Jason Momoa responds to Batman vs Superman rumours

The gargantuan 'Game Of Thrones' actor was asked by IGN whether or not he was actually in negotiations to star in the 'Man of Steel' sequel, but Momoa was quick to confirm, "It's just a rumour."

He then guessed why he is constantly linked to Snyder's follow-up, remarking, "Maybe I told someone that it would be awesome and that's how it started."

Of course, the fact that Momoa insists he won't be in 'Batman vs Superman' actually doesn't mean anything.

Just last month, Paul Rudd told everyone and his grandma that he hadn't even heard of Edgar Wright, Marvel or 'Ant-Man' while promoting 'Anchorman 2,' only to be confirmed as the lead actor in the upcoming comic-book adventure just a few days later.

Momoa is believed to have auditioned for the role of either Doomsday or Martian Manhunter, and he is thought to have gone up against Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for the part, who recently admitted that he has been in talks with DC Comics over an unspecified part.

The Hollywood Reporter exclusively revealed in December that Momoa had been in discussions over joining the franchise.

However, since then, Momoa's name hasn't really been mentioned in the same breath as the hugely anticipated epic even though Doomsday is almost certainly going to feature, which suggests that Snyder and DC are looking at different actors for the super-villain.

If Momoa has been overlooked for 'Batman vs Superman' then it will be the second comic book character that he has missed out on.

Momoa admitted to IGN that he also auditioned for Drax the Destroyer in 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' a role which eventually went to Dave Bautista. He solemnly responded to the suggestion that he almost landed the part by shrugging his shoulders and noting, "I mean you audition for things …"

Do you think Doomsday will feature in 'Batman vs Superman'? Who do you think is the perfect actor for the Kryptonian killing machine?
