When Henry Cavill left the DCU following a huge comeback announcement, the fans were heartbroken and were waiting for the other films of the DC universe to come out. And one such film that the fans were eagerly waiting for was Jason Momoa and Amber Heard starrer Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The film was supposed to release in December this year, however, that does not seem to be the case now.
Apparently, it did not receive the expected appreciation at its test screenings. Hence, rumors are in the air that Jason Momoa might leave the Aquaman film franchise. Critics claim the recent sequel of the film as the “Worst DCU Movie Ever.” But the question remains, is Momoa leaving the DCU or is he just switching?

Rumors suggest that Aquaman’s sequel might be the last project of Momoa as the King of the Seven Seas. According to CBR, the actor said, “There’s a lot of cool things that are going to be coming up and one of my dreams come true will be happening under their watch, so stay tuned.”
After the 43-year-old actor said that speculation is being made that he might be working with DCU on yet another project that he has been dreaming of for years. The question is, what is it?

Unlike Henry Cavill, Momoa might stay and switch to another character in DCU
According to renowned film critic Jeff Sneider, DC Studios wants to work differently with Momoa because of how poorly the Aquaman sequel performed. As a result, speculation is that Momoa will continue to play Lobo in the DC Universe. Although the studio is holding off on announcing it just yet.
Lobo is yet another very famous character in the DC universe. Most importantly, Momoa has the exact looks and physique of this character. However, this is just a rumor, as James Gunn is the new helmsman of the DC Universe, and whether Momoa will play Lobo depends on him.
I hear it’s terrible and that’s why Momoa is gonna be Lobo going forward. But they can’t say that yet because then it would be a lame duck… and DC is hoping to wring another billion out of the box office. First one was awful too, so not a huge surprise. https://t.co/VlbUoqILDm
