Jason Momoa revealed that he will always play the Aquaman character in the DC films while speaking at the Variety Studio presented by Audible at Sundance Festival.
Momoa was at the festival as the narrator of his new documentary Deep Rising, which investigates organisations extracting metals from the deep seafloor.
Momoa recently met new DC Studio heads James Gunn and Peter Safran to talk about his future in the DC Universe. It may be noted that he’s played Aquaman in several DC films.
According to Variety, Momoa said that the meeting was wonderful. “I’m in the house of Warner Bros. and they are liking a lot of stuff I’m doing. We got a lot of good things coming.”
There are speculations that Momoa will be playing a different superhero character, Lobo, in the new DC universe under Gunn and Safran. But he did not confirm it. “I’ll always be Aquaman. Ain’t anyone coming in there and taking a shit. There might be some other characters, too. I can play other things, too. I can be funny and savage and charming.”
The climate change themes inherited in the Aquaman movies tie directly to Momoa’s Sundance documentary Deep Rising. The actor said he’s open to participating in more environmental films.
