Despite doubtful comments made by Jason Momoa recently regarding the future of Aquaman, DC Studios boss Peter Safran spoke to The Independent about how he hopes the franchise and Momoa’s character will unfold.

While both Momoa and Safran are waiting to see how fans respond to Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, Safran also told the publication that no matter what happens Momoa will always be part of the DC and Warner Bros. family. He said, “When I think of Jason in this role, he is the definitive Aquaman. He’s redefined it. It’s been an 11 or 12 year journey for him — a lot of the audience doesn’t realize that he was cast so long ago. It’s kind of redefined him. When he took this role he was known as Khal Drogo, and now he’s really Aquaman.” He added, “What I hope is that people will really be here to support him on this journey. If it’s the end of the journey, fine. If it goes on, that’s also fine, but I think it has meant so much to him. The way [director] James [Wan] crafted this second film, it feels like a very complete story when you watch the two films together. We’ll see what happens with him beyond it. I know that Jason will always have a home at DC, and at Warner Bros. In fact, his next movie is ‘Minecraft.’”

The original Aquaman pulled in $1 billion USD at the box office, making it the highest grossing DCEU film. If the sequel garners as much attention, it may just warrant a third film. Safran now leads DC Studios with James Gunn and are focused on rebooting the DC Universe. First of their projects is the 2025 release of Superman: Legacy which Gunn is writing and directing.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is out this weekend.
