Aquaman 2 is on the way as the production is on-going. That new chapter in the DC Studios franchise also has a very special dedication attached.
2018’s Aquaman starring Jason Momoa as Aquaman/Arthur Curry had a tremendous reception, both critically and commercially. The film was touted as one of the best films produced under the DCEU banner. It has earned over $1.1 billion at the worldwide box office, making it the most successful DCEU film currently. Naturally, the sequel is receiving loads of attention.
Danny Sheehan, an 8-year-old boy, lost his life to brain cancer and was a huge Aquaman fan. So Momoa decided to dedicate the big budget film to his memory.
Jason Momoa previously revealed that the film starts production this month, and he is also involved in writing the script. Momoa recently took to Instagram and paid a touching tribute to Danny Sheehan.

Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Danny Sheehan, an 8-year-old from #Marshfield who has died of brain cancer. 💔 His love of Aquaman prompted a special call from the actor who portrays the superhero, Jason Momoa. Rest in peace, Danny. 🔱
Aquaman 2 will see Momoa reprise his role of Arthur Curry and Amber Heard will return to portray Meera, which some vocal fans certainly aren’t too happy about.
It is certainly great that Jason Momoa decided to pay such a warm tribute to the young boy. The film is slated to release in December of 2022 and we will have to see if it will far surpass the original in every way.
