The highest-grossing film of the DC Extended Universe, Aquaman, took us for a watery spin. By far, it is one of the best movies based on DC characters. The superhero film released on December 21, 2018, and did more than well at the box-office. A sequel to the blockbuster is in works and will be released soon.
The highly anticipated movie, Aquaman 2, will see David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick as a screenwriter and James Wan as the director. The film will see Jason Momoa return as Arthur Curry/ Aquaman. It is still uncertain whether Amber Heard will return as Mera due to the allegations against her. Other cast members that might return for the sequel are Nicole Kidman, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, and Patrick Wilson.
Aquaman 2: When Will It Release?
Over the months, we have seen various releases being postponed due to the ongoing Corona pandemic. Production has taken a complete halt to ensure the safety of the crew, and the vigorous lockdowns in the country have made it difficult to continue with work. However, Aquaman 2 will not face any delay because of the late date that Warner Brothers have set for the movie.
With 2020 already releasing two DC movies, Birds of Prey and Wonder Woman 1984, Aquaman 2 has been slated to release on December 16, 2022, four years after the first movie. Hence, the film is highly anticipated. The sequel will also be followed by a spin-off named The Trench. The movie will be ‘horror-tinged’ and will explore the amphibious monsters that Aquaman and Mera face in Aquaman 2. An official date for the spin-off has not been released yet.
Aquaman 2: What Is The Storyline?
The details of Aquaman 2 are entirely under wraps, and not much has been revealed about the production of the movie. But, of course, Momoa has given juicy details as to what will happen in the film. It seems like the movie will explore his early days of reign after he becomes King Aquaman. There is also a possibility that the movie might focus on the first threat he faces after becoming king.
Jason Momoa has said that he has the whole thing ‘mapped out.’ He told Esquire, ‘I came in with a big pitch. I came in with the whole thing mapped out, and they loved it.’ Well. It seems that the movie will be held in a lot of surprises for us.
