Warner Bros has officially completed production on Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. On Instagram, Jason Momoa shared a video announcing that filming has officially wrapped on the DC sequel after shooting for half a year. In the video, Momoa also takes a moment to promote his eco-friendly shades with proceeds of the sales naturally going to Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii.
Momoa said, “Aw man, that’s a wrap. That’s a wrap, Aquaman 2. I have so much to share with you, I wish … I could tell you so much. What an epic day. I love you. So good to have been home to finish this, so many good surprises. Love you and…it’s been a long time. I’m taking a break. Aloha.”
Filming began in London in late June 2021. The sequel is set to be released at the end of 2022. Following several other DCEU films with 2022 release dates, including The Batman, Black Adam, and The Flash.
The Aquaman sequel has faced many delays from the pandemic to DC’s packed release schedule. But it looks like things are finally looking up for fans of the seafaring superhero. James Wan has come back to direct Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom, along with several other returning cast and crew members.
Jason Momoa, who’s said how he’s been left battered and bruised by all of the action sequences he’s filmed, reportedly contracted COVID-19 during production, with the news of his diagnosis breaking last month. Fortunately, as Momoa has now revealed, they have finally reached the end of production so the sequel can head into the editing room. It will be interesting to see if it’s as successful financially as the original.
