David Zaslav, the new CEO of Warner Discovery had begun his restructuring of the major by canceling as many films and series as possible to fix a billion dollar hole. When duo James Gunn and Peter Safran were named presidents of DC Studios they were seen as the saviors of the DC Comics film and television universe, but their first act was to fire Henry Cavill shortly after announcing his return to the role of Superman. The reason? Gunn is writing and then directing a new chapter dedicated to Clark Kent, however set in his early years in Metropolis and the Daily Planet, in short, a cinematic sequel to Smallville.
Change of universe
Thus, since no one is safe in the Warner / DC house yesterday the site Giantfreakinrobot reported a piece of news (yes, from their source inside the production) that would blow a hole ahead in the DC universe. According to the site Jason Momoa would be in final negotiations for a starring role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There is obviously no further information given the lack of official confirmation from the Disney/Marvel duo which, if they happen, will be done in a big way, but this is representative of how little reliance the current protagonists of the DC saga are making on their future. this despite the former Aquaman (2018) has grossed 1.14 billion dollars and that on December 25th of this year will arrive Aquaman and the lost kingdom.
Futures to discover
At the moment James Gunn has stated that the only actress not at risk is Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller will only be needed again for the launch of The Flash (June 16, 2023) film that will serve as a reboot of the entire universe and which will see the appearance of both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton in their respective Batman. But as far as Zachary Levy (who also said he is confident), there is no confirmation on his future beyond the next Shazam! Fury of the gods (July 1, 2023), which is why it’s understandable that Jason Momoa is looking for more stable universes. The site has no information on the character he could play although speculates that he could play Ben Grimm / The Thing in the future Fantastic Four (February 14, 2025), but it’s just their idea.
Waiting to find out if Jason Momoa will make the leap into the Marvel multiverse, which character for you would be more suitable for the former king of the oceans?
