Jason Momoa to play Aquaman in Batman v Superman

Game of Thrones veteran Jason Momoa is rumored to have been cast to play Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The role will apparently expand into Justice League and maybe more.

Momoa was previously rumored for the role of Doomsday in the DC Universe, so I don't know if I would take this too seriously just yet. The plot that is circling around states that Lex Luthor (to be played by Jesse Eisenberg) will attempt to turn Metropolis against Superman after the destructive events in Man of Steel. Aquaman (aka, Arthur Curry) comes in after his irritation about General Zod's destruction in the Indian Ocean with the World Engine

I personally think Momoa is an interesting choice for Aquaman. By interesting I mean weird. He doesn't resemble the comic character one bit and I just don't think he's the right fit for this specific character. This is how we are used to seeing Aquaman:


Now, take a look at Jason Momoa:

The guy was previously rumored for the role of Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy, but that role went to Dave Bautista. He has also starred in the rather terrible reboot of Conan the Barbarian along with shows like Game of Thrones, Stargate: Atlantis, and Baywatch.
I think he would probably suit Green Lantern a bit better than Aquaman.
