The burly 'Game of Thrones' star is in negotiations for an unspecified role in the superhero blockbuster, which will see Henry Cavill reprise his role as Superman alongside Ben Affleck as Batman.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Momoa may be in line to play the villainous Doomsday, who in the 'Superman' comic books 'killed' the heroic protagonist. The devious character is rumoured to be one of the main villains in the new film.

However, the actor may also be lined up to join a superhero team with Superman, Batman and the recently cast Wonder Woman - played by Gal Gadot - and could play the Martian Manhunter, an alien trapped on Earth.

The untitled 'Man of Steel' sequel is being directed by Zack Snyder for a July 2015 release.
