We have heard several rumors that Jason is in negotiations to star in the new Superman Vs. Batman film and let’s hope it is true. Would be a wonderful role for Jason!
The film is not yet named, and there is no word of who Momoa will play. However it is rumoured to be Doomsday, the powerful and merciless villain spawned when Kryptonian genetic engineering went awry. First appearing in the 1992 comic The Death of Superman comic, he is famously the only villain to ever kill Superman, which he did by beating him to death.
There is also speculation he could play Martian Manhunter, the last survivor of the planet Mars and the “Guardian angel” of Clark Kent in Smallville. Due to his honed physique, he is said to be in the running for either character.
In the film, to be directed by American action and sci-fi specialist Zack Snyder, Momoa will be joined by a star-studded cast. British actor Henry Cavill will return as Superman, Ben Affleck will play Batman, and the Israeli supermodel Gal Godot is billed as Wonder Woman.
This isn’t the first time Momoa has been rumoured to act a comic book hero. In February it was thought he would star as Drax the Destroyer in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, however the part went to the muscle-bound Dave Bautista.
