DC Studios is currently preparing to reveal its big plans for the future, and it appears Aquaman star Jason Momoa might actually be part of them. In a recent post to social media, the lovable heartthrob documented himself leaving a meeting at Warner Bros., shouting in excitement and claiming he had just received “really good news”. The actor stated the reason behind his elation was still a DC Studios secret but hinted strongly that it was about his next few years with the company. Before closing out the video, Momoa went on to thank studio heads James Gunn and Peter Safran, as well as Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav, for whatever they had just discussed.
After debuting as the character in a 2016 Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice cameo appearance, Momoa went on to portray the King of Atlantis in both versions of Justice League, both Aquaman solo films, and the television series Peacemaker. When news broke that Gunn and Safran planned to scrap the current DC Extended Universe and restart with their own cinematic world, however, it seemed Momoa‘s tenure as Aquaman had come to an end. Some reports claimed Gunn wanted the one-time Conan the Barbarian lead to stick around as another character, the intergalactic mercenary Lobo, but no official word ever dropped regarding the actor’s future with DC. Now, it seems he’s in it for the long run. What role he will play, though, remains a mystery.
