Jason Momoa’s filmography is one that shows a star aiming for the skies. From his appearance in Game of Thrones, playing DC superhero Aquaman, to landing the high-profile antagonist role in Fast X, the Hawaii-born star is well on track to becoming a mainstay in Hollywood blockbusters. Despite Aquaman faring better with audiences than with critics, Momoa’s charisma and physicality ensured that his presence in the film and the DCU will be remembered.
DC CEO Peter Safran, who took over the franchise along with James Gunn, is one of Momoa’s loyal supporters and has endorsed the actor on several occasions. Safran also cleared the air about rumors that Jason Momoa might be cast as another prominent superhero from DC comics.
Peter Safran is Jason Momoa’s Fanboy
DCU CEO Peter Safran has high words of praise for Jason Momoa and is a self-proclaimed fan of the Aquaman star’s discipline and work ethic. Safran, in a prior interview, gushed about Momoa and his professionalism, saying,
“What you see is what you get with Jason. I have been working with him for six or seven years, and I keep waiting for the proverbial other shoe to drop. If there is an inner asshole in him, it has never come out.”
Speaking of Momoa’s future as Aquaman and the possibility of the star taking on another role, Safran added,
“I look forward to working with Jason for many years to come. I would be happy for it to be in Arthur Curry’s world, but if/when another opportunity came up, I’d find another great character for him to create.”
The “other” character that Safran was possibly referring to is speculated to be Lobo, the intergalactic bounty hunter who appears in DC Comics. But Safran, along with his professional partner and co-head of DC, James Gunn have already put an end to the rumors by clearly stating that Jason Momoa will not be considered to play any other DC superhero while he continues his journey as Aquaman.

Apart from being a Hollywood celebrity, Jason Momoa is also an eco-activist who is passionate about preserving and protecting the environment. Coincidentally, his film Aquaman’s larger message about ecological conservation has been instrumental in the star becoming a crusader for the world. Speaking of being a role model for the next generation and the impact of his superhero status, Momoa said,
“It’s my kids’ generation, and they’re looking up to me, going like, ‘You’re Aquaman, you’re Aquaman. That’s really cool to me—it really is”
Jason Momoa has also been a fierce advocate for the eradication of plastic and has gone on record to speak about the dangers it poses to the environment. The Game Of Thrones star also used United Nations as a platform to talk about climate change and to encourage people to ban single-use plastics.
