We love seeing big names from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe team up, especially when that includes a tease of partnership. Yesterday, Jason Momoa, the actor best known for starring in Aquaman, posted a photo on his Instagram with Taika Waititi, the director of Thor: Ragnarok.
“LEGEND good times with the cuzzy bro @taikawaititi Can’t wait to make art with you. So much respect. Aloha j,” Momoa wrote.
As you can see, the two men look very friendly with some beers and big smiles. While there are no projects presently listed that involve both men, this caption is absolutely a promising tease towards a future alliance. Many fans were quick to comment on the post, thrilled to see Momoa and Waititi together.
“Two crazy guys on this planet come together… what can happen,” @mitta.shop wrote.
“This is going to be good, whatever it is,” @michellespurgeon added.
“What is this? A crossover episode?,” @shashank_iyer6969 joked.
It’s presently vague what this prospective project could be, but there are lots of other movie and shows from both men to look forward to. Waititi’s hit comedy movie, What We Do in the Shadows, is being turned into a television show which is set to premiere this month. The maker is also working on his next feature film, Jojo Rabbit. Besides writing and directing, Waititi is also portraying Hitler.
There’s currently no word on whether or not Waititi will helm another Marvel film, but he’s not done with the Disney properties. He is set to direct an episode of Disney+’s upcoming Star Wars series, The Mandalorian.
Momoa, conversely, is expected to reprise his role of Arthur Curry in an Aquaman sequel. He’s also going to be a part of the all-star Dune cast from Denis Villeneuve, the director of Arrival and Blade Runner 2049. As you can see, an alliance with Waititi wouldn’t be Momoa’s first time working with Marvel pros.
Momoa is also in development for an untitled comedy alongside Will Ferrell, and in production for See, a sci-fi drama series from Apple that will be directed by Francis Lawrence, who is best known for helming Constantine, I am Legend, and most recently, Red Sparrow.
