Warner Bros is used to backlash by this point when they announce casting for Batman vs. Superman. First, the casting of Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader caused the Internet to revolt. Then last week’s news that Gal Gadot would play Wonder Woman got everyone uptight about her body type. Today comes news that Jason Momoa is in negotiations to join the film. Warners have wisely decided not to reveal his role. We can’t get mad if we don’t have the facts (allegedly).
Of course, there is speculation that Momoa will play the film’s villian Doomsday. Or maybe Martian Manhunter (if this movie is being used to set up a Justice League film). Or somebody else entirely. Let’s add to the speculative fire and just say he’s playing Lobo. Or Mr. Myxlplyx. Could happen. (THR)
