Right after the news that Gal Godot is playing Wonder Woman in Batman vs Superman, we’re hearing about another major character who may be in this already-crowded movie. THR says slap fight champion Jason Momoa (AKA Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones) is in negotiations for an undisclosed role, although they do have a couple of ideas about who he’s playing. I’m hoping it’s the second one:
There’s been speculation that the movie’s villain could be Doomsday, a Kryptonian scientifically engineered into an intergalactic killing machine. Doomsday famously “killed” Superman in the comics, which became a media event in 1992. The character’s existence is even hinted in the extras of the Man of Steel Blu-ray. However, a source speculated that if Warners is populating the movie with members of the Justice League, Momoa could also play the Martian Manhunter, a super-powered alien trapped on Earth. Momoa, with his muscular physique, could be a fit for either character. [THR]
Ugh. I never want to hear about the “death” of Superman again. Also, there’s only one version of Doomsday worth putting on film, and it’s this…
