Fans will be able to return to Atlantis in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom for the first time since December of last year. Post-production is underway on the sequel to an undersea epic, which concluded filming earlier this month. During the period since Jason Momoa and Amber Heard’s first Aquaman film, the actor has appeared as Arthur Curry in Justice League and Peacemaker.
Even though Aquaman 2 isn’t expected out for another year, much information regarding the movie’s core storyline has surfaced. The Lost Kingdom will involve Momoa’s Aquaman “reluctantly teaming up” with Patrick Wilson’s Orm the Ocean Master to take on Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta, who has “gotten stronger” since the previous film, according to DC’s CinemaCon presentation, which featured an event-exclusive featurette. CinemaCon footage also stressed the sequel’s “bigger” atmosphere due to its “new characters and settings.'”
The Son of Arthur Curry Will Be Introduced in Aquaman 2
The royal family of Atlantis has grown by one.
The Direct can exclusively reveal that Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry and Amber Heard’s Mera will be introduced in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. There are no further specifics about the guy other than that he is an integral part of the plot.
Director James Wan has a lot of options when it comes to adapting Aquababy into a feature film. The possibilities are endless for him. He may be a mere plot device, or he could develop into a self-contained hero. ACCORDING TO MAX, HBO, A new Aqualad series starring Jackson Hyde is in the works. Still, given how Green Lantern Corps turned out, there’s a good chance this program will also involve multiple adolescent Atlanteans.
Plot: What We Do Know
Aquaman is seated on the throne by Warner Bros. Pictures.
It’s fair that storyline specifics are still a mystery for over a year until the film’s premiere. To save both Atlantis and the rest of the world from chaos and catastrophe, Aquaman must put his faith in a “menacing ally” who is “forced to trust in him” to do it.
Mother of Pearl 2 will have a more significant focus on environmental issues while also boosting the stakes from the first film, according to Jason Momoa at DC FanDome in 2021. While the sequel is more mature, it has the same heart that made the original so unforgettable, according to director James Wan. One of the “unknown allies” mentioned by Wan maybe Black Manta, who is still pursuing his vengeance against Aquaman. That will enthrall audience members. It’s a narrative of a globetrotter. We travel to a variety of places. It’s not scared to go all the way with its fantasy in this film.”
We now know that the central conflict will revolve around a fight between Aquaman and Black Manta, even though the details are yet unknown. As the publication date approaches, this provides enough information to pique the audience’s interest without giving any significant spoilers.

Aquaman: the Lost Kingdom, Starring Amber Heard, Is Rumoured to Be in the Works. Less Than Ten Minutes of Screen Time
According to a fresh rumor, Amber Heard would have “less than 10 minutes” of screen time in Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom.
“I hear Amber Heard has fewer than 10 minutes of screentime in Aquaman 2,” said scooper and film critic Grace Randolph on Twitter. Following allegations made by her ex-husband Johnny Depp that she physically attacked him and even sliced off his finger after hurling a whiskey bottle at him, this is the newest rumor about Heard.
In October 2020, Randolph said that Heard would feature in the Aquaman sequel, but the bad press could reduce her screentime. Amber Heard will be in Aquaman 2, she tweeted. In any case, they’re filming to minimize Depp and Heard’s parts in the event of negative headlines.
Aquaman 2’s new female character will also be introduced, she said. When Randolph reported in December 2020 that “James Wan wants next Aquaman female lead to be Asian actress,” he followed up on his scoop from October 2019.
As I said previously, they are bringing on this new female lead to balance things out and draft the script so that Heard’s role may be scaled down if necessary,” she said. Aquaman 2″ as of the right moment.”
According to a recent article, Warner Bros. reportedly didn’t want to bring Heard back for Aquaman 2 at all.
Although the original Aquaman picture made $1.1 billion at the box office, Warner Bros. has rejected Heard’s option for the sequel, according to Puck’s Matthew Belloni.
He suspected that Walter Hamada, President of DC Films, may have taken part in a deposition for Johnny Depp’s defamation lawsuit against Heard, which would make this information public.
It was reported that Hamada testified that Heard was first passed overdue of worries about her chemistry with star Jason Momoa, according to Belloni. On the other hand, Heard’s crew was convinced that the Depp incident was to blame for the lack of interest. They have made public mention of the difficulties they had with producing their debut film.
However, Aquaman 2 producer Peter Safran appeared to say in July 2021 that the studio had no intention of pulling Heard from the cast of the movie.
On whether the studio considers fan campaigns to remove performers from jobs, Safran said, “I don’t think we’ll ever react to pure fan pressure,” when asked whether this occurs.
He went on to say, “You’ve got to do what’s best for the movie.” In our opinion, it’s only fair that Amber Heard joins James Wan and Jason Momoa in the cast. “It was that simple.”
