Jason Momoa is rumored to be playing Aquaman, and all but recently confirmed it.

Now Momoa possibly gives hints about Aquaman while attending the Evolution Expo in Oakland, California.

Momoa says he's not big on playing a superhero, but more of an anti-hero, with Lobo and the Hulk mentioned.

“I think it would be really, really fun to play a superhero. You know? I’ve always talked about, like, what’s your favorite. I mean I love Lobo so… but ah… You know. It would be awesome. I don’t know how they do it but… Yea, absolutely I think it would…I just don’t really see myself as a superhero. Yeah, no I mean, they’re kind of written a little different. I don’t know. I just… you know. I’m not wearing a lot of the…I don’t see myself in tights a lot. And ah…I’m more of a, I don’t know, an anti-hero if you will. In life. So, not the smiling, parading to saving the world kind of guy. Yeah, the Hulk would have been fun!”

It's speculated that Aquaman is ticked off after the events from Man of Steel that saw the World Engine possibly damage the world's oceans.

Martian Manhunter has been another name that has popped up at times associated with Momoa as well.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" 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. Justice League is to follow directed by Zack Snyder as well.
