In a comment posted on Instagram, Dwayne Johnson revealed Jason Momoa nearly appeared in the Hobbs and Shaw film and expressed his desire to see the Aquaman star appear in a future Fast & Furious film.
Dwayne Johnson will reprise his role as Luke Hobbs in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and this time the titular character will be joined by his brother, played by WWE Superstar Roman Reigns. However, Johnson revealed the role nearly went to Aquaman star Jason Momoa before scheduling issues prevented the duo from playing siblings on screen:
“Me and Momoa tried hard to get him in this movie to play my brother. But his schedule was too packed.”
However, Dwayne Johnson seems confident that the lead actor of Aquaman will appear in a future spin-off, writing, “Next Hobbs movie for sure.”

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
Here are the 9 theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”
