Actor Jason Momoa has quite a few projects to his name that speak for his brilliant acting skills. While he had already made his presence known with projects like Game of Thrones and Baywatch, it was really Aquaman that made him truly known to the entire world. Jason Momoa has already created a legacy in the DCU with his half-human half-Atlantean character. Now, he is all ready to begin his dream DC project.
Recently, Jason Momoa teased his fans through Instagram that one of the biggest news of his life had just happened, revealing nothing more except a mysterious someone. Well, this cryptic message led fans to turn the wheels of their mind and come up with the thought that the mysterious name belongs to none other than the fan-favorite director, Zack Snyder.
Jason Momoa and Zack Snyder – The Next Dream Team?
On November 6, Jason Momoa took to Instagram to share some good news with his fans. He uploaded a story where he stated that “one of the big news just happened.” Without explaining further he sent his love to a never heard before name, Maestro, which fans assumed to be Zack Snyder.
However, in conversation with CinemaBlend’s Sean O’Connell, Momoa set the record straight. He confirmed that the person he mentioned on his Instagram story was in fact, not Snyder. The Aquaman actor teased the fans yet again, just two days later. In an interview with ET Canada, he stated he was quite excited to have James Gunn and Peter Safran taking charge of DC. He added that one of his “dreams come true will be happening under their watch.”
During his conversation with O’Connell, he not only dispersed rumors about him working with Snyder, but he also revealed that the two teases were about two completely different projects.
“Those two have no relation. It was two days of amazing news. That one is like beyond, that one trumps the DC one. You have to dig deeper. It’s the Holy Grail. And it’s different than the DC thing. And I really can’t say anything. That’s it.”
Is Momoa’s DC dream project supposedly a standalone universe, just like Batman, or is it something else? All that can be done now is speculate and wait for official statements. While both teased projects are Momoa’s dreams coming true, it looks like when it comes to which is of more importance to the actor, the non-DC one takes the cake.
Lobo to Make an Entry into the DCU?
Even though the rumors around Snyder’s return were brought to an end by Momoa, fans had previously thought the director would be returning to work on a Lobo-centric movie with the actor. These rumors came into existence as Momoa posting his secret story and Gunn sharing a photo of Lobo happened almost simultaneously.
Now, since the rumors were shut down, it’s exciting to think about if the shared photo had meaning to it or not. The question is, if Lobo is the next character coming to the DCU or not, and if he is, then who would take on the project?
While Momoa has been a fan of Lobo for a long time and people speculated he would play the character, it simply doesn’t fit. How can he be both Aquaman and Lobo in the same universe? He, however, had previously wished to see Lobo as a villain in the Aquaman sequel.
One person who does want to play Lobo though, is The Walking Dead actor, Jeffrey Dean Morgan. He stated that if there’s one character he would love to play, it’s Lobo.
“He’s a badass. Lobo would be very cool. I don’t think that I’m as big as Lobo is, but if you could transplant Mickey Rourke’s body on my head, that would be just great,”
Well, for now, only time will tell what Momoa’s dream projects are and if Gunn was serious when he shared that photo on social media. The DCU is certainly ready to take things to next level, after all!
