None of us are Jason Momoa, but wouldn’t it be great if we were? The sexy, gigantic beefcake owned pretty much all of his scenes on Game Of Thrones, and now that the man formerly known as Khal Drogo is headed to Hollywood, it’s only a matter of time until he dominates the marketplace. And in modern Hollywood, that requires less actual acting and starring in movies than it does denying roles in blockbuster films, usually where you play superheroes. So for being linked to the Man Of Steel Sequel, Momoa has certainly made it in this industry.
Unfortunately for this nation of Momoa-heads (this guy’s fans need a nickname, stat), he’s not currently involved with that film. Speaking to IGN, Momoa lets down Momoans (nailed it) by revealing his attachment to the film is “just rumors. I want to say something amazing, but I can’t comment on rumors.” He coyly adds, “It’s flattering. [But] I’m not involved in it.”
Momoa auditioned for another superhero role, that of Drax the Destroyer in Guardians Of The Galaxy, but the part went to Dave Bautista. Later in the interview, Momoa comments about how Guardians is likely what linked him to DC’s superpowered 2015 release. In this business, if you’re attached to one superhero movie, you’re attached to all of them.
