Jason Momoa Addresses His Aquaman Future in DCU's New Era

As everyone waits on the DC slate that James Gunn and Peter Safran are expected to announce this month, the future of major characters played by fan favorites is subject to assurance. With DC Studios dropping big stars such as Henry Cavill as Superman in the upcoming projects, Jason Momoa gave an update on whether he’s here to stay as DCU’s Aquaman.

In an interview with Variety, Aquaman's star discussed what his future looks like with the DC Universe given that the franchise will go through a full revamp. “I’ll always be Aquaman,” emphasized Momoa. “The rumors are… I’ll always be Aquaman. Ain’t anyone coming in there and taking sh-t. And then, there might be some other characters too. I can play other things too. I can be funny and savage and charming, once in a while.”

Despite not confirming if he would continue to be Arthur Curry, Momoa gave a hopeful assurance that he might inhabit other DC characters in the future, affirming his presence in DC Studios despite the massive shakeup it continues to go through.

According to the Slumberland star, he recently met new DC Studio heads, and there are exciting things that fans can expect from him and the studios. “It was very very wonderful,” Momoa said. “I’m in the house of Warner Bros., and they’re liking a lot of stuff I’m doing. We’ve got a lot of good things coming.”

Momoa’s statement that he will always be Aquaman could also mean the same thing as Christopher Reeve will always be Superman or Sean Connery will always be James Bond, meaning it’s a role that they will always bring with them given the impact it brought to them as actors. However, they could always play different characters; in Momoa's case, given that he fits the character description, he could also end up playing DCU's Lobo.

Even if fans aren't sure if the See actor will continue to play the Protector of the Deep, they now know that Momoa will be joining Joaquin Phoenix, Robert Pattinson, and (possibly) Margot Robbie in whatever DC films come out in the next few years under the new management.
