AQUAMAN is one of the biggest hits for DC in 2018, almost crossing the records of the dark knight, leaving everyone with a surprise. The film collected nearly $1.1 billion worldwide, making it the highest-grossing films for DC. This underwater adventure is now having a sequel and its official. Although the ending of the Aquaman is certainly hinting for a sequel, it took few weeks for warner brothers to announce it officially. The original movie codirectors David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick is hired to write the sequel, and the director James wan is returning as a co-producer.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT:
the plot of Aquaman revolves around a half-human boy who’s born to sea queen and lighthouse keeper. The hero wants to do nothing with his royal heritage after his mother abandoned him but later gets stuck in a situation where he needs to choose between two worlds. The movie is all about “a little boy, he had these powers, and he didn’t hone them, so this whole journey of him going to become the king… the last frame of this movie you’re going to see him become what he’s destined to be” said the director. Although the storyline is a little blunt, the CGI effects and the presentation are top-notch and appreciable. So we can expect the sequel to have a good storyline when compared to the origin movie.
warner brothers announced the blockbuster sequel to be released on date Dec 16, 2022. Four years is undoubtedly a lot of time for a sequel, but the producer noted that the filmmakers need not rush for the sequel, giving a reasonable development time for it. The Screenplay of the first film wasn’t at its best, so we can expect a good screenplay this time.
it is unknown if James wan will return to direct the sequel, but Jason Momoa will be reprising his role as Aquaman. So we can surely expect Amber Heard will be back as Mera along with Willem Dafoe as Vulko. And the villain black manta is all set to return, During an interview with Uproxx, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II confirmed he would return as black manta in Aquaman 2.
