At a recent appearance on the Jimmy Fallon show, the actor talked about his upcoming movie, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. With the new vision of the DCU, the character has been in jeopardy. Reacting to the same Jason Momoa said the sequel will mark the end for his Arthur Curry as he said, “This is the end of the DCEU,” and he jokingly added, “But this isn’t the end for me at DC, they like me.” The actor seemingly teased about Lobo, which he has talked about many times and the rumors have been high that the actor might be recast for another superhero character in the James Gunn-led universe. 

The report about his recasting after his tenure as Aquaman ends has set the comic book world abuzz with excitement and anticipation. However, there has been no official confirmation about the same. As his Aquaman character brought a breath of fresh air and loads of money to the DCEU, the studio would not let an actor like Momoa go away like this.
