What Jason Momoa Will Be Mad About When He Shows Up As Aquaman In The DC Movieverse

jason momoaThe movie news cycle is broken, especially in respect of big studio tentpoles, comic book adaptations and other eagerly anticipated genre movies. We see the same pattern repeated all too often.

Somebody will report involvement of a certain actor with a certain role. That actor will then get asked about that role and they’ll say how flattered they are for the association. This will get reported as a “Not so soon!” story. Then that actor will then get asked about that role and they’ll say how flattered they are for the association. This will get reported as a “Not so soon!” story. Then that actor will then get asked about that role and they’ll say how flattered they are for the association. This will get reported as a “Not so soon!” story…

Then my head will start to leak.

In the case of Jason Momoa, he absolutely put his foot down and said that he was sick of being asked about playing Aquaman in Warner Bros. upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. Momoa wanted to make it very clear that he would not be in the film.

His comments launched three hundred blog posts. Was it the end of the story? Of course not, though admittedly because he seems to have been lying.

Now HitFix, who won’t be doing this casually, say that Momoa does indeed have the role. Unless Momoa really does bail or get sacked, this report should end it. It probably won’t.

More interesting, however, isn’t that Momoa is in, it’s how the character has been conceived. From Drew’s story:

Someone else who’s not particularly happy about what happened in that film [Man of Steel] is Aquaman. I’m not sure if that’s the actual name they’ll use or not, but what we’re hearing is that he is not pleased about the World Engine and what it did to the Indian Ocean. He will not have a major role in the film, but he will make an appearance, and it definitely sets him up to return.

There. Pretty much as expected.

Maybe that just squeezed the surprise out of a little cameo. It was worth it just to silence the spinning wheel, I think.
