Update 06/15/14: Jason Momoa shares Instagram photo holding an Aquaman-like trident


Jason Momoa has been linked to Batman vs. Superman since late last year. Since then, Momoa has denied having any involvement in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel. He even told MTV’s Josh Horowitz that he could punch him in the face if the rumors were true. Well… it looks like Josh Horowitz gets to punch Jason Momoa in the face!

Back in April Batman News exclusively reported that Momoa had signed a contract and joined the cast of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and now we know who he’ll be playing! HitFix reports that Momoa has been cast as Aquaman, and that Zack Snyder has already finalized his designs for the character so shooting can take place soon.

Of course nothing is official until Warner Bros. makes an announcement, but HitFix has a great track record. How do you feel about Jason Momoa joining the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice cast as Aquaman? Let me know in the comments below.
