"Deadpool" Sequel in Motion, Screenwriters to Return
You can add Batman Vs. Superman to the list of comic book movies Jason Momoa won’t star in. The Conan, Game of Thrones and Bullet to the Head actor, who was also rumored to play Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy not long ago, told IGN he’s not in the Man of Steel sequel.
Reports sprang up in December that Momoa would play a part in the Zack Snyder film, potentially that of Superman killer Doomsday or even Justice Leaguer Martian Manhunter.
“It’s just rumors,” Momoa told the site. “I want to say something amazing, but I can’t comment on rumors. It’s flattering.” He added, “I’m not involved in it.”
While he hasn’t debuted in a superhero franchise just yet, Momoa is spreading his wings by starring in the Sundance series The Red Road. He’ll also make his directorial debut with The Road to Paloma.
Opening July 17, 2015, the Man of Steel sequel stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams and Gal Gadot.
