Aquaman star Jason Momoa is teasing the future of the DC Universe under James Gunn and Peter Safran.
During a recent discussion with ET Canada, Aquaman star Jason Momoa was asked about the return of Henry Cavill’s Superman. While sharing his thoughts on the matter, Momoa teased that his dream DC Universe project is finally becoming a reality thanks to James Gunn and Peter Safran, the heads of Warner Bros. Discovery’s newly-created DC Studios division.
“I think with Peter Safran and Mr. Gunn at the helm now of DC — very excited about that — there’s a lot of cool things that are gonna be coming up, and one of my dreams come true will be happening under their watch. So, stay tuned,” Momoa told the folks at ET Canada.
Jason Momoa made his debut as Aquaman in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which opened in theaters in March 2016. The following year, Momoa was featured alongside the rest of the DC Universe heroes in Justice League, before reprising the role for his Aquaman standalone movie, which is the highest-grossing DC Comics feature to date. His character will next be seen in Aquaman and the Last Kingdom, which arrives in Winter 2023.
DC’s new management is already hard at work
Last month, James Gunn and Peter Safran signed a four-year deal to run DC Studios. The division is now in charge of DC’s film, television and animations efforts at Warner Bros. Discovery, bringing the company’s comic book-related assets under one roof.
James Gunn is expected to focus on the creative direction of the DC Universe while Peter Safran will handle business and production. They will report directly to Warner Bros. Discovery chief David Zaslav and collaborate with Warner Bros. Film Group co-heads Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy.
