The actress made her debut as Lois Lane in 2013’s Man of Steel which launched the current DC Films universe. Adams returned as the Daily Planet reporter in both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. With Henry Cavill walking away from negotiations to return as Superman in September, the future for Last Son of Krypton at the studio remains uncertain but Warner Bros. is continuing full steam ahead with the franchise with Aquaman this month.
In addition to Aquaman, Warner Bros. will push forward and expand the current DC Films franchise with Shazam! on April 5, 2019, Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A standalone Joker film set outside of the DC Films universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to hit theaters October 4, 2019.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an acition-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Aquaman will be released in theaters on December 21, 2018.
