Jason Momoa to play Aquaman in 'Batman v Superman' and 'Justice League'

The cast list for the upcoming superhero extravaganza Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is only continuing to grow. Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Diane Lane are reprising their roles from Man of Steel, Ben Affleck is playing Batman, Jesse Eisenberg is tackling Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons is our new Alfred, Emily Blunt is rumored to be playing Catwoman and Gal Gadot and Ray Fisher will have small roles as Wonder Woman and Cyborg, respectively. Now, according to Hitfix, that cast just got bigger. The entertainment site is reporting that Jason Momoa will be joining the cast of Dawn of Justice as Aquaman and will reprise that role in Justice League, which according to Hollywood journalist Nikki Finke, will be hitting theaters in 2017.

According to Hitfix, they can confirm that Momoa is in the film and that Zack Snyder will be shooting his scenes very soon. In addition, they are saying that the character arc for Aquaman in Dawn of Justice involves being upset about what the World Engine did to the Indian Ocean. I really disliked Man of Steel and don't even remember what this World Engine thing was, so I honestly have no idea what they're talking about. Batman v Superman seems extremely overstuffed at this point, but I like the casting of Momoa. He seems perfect for the role. As of right now, Dawn of Justice will be hitting theaters on May 6, 2016.
