Following the ending of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, Screen Rant recently interviewed Momoa about his new documentary series, On the Roam, which is coming January 18 to Max. While promoting his latest project, Momoa was asked, 'You’ve gotten knives made for See from artists Richard Baggett, Terry Shanks, and Neil Kamimura.

However, despite this being a perfect fit for Momoa, the Aquaman actor is not officially locked in as Lobo at this point. It is possible that Momoa and DC Studios haven't formalized a deal yet or that they are waiting for some time to pass after Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom before announcing his new role in the DC Universe. Time will tell if Lobo is even on the table for him or if there is another character that Momoa will end up getting cast as in Gunn's DC Universe.

The Future of Momoa's Role in the DC Universe

Back in 2019, the Krypton TV show almost had a Lobo spin-off series on SYFY after the character's introduction in season 2. For the time being, as Gunn is getting ready to start filming Superman: Legacy, it might be a while before DC Studios reveal Momoa's DC Universe future. But given that he is the only Justice League actor to return from the DCEU, it says a lot about DC Studios still wanting to work with him. But for now, the world will have to wait and see how Momoa will factor into Gunn's DC Universe in the coming years.
