Closely following a number of reports saying that Jason Momoa has been cast as Aquaman in ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and the ‘Justice League’ movie, THR are indeed confirming these stories. First linked to the film back in December, the actor has been cagey about revealing what role he would play or if he was even going to appear in the film, as the whole project has been shrouded in secrecy.
The ‘Justice League’ film will reportedly shoot back-to-back with ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ and if Momoa is in fact cast as Aquaman, he would be joining fellow ‘Justice League’ members Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and Aquaman in the DC Cinematic Universe. With Comic-Con closing in, expect a lot more news about the future of DC’s slate of movies shortly.
Rumor: Warner Bros & DC’s Upcoming Slate To Include Wonder Woman, Shazam & Green Lantern/Flash Team-Up Projects?
With Comic-Con on the horizon, a new rumored has landed online about what Warner Bros. Pictures and DC have in store for their upcoming batch of movies. Back in April, Warner Bros president of worldwide production Greg Silverman revealed that the studio is moving forward with a ‘Justice League’ movie, and that ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ director Zack Snyder will helm the superhero team-up. Mr. Silverman wouldn’t comment on what other heroes might join Henry Cavill’s Superman, Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and the newly cast Ray Fisher as Cyborg in the movie, though rumors have surrounded the likes of Flash, Nightwing and Aquaman joining the frey – as well as Dwayne Johnson in an unknown role.
With filming now underway, Warner Bros. Pictures have just sent out press release announcing that the ‘Man of Steel’ follow-up is titled ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.’ The highly anticipated action adventure is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from ‘Man of Steel,’ Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film.
So it begins! Twitter used @Mike0686 (via CBM) has uncovered this first look at Gal Gadot filming the tentatively titled ‘Batman vs. Superman.’ Mike Tweeted the following, “Batman vs. Superman filming right outside Google office in Downtown Birmingham. @GalGadot outside our doors.”
Alongside Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, ‘Batman vs. Superman’ also stars Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto and Holly Hunter. The ‘Man of Steel’ follow-up is penciled in for a May 6th, 2016 release date.
Closely following the reveal of Ben Affleck’s Batman, IGN caught up with Jesse Eisenberg and talked about involvement in ‘Batman vs. Superman’ as Lex Luthor. On his take on the character, Eisenberg said, “I don’t know the history as well as the people making the movie, so I guess it’s up to them to figure out how much they want to separate it from previous incarnations. But I will treat it like it’s its own role. There’s no way to play the history of the character played by other people, unless you do some kind of wink, but that doesn’t seem like a responsible way to act. So I will just do it as though it’s a character, in the same way you do a movie like The Double, which is a smaller movie — but you just kind of treat it like a character, and that’s probably the best course of action, I think.”
Here we go, the internet is about to go nuts… director Zack Snyder has took to his official Twitter account to showcase the first look at Ben Affleck’s Batman alongside the new Batmobile. Snyder added the following with the image, “I shot this with my @Leica_Camera M Monochrom. #Batman #Batmobile #Gotham.” A higher resolution version can be found here.
To date, the tentatively titled ‘Batman vs. Superman’ stars Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto and Holly Hunter. Set to begin principle photography any day now, the ‘Man of Steel’ follow-up is penciled in for a May 6th, 2016 release date.
