Toldja: Matt Damon Up For Aquaman In Justice League



It just became known that Zack Snyder will be directing the Justice League movie which will feature Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

It's also been said that Ray Fisher will play Victor Stone, aka Cyborg.

So who will make up the other members of the Justice League?

Back in August of last year, Cosmic Book News was told that Warner Bros. has major interest in bringing Matt Damon into the Justice League with it rumored that Damon is being considered for either Aquaman or the Martian Manhunter.

Now TheWrap reports more of the same stating it's been rumored for a while in Hollywood that Matt Damon is being sought to play Aquaman.

It's also noted that Jason Momoa is up for a role, which could be Aquaman as well. Momoa's name has been also associated with Martian Manhunter, which is what we've previously been told.

The same source that gave us this info also told us Bryan Cranston was going to play Lex Luthor, but changed his mind. The source also told us first that Batman Vs. Superman would lead into Justice League, which is what the president of worldwide production for Warner Bros. just confirmed.

Matt Damon is also producing the DC Comics Vertigo comic book movie, Sleepers, with Ben Affleck.

The untitled "Batman Vs Superman" has a newly announced May 6, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter and Tao Okamoto in new character roles for the film.
