jason_momoaThe Dothraki Knight Rises? Khal Drogo is getting all up in your DC Universe as Jason Momoa is in talks to join Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot in the cast of the currently untitled Man of Steel sequel. Heat Vision is speculating he could be playing Doomsday or Martian Manhunter in the film. If he is indeed being set to play J’onn J’onnz, then that is one of the JLA’s heaviest hitters on the board and this is looking more like the reports this is a back door Justice League movie rather than a Batman Vs. Superman film are true.

Callan Mulvey was reportedly up for the role of the film’s big bad, which may take Doomsday off the table for Momoa. For our part, we’d love to float a much cooler idea, Jason Momoa as The Main Man himself, Lobo. Come on. Search your heart, you know it to be true. You want the Khaleesi’s main squeeze to be the biggest bastich in the galaxy. Stay tuned for more details as they come out.

UPDATE: This could be rumor, but a somewhat reliable source has reached out and said that Momoa is in talks to play Metallo. This could just be more unconfirmed speculation, but the source was accurate in their prediction of Gal Gadot, so take it as you will. Metallo, Doomsday, Martian Manhunter, and Lobo, who are you hoping Momoa is playing in the upcoming film?
