Add another “Justice League” character to the “Batman V Superman” movie.
Hitfix is reporting Aquaman will indeed appear in the upcoming “Man of Steel” sequel.
No, he won’t be played by Matt Damon.
Though he has denied it in the past, former “Game of Thrones” actor Jason Momoa will reportedly play the King of the Seven Seas.
Momoa played Khal Drogo on the HBO series.
Similarly, Hitfix says Aquaman’s role will be brief and limited.
“What we’re hearing is that he [Aquaman] is not pleased about the World Engine and what it did to the Indian Ocean.”
This makes a lot of sense.
One thing that didn’t sit well with a lot of “Man of Steel” viewers was all of the raw, unnecessary destruction Superman caused.
Not only did he tear apart Metropolis, endangering the lives of many citizens, eagle-eyed viewers know he did damage to LexCorp and Wayne Enterprises properties. He also saved people from an exploding oil rig, whose CEO has ties to Aquaman.
Lex Luthor, Batman, and Aquaman may all have a few bones of their own to pick with him.
“Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” is set for a May 6, 2016 release.
