Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa to Join Batman and Superman Movie?
For any Game of Thronesfans who've wanted to see how the beastly Khal Drogo would size up against the likes of Batman or Superman, you may get your wish. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Jason Momoa, who portrayed the Khal on GoT, is currently in talks to join Warner Bros.’ as-yet-untitled superhero mashup sequel to Man of Steel, which is commonly referred to by its fan-given moniker, Batman vs. Superman.
No word yet on what character Momoa is in talks to play, but given that the movie already features Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, and Gal Godot as Wonder Woman, we’re thinking that there are enough heroes in play. The film would probably benefit from casting Jason as the big baddie, whoever that may be.
Jason is no stranger to comic book adaptations, having starred as the title character in 2011’s Conan the Barbarian, so hopefully he and Warner Bros. can reach a deal. We’d love to see him in the film, presumably mopping the floor with the best the DC universe has to offer.
The new film will be directed by Zack Snyder, who returns after directing Cavill in last summer’s Man of Steel, and is scheduled to be released July 17, 2015.
