Expect a team-up between the brothers this time
That’s a wrap on Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom! The upcoming DCEU title has finished filming, and the news was announced by director James Wan with a set photo featuring himself with Jason Momoa and Patrick Wilson. Wan was the director of the first film which came out in 2018, which was a commercial hit and earned $1.1 billion globally.
Story and cast
Aquaman and the Lost Kingom will be another globe-trotting adventure, very much like the first film, but with a slight change. Arthur (Momoa) and his half-brother Orm (Wilson) were divided for the majority of the first film and only briefly reconciled before Orm was handed over to the Atlantean authorities. This time, the brothers will be teaming up to fight a greater evil. We got to see Aquaman’s new stealth suit last year, very similar to one he wore in the comics.
Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) has also received a costume upgrade, which is heavily inspired by the Silver Age comics. Orm, on the other hand was shown with a big beard and overall dishevelled look, as it’s clear that he was imprisoned. But the new photo shows that he goes back to his original look.
Aside from the three actors mentioned above, Amber Heard, Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren, and Randall Park will return. The newest cast member is Game of Thrones actor, Pilou Asbæk, whose role is unknown, but is most likely the villain.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is coming four years after its predecessor, but fans will be hyped nonetheless since the first movie was such an entertaining watch. The movie is set to release on December 16, 2022, the same date that Avatar 2 is scheduled for. We will have to wait and see if any one of these projects flinches and alters the date.
