Oh it’s real now, folks. We don’t know how much screen time they’ll each be getting, but we know that Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and now Aquaman will be appearing in Zack Snyder’s cinematic turducken Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Wonder Woman and Cyborg’s casting have been out for months now, but it was announced earlier today over at Hitfix that your Aquaman will be…


Khal Drogo himself, Jason Momoa. Crown for king, indeed. According to Drew McWeeny, Aquaman will be pissed off “about the World Engine and what it did to the Indian Ocean.” Superman’s gonna have to answer for all the shredded sea life and pulverized coral reefs. I can see Aquaman showing up at Kal-El’s doorstep with a rotting dolphin slung over his shoulder. “You know what this is, fuckface? I didn’t pull it from no tuna net, so get out there and help me clean this shit up, because you just turned an entire ocean into seafood salad.”

McWeeny also says that the role will be very minor, which comes as no surprise. Hopefully they can still tell a riveting Batman/Superman story with all of this setup going on. We’ll find out in May 2016.
