Jason Momoa fans shouldn’t expect too much from his impending appearance in next year’s “Batman v Superman : Dawn of Justice”.
According to Bad Ass Digest, the ‘Game of Thrones’ alum only appears – as Aquaman – twice in the movie.
Aquaman will appear in a scene in which Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) is doing a survey of metahumans, and then later – at the end of the film – he is recruited by Batman to join the Justice League.
Meanwhile, one superhero movie is copping a bit of flack for leaving a character out.
Joss Whedon tells Empire that he’s received much criticism from leaving Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man character out of proceedings, but does have a good reason why he didn’t include the character :
“Of all the heat I’ve ever taken, not having Hank Pym was one of the bigger things. But the fact of the matter was, Edgar [Wright] had him first and by virtue of what Edgar was doing, there was no way for me to use him in this.
Ultron needs to be the brainchild of the Avengers, and in the world of the Avengers and the MCU, Tony Stark is that guy. Banner has elements of that guy – we don’t really think of him as being as irresponsible as Tony Stark, but the motherf–ker tested gamma radiation on himself, with really terrible, way-worse-than-Tony-Stark results.
It didn’t make sense to introduce a third scientist, a third sciencetician, to do that. It was hard for me, because I grew up on the comics, to dump that, but at the end of the day, it’s a more interesting relationship between Tony and Ultron if Tony was once like, ‘You know what would be a really great idea?’They’re doing what they always do – which is jump in headfirst, and then go, ‘Sorry, world!’ But you have to make it their responsibility without just making it their fault.”
“The Avengers : Age of Ultron” opens May 1st in North America.
