Viewers of “Game of Thrones” grew sentiments for the huge Dothraki chieftain known as Khal Drogo. When his character got killed off, fans felt nothing but remorse for the short time Jason Momoa had in the first season of the popular HBO TV show. Because of how beloved his character turned out to be, people grew expectant for the towering actor to take part in another production project.

Finally, eager beavers will be very giddy once they find out that the actor is now officially confirmed to play the lead superhero role of Aquaman in his own stand-alone franchise for the DC Cinematic Universe with Warner Bros.
According to Screen Rant, “Aquaman’s” involvement in the DC Cinematic Universe has long been spearheaded by DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns when he highlighted how the superhero is given high priority by the company, and it was soon followed by speculations of he’s inclusion in DC’s "Big Three" on the "Dawn of Justice."
Jason Momoa’s “Aquaman” is among the many films that were announced by Warner Bros. just recently, and he did not confirm or deny his involvement.
