With fans being concerned about Aquaman’s future in the universe, actor Jason Momoa has different views. The actor previously talked about Aquaman in an interview with Total Film magazine,
“Peter [Safran]’s my producer [on Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom], and is a dear friend. I absolutely think Aquaman will be involved in the DCU. It’s on, bro – there’s no one bigger than Aquaman! But, also, I hope people are excited to see the new one. It’s fun. I really enjoy doing comedy. There’s some really funny stuff with Patrick Wilson. I really adore him. We had a great time working together. It’s like we’re brothers. There’s a lot of cool stuff happening in this one.”
Jason Momoa believes that “no one is bigger than Aquaman” and is positive that Aquaman will play a major role in the universe in the future.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom‘s test screenings were a disaster
In February 2023, the test screenings of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom took place in several theatres. It was a complete disaster as people walked out of the theatres mainly because it was “missing a lot of material.” However, the creators still have time to fix all those things as the release date is quite far.
The expectations are quite high as the first Aquaman movie grossed $335.1 million in the United States and Canada and $813.4 million in other territories, for a total worldwide gross of $1.149 billion. It became the highest-grossing installment in the DCEU. Watch Jason Momoa in the second installment of the Aquaman series, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, which will hit the theatres on 25th December 2023.
