It’s official — Warner Bros. is developing a sequel to the superhero Action movie Aquaman, together with James Wan. This is hardly surprising, considering it’s the highest-grossing DC film of all time (even topping The Dark Knight Rises, at what you COULD call a little bit of a”sea change”), but always good to understand.
When will Aquaman two be published?
The sequel is presently scheduled to be published on 16th December 2022. With filming set to start next year, Aquaman 2 would strike cinemas four years after the first film Aquaman — although that could all change.
What happened in Aquaman?
Set some time after 2017’s Justice League, Aquaman saw Arthur attempt To maintain his fate as the King of Atlantis from his Orm.
Hell-bent on sparking a war between those above and below sea level, Orm enlisted the assistance of Black Manta to seal his place above the other championships that were submerged.
The only hope being, should his half-brother is, usurped by Arthur, always reluctant to recognize his duty as the King. Doing so meant acquiring an ancient relic that may be summoned from the sea’s true King, the missing Trident of Atlan. With it, Arthur was able to rally the support of all forces threatening the overworld and flip them against Orm.
However, in a scene, he was sworn by that a Black Manta Revenge, so we doubt this is the last we have heard of that storyline…
Who’s been cast in Aquaman 2?
Warner Bros. has yet to announce the cast, but we know that Jason Momoa Is keen to reprise the part of Arthur Curry/Aquaman, and you can probably expect to see Amber Heard (Mera) and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Black Manta). We may also see the return of Dolph Lundgren (as Nereus), Nicole Kidman (Atlanna), and Willem Dafoe (Nuidis Vulko), but nothing has been officially announced yet.
Ocean Master/Orm celebrity Patrick Wilson does seem to have supported his involvement in the sequel.
“I am slightly briefed [about Orm-related matters],” Wilson told the Hollywood Reporter. “I throw a little dart here and there. I will say,’ So, what about this?’ And [James Wan will ] say,’ Well, this is what I am thinking.’ I can tell you that his theories for Aquaman 2 are pushing it further.”
When will there be a trailer published?
We will not see a trailer until closer to the film’s actual release; Warner Bros. may choose to debut it in San Diego Comic-Con as was the situation for its first Aquaman. Whatever the case, it’ll likely have to be following WB and DC declare the complete title (which may not be Aquaman 2 if history’s any sign ).
What is going to Aquaman two be about?
It sees vengeance being demanded by Black Manta for Aquaman’s transgressions from the opening moments of the first film (and, of course, the rest). We only saw an origin story of the protagonist, so his next outing is the moment to unleash his entire potential with over 50 years worth of comics history as the arch-nemesis of Aquaman to look to for inspiration.
“I will tell you that [James Wan’s] theories for Aquaman two are pushing it further,” teased Wilson.
“I Would like to understand everything, but I have great respect for him and also the process to know until it is late in the game that I am OK staying out of it. There’s so much information because I do not wish to understand that I do not ask, and I don’t want him to go,’I can’t tell you that, however.’
“I have a few ideas of where Orm fits in, but I’m not gonna talk about them.”
