While the LA Kings were establishing their rule over the ice last night, Jason Momoa was staking his claim as king of the seas. A confident new report pegs the former Game of Thrones star as playing Aquaman in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with a larger role likely in the superhero team-up movie, Justice League. It sounds like Snyder’s design for the character is already set, so even though we haven’t heard any official confirmation yet, Momoa is expected to play the part. There’s also a hint of some plot elements for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that would be in direct response to the destructive events that took place in Man of Steel. Hit the jump for more.
[Update: THR has corroborated HitFix's report, citing their own sources as saying Momoa will indeed be playing Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We'll let you know when we get official word from Warner Bros.]
