One of the most popular DC movies, Aquaman is getting a sequel.
Generating $ 1.14 billion worldwide, the movie starring Jason Momoa as the titular character, was an unexpected favorite.
Screenwriter for the first movie, David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, was hired to write the sequel too. It is not surprising that Warner Bros.’ green-lighted the second movie after seeing the success of the first movie.
What is the release date of the new upcoming instalment?
DC finally announce the release date for the movie. People can see Aquaman 2 in theatres on December 16, 2022. It is, however surprising that the sequel is going to release four years after the original movie.
Producer Peter Safran claims that the people behind the movie are not in a rush to churn the film out. They also believe that taking the time to work on it would be beneficial and ultimately better for the audiences.
It should also be noted that many DC Extended Universe movies are in development between now and December 2022. The biggest one of them being Wonder Woman 1984, which is due in Summer 2020. Warner Bros.’ is also currently in the process of making Birds of Prey, The Batman, and The Suicide Squad.
What will be the new cast of the upcoming sequel?
Jason Momoa will, of course, be back as the titular King of Atlantis.
Since Mera was such a big part of the first movie, and Arthur Curry would not win without her, we can expect Amber Heard to be back too.
The villainous Black Manta played to perfection by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, had a limited role in the first movie. But the end credits show him, and Dr. Shin shows the film establishes them as a focus for the next film.
Randall Park plays Dr. Stephen Shin and shows himself only in the end credits scene.
Although his limited time in the movie, he made quite a great impression on the fans.
The team-up between these two will be a lot of trouble for Arthur, and we are excited to see how the King of Atlantis will come up on the top.
All the fans have to do is just wait a gap of two years and a half to get to see their favorite Aquaman riding the waves once again.
As the movie is going to release in December 2022, its quite a lot of waiting to do, but its all worth it.
Being a DC fan is tough these days!
