While we all sit waiting for James Gunn to reveal the first stage of his and Peter Safran’s plan for the DCEU’s future, it seems that Aquaman star Jason Momoa has been given some news and believes that it’s good news for the fans.

While we know that Henry Cavill is no longer Superman and Ben Affleck is likely out as Batman (here), we’re wondering what is next for Momoa as word seemed to be that he was done as Aquaman after Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom this Christmas but might be set to return as Lobo (here) as the DCEU reboots/restarts/enters next stage/whatever.

However, while he reveals nothing, Momoa has revealed on Instagram (below) that he has been at Warner Bros and has been given details on where DC goes next and it’s ‘good news’.

“Four years ago, I had the jeep out front… Y’all remember four years ago? I was screaming, wasn’t I? … Screaming when I left Warner Bros. Everybody ready? YAHOO! Four years again. It’s a mystery, baby… I’ve got some really good news. Great news with Warner Bros. Amazing,” the star says.

Watch Momoa’s Instagram story here.

“Wish I could tell you, but here it is. Peter, I love you. James, I love you. David. Okay. To the future, to the future.”

These people are DC Studios’ co-CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran and Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav.

What Momoa has learned, we have no idea, but with the word being that Gunn will be giving fans a look at the plans for the next few years of DC content in the coming weeks, we may see what has him excited pretty soon.

But honestly, if it doesn’t involve the return of Cavill and Affleck, the audience is going to be a tough one to win over.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
