Speaking recently to GQ, Jason Momoa shared some insight on what audiences can expect to see in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

The actor touched upon the prominence of superhero movies in cinema at the moment and highlighted the medium’s capacity to spread positive messages. In particular, Momoa highlighted Aquaman’s particular ability to hold a mirror to real-world environmental issues.

Speaking about the relevance of the Aquaman sequel to issues facing the world today, Jason Momoa said:

“These superhero movies dominate our market, which I have my own thoughts on because I love cinema, but we try to put out a positive message and go on an adventure. Aquaman is the most made-fun-of superhero in the world. But it’s amazing to be able to bring awareness of what is happening to our planet. It’s not some story that’s been told over and over, [it’s a] movie about what’s happening right now but in a fantasy world.”

The actor went on to say that “we really get to speed up what is going to happen to this earth, and it’s not because of aliens.” Superhero stories have often had messages to impart on issues facing the real world, whether it’s Captain America combating Nazism or the X-Men conquering prejudice, and it sounds like Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will continue this tradition.

Here is the upcoming Aquaman sequel’s synopsis:

When an ancient power is unleashed, Aquaman must forge an uneasy alliance with an unlikely ally to protect Atlantis, and the world, from irreversible devastation.

Directed by James Wan, the upcoming sequel stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Temuera Morrison as Arthur Curry, Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin, Vincent Regan as Atlan, Jani Zaho as Stingray, Indya Moore as Karshon, and Game of Thrones star Pilou Asbæk in an unknown role.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will hit theaters on March 17, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming DC film, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
