    If Wonder Woman is in the movie then I would think Momoa would be perfect as Aries. The Vandall Savage suggestion was good too.

  2. Mark Kennedy says:

    Actually, I see him as Vandal Savage. He would be PERFECT for that part. Don’t know how they would fit him into the movie, but since he’s been around since the dawn of man, it could work.

      They just did Bane in the last Dark Knight movie..it would be silly to bring him back. My bets on Lobo or Doomsday..I don’t think DC is ready for Darkseid..Marvel already has Thanos in the mix starting trouble.

      I could see him as Darksied or Lobo (though I highly doubt they’d use Lobo)
