Jason Momoa's tenure as Aquaman in the DC Universe (DCU) has come to an end, thanks to the newly founded DC Studios.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, Momoa's next standalone film, will be a watershed moment for DC Studios, signaling the conclusion of the erstwhile DC Extended Universe (DCEU).
Following that film, new DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn will unveil his new slate of projects in a new DC Universe
which does not appear to include Momoa reprising her role as Aquaman or any other legacy hero.
According to a recent Variety rumor citing deleted scenes from Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom starring Amber Heard, Jason Momoa will no longer play Aquaman for DC Studios.
This is also true for other former DCEU actors such as Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill's Superman, Ben Affleck's Batman, and Ezra Miller's Flash.
Momoa, on the other hand, is apparently in talks with Gunn and colleagues to play the legendary DC antihero Lobo in a future movie.
Rumors said he may play this character as early as 2025 in Superman: Legacy, which cast its first two starring actors, David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan, in June.
