UPDATE 3:48 pm: Momoa's rep declined to comment, but based on the reports, there's still a good chance he'll be our new Aquaman.

EARLIER: Khal Drogo may soon be the ruler of the seas.

Jason Momoa, best known as the warrior and head of the Dothraki in "Game of Thrones," is set to play Aquaman in the "Man of Steel" sequel, according to HitFix. Rumors that the actor would play the DC Comics ruler of Atlantis had previously circulated, but much to Momoa's disliking. The Hawaiian-born actor apparently denied the rumors and got annoyed at reporters when asked about the casting back in May.

Now, HitFix has confirmed that Momoa will play Aquaman in the upcoming "Man of Steel" sequel, "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice." Althought Warner Bros. hasn't made the announcement official, Drew McWeeny of HitFix reports that director Zack Snyder has already finalized his design plans for the character. "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" is slated to hit theaters May 6, 2016.

Momoa's reps did not immediately return HuffPost's request for comment, but check back for updates.
