Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’s first teaser has arrived
Aquaman has been treated as the punchline of the DC Comics universe for generations. It was the guy who talked to the fish and wore a bright orange shirt made of scales. The idea that he could one day have his own movie was so absurd, Entourage built an entire season around him like a joke. (Their Aquaman film was directed by James Cameron, Of All People.)
No one laughs anymore. Jason Momoa is playing Aquaman now, and after appearing in Batman vs. Superman and Justice League, his Aquaman film grossed $ 1.1 billion worldwide, making it one of the 25 highest grossing films already. He even wore the bright orange shirt in it! Will the wonders never cease?
Whether they do it or not, you better believe that Aquaman the franchise doesn’t end with box office numbers like that. Production on the sequel, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, is now in progress, directed again by James Wan. As part of DC FanDome, Jason Momoa took fans on a behind-the-scenes tour of the early days of filming for the sequel. He showed off some of the sets, and in particular the new Aquaman and Black Manta costumes from Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
The preview also included an interview with James Wan, who promised fans that Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is “more mature” than the first film but that it “still retains its pleasure”. Watch the Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom first look below:
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is scheduled to open in theaters on December 16, 2022.
