Jason Mamoa Leaves DC Studios Meeting Excited to Be Lobo

He didn’t say it directly, but in so many words and based on previous details from James Gunn, it has become obvious what Jason Mamoa meant in his recent social media post. Jason posted a short on his Instagram stories literally as he walked out of the Warner Bros. DC meeting.

James Gunn Announces When New DCU Movies Start Filming

James Gunn has been good about responding to fans on Twitter and other social media since taking the helm as co-CEO of DC Films.

His specific answer was, “Peter and I will help to guide the already filmed projects for the next year, but the new slate won’t start until after Aquaman 2.”

He declined to answer one obvious question: What films were on the list? That makes sense, as it gives him a good deal of time to weave the current films into the fabric of the new DCU he has planned.
