It looks like James Gunn and Peter Safran are pulling a major surprise for the DC Universe and it just might involve Aquaman actor Jason Momoa. In case you haven't been keeping up with the latest news about the rebranded film and television franchise, Gunn and Momoa's recent social media activity has sparked speculation that the 43-year-old actor will be taking on a brand new character in the DC — the beloved anti-hero Lobo.

It all began when Gunn posted a no-context image of the character on his Mastodon page which immediately created a ton of buzz online. This was followed up by Momoa seemingly confirming that his "dream" DCU project is actually connected to the DC Studios co-head's tease.

As the rumor mill continues to spin rapidly, Australian digital artist Boss Logic is joining the DCU hype, unveiling his amazing artwork depicting Momoa as the interstellar mercenary and oftentimes thorn on the Man of Steel's side. If anything, it seems to prove that Momoa has been cast in the wrong role all this time. Check it out here:

With all the Lobo rumors suddenly floating around social media, Momoa's Aquaman future has been put in question. Some argue that the actor can pull double duty and play both roles simultaneously but I personally think that's too big of a risk for Gunn and Safran to take.

It's worth noting though that The Flash will hit the reset button on the DCU and if that's the case, Momoa leaving his Arthur Curry role to become Lobo might just become a possibility. One thing's for certain, this is the most intriguing the DCU has been since its inception.
