AQUAMAN Star Jason Momoa Shares Excited Reaction Video After DC Studios Meeting AQUAMAN Star Jason Momoa Shares Excited Reaction Video After DC Studios Meeting

Yeah, he's totally playing Lobo! Aquaman star Jason Momoa has taken to Instagram to share his reaction after meeting with DC Studios co-CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran...

Back in November, shortly after we learned that James Gunn and Peter Safran would be taking over as DC Studios co-heads, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom star Jason Momoa shared an enthusiastic response to the news via Instagram.

The Dune actor spoke about being given the opportunity to work on a "dream project," and the trades would later confirm that there had been discussions about him possibly stepping into the role of Lobo.

Now, Momoa has posted another video to his Instagram stories, reacting to a meeting with DC/Warner Bros. Discovery that clearly went his way!

He stops just short of naming the project/character, but we'd be very surprised if he wasn't told that he'd be bringing life to the Main Man on the big screen!

There are other possibilities, of course, but Momoa has talked about his love for Lobo several times in the past, so based on this video, we'd say it's a fairly decent bet!

Where does that leave Aquaman? Well, it now seems clear that Gunn and Safran are planning a full reboot, which means either a new actor will be cast as Arthur Curry, or the character will be put on the shelf for a while after The Lost Kingdom

How would you guys feel about Momoa switching out Aquaman for Lobo in the DCU?

really lobo should be dc's deadpool not harley

@dracula - I’m not sure DC/WB can actually pull off Lobo. I can see him playing Bane.
Spawnnn - 1/20/2023, 7:32 AM
@JonAwesome - DC under Gunn can pull off Lobo on an easy mode and more.
JonAwesome - 1/20/2023, 8:18 AM
@Spawnnn - I think it’s a little premature to give them so much credit. Let’s see how it goes first. They have a huge undertaking to develop and it’s not an easy task. I’m hopeful.
Gizmoduck - 1/19/2023, 9:34 PM
all those years ago i thought he was getting cast as lobo as he looks like lobo without makeup.

but i wouldnt be mad if they keep him as aquaman, i think he has done a good job.

I'm calling it now.

Meet dcs new wonder woman!

Fully expecting Lobo to be the villain of the Superman reboot.

"To the future. To the future."

Booster Gold confirmed.
TheNewYorker - 1/19/2023, 9:39 PM
Cool. He’ll make a better hobo than aquaman. Not that I care for the character so, nothing to be excited about.
DudeGuy - 1/19/2023, 10:24 PM
@TheNewYorker -
Santanaonfire - 1/20/2023, 12:32 AM
@TheNewYorker - Fully agree! Perfect casting for hobo!

@Santanaonfire - LOOOL

Love Momoa, but I was never a fan of his Aquaman.
santoanderson - 1/19/2023, 9:43 PM
I wonder how DC/WB will address his playing a completely different character. Will they work it into the story? A la “Barry went back in time and [frick]ed everything up and now Aquaman is Lobo.” Or will the movies even address it? “Jason’s Lobo now. Stop asking questions. Deal with it.”

One thing’s for sure. The press junket for Aquaman 2 later this year is gonna be stupid.
eagc1995 - 1/20/2023, 12:02 AM
@santoanderson - Or maybe Lobo takes place in a different universe, thus no need to explain it.
ObserverIO - 1/20/2023, 4:41 AM
@santoanderson - You know how Ant Man and the Wasp came out after Infinity War, but the snap didn't happen until the credits?
Maybe the flashpoint happens in Aquaman 2's credits and we see Lobo for the first time.

At which point people talking about Lobo and getting excited for it will only add to the hype for the Aquaman sequel, because that's where Lobo first appears.

Lobo is a weird priority but it’s such a better fit for Jason Mamoa that I don’t mind it.
Urubrodi - 1/20/2023, 4:25 AM
@TheUnworthyThor - I think this is probably happening because James Gunn is in charge and because Momoa exists. Like the guy screams Lobo. If he wasn't around, don't think Lobo would be considered right now.
kazuma - 1/19/2023, 9:46 PM
Will this DCU also prioritize villains instead of the characters people actually want to see?
Urubrodi - 1/20/2023, 4:27 AM
@kazuma - You implying that people don't want to see Lobo? Cause you'd be wrong. Plus, he's no villain.
kazuma - 1/20/2023, 6:59 PM
@Urubrodi - Never said that. But are you implying people want to see Lobo over Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter and the rest of the Justice league, done well?|

Yes, it isn't official but I find it weird that the only thing we know about the DCU is that Jason Momoa will be Lobo.
yes yes it's a rumor that might not be real but cmon. I'm all for a Lobo movie and Momoa is definitely the guy for it, but I don't want another DC universe that relies so heavily on its villains.
ModHaterSLADE - 1/19/2023, 9:49 PM
I mean that's just no brainer casting for Lobo. Even his take on Aquaman was like Lobo imitating the character for the most part.
ReverseFlasher - 1/19/2023, 9:53 PM
My guess: theyre gonna do a version of superman man of tomorrow .

Gunn already said young superman, and Momoas reaction has to be for something big and something soon, so that seems to make the most sense to me.

They probably also told him Lobo will be a bridge character for a lot of the extraterrestrial stuff, like guardians were for marvel.
ReverseFlasher - 1/19/2023, 9:55 PM
@ReverseFlasher - (and thus be in a lot of different properties/films and shows)

Screwed out of the role I was born to play again.

Floke - 1/20/2023, 1:29 AM
@DocSpock - There is always an alternative
DocSpock - 1/20/2023, 11:19 AM
@Floke -

The annoying kid from down the street looked like that on his milk carton photo.

Kozmik - 1/19/2023, 10:14 PM
Jason Momoa looks virtually identical to Lobo, so why was he cast as Aquaman again?
ScaryTerry - 1/19/2023, 11:21 PM
@Kozmik - Snyder did A LOT of drugs! Like a metric [frick]ton!
Kozmik - 1/27/2023, 3:13 PM
@ScaryTerry - I don't know anything about that, though Zach Snyder definitely had an eye for the dudes.
