Speaking to a packed house at Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo over the weekend, Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa told the crowd, "Like it or not, I'm the new f****** Aquaman, buddy!" according to Gotham-News.

Momoa also spoke about the tribulations of adapting Aquaman to the big screen, saying "I've been hanging out with Geoff Johns and he's a beast. He reinvented the character with the New 52," before going on to say "It has to be realistic and there's a lot of stuff in the comics that won't work on the screen."

Momoa is set to debut as Aquaman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and will go on to co-star in an upcoming Justice League films, which is reportedly a year away from shooting. An Aquaman solo film is planned for 2018.


ARROW Adds A Second Showrunner

The CW's Arrow is adding a new showrunner -- but don't worry, Marc Guggenheim isn't leaving.

On Twitter Thursday, Guggenheim announced that current Arrow executive producer Wendy Mericle has been promoted to co-showrunner. Mericle has become one of Arrow main writers outside the show's creators Guggenehim and Marc Berlanti.

No reason was given for the change, however Guggenheim and Berlanti are spread pretty thin between overseeing Arrow, The Flash as well as the forthcoming untitled Arrow/The Flash spinoff series and CBS's Supergirl.
