James Wan, the director of Aquaman movie, just recently shared a sneak peek at what is in store for the next Aquaman sequel. He reveals that the next movie installment is entitled Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. What else to expect in this movie? Here are all the details of the said announcement.
James Wan’s Photo
Last Thursday, Director James Wan shared to his Instagram a photo that shows the title of the next Aquaman film. Warner Bros. then confirmed this post on their Twitter account as seen in the photo below. This film has been in the process of the production for a while now. And this post somehow confirms the progress of the anticipated film.
This announcement made people excited for the upcoming film. As you know, the first film, Aquaman released in 2018 made more than $1 billion in sales. And this record made the film the highest grossing film of all DC films aside from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy.
As posted by Gizmodo, Jason Momoa returns as Aquaman himself, as they enter the supposed Lost Kingdom. Joining him are other casts like Amber Heard (Mera), Arthur Curry (the rightful King of Atlantis after he defeated his brother), Patrick Wilson (Orm), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Black Manta/David Kane), and Temuera Morrison (Tom Curry) among others.
It is possible yet unconfirmed, but there are rumors that Nicole Kidman as Atlanna and Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko might return to the sequel.
Plot and Other Details About The Film
Previously, a poster came out and indicated “Unite the Seven” which refers to the seven kingdom of Atlantis. This was previously mistaken as connected to the Justice League but then clarified to be pertaining to the seven kingdoms. In the fictional realm of Aquaman, these kingdoms include Trench, Brine, Xebellian, the Fisherman kingdom, the Atlanteans, the Deserters, and a long-lost kingdom. And as you are thinking, it is the lost kingdom stated in the sequel. This gives an idea that the plot of the upcoming film may be about Arthur attempting to unite all the kingdoms of the ocean. From there, fans will also learn more about why this one kingdom was lost along the way.
Aside from expecting the sequel of Aquaman, there are other films that you can expect with the upcoming DC films. The Suicide Squad will be on theaters this coming August 6. Next year, DC has prepared a list of movies including The Batman on March 4, 2022, and The Flash Nov. 4, 2022. The year 2021 is also preparing something for you with Shazam! Fury of the Gods on June 2, 2023. Aside from all these, Blue Beetle, Batgirl, Supergirl, Green Lantern Corps, Static Shock and Wonder Woman 3 are also in the process.
Also, what’s clear is that it will be in theaters at the end of the year, specifically December 16, 2022. It may be quite far from now but production has been moved and stretched out due to pandemic restrictions. Also, theaters are limited as of the moment, but the good thing is that several platforms are now available for streaming.
