After several months of rumours concerning his involvement, GAME OF THRONES' Jason Momoa is now revealed to be donning the outfit of the Dweller of the Depths, Aquaman, in 2016's BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE.

While Warner Bros. hasn’t confirmed Mamoa’s involvement themselves, Drew McWeeney of Hitfix has announced that he ‘can confirm that he will be playing the part, and that Zack Snyder has already finalized his designs for the character so shooting can take place soon.’

On the subject of the catastrophic destruction that occurred in last year’s MAN OF STEEL, Hitfix added ‘Someone else who's not particularly happy about what happened in that film is Aquaman. I'm not sure if that's the actual name they'll use or not, but what we're hearing is that he is not pleased about the World Engine and what it did to the Indian Ocean. He will not have a major role in the film, but he will make an appearance, and it definitely sets him up to return once Snyder gets to JUSTICE LEAGUE.’

BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE opens April 29th 2016, followed by JUSTICE LEAGUE sometime in 2017.

Aquaman is and has always been a badass, and his designation as a pop culture punching bag is down to the tainted residue of the naffness that was Super Friends. Perhaps the Momoa grizzled sexiness will bring people around to the true way of thinking.

Sub-Mariner, on the other hand, is an arrogant and obnoxious manwhore who looks like a gay porn star.

I take it back. It's Sub-Mariner who is cool with pointy ears! Aquaman IS lame! LAME. At least he will be sexy and lame...

Oh god! Doesn't he have pointy ears? Everyone always seems to say he's lame but from the comic book pictures I've seen in the past, he always looks cool to me! But wow didn't expect a Momoa type?! I guess this is their solution to lame if it's true.
Not that I'm complaining... #hubbahubba
