Over the last several months, one of the most informative sources about Warner Bros. movie plans involving DC Comics characters has been Kevin Smith’s Hollywood Babble-On podcast. In the latest episode of Hollywood Babble-On, Ralph Garman brought up the recent casting of Jason Momoa as Aquaman in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Surprisingly, Smith did not profess to knowing about the casting in advance. However, he did have an opinion on Momoa as Aquaman.
Well, I think most people of course when they think of f****** Aquaman, they think of the traditional cartoon version, but the current version or incarnation is he’s a badass king of the seven seas, a warlord to some degree. So I could see where they would get away with casting this dude.
After looking at a picture of Aquaman and Jason Momoa side by side, Smith added, “Yeah, I’d buy it. Will they blonde his hair, you think? It’s awesome. Think about it dude, they use to make fun of Aquaman all the time. Aquaman, he only talks to f****** fishes. F****** say that to that dude’s face.”
Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on May 6, 2016.
