After 5 years, Jason Momoa is reprising his role as the half-human, half-Atlantean superhero Aquaman in the sequel “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.” This time, Aquaman must team up with his half-brother Orm to fight the ruthless pirate Black Manta, who is hellbent on revenge.
Black Manta was defeated by Aquaman in the first movie, but he’s back and more powerful than ever. He’s now wielding the mythic Black Trident, which gives him the power to control the seas. To defeat Black Manta, Aquaman will need all the help he can get, including from his former enemy Orm.
The trailer for “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” looks epic, with plenty of action, adventure, and special effects. It’s sure to be a hit with fans of the first movie. The movie is scheduled to be released in December 2023.
The cast of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom
The sequel to the 2018 movie Aquaman will feature the return of most of the original cast, including Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Patrick Wilson as Orm, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Amber Heard as Mera, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, and Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus.
Randall Park will also return as Dr. Stephen Shin, and he will be joined by new cast members Vincent Regan, Indya Moore, and Pilou Asbæk. James Wan is returning to direct the sequel, and David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick is writing the script.
The movie has attracted attention because it is the first major project for Amber Heard since her highly publicized defamation trial with her ex-husband Johnny Depp. During the trial, Heard claimed that her role in the sequel was cut down by the studio following the fallout from her divorce from Depp. However, director James Wan has said that the sequel was always envisioned to focus on the relationship between Arthur and Orm.
The movie is a bromance action-adventure movie
Wan has said that the sequel is a “bromance action-adventure movie.” He explained that the first movie was about Arthur and Mera’s journey, while the second movie is about Arthur and Orm’s journey. He said that the first movie was a romance action-adventure movie, while the second movie is a bromance action-adventure movie.
I’m excited to see Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom! It looks like it’s going to be a great movie.
