Jokes About Jason Momoa’s ‘Dune’ Character’s Name Are As Vast As A Desert Planet

Well, we suppose it doesn’t have the same ring as Han Solo.

People on Twitter are having a whole lot of fun mocking the name of Jason Momoa’s character in Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune,” which made $40.1 million in ticket sales during its opening weekend.

This means a whole lot of people saw the film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 science fiction novel in the past few days. Which also means that most probably had a similar reaction of pure amusement when they first heard the name of Momoa’s ruggedly handsome, sword-wielding space warrior of a character.

So, in short, the jokesters of Twitter have moved on to dunking on Duncan.
