Jason Momoa Still Won’t Confirm Aquaman, But He’s Ready to Play a Superhero

It’s all but officially announced that Jason Momoa will play Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Still, the veteran of Conan the Barbarian and Game of Thrones won’t confirm his involvement in the upcoming Warner Bros. film, even if he has plenty of thoughts on the superhero genre.

During an appearance over the weekend at Evolution Expo in Oakland, California, Momoa was asked whether he would ever seriously consider playing a superhero. While he didn’t drop the “A-bomb,” the actor made it clear he’s thought a lot about what it takes to bring a superhero to life.

Here’s what he had to say, according to Points of Geek:

“I think it would be really, really fun to play a superhero. You know? I’ve always talked about, like, what’s your favorite. I mean I love Lobo so… but ah… You know. It would be awesome. I don’t know how they do it but… Yea, absolutely I think it would…I just don’t really see myself as a superhero. Yeah, no I mean, they’re kind of written a little different. I don’t know. I just… you know. I’m not wearing a lot of the…I don’t see myself in tights a lot. And ah…I’m more of a, I don’t know, an anti-hero if you will. In life. So, not the smiling, parading to saving the world kind of guy. Yeah, the Hulk would have been fun!”

Momoa will likely get his shot at superhero stardom when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on May 6, 2016.

    His comments make it quite clear that this thing is just a rumor…

    Let’s just wait until SDCC. Maybe Warner doesn’t him to “officially” say “I’m Aquaman”. Maybe it’s part of a big on stage reveal with all the actors, who knows? But I think it really wouldn’t be a surprise to us to hear he will be playing Arthur Curry, but like I said maybe the studio wants him not to say anything and wait.

  • Robert Smith

    He would make a far better Lobo than Aquaman, and “BvS” does need and actual villian.

  • Crimsonrain

    I heard a rumor that the villain is going to be Dan DiDio. It was a tossup between him and Darksied as to who would be more evil. DD won.

  • Russ

    I’ve been writing my own fan film script on a Lobo movie, and ever since I started it I imagined this guy playing Lobo. He’s perfect for it. His latest movie, which he directed, was Road to Paloma, where he plays a biker dude, and he absolutely suits the role. Stick him on a Spacehog, big ass space guns, and put a hook and chain in his hand and the guys is Lobo. It’s a perfect casting.

    is he retarded?

    “…but ah… You know, Yeah, no I mean, I don’t know. I just… you know. And ah…I’m more of a, I don’t know…”

    The dude’s freakin playing Aquaman.

    Game of Thrones Actor is Aquaman

    by Doctor Aquaman • June 26, 2014 • 0 Comments

    So, Aquaman is going to be in the Batman V Superman: Dawn of
    Justice movie, and he’ll be played by Jason Momoa (known to Game of
    Thrones fans as Khal Drogo).

    It may surprise readers to know that Aquaman is a character near and dear to my heart, and I think this is good news.

    Aquaman has always been a victim of bad press, though this is part of
    his charm. There are thousands of jokes about how lame Aquaman is, and
    there may even be a song or two out there about it.

    But, for us fans of Aquaman, this only makes him more relatable.
    After all, how many of us would like to be taken more seriously? But
    hell, Aquaman just doesn’t care. He’s not like say, Submariner, who is so insecure that he needs to wear tiny speedos and throws hissy fits resulting in his invading New York once a month.

    No, Aquaman just smiles at the jokes and realizes one simple fact: He is the King of The Seven seas. That pretty much makes him the most powerful political leader on the planet.

    Also he has a hot wife named Mera who looks kind of like Daenerys Stormborn. Only with redhair.

    If he is lame, what does that make you?

    By making Jason Momoa Aquaman, he becomes someone the naysayers would
    like to make fun of, but, even if you put the orange and green costume
    on him, he still looks better than you do in your cosplay Predator
    costume.

    And, if you’re really nice to him, maybe he’ll give you a golden crown.

    that would be cool! After the trashing Aquaman got on The Big Bang Theory, it would take someone like Jason Momoa to bring him some coolness, cred, and a decent amount of dark
