Jason Momoa may join ‘Batman vs Superman’
Will Jason Momoa get the same harsh treatment from fanboys as Ben Affleck did?
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the “Game of Thrones” star, who played Khal Drogo on the first season of the hit HBO fantasy, is in talks to join the cast of “Batman vs. Superman,” which is fast shaping up to be a sort of “Love Actually” of superheroes, at least in terms of cast size.
“Batman vs. Superman” stars Ben Affleck as Batman, I must inform you in case you just joined the Internet today. Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman and Israeli newcomer Gal Godot will play Wonder Woman. The production hasn’t announced what role Momoa would play in the film, though fans speculate he may be coming onboard to play a villain, possibly Doomsday, who killed Superman (for a while) in the comics in 1992, or the Martian Manhunter.
Hopefully Momoa will get a kinder reception from fans than Affleck. After the “Argo” star won the role of the bat, the nerdosphere’s collective head blew off.
“Oh man, I hope the next movie’s gonna be ‘Batman vs. Daredevil’! All Affleck all the time!!!” tweeted Weird Al.
“Really looking forward to seeing Affleck bring the depth and gravitas to Batman that he brought to Daredevil and Gigli,” said actor and professional geek Wil Wheaton.
