Despite everything going on at DC lately, the seas of its cinematic universe remain Jason Momoa’s. The actor has recently said that he will always be Aquaman and there is no one to replace him. At least not soon.
Momoa revealed on Instagram that he met with new DC bosses Peter Safgran and James Gunn to discuss his future in the new cinematic universe they are planning. The meeting was, of course, the subject of great anticipation. Calculation. Ever since Gunn and Safran took over, living in the new DC universe they’re building has been a lottery. Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman And Patty Jenkins, and the new Batgirl movie are just three of the victims of this transition. With Cavill and Gadot gone, Batman was in the hands of another actor (Robert Paige).tinson) And the Flash movie is still in limbo, Many were wondering about the future of the other member of the Justice League.
Jason Momoa has been in charge of allaying these fears during an interview with Variety on the sidelines of the Sundance festival, where the actor is promoting the documentary Deep Rising, in which he serves as narrator. Momoa has clarified that he will continue to play Aquaman in upcoming DC films. In fact the next one (Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom) is scheduled for this year. If all goes well, it will premiere on Christmas 2023.
Momoa isn’t the only one who managed to side with Safran and Gunn (or whose presence entered their plans). Robert Pattinson will play the role of Batman. Joaquin Phoenix will continue in his special interpretation of the Joker, and there are indications that Margot Robbie may keep her role as Harley Quinn.
The funny thing about this is that Momoa could end up in more than one major role in the DC universe. There have been rumors for a few months now that the actor could be playing Lobo, a character that Momoa has admitted to being a fan of more than once, and certainly doesn’t even physically do. This would be the first time that an actor would bring life to more than one important character in this type of universe. Actress Alfre Woodard is one of these few examples. She made a small appearance in Captain America: Civil War before playing Maria Stokes in Luke Cage, but those are two minor roles. playing the two main characters of Momoa’s fame aquaman y Lobo being in the Marvel and DC universes at the same time so far would be completely unprecedented.
