It’s also been said Warner Bros. is moving forward with an Aquaman movie with Justice League writer Will Beall attached or possibly Zack Snyder’s 300 writer, Kurt Johnstad.
Now EW.com caught up with Momoa and asked if he could confirm the role; however, Jason Momoa’s lips are still sealed. He did however, offer a small tease:
Well, I’m really excited for it [Batman vs. Superman] to come out in 2016, I’ll tell you that much. I’m really excited to see what is happening in that world.
Jason Momoa also released images and video of himself training at the facility that also happened to have new Wonder Woman Gal Gadot training with Henry Cavill’s trainer.
Regarding Aquaman, many fans online are speculating that Aquaman comes to the world of man as a result of Zod’s World Engine that was featured in Man of Steel. It’s thought the World Engine may have damaged the Earth’s oceans.
Another possibility is that Aquaman was already aware of Superman, with some online thinking the oil rig scene with the whales was Aquaman sending help. You can watch that scene here.
