Details about the narrative are increasingly more publicly known as Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’s release date draws near. The main character of the sequel will be Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta, who is on a mission to exact revenge on Arthur Cury, nicknamed Aquaman, and his family. A son and his wife Mera make up this new family. Black Manta arrives ready to wreak havoc with the Black Trident in memory of his father.
In spite of the last movie’s events, in which Orm was imprisoned by Arthur after Arthur assumed his rightful throne as King of Atlantis, the brothers have formed an alliance to fight Black Manta, according to the recently released trailer and other narrative information.
The little 3-minute trailer that has been published offers a sufficient amount of action and adventure. The trailer claims that “one king will lead us all” as Orm tells his brother that he is “not as bad at this as you think.” Director James Wan explained to Entertainment Weekly how the two brothers would interact in the next sequel:
“I always started off by selling everyone on this. The adventure of Arthur and Mera was the first Aquaman. It was always going to be Arthur and Orm in the second film. Therefore, whereas the first was an action-romance film, the second is an action-bromance film.
Several performers returned to their roles and joined the cast of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, but one name stood out as being missing from both the cast list and trailer. Willem Dafoe, who played Nuidis Vulko, Arthur Curry’s mentor, trainer, and guide in the original Aquaman movie, will not be appearing in the follow-up. Thanks to his time as the Green Goblin in Spider-Man, Dafoe’s portrayal of villains has become rather common among fans. In contrast to his normal character, Dafoe portrayed one of the good people in the 2018 Aquaman film, helping Arthur prepare to take the throne of Atlantis as the legitimate heir under the guidance of Queen Atlanna.
Although several fans questioned if there could be a sequel without the guy who played Vulko, Wan has announced that the actor won’t be in the follow-up due to unavoidable schedule conflicts. The filmmaker said that Dafoe’s absence opened up a way to develop the roles of other characters.
Coming at an exciting time for the DC Extended Universe comes Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. Although it was initially approved as merely another film in the series, a lot has changed behind the scenes. As the new DC Studios’ directors, James Gunn and Peter Safran intend to reintroduce the DCU as the name of the brand. With the release of movies like Superman: Legacy and television programs like Creature Commandos, this new franchise will begin in earnest. However, it is unclear how Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom fit within this new timeframe.
After The Flash, which was supposed to reset the universe, came Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The first DCU character, rather than the first DCU movie, debuted in Blue Beetle, which was released in between the two movies. To reflect the modifications, Aquaman and the Lost Kindom had several reshoots. Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton both recorded appearances for Batman in anticipation of the movie’s release date in connection to The Flash, but those plans have since been abandoned. It’s unknown whether Momoa will reprise his role as Aquaman in the next series or whether they’ll start again. This would indicate that Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is the last installment in the DCEU series.
Due to COVID-caused delays, the film’s initial release date of December 16, 2022 was eventually changed to March 17, 2023. However, the new release date for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is December 20, 2023. Fans may anticipate experiencing the heart-pounding adventures of the King of Atlantis for Christmas with no additional delays in sight as of this writing.
