Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is a 2022 American action-fantasy film that continues the underwater adventures of the DC Comics character.
Directed by James Wan (Malignant; Aquaman; The Conjuring; Dead Silence; Saw) from a screenplay written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It; Aquaman; The Conjuring 2; Red Riding Hood; Orphan), based on the character created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger.
The movie stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta.
Meanwhile, Jason Momoa has revealed a new look for Aquaman on Instagram. The first image shows Momoa in a green and orange costume that reflects the original comic book look.
The second image shows Momoa’s film Aquaman in a darker costume. “Second round. New suit. More action. #aquaman Aloha j” he wrote.
James Wan commented: “Aquaman 2 is very heavily inspired by Planet of the Vampires. You can take the boy out of horror, but you can never take the horror out of the boy.”
Wan continued: “People were taken aback that I didn’t throw all that stuff away and make a dark, heavy film. But I didn’t feel that would have been right for it. So with the second film, I feel it will be easier for people to accept where we go because I’ve already laid the foundation.”
The first day of filming has commenced near London in England.
