Jason Momoa’s Future in the DC Universe Sounds Very Bright

For those of you wondering— and worrying—about Jason Momoa’s future with DC in light of all the recent news and shakeups, the man himself is here to put you at ease.

As you’re no doubt aware by now, the new co-chairs of DC Studios are Guardians of the Galaxy and The Suicide Squad writer/director James Gunn and producer Peter Safran. They took over the studio with the goal of getting all of the stories that DC tells across film, television, and even video games, into a single, cohesive universe. That has meant some tough decisions and major changes, including going in a new direction with a younger Superman (so no more Henry Cavill) and putting the brakes on Wonder Woman 3. So, it was reasonable to wonder where this left Jason Momoa, who has his Aquaman sequel, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, due out this Christmas. Would Gunn and Safran decide to move away from Aquaman, and Momoa, and go in a new direction? Would Momoa be recast in a new role (like Lobo)? Or would Momoa’s time as Aquaman continue?

Well, Momoa seems to feel very good about his future at DC, as he shared some news after leaving Warner Bros. with One Media. In a video, Momoa talks about how it was four years ago when he left Warner Bros. feeling on top of the world (about Aquaman, presumably), and here he is, leaving the studio, feeling on top of the world again. Momoa says he has “great news” to share about his future in the DC universe and even lets loose a joyous scream.

If you’re hoping Momoa goes into detail on what, exactly, that news is, well, you’re outta luck. But, from the sound of it, Jason Momoa isn’t leaving DC, and whatever his specific future is, he’s excited about it. Check out the video below:

While we wait to hear more details on Momoa’s future in the DC Universe, we’ll be seeing him soon enough in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, which hits theaters on December 25.
