So what is this “Lost Kingdom”, anyway? Well, there’s a theory out there that I think is pretty accurate. Remember this poster?
This poster was released way back in 2015 in the run-up to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the assumption was that it referred to uniting the Justice League. But it’s looking as if it may have actually been a reference to the seven kingdoms of Atlantis. Remember, Justice League only had six members so it couldn’t have been a reference to that.
Those kingdoms of Atlantis are Trench, Brine, Xebellian, the Fisherman kingdom, the Atlanteans, the Deserters, and the lost city. Pretty cool.
Now, this is all just a theory that’s out there. Honestly, I think it’s too much to think there was this kind of plan so many years in advance, especially with all of the changes to the DCEU post-Snyder.
Then again, maybe all of this is right? We’ll find out when Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom opens December 16th 2022.
