Jason Momoa has spent the past several months deflecting Aquaman talk, even though we’ve known since this summer that he’d won the role. But now that DC’s finally made the official announcement he’s finally free to spill the details on his splashy superhero gig.

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.

Warner Bros. did its big shareholder talk this morning, and took the opportunity to drop some big release date info. The biggest is the studio’s upcoming plans for superhero films, and massive DC movie plans were revealed.
Suicide Squad will be the first DC film to follow Batman v Superman, with a plan for release in 2016. Then things get really big. In 2017 we’ll see Wonder Woman and Justice League, with 2018 bringing The Flash (with Ezra Miller starring) and Aquaman. In 2019 WB plans Shazam and Justice League 2.
Finally, studio head Kevin Tsujihara says there are plans coming together for Cyborg (played by Ray Fisher in Batman v Superman), a Green Lantern reboot, and additional standalone Batman and Superman films. Read More »
Jason Momoa is probably only a small part of Wolves, the movie from writer/director David Hayter, but he looks like one of the best parts. Hayter jumps from screenwriter (X-Men, Watchmen) and voice actor (he was Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid games until Kiefer Sutherland took over) to feature director. Wolves is about — brace yourself — a bunch of werewolves. Lucas Till plays a high school kid who has some hairy stuff developing in his blood. He hits the road and ends up in a town full of secrets and werewolves. I’m sure there’s a coming of age metaphor here somewhere, but you’ll have to give me a minute to pin it down. In the meantime, watch the Wolves red-band trailer below. Read More »

Dave Bautista did a terrific job as Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy, but there was a chance early on that the role could have gone to Jason Momoa.
