After months of speculation it looks as if Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice has found its Aquaman. On Monday HitFix reported former Game Of Thrones star Jason Momoa will be slipping on a green and orange bodysuit to play the aquatic superhero that, when not battling villains, goes by Arthur Curry. '[Director] Zack Snyder has already finalized his design for the character so shooting can take place soon,' the site claimed.

The guy is a very good actor. He did a perfect job portraying Khal Drogo.

Well. We all know what Rajesh Koothrappali thinks about Aquaman. He swims in fish pee.

I am so not seeing this already disaster of a Man of Steel sequel.

Affleck as Batman is bad enough - now we have an anorexic Wonder Woman and now Khal Drogo playing Aquaman.

This will end up being worse than Snyder’s Sucker Punch and share the Halley Berry Catwoman league of shame.

DC is a mess rushing to ride on Marvel’s coattails.

Thus guaranteeing I won’t watch it. One of the most stunningly boring characters in comics.

I loved him as Ronon in Stargate: SG1. He was a badass for sure.

Is he Spanish? Hispanic or Mexican? I hope so, a white guy playing Aquaman would be racist.

He looks Norse, maybe a little Conan Barbarian. We could do a blood test.

Clearly you gave up before a few years ago. The recent run has been outstanding. Hopefully they’ll take their cue from that rather than the 1970s cartoon.

He actually played Conan in the “reboot” a couple of years ago. It wasn’t good.

Good writers can make any character intersting, but Aquaman just doesn’t inspire me.

DC is a mess rushing to ride on Marvel’s coattails.

DC is a bunch of morons, they cancelled their “Young Justice” series not because they were not getting good rating (they were getting great ratings) but because their weren’t getting their desired demographic which was 10-16 year old boys instead they were getting young women (who are a decent target demographic) and they canceled it because they are morons.

He and his wife recently starred in the series “The Red Road” on Sundance. I don’t usually watch the channel, but the series sounded interesting. It’s been renewed for a 2nd season.

The New 52 run of Aquaman has been excellent, if you’re into that sort of thing.

One of the best scenes in the whole Game of Thrones series is when Drogo gives that sniveling, whiny king-to-be his Golden Crown.

I can see instantly why they chose him - it’s the naturally blond hair for sure.
