DC's Lobo Project Is Reportedly in Active Development

Jason Momoa’s DC tenure may recognize him as the main hero in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, but since last year, the 43-year-old actor has been hinting on jumping to a new role within the franchise: Lobo, the cosmic bounty hunter/enemy of Superman and the Green Lantern Corps. While Momoa and DC Studios have yet to confirm this casting, DC’s Lobo project does have an update!

According to reliable scooper @CanWeGetSomeToast on Twitter, while Lobo was not mentioned on James Gunn’s new DCU slate Chapter One: Gods & Monsters, DC’s Lobo project is currently in developed. Check out the tweet below:

Lobo wasn’t mentioned in Gunn’s revealed 2025 DCU slate. Interestingly, though, this opens up to many possibilities as to where we could find Lobo’s debut. Seeing as Lobo is one of Superman’s fiercest foes, Lobo could potentially show up in Superman: Legacy. This goes well with the scooper’s statement: “there is a project WITH Lobo.”

As for confirmation on Jason Momoa’s official transfer from being DC’s Aquaman to Lobo, the only thing we could hold about his potential casting is from when the actor shared to his Instagram story “great news” that he received from Warner Bros.

While the actor did not elaborate exactly on what the “great news” is about, his video had a caption WB DC, along as he spouts the words, “I wish I could tell you, but here it is. Peter [Safran], I love you! James [Gunn], I love you! David [Zaslav]... to the future, to the future!” which clearly indicates his long-speculated jump to becoming the cosmic bounty hunter!

Seeing how badly the actor has been dreaming of claiming the role, and his constant teasing about his DC future, it seems more likely than ever that he’s becoming DC’s Lobo. Unfortunately, for now, we’d have to wait until an official announcement from Gunn and Safran for further details and confirmation.

DC’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is slated for release on December 25, 2023, while Superman: Legacy is set to premiere in theaters on July 11, 2025.
