The title of Aquaman 2 has been confirmed by James Wan. Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom is the title of the film. On his Instagram account, Wan posted a photo from the film’s production meeting. He captioned, “The tide is rising”.
Jason Momoa will reprise his role as Arthur Curry, the titular half-human, half-Atlantean superhero. Mera, Orm, and Black Manta will be played by Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, and Yahya Abdul Mateen II, respectively.
The first picture, which was released in 2018, was a huge success for Warner Bros. and DC. It is currently the highest-grossing DC film ever. It brought in a total of $1.14 billion from all over the world.
Aquaman was a stark contrast to Zack Snyder’s previous DCEU flicks, which were dark and bleak. It had a lighter tone, both metaphorically and literally, and presented the kingdoms underneath the sea, including Atlantis, Arthur’s home, which was based on a fictitious ancient Greek city of the same name that was thought to have sunk after a calamity.
The film also brought back memories of the 1980s and 1990s adventure films, particularly the silly ones. Aquaman was up against King Orm, who had taken the throne of Atlantis, and the superhero was the only thing standing in the way of world dominance in the film.
The critical response to Aquaman 2 has been mainly favourable. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 65 percent rating. “Aquaman swims with its entertainingly absurd tide, delivering up CGI superhero extravaganza that provides energetic action with an emphasis on good old-fashioned fun,” says the critical consensus.
