‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ Title Revealed by James Wan


Aquaman 2 is getting ready to start production, and the director just announced the title on his Instagram.


It happened late Thursday night, or in Australia time, mid-Friday. James Wan posted a picture on his Instagram account (see below) to announce that the sequel to the 2018 billion-dollar hit from DC will be titled Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.


The image is clearly from a preproduction meeting, perhaps even the table read for the movie. Production is set to begin in July in Australia. James Wan will be returning to the director’s chair, with David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick writing the screenplay. Jason Momoa also revealed recently that he took part in writing the first draft of the screenplay.



Jason Momoa and Amber Heard are returning as Arthur Curry and Mera respectively, as well as Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta. Willem Dafoe, Temuera Morrison, and Nicole Kidman will presumably also return from the first film. So far, the only new actor reported for the new movie is Pilou Asbaek (Euron Greyjoy in the later seasons of Game of Thrones), but his exact role is still unknown.


Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will be the fourth DC theatrical movie coming out next year. Before that, The Batman will be released in March, Black Adam in July, and The Flash in November. This year, James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is coming out on August 6. The second Aquaman is currently slated for a December 16, 2022, release date. Additionally, there is a Peacemaker HBO Max series in the works, which is aiming for a January 2022 release date. We might get more details for these and many more upcoming DC projects this fall when DC FanDome returns in October.
