it means for this iconic character.
Jason Momoa will make his big screen debut as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, though it is rumored that he only has two scenes which amount to nothing more than a glorified cameo. While a solo Aquaman movie is planned for 2018, the character will also appear in 2017's Justice League Part 1 and 2019's Justice League Part 2. Now that you've had some time to think on it, what are your thoughts on Aquaman's new surfer look?Read More
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder sent out the first official poster last night featuring Jason Momoa as Aquaman, but, as we pointed out earlier today, the most intriguing aspect of the one-sheet is the tagline "Unite the Seven." The two most prevalent theories are that the tagline refers to "The Seven Seas," which Aquaman rules over, or the seven members of the Justice League, Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Green Lantern (who has yet to be cast) and of course Aquaman himself. While we'll have to wait and see what Unite the Seven truly means, Badass Digest has a new piece of info that offers some insight into Aquaman's role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which claims he only has a glorified cameo.
The site reports that, in the shooting script, Aquaman only shows up two times, during a survey of metahumans conducted by Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) and at the very end, when Batman recruits him to join the Justice League. The site claims that, if this tagline refers to Aquaman uniting the Seven Seas, it will likely happen in the standalone Aquaman movie, since there is no room for this plot in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It is possible that different story elements were added into the script as shooting progressed, meaning Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice could help set up Aquaman's story about uniting the seven undersea kingdoms, but it likely won't be fleshed out entirely until the standalone Aquaman movie.Read More
