Aquaman star Jason Momoa has indicated that his tenure as the aquatic superhero is nearing its end. This revelation comes as the DC Universe prepares to transition into a new era under the leadership of James Gunn and Peter Safran, beginning with Creature Commandos and Superman: Legacy.

Jason Momoa’s recent statements suggest that Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will likely be his final appearance as Arthur Curry, marking the end of an era for his character in the current DC Universe. During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Momoa spoke about the conclusion of his journey with DC, saying, “this is kinda the end of this DC universe.” He followed this with an optimistic note, adding, “there will always be a place for me at DC.”

Amidst the changes in the DC Universe, there is growing speculation about Jason Momoa’s future roles, particularly the possibility of him portraying Lobo, the intergalactic DC Comics bounty hunter. Rumors have been circulating that Momoa could potentially debut as Lobo in the upcoming Superman: Legacy, marking a significant shift from his role as Aquaman.

Lobo first appeared in Omega Men #3 in June 1983. Created by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen, Lobo is an intergalactic bounty hunter known for his ruthless methods and unique anti-hero qualities. Over the years, he has become a fan-favorite for his unorthodox style and complex moral compass.

When will DC Studios announce Jason Momoa as Lobo?

As the entertainment industry rebounds from the recent Hollywood strikes, Jason Momoa is preparing to embark on the press tour for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. With Superman: Legacy gearing up for production in March 2024, the speculation surrounding Jason Momoa’s rumored role as Lobo in the DC Universe is expected to be addressed by DC Studios in the near future. His upcoming appearances could also shed light on what fans can expect from his continued involvement with DC Studios.

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.
