Jason Momoa has said he will be playing Aquaman for a long while yet, despite the major shake-up at DC studios.

The 43-year-old starred alongside the likes of Amber Heard and Patrick Wilson in 2018's Aquaman, in a film that grossed over $1 billion at global box office.

Sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was soon announced, and is set to release in December this year.

While Momoa was confirmed to be starring once more, some fans were worried that the role could be recast in the future due to the shake-up that James Gunn and Peter Safran are implementing at DC.

Since the pair were made the new co-CEOs of DC films, numerous major changes have been made.

Some examples have been the cancelling of Wonder Woman 3, Black Adam 2 being put on ice, and the confirmation that Henry Cavill will no longer be returning as Superman.

But it appears that Momao will not be one leaving as a result of the changes, with him silencing rumours in a new interview that he is heading for the exit door.

Speaking to Deadline, Momoa said: "I love [James] Gunn and so there’s gonna be some really cool things [that] they’re doing with DC. I definitely will be in more than just one.

"There’s room for me to play a couple different [roles].

"I’ve seen other actors do it. Yeah. I want a shot."

Regarding his future within the DC universe, Momoa added: "We have a special relationship. Warner Bros is a home. There’s a lot of things we’re going to be doing over there. I wish I could say more.

"I’ll always be Aquaman, and there’s a lot of evolution for that.

"So I’m not going anywhere and it’s very exciting."

While some have complained about the changes Gunn and Safran have made at DC Films, Shazam actor Zachary Levi recently spoke out in defence of the pair.

Levin said on an Instagram Live last month: "You have no idea the reasonings behind any of the decisions that are going on.

"The amount of conjecture and rumour mill and drama and nonsense that keeps getting spun around out there on Instagram and Twitter is laughable. It is unbelievably laughable.

"I would just say be patient, and give them some space and some time to try and really make something special.

"And I think something that DC deserves to have, and something that [Zack] Snyder tried to do and it just didn’t ultimately materialise, guys."
