Aquaman star Jason Momoa is teasing his DC Studios future.
Jason Momoa is currently at the Sundance film festival to promote his work as the narrator of the new documentary Deep Rising. During a conversation with Variety, Momoa opened up about one of his recent meetings with Warner Bros. Discovery’s David Zaslav and DC Studios heads James Gunn and Peter Safran, who are working on a multi-year plan for the DC Universe.
“It’s very, very wonderful,” Momoa teased. “I’m in the house of Warner Bros. and they are liking a lot of stuff I’m doing. We got a lot of good things coming.”
With Henry Cavill’s Superman and Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam no longer in the DC Universe, Jason Momoa assured fans that he is still attached to the role of Arthur Curry, a.k.a. Aquaman. However, Momoa also hinted that he could play multiple DC Comics characters down the line, adding credence to the rumors that he is up for the role of Lobo.
“I’ll always be Aquaman,” Momoa said. “Ain’t anyone coming in there and taking shit. There might be some other characters, too. I can play other things, too. I can be funny and savage and charming.”
For now, Jason Momoa is reprising his role as Arthur Curry in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, which arrives in theaters this December. Meanwhile, James Gunn and Peter Safran are expected to present the first chapter of their DC Universe roadmap later this month.
A new era for the DC Universe
James Gunn and Peter Safran are 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. Gunn is said to be focusing on the creative direction of the DCU while Safran is handling things that are related to business and production.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods, The Flash, Blue Beetle and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom are currently in various stages of post-production at Warner Bros. Discovery, with all four DC Universe movies slated to hit theaters in 2023. Will the characters from those movies make appearances in the new DCU? Only Gunn and Safran know.
