Aquaman star Jason Momoa praises the new leaders of DC Studios while also teasing a dream DCU project coming to fruition in the near future.
Aquaman star Jason Momoa teases that a dream DC Universe project of his is coming true with the launch of DC Studios. 2022 has been one of the rougher, if not the roughest, years for the DC brand when it comes to television and movie properties. Over on The CW, the Arrowverse/DC TV franchise took a massive hit with the network canceling Stargirl, Naomi, Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman. Warner Bros. Discovery also sent shockwaves through Hollywood by scrapping the Batgirl movie that was in the works for HBO Max, despite it wrapping principal photography back in the spring, as the studio sought to capitalize on a tax write-off to help make up their $3 billion in debt.
While the shake-ups have caused concern for the DC brand's future, Warner Bros. Discovery is not giving up on the superhero business anytime soon.
With the DC Films division coming to an end following Walter Hamada's departure, Warner Bros. Discovery is moving forward with DC Studios, with The Suicide Squad's James Gunn and Peter Safran set as the co-CEOs for the new division. DC Studios was officially launched on November 1, as Gunn appropriately celebrated his first day with a post of a Superman comic panel as he and Safran began overseeing TV, film, and animation under the new initiative.
With their plans yet to be revealed to the public in detail, it appears one long-time DCU actor will see one of their dream projects come true. In a recent interview with ET Canada, Aquaman and Justice League star Momoa responded about DC Studios being formed with Gunn and Safran as the leaders, sharing nothing but praise for the two leads while also teasing that under their management, "one of my dreams" is happening. See what Momoa shared below:
"I think with Peter Safran and Mr. Gunn at the helm now at DC, I'm very excited about that. There are a lot of cool things that are going to be coming up and one of my dreams come true will be happening under their watch, so stay tuned."
