The sequel to Aquaman will begin filming in July. A few weeks before the start of production, the director James Wan has finally revealed the official title of the film.
The director shared a photo on Instagram in which the title can be read: Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom. “The tide is rising,” he wrote next to the snapshot.
In this second installment Jason Momoa will play Arthur Curry again, character who has given life four times: the first movie of Aquaman In solitary, League of Justice, the recent version of Zack Snyder’s Justice League and, the first time, in a small cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The film will also feature Amber Heard como Mera, Patrick Wilson as Master of the Ocean, Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta and Pilou Asbæk in a still unknown role.
At the moment the plot of the tape is unknown, although Wilson gave some clues to the tape in a recent interview with ET. “With James, when he comes back to do a sequel, it gets bigger, better, wider, more fun, with more action and more character work. It’s a lot of fun, “he dropped.
The film is written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, although Momoa told The Drew Barrymore Show that he also participated in the script. “I liked Aquaman so much that I participated in the writing of the sequel. We did the first draft and then James and David finished it. We have put all our hearts into this“he explained.
The first installment of the saga, released in 2018, was a box office success and went on to gross 1,148.46 million dollars. It is expected that Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom hits theaters on December 16, 2022.
