We told you in June that Jason Momoa was rumored to play Aquaman, the King of Atlantis, in the upcoming "Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice" flick. Now, we are learning the "Game of Thrones" star will also star in his own "Aquaman" solo movie!

The Hollywood Reporter states Warner Bros. is working on two scripts for the movie. Kurt Johnstad, who wrote "300: Rise of an Empire" and Will Beall, who wrote "Castle," will pen each pen their own version of the film.

Warner Bros. has not yet commented on Momoa playing the part.

The actor squashed rumors to MTV that he would take on the role.

"I get it all the time. It's just a rumor. I swear," Momoa stated. "Man to man. You can punch me in the face [if I'm lying]. You're allowed to punch me in the face."

Momoa starred in season one of HBO's "Game of Thrones" as warlord Khal Drogo. He was also seen in "Baywatch," "Bullet to the Head," and "Conan and the Barbarian." Other credits include the short-lived "North Shore" and "Stargate: Atlantis."

He has his own production company, Pride of Gypsies, as he hopes to expand his career from actor to filmmaker. The star lives with actress Lisa Bonet, with whom he has two children.

"Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice" premieres May 6, 2016. The Hawaii-born Momoa will star alongside Amy Adams, Henry Cavill, and Ben Affleck. Other co-stars include Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, and Jeremy Irons. 

The upcoming flick is the sequel to last year's "Man of Steel," which rivals the "Avengers" franchise. The studio plans to shoot "Justice League" upon completion of "Batman v. Superman." They are aiming for a 2017 release.
