The DCEU did not get the best of starts after the disappointing reviews for Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman: Dawn of War. Things were not going well for the franchise up until that point, but it got better after 2018’s Aquaman was released. Interestingly enough, four DC movies seem to have been excluded from Netflix USA – three of which had Jason Momoa.
Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa, truly blew everything DCEU had made out of the water at that point, as it was a success when it came to reviews as well as the Box Office – earning more than $1 billion at the Box Office. Therefore, it is safe to say Jason Momoa is an integral part of the DCEU in every way.
Three Jason Momoa Movies Have Been Excluded From Netflix USA
As previously noted, Jason Momoa has been a major draw for the DCEU over the past few years. That being said, the DC live action films are already undergoing a huge change, especially due to the DCEU no longer being a thing – replaced by the DCU headed by James Gunn.
As pointed out by the Home of DU Twitter account, The Batman and the whole DCEU has been added to Netflix USA. However, Aquaman, Justice League, The Flash, Blue Beetle were not added for some reason. This is especially perplexing considering Momoa has another DC movie coming out very soon, but fans might get to see these movies included in the future.
What’s Next For Jason Momoa?
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is the sequel to the highly successful Aquaman and fans are definitely excited for it, which will see Jason Momoa take on the role of Aquaman once again – as he is set to face his biggest challenge yet against Black Manta and others.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to open in theaters worldwide beginning December 22nd. We will have to wait and see whether the film helps the DCU out in a big way, as the franchise sorely needs a hit right now.
