Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones) is in negotiations to join the ever-growing cast of the now misnomered Superman vs. Batman.
As of right now it is not clear who he would be playing, but rumors are swirling that he could be cast as Doomsday, the monster that killed Superman back in the 90’s (don’t worry, Superman returned and brought long hair with him). Personally, I think the inclusion of Doomsday might be a little premature since he is one of Superman’s most powerful enemies. Why use him at the start of a blossoming Justice League franchise? That would be like using Parallax in the first Green Lantern film… wait…
Another rumor is that he could possibly be cast as the J’onn J’onnz, the Martian Manhunter. If the intention is to turn Man of Steel 2 into Justice League 1 then I think this would be a much better choice, especially when you consider Momoa’s physique and overbearing brow.
What do you think of the choice and the direction of the film in general? I know some of us here at 4LN are worried that they are adding too many characters and turning this into the Justice League movie too early.
