Jason Momoa has shot down the rumor that he is in talks or will have a role for Batman Vs. Superman and has confirmed he auditioned for Guardians of the Galaxy.
The actor goes so far to even state that he isn't involved in Batman Vs. Superman.
IGN caught up with Jason Momoa, who was stated to be in negotiations for Batman Vs. Superman by the webite The Hollywood Reporter, and Momoa says no.
"It's just rumor. It's flattering. I want to say something amazing, but I can't comment on rumors. I'm not involved in it," he said.
Momoa goes on to comment that he may have mentioned he wouldn't mind being in the film, but regarding talks, that didn't happen.
"Maybe that's how it came out. 'You should be in this!' and I said, 'Yeah that would be great!' And it just went too far," Momoa said.
Previously, Momoa was rumored for the Guardians of the Galaxy movie for Drax, and he confirms that was true.
"I mean you audition for things. I auditioned for it. I think it's the kind of thing where he said he's a big guy and he does action, and he's gonna fit in somewhere," Momoa offered.
Jason Momoa was speculated to be playing the Martian Manhunter by many; so with this news, it's possible the character might not be featured at all in Batman Vs. Superman - or just that they have a different actor.
"Batman Vs Superman" has a July 17, 2015 release also starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
