Momoa‘s next solo movie Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will be a milestone moment for DC Studios as it marks the official end of the former DC Extended Universe (DCEU).
Following that film, new DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn will bring forth his new slate of projects in a fresh DCU, which doesn’t appear to include Momoa playing Aquaman or any other legacy hero back again.
DC Finished with Jason Momoa as Aquaman
However, the situation is different for Momoa, as he’s reportedly entered talks with Gunn and company to play the famous DC antihero Lobo in a future project.
Will Jason Momoa Return to the DCU?
He’s spoken cryptically about not being finished with the DCU and he’s been fairly blatant about the fact in other public appearances, making it almost inevitable that he will be back at some point.
For the time being, Superman: Legacy is waiting to get its production started until the actor’s strike comes to an end, and Gunn still has work to do in casting other major characters outside of Lobo.
And with Safran already hinting that Momoa has a future under the new DC banner, many fans feel that it is only a matter of time until his new role becomes a sure thing.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will debut in theaters on December 20.
