After an absolutely crazy week for superhero news last time around, things have slowed down a little over the past seven days, although there's still plenty to get through in this edition of The Week in Spandex, starting with Sony's big announcement that it's given the green light to two villain-centred spin-offs from its Amazing Spider-Man franchise in Venom and The Sinister Six. Venom didn't come as much as a surprise, seeing as Sony has been keen to get it off the ground for some time now, having attached Chronicle director Josh Trank before he jumped ship to another Marvel project in »

New Batman Vs Superman movie bringing on new mystery character for action,new details. According to a new report from Batman News, the new "Batman Vs. Superman" super hero/action flick folks are currently in talks with actor, Jason Momoa (left), to come on, and play a mystery character in the flick. There's, of course, speculation running rampant about who he'll play. Some suggestions have been possibly Martian Manhunter or Doomsday, since those two characters have been rumored to show up. Warner Bros. Pictures is also reportedly looking to bring on villain character, Callan Mulvey, for action. Jason Momoa's acting resume includes roles in HBO's "Game Of Thrones" as Khal Drogo, Conan in the 2011 Conan the Barbarian remake. He also showed up way back when on the popular Baywatch series. But I think we'll just try and forget about that one,lol!! But, hey, it was a paycheck,right? »
According to a report, sources say that Momoa is currently in negotiations to join the highly anticipated film opposite star Henry Cavill, but his role is unknown. Momoa is a frequent player in the fantasy/action genre. He stared in the first season of Game of Thrones as Khal Drogo and started in the failed 2011 remake of Conan the Barbarian. Known for his large stature and muscular form, Momoa would fit right into the super-hero world. But, with both Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) joining the cast of characters for director Zack Snyder’s next film, some speculate as to whether or not Momoa will play the villain or another potential member of the Justice League. »
Having secured the Dark Knight (Ben Affleck) and the Amazon Princess (Gal Gadot), it seems that casting on Batman vs. Superman is moving full steam ahead, with various sources reporting that Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Conan the Barbarian) is in talks with Warner Bros. about taking on a role in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.
At present, there's no word on which role Momoa is up for, although speculation from The Hollywood Reporter has identified both Doomsday and Martian Manhunter as possibilities, even though we have no confirmation about either of the characters featuring in David S. Goyer's script.
Batman vs. Superman is set for release on July 17th 2015, with Zack Snyder directing a cast that also includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Clark Kent / Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White). »

Godzilla: After two viral videos hit the Web yesterday, we have our first (somewhat more clear) peek at the new Godzilla. In one image, it's the monster described by director Gareth Edwards as "a force of nature, like the wrath of God or vengeance for the way we've behaved." The other new picture features Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays a soldier. Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston also star; the movie stomps into theaters on May 16. [USA Today] Batman vs. Superman: Jason Momoa, who starred in the 2011 version of Conan the Barbarian but made a much greater impression in the first season of Game of Thrones as the powerful Khal Drogo, is in talks to play a role in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman. But what role will he be taking on...

The most entertaining aspect of “Batman vs. Superman,” thus far, has been the fan reaction. The announcement of the project itself caused quite a stir, but when it was revealed Ben Affleck would play Batman, all hell broke loose… on the internet. Things seemed to have calmed down since, though the announcement that Wonder Woman would also be appearing in the film was also quite a surprise. Regardless, Warner Brothers and DC Comics remain unfettered, as they have just announced that Jason Momoa (“Conan the Barbarian”) is currently in negotiations to join the cast as well. So, who will Jason Momoa be playing? Well, there have been rumors that he could be playing Doomsday, who was recently mentioned as being a possible villain. There’s also the possibility, according to a source from THR, that he could be playing Martian Manhunter, who’s a member of Justice League. And that »

Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are hoping to snag Jason Momoa for a role in Zack Snyder's Batman/Superman mash-up. Momoa is in talks to join the movie currently known as "Batman Vs. Superman," but so far we can only wager a few guesses as to which superhero (or super-villain) he'll play.
The man who brought Khal Drogo to rippling, muscular life would be an excellent choice to play Justice League member Martian Manhunter, a buff bad-ass from outer space that would fit into a possible larger Jla franchise. He could also take on the role of Doomsday, a beastly Kryptonian whose only purpose and desire is to kill, baby, kill.
Momoa is no stranger to the universe of fantasy and sci-fi. In 2011, he donned a loincloth to play Conan the Barbarian in an attempt to refresh that '80s franchise. He also appeared in the popular sci-fi series "Stargate: Atlantis" as Ronon Dex. »

Since leaving the epic HBO ensemble series Game Of Thrones, hulking actor Jason Momoa has found himself a little unlucky. After landing the lead title character in Conan The Barbarian, the disappointing result both commercially and critically suggested he may not be a leading man. He’s followed that up with a villain role in Walter Hill and Sylvester Stallone’s dud Bullet To The Head and will next be seen in David Hayter’s action/horror hybrid Wolves. It’s also worth pointing out he narrowly lost out on a role of Drax The Destroyer in James Gunn’s upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy.
Well, what could be Marvel’s loss may well turn out to be DC and Warner Bros. gain, as the Hawaiian actor is said to be in final negotiations for an unknown role in Zack Snyder’s still-untitled Batman Vs. Superman project. His beefy presence »

