One Game of Thrones star simply wasn’t enough. ComicBook.com reports that Kristofer Hivju was offered a role in Justice League as an Ancient Atlantean King. While on the movie’s set outside of London over the weekend, the team over at ComicBook noticed Hivju in some concept art listed as the Ancient Atlantean King.
However, while Tormund may be headed to the DC Cinematic Universe, his role is yet to be confirmed by the studio or his reps, despite multiple reports stating that his involvement is confirmed. The actor had previously passed on the role in hopes of getting something with more lines and more of a story.
The character would likely play a small part in the Justice League, though it is possible that he will have a greater purpose in James Wan’s 2018 Aquaman film which has another Game of Thrones star headlining.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, this marks the big screen debut of the Justice League, featuring an all-star lineup: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher.
