Jason Momoa teases his future with the DC Universe, saying he’ll always be Aquaman and no one will come in and take him on.
While James Gunn and Peter Safran haven’t revealed their complete plans for the DC Universe, it’s clear that we’ve seen the last of certain actors in DC roles. One actor that seems to be sticking around is Jason Momoa, who has played Aquaman in various DC movies… but will he continue playing the role?
While talking to VarietyJason Momoa referenced his last meeting with DC Studios. “It was very amazing,Momoa said. “I’m at home with Warner Bros. and they like a lot of the stuff I do. We have many good things coming.” Momoa then commented on rumors that he will be recast as Aquaman after the release of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. “I will always be Aquaman,Momoa added. “Rumors are… I’ll always be Aquaman. Isn’t there someone who comes in and takes the sh-t. And then there might be some other characters as well. I can play other things too. I can be funny and wild and charming once in a while.“
Jason Momoa could just say that he will always be Aquaman in the same way that Christopher Reeve will always be Superman or Sean Connery will always be James Bond; it’s a seminal role that will stay with him throughout his career. There have also been frequent rumors, fueled by Momoa himself, that the actor will play Lobo in the new DC Universe, and “fun, wild and charming” fits the bill for Lobo. The actor was certainly pretty excited after meeting James Gunn and Peter Safran, saying that he “got some really good news” about his future with the studio.
In addition to Jason Momoa as Aquaman, the upcoming Aquaman the sequel also stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Patrick Wilson as Orm, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus and Amber Heard as Mera. We don’t know too much about the film, only that it will find Aquaman forming an uneasy alliance with an unlikely ally in an attempt to save Atlantis and the rest of the planet. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom coming to the cinema December 25.
Do you think we’ll see more of Jason Momoa as Aquaman?
