Here’s the updated status of the rumors that made the rounds in the entertainment world last month.
Jason Momoa is Aquaman and is getting his own movie
News outlets are widely reporting that Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa has landed the role of the hero Aquaman in Zach Snyder’s upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, though Warner Bros. has yet to confirm that role. Earlier in August, The Hollywood Reporter also said that Warner Bros. is planning a stand-alone Aquaman movie as one of the nine as-yet-untitled movies based on DC comics the studio has promised between 2016 and 2020. The publication said that in order to get the ball rolling on the project more quickly, Warner has hired two different writers to pen two different scripts, and the studio will then choose which one it wants to develop.
Status: Half-confirmed. Warner Bros. has registered the domain name of AquamanMovie.com, confirming plans for a stand-alone film about the hero. As for Momoa, it’s still uncertain if he’s going to be Aquaman. Speaking to The Oregonian, Momoa said “I have no idea” when asked about the role.
