Trouble is brewing in the seas of the DC Universe. Jason Momoa has seemingly blocked his Aquaman co-star Amber Heard on Instagram following this summer’s reshoots.
Today saw the release of massive allegations against Jason Momoa and the Aquaman crew by Amber Heard, who plays Mera in the DC Studios project. Despite all the drama unfolding in the DC Universe in recent years, many fans were blindsided by this information. However, a hint many people may have missed was Momoa unfollowing Heard on Instagram, with Variety’s insiders stating he then blocked the actress from even following him.
It’s unclear how all of this drama may affect the box office of the upcoming Aquaman sequel. The first DC Universe film broke a billion at the box office, leading DC Studios to put a sequel into production with both Jason Momoa and Amber Heard returning. However, all of the controversies may lead the film to be yet another box office bomb for the company.
The future of the DC Universe
James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room, and a unified storyline across film, television, animation, and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods, The Flash, and Blue Beetle have all been released following the announcement of the new DC Universe, with Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom still slated to hit theaters in 2023. Will the characters from those movies make appearances in the new DCU? Only Gunn and Safran know.
