The original co-writer of the movie David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick has been given the job for writing the script of the sequel as well. James Was and Peter Safran will return as producers. There is no confirmation about the director yet. Are you excited for the return of Atlantis? Then here’s all that you need to know.
When can you expect to see Aquaman 2?
The release date has been confirmed by Warner Bros. The movie is set to hit the theaters on 16 December 2022. The gap of four years between the two parts will keep the fans waiting for long. But after watching the first movie, they know that the wait is worthwhile.
2019 and 2020 are already stocked with movies including Joker, Shazam, Wonder Woman 1984 and Birds of Prey. There is also a possibility that The Trench spin-off will come out before Aquaman 2.
What will be back the cast of Aquaman 2?
The major players are expected to be back for the Aquaman sequel. This includes Jason Momoa aka Aquaman (Arthur Curry), William Safe (Vulko), Amber Heard (Mera), Patrick Wilson (Orm), Dolphins Lundgren (Nereus), Nicole Kidman (Atlanna) and Yahya Abdul-Mateen (Black Manta). Julie Andrews may come back as Karathen.
Momoa is the most excited of them all for Aquaman sequel. He even pitched an idea to Warner Bros during the filming of the first part.
What to expect from Aquaman 2?
All thanks to Momoa for giving us a hint about the plot of Aquaman 2. Regarding Arthur Curry, Momoa said,
He was born with the powers but he never really harnessed them, honed them. Obviously [the first film] is his whole origin story. We’ve seen him in Justice League, which is maybe two minutes of his old life, so we get to see where he came from. I think when he was a little boy, he had these powers and he didn’t really hone them, so this whole journey of him going to become the king… the last frame of this movie you’re going to see him actually become what he’s destined to be.
Villain of Aquaman 2: Black Manta and beyond
Atlantis made a lot of villains in the first part, namely Orm/Ocean Master (Patrick Wilson). Aquaman spared the life of his villainous brother after stopping him. So there are changes that he may return to haunt them once again.
Further, Dr Stephen Shin (Randall Park) success in rescuing Black Manta, who already collaborated with Orm in the first part. So we are likely to see the two again. Black Manta is Aquaman’s greatest enemy. So there is a huge possibility of his return with a bigger role in the sequel.
Apart from them, there are several other pretenders who want the throne and the monsters who want to destroy it. So Aquaman has a lot on his hands to deal with.
When will you get to see Aquaman 2 trailer?
As the Aquaman 2 release date is set for 2022, you won’t get to see a trailer anytime soon. So the fans would have to be a little patient and wait for the trailer till 2021.
