Details regarding Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom are being kept under lock and key, but the sequel is expected to feature the return of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta and Patrick Wilson’s Orm. Pilou Asbæk, who is best known for playing Euron Greyjoy in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, is also on board in an undisclosed role.

Jason Momoa’s first cinematic solo outing as Aquaman earned 1.148 billion at the worldwide box office, making it the highest-grossing DC Comics movie to date. The character was last seen in the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League, which premiered on the WarnerMedia streaming service HBO Max.

Here is the synopsis for the first Aquaman film:

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-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.

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.

Aquaman is available on Digital HD, 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD. Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom is set to hit theaters on December 16, 2022.
