Jason Momoa has been fueling speculation as of late about his new role in the DC Universe and despite Aquaman becoming a box-office attraction for the franchise, it looks like the actor is ready to step down from the role to play another character in James Gunn and Peter Safran's reimagined DCU.
While all parties involved have yet to confirm anything, all signs point to the 43-year-old star leaving Atlantis for the cosmos to become Lobo, one of Superman's fiercest foes who would later gain a cult-like following amongst comic book fans.
Admittedly, Momoa has been wanting to take on the part for years and it turns out that he's a massive fan of the cosmic bounty hunter. To be fair, his version of Aquaman has already become a fan favorite but it's quite evident that Momoa is still adamant about becoming Lobo.
This week, the actor once again teased an announcement concerning his DCU tenure and many are convinced it has something to do with his reshuffled role in the franchise. As the Lobo casting speculations begin to intensify, Instagram artist @clements.ink unveiled an amazing artwork depicting Jason as "the main man". What do you think? Check it out here:

Personally, I'd have no issues with Momoa taking on the role but I do hope Gunn and Safran won't allow him to pull double duty and play both Aquaman and Lobo at the same time. If they're truly committed to rebuilding the DCU from the ground up, the most logical route is to start with a clean slate.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is slated for theatrical release on December 25, 2023.
