Yesterday, Aquaman director James Wan announced the upcoming DCEU sequel would be called Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom. Jason Momoa is set to return as the titular character, and the movie is expected to begin production next month. Aquaman 2 won't be the only DCEU movie in production this summer. Currently, both Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Black Adam are filming. The latter is going to star Momoa's real-life friend, Dwayne Johnson AKA The Rock. During a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon, Momoa talked about The Rock and revealed he wants to make a movie with the star.
Johnson came up because Fallon showed the adorable video of Momoa sending Johnson's daughter a video for her birthday because she's a huge Aquaman fan. Fallon asked if Momoa has known Johnson for a while and he revealed they met 20 years ago in Hawaii. "We've tried to get together and make a movie together. It's just, he's way busier than I am, and I'm pretty busy right now, so one of these days," Momoa shared.
"You have to make a movie together, you have to," Fallon added. "We will, and it's really cool now because he's kind of in my pocket so I can call him up and be like, 'Yo, Black Adam,'" Momoa added. Fallon thought Momoa was referring to the fact that Johnson now owes Momoa a favor for calling his daughter, but we think he was also talking about Johnson's recent entry into the DCEU. Now that they are both a part of the franchise, anything is possible. You can watch the interview below:
"After we ended the first one I went in with my writing partner and we dreamed up the second one and we went in and pitched the idea," Momoa previously said of Aquaman 2 on The Drew Barrymore Show. "The best thing I can give you is that I love it so much that I participated in the writing of it. And so, we did the first treatment and then James and our original writer David [Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick] finished it off. And all of our hearts are in it. Instead of just like getting a script and doing that, you are 100% being encouraged by your director and co-writers. So that's exciting for me and I'm excited to go over there. I leave in July and we start filming."
