Aquaman 2: Hold up! After waiting so long for updates, DC has finally bought some peace in our lives. DC Universe has officially announced the release date for the Aquaman sequel.
What Is Aquaman All About?
Aquaman is a 2018 American superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name. The movie first premiered in London on November 26, 2018, and in the USA on December 21.
The story is set in the lost world of Atlantis. Thomas Curry rescues Atlanna, the queen of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, during a storm. They fall in love and have a son named Arthur, who has the power to communicate with sea creatures. Arthur then grows up to be the king of Atlantis.
The movie revolves around why Arthur returns to Atlantis and how he becomes the Aquaman.
When Will The Movie Hit The Cinemas?
Warner Bros has confirmed that the sequel will hit the cinemas on December 16, 2022, four years after the first movie was released.
The movie was supposed to release soon. But the current COVID-19 situation delayed the production of the sequel.
Who All Will Return And Will There Be Any Changes In The Cast?
No official cast news for the sequel is announced yet, but it’ll be a tragedy if Jason Momoa denies returning as Arthur Curry (Aquaman).
Patrick Wilson has already confirmed his return as Orm and has some briefs on what’s next we’ll get to see for the deposed King of Atlantis, stated: “I can tell you that even concepts for Aquaman 2 are pushing it even further.”
And as we have Black Manta as the main villain of the sequel, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II too confirmed his return: “Black Manta will be back, and hopefully, he’ll be causing a lot more trouble than he did in the first one.”
After so many rumors regarding the recasting of Mera, we might get see Amber Heard back as Mera.
Other than that we might get to see Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, and Dolph Lundgren as Nereus again.
What Will Be The Plot For Aquaman 2?
The sequel is likely to demonstrate the early days of the reign of Aquaman as a king. We might get to see the first threats that he has to deal with. Momoa says the whole thing is “mapped out”.
Apart from that, we can’t be sure of what to expect in the sequel, but the writer gave some hints about where we should look for some teasers.
“We’re not taking any one particular comic book story and adapting it, but if you want to know the vibe we’re going for, pick up pretty much any Silver Age story featuring Black Manta,” Johnson-McGoldrick told on Twitter.
That’s all we have, for now. Stay tuned for further details.
