Briefly: We don’t know who he’ll play (Doomsday might be a safe bet) but Jason Momoa (Conan, Game of Thrones) is in talks to join the cast of Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman. He joins Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman and the most recent addition Gal Godot as Wonder Woman.
With that roster of three heroes, and the supposed involvement of the Flash, speculation is rampant that this is really turning into a Justice League movie. That leads to further speculation that Momoa might play another hero, with Martian Manhunter’s name cropping up. We’ll update with more details as soon as we get them. [THR]
Rumors have swirled for months about whether or not Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck will be joined by another hero in the sequel to Man of Steel. Now we have the answer: Gal Gadot (the Fast and the Furious series) will be Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Batman Vs. Superman. Read More »

Ben Affleck was not the Internet’s top pick to play Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, to put it mildly, in part because we all remember what happened the last time he donned a superhero costume. But if it’s any consolation, Affleck is just as aware as you are that Daredevil sucked, calling it “the only movie I actually regret.”
Hit the jump to read his thoughts on Daredevil, plus his comments on how his Batman “doesn’t compete” with Christian Bale’s.

Warner Bros. has yet to formally announce a title to the Man of Steel sequel, set for release in July 2015, which will feature Batman. Rumors swirled it would be called Batman vs. Superman, and a member of the crew even called the film that during some early filming in Los Angeles. Apparently, though, the studio has yet to make a final decision and has registered multiple domains for multiple different titles to the film, all of which focus on calling the film “Man of Steel” in some way.

“A young John Hawkes type.” That was the description reportedly being floated a few weeks back for the role of Dick Grayson in Zack Snyder‘s Batman vs. Superman. The truth of that statement became the subject of conversation, especially when the name Adam Driver started to get mentioned in connection to the role. Driver, best known for his role on Girls, fits that description perfectly and was rumored to be a “front runner” for the role, along with a few others.
Driver is currently doing press for the Coen Bros. Inside Llewyn Davis and says there are no truth to those rumors. But which rumors is he denying? That he’s actually been cast? That he’s a front runner? It’s definitely a matter of semantics, but it doesn’t look good. Watch some video below. Read More »
