According to Warner Bros. sources who spoke to both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, the mountainous Jason Momoa is in talks to join the upcoming Man Of Steel 2: Fear Of A Black Planet, in an as-yet-unspecified role. The most rampant speculation is that the Game Of Thrones and Conan star will be playing the formidable supervillain Doomsday—though this may just be wishful thinking, on the part of those who’d like to see Zack Snyder’s Superman die. However, THR also believes that the recent addition of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, along with the promise that The Flash will also be horning in on Batman and Superman’s quality time, suggests Momoa could also be in the running for one of the other members of the Justice League, particularly Martian Manhunter. “Momoa, with his muscular physique, could be a fit for either character,” THR writes, barely containing itself. Perhaps it’s also possible that Warner Bros. is making good on recent promises to rescue Aquaman from being a laughing stock, as no one’s gonna laugh at Aquaman if he looks like Jason Momoa.
