AQUAMAN AND THE LOST KINGDOM Officially Begins Production As James Wan Teases An Icy Location
Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom director James Wan has announced that production is now officially underway on the DC Comics sequel, teasing an icy-looking location in the process. Check it out...
James Wan recently revealed the official title of his upcoming DC Comics sequel, and the director has now taken to Instagram to announce that production is underway on Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
Wan shared a photo of a clapperboard (we assume "Necrus" is the working title) along with the caption "Day One #Aquaman2." The image doesn't give very much away, but it does confirm that the King of Atlantis (Jason Momoa) will be paying a visit to a frozen location at some point in the movie. Is this the Lost Kingdom of the title, perhaps?
Specific plot details are still under wraps, but it's assumed that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II's vengeful Black Manta will be the main villain this time. Ocean Master (Patrick Wilson) will be back in action, too, but he might well be fighting alongside his half-brother. There's also a good chance that The Trench will feature more prominently, given Wan's fondness for the deep-sea terrors.
Jason Momoa and Amber Heard will reprise their respective roles as Arthur Curry and Mera, and we recently found out that Game of Thrones alum Pilou Asbaek was in final talks to join the cast, though no details on his role were provided.
Aquaman 2 is set to swim into theaters on December 16, 2022
