Jason Momoa seems to have confirmed his future as Aquaman following the reshuffling of James Gunn and Peter Safran at DC Studios.
His Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is due out this December, and according to Momoa, there’s a lot more to come.
In an interview with Deadline, Momoa said, “I love it [James] Gunn, so there’s going to be some really cool stuff [that] they will do with DC. I will definitely be in more than one.”
“I get to play a few different ones [roles],” he added. “I’ve seen other actors do it. yeah I want to shoot.”
Speaking of his future in DC Warner Bros. universe, Momoa said, “We have a special bond. Warner Bros is home. There are many things we will do there. I wish I could say more. “
“I will always be Aquaman and there will be a lot of evolution to that. So I’m not going anywhere and it’s very interesting,” he added.
In a separate interview with Variety, Momoa teased that “there’s going to be a lot of good stuff.”
“I will always be Aquaman. The rumors are not true. Nobody goes in there and does shit.

This happened after Henry Cavill was eliminated from the role of Superman, and many projects were canceled or delayed after James Gunn and Peter Safran took over the DC universe last October.
“Wonder Woman 3” was also delayed at the studio and Dwayne Johnson confirmed that they have no plans for a sequel to “Black Adam” in the “first chapter” of DC.
However, Zachary Levy has denied rumors that the role of Shazam will be recast.
Gunn recently responded to the backlash surrounding some of the decisions, saying that “a certain minority of people online” are “violent and unkind.”
“Our choice for DCU is based on what we believe is best for the story and best for the DC characters that have been around for almost 85 years,” Gunn wrote. “Maybe it’s a great choice, maybe it’s not, but it’s made with genuine heart and honesty and always with the story in mind.”
