Unlike Dwayne Johnson & Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa Is Forwarding in DCU With “Good News”

Published 01/21/2023, 8:00 AM EST

The omnipresent narrative of DC not having as many bangers and surprises should be canceled, not only because both the universes are a separate league of their own but because DC is pretty good at giving really bad surprises. James Gunn and Peter Safran deciding to hold on to Ezra Miller while letting go of Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, and Dwayne Johnson was really not the unpredictable plot that fans were asking for. However, there is one big name that did not get the pass to board the ship exiting the DC universe through the ‘fan tears’ sea. And it is none other than our beloved Aquaman Jason Momoa.

The actor’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will be the last farewell to the old regime. But even before fans could speculate about him joining another big franchise, Jason Momoa has talked about the unfathomable: a bright future in James Gunn’s DC. And while this is an amazing feat in itself, the actor did not reveal anything about his new project.

Jason Momoa professes his love for James Gunn

As many actors penned down an emotional note bidding goodbye to DC and their characters, Jason Momoa was also penning down an emotional note, but for very different reasons. The actor has another DC project waiting for him in James Gunn and Peter Safran’s universe. “Peter, I love you, James, I love you. David. Okay. To the future, to the future,” Momoa wrote on his Instagram story.


This is probably the second official announcement entailing any information about future DC projects. The first one being James Gunn’s tweet about scripting a young Superman movie.

What exactly is the bright future?

The actor, as excited as he was after securing the project, did not let slip any details about it besides, of course, him leading it. But looking deeper into a 2022 interview with CBR, fans think they know exactly what it is.

It’s definitely something I’ve collected my whole life. So, for all the fans who know me will know that I collect this comic book the most.” Momoa said. And fans who know him are aware of the cigar-smoking antihero Lobo having a chokehold on the Aquaman actor.

Moreover, Gunn and Safran have also hinted at bringing Lobo to the forefront in the future. However, there has been no official announcement from Gunn and Safran themselves. And fans are already getting Deja Vu.
