Jason Momoa teases Lobo's entry to DCEU
Originating from the utopian planet of Czarnia, Lobo is a bounty hunter and interstellar mercenary
With DC Studios replacing DC Films, and James Gunn and Peter Safran taking over from Walter Hamada as the CEO of the studio, exciting plans seem to lie ahead. The excitement seems to be reposed primarily in Justice League actor, Jason Momoa with the actor saying that the new management is making his dreams come true. Soon after those comments, DC Studios co-head, Gunn posted his first post on the social media platform Mastodon – a photo of the DC bounty hunter, Lobo.
The timing of the post and the comments have sent some fans into a frenzy. Could Momoa be playing Lobo? Wel, While speaking to media ahead of the release of Slumberland, the actor teased the audience with his response. "I hold Lobo dear to me. Well, everyone knows I'm a comic book fan. The comic I collected the most, and I have every comic there is... you can do your research and find out what it is."
Lobo is a character in DC Comics that can be referred to as an anti-hero/anti-villain. Originating from the utopian planet of Czarnia, Lobo is a bounty hunter and interstellar mercenary. Pinning him as a hero or villain is difficult, as he has fought against and alongside superheroes like the Man of Steel, Superman.
We are yet to have any official word from those like Gunn and Safran who could make it happen, but for the time at least, it seems Momoa will have some hand in the next project involving the character, be it a series or as a feature film. The bigger challenge and question, however, is will he be playing Aquaman and Lobo in the same universe? Gemma Chan portrayal of Minerva in Captain Marvel and Sersi in Eternals is one such example.
