Many fans still haven't recovered from the initial shock of seeing Jason Momoa as the King of Atlantis. Some thought he looked more like Rob Zombie than an underwater savior. The character will appear on screen with knotted-up dreadlocks and a series of tribal tattoos and matching armor. He definitely looks like someone you wouldn't make jokes about. At least not to his face. The original photo does have hints of gold, and perhaps a very dull green. But it's not the bright and poppy orange and green we're used to seeing. Will there be several costumes for Aquaman? That we don't know yet. But it's hard to imagine the iconic DC character lounging around in this getup while awaiting his next meeting at the Hall of Justice.
Jason Momoa is expected to make his debut appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, though that has never been confirmed by anyone directly associated with the movie. He will then next be seen in Justice League Part 1, which arrives in 2017, before moving onto his own solo adventure in 2018. He's expected to appear in Justice League Part 2 in 2019. It isn't known if he is scheduled to appear in any of the other upcoming DC Comics movies. His role in Batman v Superman is said to be a glorified cameo, and won't consist of more than two scenes.Read More
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City's own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis's most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it's ever known before. Zack Snyder directs Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from a screenplay by Chris Terrio.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth and Holly Hunter in an unspecified role.

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
