Let no one say Jason Momoa takes this life for granted. My man is screaming-down-the-hallways pumped for what's next for DC's Aquaman. Just watch and listen to him shout "I love you, Warner Bros.!" as he races down the studio hallway. Studio hallways are usually boring as hell, but on this day they were filled with joy and laughter. Just enjoy:
Yes, "gleefully screaming" is a perfect description for how Jason Momoa exited that DC office. Jason Momoa has us pumped for what's next for Aquaman in the Warner Bros./DC Extended Universe. His happiness is infectious.
What the hell was he talking/screaming about? It's probably connected to Aquaman 2 in some way. It was just a few days ago that the news spread that David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick was hired to write the screenplay for the sequel. Maybe Jason Momoa was coming out of a pitch meeting, bursting with spoilers on the plot of Aquaman 2? All we can do is guess. Because, as he noted, we have no idea what's coming.
It's early days for Aquaman 2, and it's not clear yet if director James Wan will return. Hopefully he's holding out for all the money after the success of the Aquaman.
Aquaman isn't even done making money. It's still playing in some theaters after its December 2018 release. So far, the DC Extended Universe movie has made $1,121,986,102 worldwide. That's the most not just for the DCEU but for any DC Comics movie to date.
Aquaman will have its digital release on March 5, with Blu-ray/DVD on March 26. James Wan won't be doing a commentary but there will be plenty of behind-the-scenes featurettes. Plus, there's rumor of an Aquaman spinoff coming out following The Trench. That's in addition to the planned Aquaman 2 sequel.
One of the best parts of knowing Aquaman will be back on the big screen is knowing Jason Momoa will be promoting it the whole way. He's a blast to watch, in Instagram posts, and in other videos, tweets, and interviews. Momoa is a huge defender of the DC world, standing up for his boy Henry Cavill (Superman) and just having a great time in the franchise. He's a perfect ambassador for the DCEU.
Jason Momoa is busy beyond Aquaman, too. He directed the opening of Frontier Season 3, which came out a few months ago on Netflix. He was also just announced to join the insanely stacked cast of Dune. And he brought Aquaman to The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part in a little voice role.
