With DC’s Aquaman now joining the success list at the worldwide box office, all the fans are starting to speculate about the direction of a possible sequel.
In a very recent interview, the actor, Jason Momoa had been asked which a few DC character that he would like to see making an appearance in the sequel. While the actor had suggested Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and The Flash (Ezra Miller), his new answer had been a bit little unexpected.
“Lobo.” Momoa had said.
“Yeah, a villain.”
There is an irony to this, seeing as Jason Momoa himself had been associated with Lobo when he was rumoured to step foot into the DCEU.
“I couldn’t even be more random for Aquaman, you know, with the blonde hair,” Momoa had said.
“I don’t even know where that comes from; it’s like me being… uh… Robin or something. Who pulls that out? I see that on the Internet, and I’m like, ‘Aquaman? A guy like… Lobo I could see.”
There is a question of how the Czarnian will actually make his way into the sequel movie of Aquaman, but nothing has really felt off-limits with this out-of-the-box character. Lobo has been poised to make an official live-action debut by this year when Emmett J. Scanlan will play the character on Krypton.
Even if Lobo does not actually factor into the sequel film, it seems like Jason Momoa has a few ideas of where this may lead.
“I definitely have an opinion,” Jason Momoa said.
“Even when we were shooting Aquaman, I have the opening of Aquaman 2 ready. I went in and pitched it to [producer Peter] Safran, and I pitched it to [Warner Bros. chairman] Toby Emmerich. They loved it. It’s awesome…But yeah, I have plans for Aquaman 2.”
“There’s definitely stories, even within the world we’ve created, that you can actually see other storylines [spinning off from] as well,” James Wan said.
“There’s the Aquaman story, but then there’s the stories of the seven different kingdoms as well. I think those would be very fun to explore.”
Aquaman is now showing in theatres now. Upcoming DC films include Shazam on April 5, 2019, Joker on October 10, 2019, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020.