"Game of Thrones" star Jason Momoa (a.k.a. the fearsome Khal Drogo) may be racking up another notch on his franchise belt. The "Conan the Barbarian" star is in talks to join Zack Snyder's forthcoming "Man of Steel" sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter, though word on which character Momoa might be playing isn't yet known. If he joins up with the film (popularly referred to as "Batman vs. Superman"), the actor would join Henry Cavill (Superman), Ben Affleck (Batman) and relative newcomer Gal Gadot, whose casting as Wonder Woman was announced just last week. So which character will Momoa be taking on? »

Add one more cast member to the growing roster of Batman vs. Superman. Just last week we learned that Fast & Furious actress Gal Gadot was taking the role of Diana Prince (aka Wonder Woman) in the ever-expanding DC Entertainment adaptation at Warner Bros., and now one more cast member has entered the mix. THR has word that former "Game of Thrones" and Conan the Barbarian reboot star Jason Momoa has landed an unknown role in the sequel pitting Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck against each other as the Man of Steel and The Dark Knight. Could Momoa be playing an unknown villain, or another hero? The trade speculates that Momoa could be on the side of the heroes as someone like Martian Manhunter, a superhero from the planet Mars and the last surviving member of his race. His natural abilities include super-strength, super-speed, invulnerability, flight, shape-shifting, intangibility and telepathy, and »

Jason Momoa.s first attempt to break out as a blockbuster star didn.t exactly go as planned, with the Marcus Nispel-directed Conan The Barbarian remake failing to do big business at the box office, but now it appears as though Momoa may be getting a big second chance. Variety is reporting that the Game of Thrones actor is now in the middle of negotiations for a part in Zack Snyder.s highly-anticipated Man of Steel sequel. Sadly, that.s where the well of information runs dry. The trade.s sources do not know what part Momoa is being considered for, and Warner Bros. had no comment on the story. It.s worth noting that when Gal Gadot was added to the film as Wonder Woman last week it was reported that the production was looking for an actor to play the story.s main villain. At the time »
Although these days Jason Momoa is known more for his role as Conan in the ill-fated “Conan the Barbarian” reboot and on HBO’s “Game of Thrones” as marauding king of the plains Khal Drogo, I still like to think of him more as roguish good guy Ronon Dex on “Stargate: Atlantis”. Either that, or as Jason Ioane on “Baywatch”. Anyways. It looks like Momoa is about to put those muscles to good use, with Variety reporting that the actor is currently “in talks for a part in Warner Bros. untitled Batman-Superman movie”. Now the first thing you have to consider is this: it’s probably not going to be some minor role, since after “Conan” and “Game of Thrones”, Momoa has a bit of a name. And since he’s played a villain before (“Bullet to the Head”, and I guess to an extent his Khal Drogo can be »
Jason Momoa is in negotiations for an unknown role in the highly-anticipated Batman Vs. Superman. If a deal is made, he will join Henry Cavill (Superman/Clark Kent), Ben Affleck (Batman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman).
It is rumored that the actor might be playing the villain Doomsday or Martin Manhunter, although that has not been confirmed. In the DC Comics, Doomsday was the result of Kryptonian genetic engineering gone wrong, with superhuman strength, speed and leaping abilities. His skin is covered with bony spikes that can pierce through Kryptonian skin, and he also has the power of regeneration, causing him to come back to life if he is ever killed. Martian Manhunter is an alien with powers such as telepathy, shape-shifting, X-ray vision, along with super strength, speed and endurance. The actor's muscular 6'4" frame makes him »
The man who played (a rebooted) Conan the Barbarian and Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones could be close to joining Zack Snyder's Batman vs. Superman movie. THR reports that Jason Momoa is currently in talks to join the cast of the highly anticipated sequel to this year's Man of Steel. Who he's playing is still a mystery. Early speculation ranges from Superman villain Doomsday to Justice League member the Martian Manhunter. The sequel added Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman last week. It's becoming more apparent that Warner Bros. is looking to build its Justice League movie by casting various members of the League in this sequel. If that's the case, and Momoa ends up playing Martian Manhunter, then rumors of Aquaman and the Flash...

According to sources of both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, actor Jason Momoa has entered negotiations with Warner Bros. to join the growing cast of the Zack Snyder-directed Man of Steel follow-up, tentatively titled Batman Vs. Superman. As for whom the 38-year-old Game of Thrones alum will portray, it's currently being kept under wraps. However, the sources suggests it's either the big bad Doomsday, or the Martian Manhunter, yet another charter member of Justice League. Whoever it may be, it seems likely that Jason Momoa has replaced Captain America: The Winter Soldier actor Callan Mulvey on the studios' radar. In addition to Game of Thrones, Momoa starred in the 2011 Conan the Barbarian, and he reportedly turned down Marvel's "low-ball" offer to play Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy. Anyhow, should his deal close with Warner, Jason Momoa will join Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, »
The Hollywood Reporter 's Heat Vision Blog has heard from sources that Jason Momoa ("Game of Thrones") is in negotiations to join the cast of Zack Snyder's Batman vs. Superman movie in an undisclosed role. Momoa first broke out playing the warlord Khal Drogo on HBO's hit series "Game of Thrones" before being cast as Conan the Barbarian in the 2011 remake by Marcus Nispel. Most recently, Momoa could be seen fighting Sylvester Stallone in his action flick Bullet to the Head , and he's also starring in David Hayter's werewolf action movie Wolves . THR offers a bit of conjecture about who Momoa may be playing, mentioning the rumors that the Kryptonian killing machine Doomsday may be one of the film's primary villains, but another option they suggest is »
