Jason Momoa’s role as Aquaman/Arthur Curry received a tremendous reception, both critically and commercially. It was also touted as one of the best films produced under the DCEU banner. The sequel to the film, Aquaman 2, will see Momoa reprise his role as Arthur Curry. Momoa also recently paid tribute to a young fan who lost his life to cancer.
Amber Heard will be returning to portray Meera, which fans certainly aren’t too happy about. Willem Dafoe is also likely to return as Vulko. Jason Momoa previously revealed that the film started production earlier, and he is also involved in writing the script.
The first film also featured Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, who was the mother to Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry. She truly shined in her role and as reported earlier, she is likely to return for the sequel as well.
Jason Momoa also previously stated that the upcoming film will have a lot of comedy. While speaking with Total Film, director James Wan stated that the sequel will be more mature than the first film but will still be fun. The director called it “a movie that’s more mature [than Aquaman] but yet still retains its fun.” In the same conversation, Producer Peter Safran said, “[they’ve] have turned the dials up to 11.”
Aquaman 2 is slated to release in December of 2022 and we will have to see if it will far surpass the original in every way as many fans are eagerly waiting for it.
