First ‘Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom’ Footage Has Jason Momoa Back As King Of The Sea

I guess somebody reminded Warner Bros. execs that they still have one final DCEU movie to go and they better start telling people about it. A teaser for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom arrived yesterday, giving us our first actual footage of Jason Momoa in the anticipated sequel to James Wan’s $1B hit from 2018.

Fortunately, fans won’t have to wait long for more as the full trailer drops in just four days.

The sequel, once again directed by Wan, finds Arthur Curry aka Aquaman teaming with his defeated brother Orm (Patrick Wilson) to defeat the might of Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) who is back for revenge.

Also in the cast are Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Temuera Morrison, Randall Park, and Dolph Lundgren.

Here’s the synopsis: Having failed to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta, still driven by the need to avenge his father’s death, will stop at nothing to take Aquaman down once and for all. This time Black Manta is more formidable than ever before, wielding the power of the mythic Black Trident, which unleashes an ancient and malevolent force. To defeat him, Aquaman will turn to his imprisoned brother Orm, the former King of Atlantis, to forge an unlikely alliance. Together, they must set aside their differences in order to protect their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family, and the world, from irreversible destruction.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom opens on December 20th.
