Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom have finished production
In October of this year, DC FanDome attendees got their first glimpse of “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” including the first sizzle reel in which Momoa promises the film “tackles a lot of environmental issues and that the stakes are higher. “Director James Wan says this film will be” more mature, while still retaining its fun of giving audiences something new, something they’ve never seen before. ” Unlike previous efforts by the DCEU, Wan’s hero image isn’t ashamed to lean into his rich, fantasy world and all the palettes and energy such a realm offers.
Plot details are still under wraps, but we do know the sequel will expand on the vast Atlantean worldbuilding from the first film. In September, fans also got pictures of Momoa’s new costume for Aquaman featuring a dark blue color, no gloves, and alternate armor patterns. Momoa is reprising his lead role in the upcoming film alongside returning players Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren and Temuera Morrison. The film will be released next year, between “The Flash” and “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” on the DC slate.
“Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” is set to hit theaters on December 16, 2022.
