A report from Variety regarding issues behind the scenes of “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” reveals that Jason Momoa was in talks to take on the role of Lobo in “Superman: Legacy,” a film already crammed with comic book characters appearing alongside the Last Son of Krypton. Besides introducing us to David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan as the new Superman and Lois Lane, the “Superman: Legacy” cast list is moving faster than a speeding bullet. Other names to be visiting Metropolis and James Gunn’s new take on the hero are Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor, Sara Sampaio as Eve Teschmacher, and Skyler Gisondo as Supes’ best pal, Jimmy Olsen.
Factoring in this growing guest list, what better timing for Momoa to ride in on a monstrous space bike as Lobo than after laying down his trident as Aquaman? Given the flurry of big names that is gradually building in Gunn’s upcoming directorial effort, it would make perfect sense (and be downright incredible) if Momoa were announced for the part mere days after drying off from the gold and green outfit he brought so much life to. Either way, there’s no better choice for the Main Man than the man who made “my man” his trademark quote.
