Last week a rumor surfaced that claimed Josh Holloway was in talks or at least being considered for the role of Aquaman in Batman vs. Superman. The rumor, which has since been debunked, was quickly overshadowed by the fact that the film was pushed back to 2016, however Holloway is still addressing the rumor regardless.
The Lost star spoke to IGN about the Auqaman rumor and said that while he thinks it would be awesome to play Aquaman, he hasnt’ heard anything about it.
“It hasn’t been brought to my attention by my people, so maybe they’re just floating it softly around, but that would be cool! Sure, I think I’m available at the moment as we just wrapped up. I’m an actor, I like different roles. Batman movies are awesome, Marvel movies are awesome. But we’ll see, I’m on a series right now. I think they usually want to sign you up for several movies and I don’t know if you can do that when you’re committed to a series…”
Assuming Holloway’s new series Intelligence survives it’s initial airings and doesn’t get cancelled, there’s little chance that he’ll be free to commit to a giant movie like Batman vs. Superman. Of course, assuming this would mean assuming the original rumor was true, something that is still up for debate.
