He's been your favorite bearded Wildling on HBO's Game of Thrones for a couple of years now but Kristofer Hivju may be headed to the big screen for Justice League.

While on the movie's set outside of London over the weekend, we noticed Hivju in some concept art listed as the Ancient Atlantean King. However, while Tormund may be headed to the DC Films universe, his role is still unconfirmed (but also not denied) by the studio and his reps despite multiple reports popping up calling his involvement, "confirmed."

Hivju's reps have told Hivju was offered a role in Justice League which he passed on in hopes of getting something with more lines and more of a story. The Ancient Atlantean King role would likely play a small part in Justice League, though he may or may not have more significance in James Wan's 2018 Aquaman film which has another Game of Thrones star headlining.

Aside from Game of Thrones, Hivju's resume includes After Earth, The Thing, and 2017's Fast & Furious 8 which is currently in production.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.


Directed by Zack Snyder, this marks the big screen debut of the Justice League, featuring an all-star lineup: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher.
