Jason Momoa is in talks to lead Netflix’s spin-off series based on The Witcher.
Casting for show has already begun for The Witcher: Blood Origin and rumours are Netflix is looking to cast Game of Thrones and Aquaman star Jason Momoa as the lead for the prequel.
While the rumours are yet to be confirmed, the news follows a viral fanmade art that sees Jason Momoa alongside Henry Cavill, who plays Geralt of Rivia, the solitary monster hunter.
The fan art shows Momoa and Cavill posing back-to-back in a setting from The Witcher and was amid the rumours that are circulating online to suggest that Momoa may be cast in the prequel series.
The Aquaman star took to Instagram where he shared the fan art, teasing his involvement in The Witcher.
Jason Momoa posted the image as part of his Instagram Story on Thursday where he seemingly joked about the rumor. He also tagged his fellow Justice League Superman actor Henry Cavill.
“Henry Cavill, what’s up homie?” he captioned the post.
The Henry Cavill-led fantasy was a huge hit for Netflix when it was released last year, so it’s no surprise that Season 2 is going to be even bigger and better.
According to reports, The Witcher: Blood Origin will take place 1,200 years before the events of The Witcher, in an elven world, and will focus on “the events that lead to the pivotal ‘conjunction of the spheres’, when the world of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.”
The six-part live-action limited series will be helmed by Declan de Barra.
Jason Momoa and Henry Cavill will also be seen together as part of the Snyder Cut of Justice League which is scheduled to release next year on HBO Max.
He will also return for Aquaman 2 and will be featured in December’s Dune.
