On the promotional rounds for his series “The Red Road,” Jason Momoa opened up to EW about his plans for Aquaman in the DC Cinematic Universe. The former ‘Game of Thrones’ star will make his debut as Aquaman in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ on March 25th, 2016, before appearing in ‘The Justice League Part One’ (November 10th, 2017), and then top-lining a stand-alone ‘Aquaman’ movie on July 27th, 2018.
While ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ will mark his first big screen outing, Jason Momoa is quick to downplay the size of his part. “It’s Batman and Superman. “It’s not my movie. It’s the first time in history to have them both on the screen together, and I’m just excited to see those two up there…… ‘Justice League’ is still quite a ways away. But I’m looking forward to it. Henry’s a sweetheart, Ben is a badass, so I’m really looking forward to when we all shoot ‘Justice League.’”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Leonardo DiCaprio is set to play a role he’s eyed for nearly 20 years – that of Billy Milligan, a man with 24 different personalities and the subject of Daniel Keyes’ 1981 nonfiction book “The Minds of Billy Milligan.” The book is being adapted for the screen by Jason Smilovic and Todd Katzberg. DiCaprio will also produce ‘The Crowded Room’ through his Appian Way shingle alongside Jennifer Davisson and New Regency’s Alexandra Milchan. Keyes’ book is described as follows:
Out of control of his own actions, Billy Milligan was a man tormented by twenty-four distinct personalities battling for supremacy over his body — a battle that culminated when he awoke in jail, arrested for the kidnap and rape of three women. In a landmark trial, Billy was acquitted of his crimes by reason of insanity caused by multiple personality — the first such decision in history — bringing to public light the most remarkable and harrowing case of multiple personality ever recorded.
