The ubiquitous narrative that there aren’t many shocks and surprises in DC should be canceled, not only because both universes are a separate league, but also because DC is pretty good at delivering really bad surprises. James Gunn and Peter Safran, who decided to keep Ezra Miller by releasing Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson, were not really the unpredictable plot that fans were asking for. However, there is one big name who did not get a pass on board the ship leaving the DC universe through a sea of “fan tears”. And this is none other than our beloved Aquaman Jason Momoa.

“Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” by the actor will be the last farewell to the old regime. But even before fans had time to assume that he would join another major franchise, Jason Momoa started talking about the unfathomable: a bright future in James Gunn’s DC. And although this in itself is an amazing achievement, the actor did not say anything about his new project.
Jason Momoa confesses his love for James Gunn
Like many actors wrote an emotional note saying goodbye to DC and their characters, Jason Momoa also wrote an emotional note, but for completely different reasons. The actor is waiting for another DC project in the universe of James Gunn and Peter Safran. “Peter, I love you, James, I love you. David. Good. Into the future, into the future,” Momoa wrote in his Instagram story.

This is probably the second official announcement, entailing any information about future DC projects. The first of them was James Gunn’s tweet about writing a movie script about a young Superman.
What is a bright future?
The actor, no matter how excited he was after he received the project, did not miss any details about it, except, of course, that he is leading it. But by studying the CBR 2022 interview, fans think they know exactly what it is.
“It’s definitely something I’ve been collecting all my life. So for all the fans who know me, it will be known that I collect this comic the most.” Momoa said. And fans who know him know about the cigar-smoking antihero Lobo, who strangles the actor Aquaman.

Moreover, Gunn and Safran also hinted that Lobo would come to the fore in the future. However, there was no official statement from Gunn and Safran themselves. And fans are already getting Deja Vu.
