Everyone knew Jason Momoa was Aquaman. The trades reported it, Zack Snyder talked about the character, and Momoa teased it, but no one would confirm it officially until Warner Bros. made a move. That finally happened last week, when the full DC Comics schedule was revealed. Momoa will play Aquaman in two Justice League movies and in a solo movie due in 2018. He’s also likely to appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Because the news is out there, Momoa can finally talk about the role, and he’s got some good things to say. At a recent convention, the Game of Thrones actor talked about respecting the secrecy of the project, the honor he feels in playing the role because of his Polynesian heritage and what he thinks the solo movie might be about.

UPDATE: ScreenCrush points out these domains were actually registered over 10 years ago.
Though Zack Snyder wowed San Diego Comic-Con earlier this summer with footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans were expecting something else. They were expecting an outline of what Warner Bros. has in store for their DC Comics movies over the next few years. Instead, a version of that announcement came a few weeks later when the company announced release dates for nine upcoming DC Comics movies. Unfortunately, those dates were all for untitled films.
If we’re to believe the wonderful world of domain registration, those titles should be coming soon. Warner Bros. just registered websites for four DC Comics movies we’re all been pretty sure are coming: Justice League, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Shazam. Read More »

In the wake of the uber-massive-success of Marvel’s The Avengers, it wasn’t a huge surprise to hear that Warner Bros. had hired a writer to revive Justice League. They’re DC’s answer to the superhero team and a project has been in various stages of development for several years. The key to The Avengers, though, wasn’t just that it was a good movie. Much of its success was because it was more than a movie. The Avengers was an event with a four year, five film build up that started with Iron Man in 2008. Which begs the question, will Warner Bros. attempt to go the same route or will they jump right into a Justice League movie?
A report from Variety suggests the former. They’ve dug up that in addition to Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, the Justice League news, and the Wonder Woman news, Warner Bros. has six other characters at various stages of development. And no, that does not include Green Lantern or Batman, both of which might get rebooted. Read what’s what after the jump. Read More »
